Partner Profile
The Tower Companies is a family-owned and privately held real estate development and Property Management Company with properties located in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area and was founded in 1947 by Albert Abramson. Tower owns, develops, and manages over 5 million square feet of office buildings, office parks, lifestyle centers, regional malls, eco-progressive live-work-play communities and hotels with over 8,000,000 SF in the development pipeline and is known among peers and the entire industry to be a green building pioneer and leader. In 2004, The Tower Companies certified the first LEED® multi-family apartments in the U.S. called Blair Towns and now 90% of commercial and multi-family residential properties, which are both owned and directly managed by Tower, are LEED® certified and 85% are ENERGY STAR® certified. In addition, Tower publically reports GHG emissions to The Climate Registry and offsets 100% by purchasing renewable energy and carbon credits to support wind farms and other related projects around North America. Today, Tower Companies is humbled to be recognized as an international authority in the industry, and to have been honored for its commitment to sustainability and energy independence by numerous national organizations and federal agencies, including US Green Building Council, US Department of Energy and the US Environmental Protection Agency.
