Louis and Rachel Rudinsky immigrate to the U.S. from Belarus in 1884, entering New York through Castle Clinton in Battery Park. They settle on the Lower East Side where they later open a dry goods store on Chrystie Street.
Louis buys his first property, a five-story brownstone on 54th Street and Lexington Avenue in 1905. Louis and his wife Rachel and nine children move into the brownstone after all the tenants vacate following the stock market crash in 1907. Louis tells his children never to sell the property.
Samuel Rudin, one of Louis' sons, builds the family's first project, a multi-family residential building at 1400 Benson Street in the Bronx and forms Rudin Management Company in 1925. By 1928 the family completes building 144 West 86th Street.
Sam and his fledgling company develop their third building, 115 West 86th Street.
The Rudin family builds 295 Central Park West and acquires 25 West 81st Street, 20 West 86th Street, 40 West 86th Street, 27 West 86th Street, 544 East 86th Street, and 241 Central Park West.
Sam's sons, Jack and Lewis, join the family business after serving in the Army in World War II. The family develops 300 East 57th Street, which is the first apartment building to be erected in New York City after World War II, as well as 65 Central Park West and 945 Fifth Avenue.
The family builds two more residential buildings, 40 Park Avenue and 2 Fifth Avenue, one of New York City’s first contextually designed buildings.
In 1955, the family builds its first office building at 415 Madison Avenue and leases the space to Scientific American. In 1958, the family builds their second commercial office building at 355 Lexington Avenue.
The family develops nine commercial and residential projects in the 1960s, generally developing two buildings at a time. In 1960, 80 Pine Street opens and in 1961, One Whitehall Street opens. 215 East 68th Street opens in 1962, followed by 845 Third Avenue in 1963 and 641 Lexington Avenue (the site of the original brownstone that Louis purchased in 1905) along with 110 Wall Street in 1964.
The family opens 55 Broad Street in 1965; 345 Park Avenue, its largest commercial office building, in 1968; and One Battery Park Plaza, in partnership with the Rose Family, in 1969.
In 1971, as New York City faces one of the worst fiscal crises in its history, Lewis Rudin co-founds the Association for a Better New York to bring business, civic and political leaders together around the shared goal of making New York City a better place to live, work, and visit. As a part of this effort, Lewis convinces property owners to prepay their taxes, helping save the city from insolvency. The family develops 41 Madison Avenue and 254 East 68th Street in 1974.
In 1976, the family builds 211 East 70th Street. That same year, Jack and Lewis Rudin sponsor the first five-borough NYC Marathon and present the winners with the Samuel Rudin Trophy, dedicated to their late father Sam, a long distance runner. Lewis’ son William (Bill) and Jack’s son Eric join the company and become the third generation of Rudins to work in the family business.
The third generation, including Lewis' daughter Beth and Jack's daughter Madeleine, becomes more active in the business. The family turns its attention solely to commercial developments, opening three more buildings in the 1980s: 560 Lexington Avenue, which wins the Bard Award for its innovative design, in 1980; 40 East 52nd Street in 1986; and 1675 Broadway, one of the first new office towers on the west side of Manhattan, in 1989.
In 1993, Lewis and Jack become the company's co-chairmen, and Bill Rudin is named president of Rudin Management Company. Bill helps to form the Downtown Alliance, an initiative to reinvigorate Manhattan's downtown business district, which at the time has over 30 million square feet of vacant office space.
In 1996, the family re-opens 55 Broad Street and renames it "The New York Information Technology Center," the first fully wired office building in the world. In 1998, Reuters selects the family to design and build its North American headquarters at 3 Times Square. In 1999, the company buys 32 Avenue of the Americas from AT&T, which becomes the only office building in the portfolio not built by the family.
3 Times Square, which incorporates state-of-the-art systems and a focus on sustainability, opens fully leased in 2001. The Association for a Better New York (ABNY) names Bill Rudin as Chairman in October 2001. In 2002, Mayor Michael Bloomberg officially names 52nd Street and Park Avenue "Lew Rudin Way" as a tribute to Lew’s lifelong dedication to New York City.
In 2005, the Rudin family celebrates 100 years of owning real estate in New York City. In 2007, the family is officially named a partner in the redevelopment of St. Vincent's Hospital in the West Village. Bill’s children, Samantha and Michael, join the company in 2007 and 2008 respectively, becoming the first members of the fourth generation to join the business.
In 2009, Mayor Bloomberg and the family announce the creation of "The Hive @ 55," the city's first short-term co-working space for digital media freelancers.
Also in 2009, the family begins redeveloping 130 West 12th Street, one of the buildings that was part of the St. Vincent’s Hospital complex. The project receives Global Green USA's Sustainable Design Award, becoming the first residential redevelopment in New York City to attain LEED Gold Certification.
345 Park Avenue becomes the official headquarters of the NFL.
In 2012, the family partners with Global Holdings to redevelop the former St. Vincent's hospital as a residential condominium named The Greenwich Lane and receives final approvals from the City. In 2013 the company pilots Nantum OS, a building operating system developed in-house that optimizes energy consumption to improve building efficiency. In 2014, the family net leases 110 Wall Street to WeWork.
In 2015, Rudin establishes a wholly owned subsidiary, Prescriptive Data, to oversee the further development of Nantum. The family also becomes active in the venture business, investing in companies focused on real estate technology, or PropTech. The family buys out BayernLB, owner of 25% of 560 Lexington Avenue, and sells 126 Newbury Street in Boston.
Also in 2015, the family partners with Boston Properties and WeWork to begin developing a 675,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art building at the Brooklyn Navy Yard called Dock72. In June of the same year, Bill Rudin is named Chairman of the Real Estate Roundtable in Washington DC, serving a 3 year term.
In July 2017, Bill and Eric Rudin are named co-chairmen of Rudin Management Company. Bill Rudin is named chairman of REBNY, beginning his three-year term in January 2018. Eric Rudin is named Chair of the Board of Directors of the Times Square Alliance in April 2018.
In October 2018, New York City unveils "Jack Rudin Way" on the corner of 51st Street & Park Avenue in honor of Jack. The street corners on either side of the company's headquarters are now named in recognition of the brothers' contributions to the City.
