Arthur Becker has a Tribeca real estate office that acts as a studio with full-fledged workshop along with paintings and sculptures he created. The office is located near the site which will be the first ground-up he develops alone. The project is estimated to sell for $52.5 million and will be located at 465 Washington Street. Arthur Becker is 66 years old; he is a former Bear Stearns stockbroker who accumulated his wealth from buying tech companies in the early 2000s. He recently made his entrance in real estate in Florida and New York. Arthur has been a silent money partner who has been seen to back up Michael Stern and Kevin Maloney’s billionaire’s row development at West 57th Street. He invested in a 16 story condo building in Sullivan Street which was developed by Maloney and Robert Gladstone’s Madison equities. The developers transferred three nearby Sullivan Street townhouses to Becker in exchange for a stake in the project. Becker’s business dealings are massive spanning finance, technology art, and real estate. As Arthur Becker stated, he is more concentrated in real estate; he is lucky he got into the market at the right time. His many businesses have produced several failures one of them being an attempt to market a specialized binocular dubbed Bnox. According to Becker, the reason the binocular did not sell is because people did not like fiddling with the focus.
Becker is also known for collecting ancient currencies from African countries such as Cameroon and Nigeria. Two of his largest reproductions will be installed in a capital properties commercial building in Boston. In Becker’s art, there is always money, be it in the form of dollars or euros. In his office, there is a sculpture of crumpled cash and gold bars. Check out Bloomberg to know more.
