Cushman & Wakefield’s 100-year history began in New York City. The brothers-in-law J. Clydesdale Cushman and Bernard Walker opened the firm’s first office at 50 East 42nd Street in Manhattan on November 1, 1917, initially focusing primarily on landlord representation. Within 10 years the company was ready to expand to a larger office just down the street, occupying the 2nd floor of 30 East 42nd Street. By the 1940s, the company had developed a reputation as one of the top commercial real estate brokerages in New York City, where it operated out of its main office at 281 Madison Avenue.

In 1968 Cushman & Wakefield opened its first office in New Jersey, in Lyndhurst. The New Jersey market today boasts 200 employees, including 100 brokers and sales professionals across four offices. In 1980 Cushman & Wakefield expanded into Connecticut, opening an office in Stamford. The company’s final expansion in the New York Tri-State Region came with the opening of offices in Queens in 1999 and Brooklyn in 2002.

In 2014 and 2015 two significant changes further increased Cushman & Wakefield’s position as one of the world’s and the New York Tri-State Region’s leading commercial real estate firms. In 2014, the company acquired Massey Knakal Realty Services, New York’s No. 1 Investment Sales firm. Then in 2015, Cushman & Wakefield merged with DTZ, creating one of the largest commercial real estate companies in the world, with a robust and comprehensive platform of services.

The Community FoodBank of New Jersey provides a meaningful volunteer experience in a positive, safe environment that is perfect for individuals, families, and groups of almost any size.

Most recently, on October 18, 2016, 25 members of our New Jersey offices assisted the Community FoodBank of New Jersey by sorting and packing boxes of food that were delivered to those in need.

The Community FoodBank of New Jersey distributes food, provides education and training, and develops programs to help hungry people throughout the state.

Panasonic New York City Triathlon
Beginning in 2013, a Cushman & Wakefield team of 17 professionals from our Manhattan offices joined thousands of competitors from across the globe in the New York City Triathlon. Each year Cushman & Wakefield employees gather for this event to raise donations for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

American Heart Association Walk
Members of Cushman & Wakefield put their best foot forward and took part in the American Heart Association Walk on Sunday, October 23, 2016, in Roseland, NJ. The walk included a one-mile path and a three-mile path that participants chose from. The event raised significant funds for the fight against heart disease and strokes.

Covenant House
Cushman & Wakefield supports Covenant House’s mission of providing extensive services on behalf of homeless and trafficked youth in NYC. Most recently, on November 9, 2016, a team led by Deborah Tomasi, Managing Director, brought together a philanthropic-minded Cushman & Wakefield team to pursue Covenant House’s mission of providing support to those in need in NYC.

These dedicated individuals slept out on cold snowy sidewalks of New York City, raising critical funds and awareness. This is the second year that the New York City office has participated, and through the team’s efforts a significant amount of much-needed funds were donated to this worthy cause.

On November 9, 2016, a team led by Cushman & Wakefield’s Deborah Tomasi, Managing Director, held its first fundraiser benefit for Covenant House, successfully raising more than $75,000 for this important cause.
