• Citadel Management Co. Inc. is founded in 1952 to manage the properties of its sister company, Urban Relocation.

• Urban Relocation Company was founded by partners Seymour Shapiro and Phil Lapidus, who specialized in the relocation of tenants affected by these monumental projects.

• At the time, Urban Relocation was vacating rundown buildings to make way for several historic public works and infrastructure projects headed by Robert Moses, New York States’ master builder of the 20th century.

• Projects included the Cross Bronx Expressway, Lincoln Center, Lincoln Towers, Degan Expressway, Trump Village, Seward Park, Peter Cooper Village and many more around the New York City area.

1960s to 1970s

• Citadel Management Co. Inc.’s clientele list grows beyond the public sector due to its successful track record within the public real estate development sector.

• Assignments come in from nonprofit organizations, churches, banks, synagogues, and private developers.

• Clients include, but were not limited to, Donald Trump, Sheldon Solow, Tishman Speyer, Helmsley Spear, and Harry Macklow.

• In 1974, current President, Stephen Shapiro joins Citadel Management Co. Inc. Upon joining the firm, Stephen expands the services offered to the management of loft buildings, co-ops, condominiums, office buildings, and apartment houses in New York City.

• As the company begins to focus on solving real estate and property problems for its clients, Stephen Shapiro buys Citadel Management Co. Inc, and closes Urban Relocation in 1979.


• Citadel Management Co. Inc. increases its services offered by brokering and financing buildings in New York City and New Jersey.
