Eric is well known for unique investments where he applies highly creative strategies to solving
complex challenges, adding value in all market environments. Allied has consistently produced
positive returns while prioritizing downside protection over risk, an approach that has
consistently generated returns well in excess of the overall market.

Allied has become synonymous with vision, stewardship, and trust. Eric believes, “Success is not

and our community. When people work together, 1+1 = 3.”
Some of Allied’s most notable investments include the purchase of the Citigroup Center, 1 East
57th St., and the legendary Brill Building, along with the redevelopment of 285 Lafayette St. in
New York City, in which Eric partnered with the ten residential artists that occupied an 1890s
former chocolate factory in Soho. Upon completion to condominium, the ten families received
ownership of their units and Allied received ownership of the balance. Finally, over the last
decade, Eric has also led Allied to consolidate a 350,000-sf development site on Bryant Park.
More recently, Eric has broadened Allied’s focus to include Miami, where he acquired the iconic
Savoy Hotel and is currently restoring it to its former Art Deco glory. Other projects include a
200,000-sf development site currently in predevelopment, a large retail property on Fifth Street,
and various investments in Little Haiti.
In total, Allied has acquired more than 30 commercial, retail, hotel, and residential properties and
originated numerous private mortgage loans. Additionally, the group acquired Rose Management
