Company History 

Empire State Realty Trust, Inc. traces its rich heritage back through its predecessor Malkin Holdings LLC, whose leadership in real estate goes back to the creation of a realty syndicate by Lawrence A. Wien in 1934. The Manhattan office properties that are included in its initial portfolio stand as a testament to its pedigree of leadership in real estate.

They were all acquired between 1950 and 1979 through the business ventures of Lawrence A. Wien and Harry B. Helmsley, and later with his son-in-law and the Company Chairman Emeritus, Peter L. Malkin.
