Who We Are
Washington Square Partners (WSQ) was founded in 1994 by a group of real estate professionals who identified a critical gap between consultants offering analytic research and reports and developers building projects. Since then, WSQ has become a trailblazer in complex real estate projects and transformative developments with expertise in navigating complicated government approval processes. Many of our notable projects have made a lasting impact on New York City and led to the revitalization of neighborhoods. Select highlights include collaborating with Empire State Development Corporation on the redevelopment of the US Post Office into Moynihan Station, developing City Point in Downtown Brooklyn, (the borough’s largest mixed-use development), securing approval for the expansion of New York-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital in the Park Slope, and constructing The Shops at Marble Hill, the first shopping center to open in the Bronx for several decades.
By fostering ongoing partnerships with New York’s leading architects, planners, engineers, contractors, and attorneys, we stay at the forefront of market conditions, financing trends, and complex government review processes. Our team’s extensive public-sector experience enhances our ability to ensure successful project navigation through all approvals and development phases.
In addition to our core expertise, WSQ has strategic affiliations with respected agencies, which further enhance our capabilities. Arch Brokerage, a licensed real estate brokerage, provides comprehensive services to facilitate seamless property transactions. Kingsbridge Associates specializes in project management, ensuring the successful execution of our clients’ projects. These strategic partnerships solidify our position as a trusted and comprehensive solution provider in the real estate industry.
