Mr. Steiner formed Steiner + Associates in 1993 with a vision and passion for creating sustainable, pedestrian–friendly and highly performing mixed-use destinations. This vision was inspired and realized while Mr. Steiner was developing CocoWalk in Coconut Grove, Florida in 1990. It has evolved and matured with the delivery of more than 7.4 million square feet of mixed-use projects across the United States including the iconic 1.7 million square foot Easton Town Center in Columbus Ohio. Most recently, Steiner + Associates just finished its largest and most ambitious project to date, the $350 million Liberty Center.
Mr. Steiner’s civic, and financially disciplined model has inspired and transformed the industry, leading the way for a new generation of dynamic mixed-use environments that encourage interaction and exploration and infuse experiential elements into the retail equation. His vision and subsequent execution has earned him international recognition and has significantly challenged and expanded the traditional definitions of mixed-use design and development worldwide.
