Founder, Chief Executive Officer, Steiner + Associates
"Performing mixed-use retail environments are sought after by tenants, property owners, civic leaders and consumers. We are uniquely qualified to create sustainable income streams and high quality assets by developing centers that will be with us for generations. We understand how to create the sense of place people desire in these environments and how design for
Mr. Steiner formed Steiner + Associates in 1993 with a vision of creating welcoming, sustainable, pedestrian-friendly, mixed-use Town Center destinations—environments for people to not only shop, but also to live, work and play. Over the past 18 years, the company has turned that vision into reality by developing more than 7.4 million square feet of mixed-use space across the United States.
Mr. Steiner oversees all development, leasing and management efforts for the Steiner + Associates’ portfolio. He travels extensively to meet with community leaders and tenant partners and maintains a "hands-on" approach to development and property management. He is frequently invited to address community, civic and professional organizations in the U.S. and abroad to share his unique insights and perspectives into the retail real estate development world.
An eager student and ardent admirer of urban form who speaks four languages, Mr. Steiner’s design and development approach emphasizes critical mass, proper scale and space. Leisure-time uses and public spaces as anchors are featured prominently in every Steiner + Associates project. The projects are designed and sustained by employing the same fundamental principles of town planning that have created and maintained vibrant urban city centers for more than a century. By seamlessly integrating dining and leisure-time elements into inviting open-air mixed-use environments and public spaces that encourage interaction and exploration, Steiner + Associates has recreated the energy and vitality of those urban centers, while expanding traditional definitions of mixed-use design along the way.
Mr. Steiner has held a variety of positions in civic and professional organizations. He serves as Board Member of the Richard M. Ross Hospital, as Trustee of the International Council of Shopping Centers, as Director of the International Council of Shopping Centers Foundation, and is a Board of Trustee member of the New Albany Community Foundation, the Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital, and Richard J. Solove Research Institute Foundation. In the past, he has served as President of the French-American Chamber of Commerce in Houston, President of the Coconut Grove Chamber of Commerce, Director of Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau, and President of the Simon Kenton Boy Scout Council of Central Ohio.
