Larry Silverstein is the chairman of Silverstein Properties and one of New York's most prominent developers and landlords.

Though his firm owns and manages more than 35 million square feet of office, residential and retail space and has as much as $10 billion worth of development activity in the pipeline. Its name has become almost synonymous with the redevelopment of the World Trade Center site.

Silverstein's association with the site began in July 2001, when he completed what was then the largest real estate deal in New York history – a 99-year lease on the 10.6 million-square-foot Twin Towers for $3.25 billion. The towers were destroyed six weeks later in the September 11 terrorist attacks.

His firm rebuilt 7 World Trade Center across from the site of the Twin Towers by 2006. The 1.7 million-square-foot office tower is almost fully leased at some of downtowns highest asking rents. Silverstein is also built another three new World Trade Center towers, along with the Port Authority's 1 World Trade Center. These three towers are the culmination of lawsuits over insurance tied to the Twin Towers, as well as negotiations with the Port Authority over financing. 1 World Trade Center opened in 2014.

Aside from the World Trade Center site, Silverstein has been involved in numerous other high-profile New York projects and properties. These include the Four Seasons hotel and condo planned for 99 Church Street, which at 912 feet would be the city's tallest residential tower; the office buildings 120 Broadway, 120 Wall Street, 529 Fifth Avenue and 570 Seventh Avenue; and the office buildings 575 Lexington Avenue and 1177 Avenue of the Americas, which, together at more than $1 billion, was the last big Manhattan building trade before the Great Recession.

Silverstein is a former chairman of REBNY. He was born in Bedford-Stuyvesant, and attended N.Y.U . and Brooklyn Law, going into real estate with his father Harry and then-brother-in-law Bernard Mendik in the late 1950s. By the 1980s, Silverstein Properties was one of the fastest-growing private landlords in New York.
