    Jody Durst

    Durst Organization
    One Bryant Park
    New York, NY 10036

    Joseph Jody Durst is president of his familys Durst Organization, a real estate investment and development firm. He is the son of former company chief Seymour Durst, and grandson of the companys founder Joseph Durst.

    Jody began work with the family firm in 1984, working in the construction department. He then moved on to directing the operations of 8 million square feet of commercial office space and supervising new construction projects in midtown Manhattan. He also directed the investigation and application of energy-efficient and environmentally responsible technologies for The Durst Organization.

    In 2005 Jody and his cousin Douglas worked together as leaders of The Durst Organization, and under their guidance the company built the nations first sustainable skyscraper, 4 Times Square, and the first LEED Platinum high-rise office tower, The Bank of America Tower at One Bryant Park.
    Jody holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from Tufts University.

    I think the drive for sustainable development initially came from our grandparents, who taught our respective parents the importance of our natural resources, and they passed that down to us, Jody told the New York Times in 2009, as he prepared to take sole leadership of the firm after news his cousin Douglas was stepping aside.

    Four Times Square was a great learning experience and a stepping stone for our new building (Bank of America Tower), and we try to improve upon each project as we go forward. -GM
