Forest City Enterprises, Inc

Real Estate - Property Mgt

We are Forest City Enterprises, Inc., an NYSE-listed national real estate company with $10.5 billion* in total assets. The Company is principally engaged in the ownership, development, management and acquisition of commercial and residential real estate and land throughout the United States.

Founded in 1920 and based in Cleveland, Ohio, Forest City’s diverse portfolio includes hundreds of premier properties located throughout the United States. We are especially active in our Core Markets – New York, Washington, D.C., San Francisco, Boston, Dallas, Los Angeles and Denver – where we have overcome high barriers to entry and developed a unique franchise. These are great urban markets with strong demographics and good growth potential.


The history of Forest City reads like a classic re-telling of the American dream. The Company was founded in 1920 after the Ratowczer (later changed to Ratner) family emigrated to the U.S. Through hard work and good fortune, the family lumberyard business - built by four siblings, Charles, Max, Leonard and Fannye Ratner - grew and expanded beyond the founders' wildest dreams. The Company went public in 1960 and has established a national reputation as a property owner, manager and developer of some of the largest, and most prestigious, real estate projects in the country. Today, Forest City is driven by a commitment to our Core Values and a legacy of leadership that includes three generations of the Ratner, Miller and Shafran families.
