Stuart I. Meyers
CHAIRMAN & CEO
With a distinguished career spanning more than 50 years, Stuart Meyers has created a legacy of excellence. He has earned a reputation as one of the nation’s most influential real estate developers having had a very broad and material impact on both the Florida and West Texas real estate markets. Among his many honors, in 2003 the National Association of Homebuilders and Multifamily Executive Magazine both named him Builder of the Year. He was recently nominated for “EL Pasoan of the Year 2016” by the El Paso Inc. weekly business news publication.
Mr. Meyers has founded three separate real estate businesses during his long career including The Related Companies Florida Low Income Tax Credit Housing Development Group in the 1980’s, The Cornerstone Group in the 1990’s, and The Meyers Group in 2015. His real estate experience includes developing or renovating hi-rise condominiums, townhomes, market rate and affordable rental apartments, commercial applications and hotels. He has planned, directed, and implemented the successful combination of Federal Low Income Housing Tax Credits and the Florida State Apartment Incentive Loan program. Together these two programs have been jointly used to finance and complete Mr. Meyers’ development at both Related and Cornerstone of over 20,000 rental units in 70 different communities. As a result, he has been responsible for securing more than $1 Billion in debt and equity financing to support those projects.
Cornerstone Group is one of the nation’s largest fully integrated residential real estate firms providing development, construction and property management services for condominiums and both market rate and affordable rental housing communities throughout the State of Florida. In 2004 Cornerstone was recognized as the eighth largest multi-family developer in the United States. In its short existence since 2015 Meyers Group has already grown to become a leader in historic hotel renovations, condominium developments, market rate luxury rental properties and mixed use projects. It currently has eight ground-up developments or redevelopments underway on both coasts of Florida and in El Paso, Texas.
Mr. Meyers is a native of Port Chester, New York and currently resides in Coral Gables, Florida. He holds a BS in Economics from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, an MBA from Columbia University Graduate School of Business and a CPA Certificate from New York State.
