Jeffrey Katz

CEO & Principal Owner

Jeffrey Katz is CEO and principal owner of Sherwood Equities. Jeffrey received his MBA from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and his Bachelor’s degree from the University of Massachusetts. He has owned, developed, and managed properties valued at over $4 billion. His work in the New York real estate market over the past several decades has actively reshaped the areas now known as Times Square and Hudson Yards. Jeffrey also developed the luxury residential condominium buildings at 500 West 21st Street, The Coronado, The Saratoga, 130 Barrow Street, and 330 West End Avenue, all of which innovatively combine residential property with commercial space and other amenities. His unique expertise has driven Sherwood’s reputation within the real estate industry and lending community as a company whose consistent success hinges on its conservative approach.

As the developer of 1 Times Square, 2 Times Square, and 1600 Broadway on the Square, Sherwood leased and continues to operate three of Times Square’s most prominent properties. In particular, 2 Times Square has been widely recognized for its unique integration of seven super signs into the building’s facades. This project was honored by the Municipal Arts Society and received one of The City Club of New York’s 27th Annual Bard Awards for Excellence in Architecture and Urban Design. As a result of the total integration of buildings and signage in Times Square, Jeffrey formed Sherwood Equities’ subsidiary—Sherwood Outdoor, Inc. Jeffrey is an active board member of the Times Square Alliance.
