Alan Suna is an architect, real estate developer and co-owner of both Silvercup Studios and Silvercup Properties LLC in Long Island City. In more than 36 years in the industry, he and his brother, Stuart, have developed hundreds of thousands of square feet of commercial, mixed-use and studio space, as well as hundreds of residential units. In 1983, the Suna brothers launched a visionary redevelopment initiative that transformed the vacant Silvercup Bakery complex into NYC’s leading independent, full-service film/television production facility, which in turn, changed the perception and complexion of Long Island City. In 1999, they developed Silvercup Studios East in LIC. They have now expanded their studio business with the addition of Silvercup North, in the Bronx this summer. They currently have another 27-story condo tower in Long Island City under construction. Alan Suna has been Chairman of the Queens Museum of Art, continues now as an active board member, and was a leader of its successful $73 million capital campaign to expand to twice its former size. Alan received his professional degree in architecture degree from Cornell University in 1976 and has also completed post graduate studies in architecture, business and real estate development at M.I.T., Harvard and Columbia Universities.
