About Company

GLENWOOD IS DISTINGUISHED INDUSTRY-WIDE FOR HAVING CONSISTENTLY BROKEN NEW GROUND AS A PIONEER IN THE HIGH-END LUXURY APARTMENT RENTAL BUSINESS. The company was an early innovator in offering renters upscale amenities and finishes that are usually reserved for top tier Manhattan condos and co-op buildings. Glenwood was founded by father and son, Harry and Leonard Litwin. Harry and Leonard began their careers in the landscaping business, founding Woodbourne Cultural Nurseries in Melville, L.I., which still operates today. In the 1950s, they began building wood framed multi-family housing in Long Island and Queens, NY. Glenwood, incorporated in 1961, developed its first largescale project, Briar Hill, in Riverdale, NY. This development combined a suburban setting with a luxurious building that includes amenities such as an Olympic-size outdoor pool, snack bar, tennis courts, and playground. In 1962, Glenwood expanded its footprint to Manhattan with the development of the Pavilion. This building, comprised of over 800 apartments, spanned an entire city block with novel amenities including a grocery store, hair salon, shoe repair, as well as a maid and butler service and a private bus to local shopping and the Lexington Avenue subway station. Harry Litwin passed away during the construction of this project, and his son Leonard completed it. The grandeur of the Pavilion earned Leonard Litwin the key to New York City, awarded to him by Mayor John Lindsay. Following the success of the Pavilion, Glenwood expanded its portfolio of luxury rental buildings over the next four decades into Midtown, the West Side, and Downtown Manhattan. Glenwood was also first developer to build Downtown following 9/11 with 10 Liberty Street, highlighting Glenwood’s belief in New York City. This building, Liberty Plaza, was recognized by the National Registrar of Historical Places, which acknowledges the importance of specific properties to the history of our country.
