The Robert Martin Company is known as a pioneer in the development of executive office parks. Throughout the 1970s, the Company constructed four executive parks totaling over 5 million square feet in Westchester County, New York, as well as condominiums, apartments, and shopping centers. In addition, it played a significant role in urban renewal development in Greenburgh, Tarrytown, and downtown White Plains, and constructed over one million square feet of office buildings in White Plains.
In 1986, Robert Martin completed the development of Westchester Financial Center, an 800,000-square-foot, landmark complex which includes two office buildings and a 124-unit residential building. With an art gallery at the center, the Robert Martin Company became well known for its support of the arts in Westchester County and the Beautification Committee of White Plains.
