Meet the team

Founded in 1915 by Joseph Durst, The Durst Organization is still owned and managed by the Durst family. Today, Joseph’s grandchildren, Jody and Douglas, lead the organization, while the next generation works side by side with the company’s exceptional management, construction, finance, legal, leasing, and building services departments.

Everyone with The Durst Organization plays a role in realizing the company’s mission statement: We build, own, and operate many of the world’s most innovative and efficient buildings. We create value for our tenants and partners by developing sustainable residential and commercial properties in which people live, work, and thrive.
