|The story of Cafaro...the
family and the organization...is an extraordinary one. It’s a
tale punctuated by real estate development achievements that
stretch from coast to coast. William M. Cafaro and his brother
John started out developing properties for grocers.
In 1949, they founded a company with
a new goal: To know and serve the markets they selected with
retailers people needed and wanted. As the industry evolved, so
did the company. By the 1960's Cafaro was building regional
malls. Currently our portfolio encompasses more than 50 projects
totaling more than 30 million square feet of space
Now, as the company has surpassed its 60th birthday, a third
generation of Cafaros is putting its own imprint on the
business. Co-Presidents William A. Cafaro and Anthony Cafaro,
Jr. bring their own unique talents, vision and techniques, all
the while maintaining the philosophy to which they were born.
They continue to redevelop and reposition the property portfolio
with an eye toward expansion.
Stability and integrity remain the watchwords for Cafaro’s
professionals. They manage our core functions...management,
leasing, marketing, security, construction and
maintenance...in-house to ensure the highest possible quality
for tenants and shoppers. Many of our professionals have been
with us for decades, bringing a rare mix of skill and
continuity. They’re part of the family too.
