Silverstein Properties CEO Marty Burger takes helm at ULI

The Urban Land Institute has named Silverstein Properties CEO Marty Burger the new chairman of ULI New York.

Burger will succeed current chairman Robert C. Lieber, who has led ULI New York since July 2013.

“Our district and national councils are the foundation for ULI’s collective impact. They make an incredible difference in the quality of our work and the fulfillment of our mission. We are delighted that Marty will be leading ULI New York and building on its achievements as one of our most successful district councils,” said ULI Global CEO Patrick L. Phillips.


“We will all benefit from his considerable talent, industry expertise, thoughtful guidance, and steadfast commitment to our organization.”

As one of the leading voices in l real estate, Burger has been a ULI member since 1995 and has served on ULI New York’s advisory board since 2014.  He is also a global ULI trustee, a governor of the philanthropic ULI Foundation and chairman of one of ULI’s Urban Development/Mixed-Use Product Councils. Burger was a co-chair of the host committee for ULI’s 2014 Fall Meeting held in New York City and this year served on the jury for its first-ever Awards for Excellence in Development.

“It is an incredible honor to lead ULI New York and continue serving an institution that has had such a positive impact on development and on my own career,” said Burger. “I thank Bob Lieber for being one of the true leaders of our industry. He will always be a valued ULI colleague and friend.”


Burger’s experience in development makes him eminently qualified to take the helm at ULI New York, which serves as the top forum for New York’s real estate professionals and advocates.

“As one of the savviest, most creative and talented executives in real estate, Marty Burger is a terrific choice to be the new chairman of ULI New York,” said New York City Deputy Mayor Alicia Glen.

“Bob Lieber transformed ULI New York during his time as Chair. Under his leadership, ULI New York has become an essential forum for discussion among real estate industry experts, advocates and public policy makers,” said Carl Weisbrod, New York City Planning Commission chairman.
