THE DINERSTEIN COMPANIES The luxury apartment and condominium market in the U.S. has been growing steadily for a few years, and right at the heart of this trend is a Houston-based, 3rd generation company with a motto “creating the best places to live”. The Dinerstein Companies (TDC), established in 1955, has shifted over the past several years from building 3-story walk-up housing units to some of the most sought-after and attractive large-scale residential buildings in the country. The company has maintained a family feel but there is no doubt that the complexity and scope of its projects have increased substantially over the past decade. Overall, TDC has developed over 52,000 units in 26 states- totaling $1.3 billion in property values. While that is quite impressive, even more so is the projected forecast that the company will do another $1.3 billion in revenue over the next 3-5 years. This growth is due to a strong and multifaceted management team that selects projects that is in TDC’s wheelhouse. The growth can also be derived from a quick look at their average project value. Ten or fifteen years ago their average project was around

Project commissioning assures that all systems and components of a building are designed, installed, tested, operated, and maintained according to the logistical requirements of the owner/developer (which is also TDC typically). TDC buildings do not just look good, they are built with high standards. This is part of TDC’s marketing plan as well. In 2015, TDC won a Builder of the Year award from the U.S. Green Building Council. The company goal is to build at a higher level and efficiency than the Code minimum- and building to LEED or USGBG guidelines are a means of achieving that.
