Our Mission

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.

Sustainability Initiatives

The Durst Organization thoughtfully integrates design, engineering, materials, and construction to conserve water, reduce energy needs, and promote the wellness of residents and tenants living and working in Durst properties. From green roofs to beehives and organic waste composting, black-water treatment systems to a 4.6-megawatt cogeneration plant, sustainable design, construction and management practices are integral to every project The Durst Organization undertakes.

The Durst Portfolio

The Durst Organization owns and operates more than 13 million square feet of commercial office space and 3,400 rental residences across multiple mixed-use buildings.
