Silverstein Links With Poland’s Richest Man in Real Estate

Larry Silverstein, after more than five decades of investing almost entirely in New York City real estate, is making his first foray abroad in Poland, one of Europe’s most in-demand property markets.

The developer of office towers at Manhattan’s World Trade Center site has teamed with Jan Kulczyk, Poland’s richest man, on a 500 million-euro ($666 million) venture to buy and develop properties, beginning in Kulczyk’s home country. They made their first purchase, an eight-story Warsaw office building, in August, and are working on plans to add towers to the Polish capital’s skyline.
