New York – May 20, 2010 - The Charles B. Benenson Grove was unveiled in a ceremony at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts on Thursday, May 20, 2010. This major gift was donated by Charles B. Benenson’s three sons, Bruce W. Benenson, Frederick C. Benenson and Lawrence B. Benenson in memory of their father, a highly regarded real estate industry leader with a strong commitment to philanthropy and a devoted patron of Lincoln Center.

Charles B. Benenson was the second generation of leadership at Benenson Capital Partners, building a portfolio of land and properties around the United States that totals more than 12.5 million square feet. He provided leadership in New York City’s real estate and business community, as well as in philanthropic endeavors in the City, nationally and internationally until his death in 2004.

The Charles B. Benenson Grove, one of Lincoln Center’s redevelopment projects to renovate the 16-acre urban campus, anchors the new Lincoln Center Promenade on Columbus Avenue.

The 3,500-square-foot urban grove, adjacent to the David H. Koch Theater at 62nd Street and Columbus Avenue, features approximately 35 quaking aspen trees. The innovative and dynamic design creates an inviting entrance at the southeast portion of the campus, which include benches for the public’s enjoyment.

In a joint statement, Charles B. Benenson’s three sons Bruce W. Benenson, Frederick C. Benenson and Lawrence B. Benenson said, “Our father was passionate about the arts and Lincoln Center in particular. The urban grove project is a truly fitting and lasting tribute to the man who gave to New York City in so many ways throughout his life. It is a gift to the community, and on a personal note, it is a gift in honor of our father from his loving children who want him remembered in a place he treasured.”

Lincoln Center president Reynold Levy said, “We are delighted for the generous gift from Charlie Benenson’s three sons, as a living tribute to their father that honors his tradition of philanthropy and his love of the arts and this institution. The Charles B. Benenson Grove is an oasis within the oasis of art and music and dance that Lincoln Center provides for the City and visitors from around the world.”

About The Benenson Family and Benenson Capital Partners

The Benenson family's real estate business, Benenson Capital Partners, was founded by Benjamin Benenson in 1905 and grew into an industry leader under his guidance, until his death in 1938. The founder's son, Charles B. Benenson, began his career in 1933. Beginning a career during the severest economic downturn, his tenacity and skills proved to be a dynamic combination. For more than seven decades the company prospered under his guidance until his death in 2004, participating in the economic growth of the United States by expanding its real estate portfolio and maintaining a keen contrarian eye for long-term values. The company is one of the few private companies in the real estate industry built on a tradition that spans over 100 years. Today's new generation of leadership includes Bruce W. Benenson, Frederick C. Benenson and Lawrence B. Benenson, the founder's grandsons, who, like their father, remain committed to philanthropic support of many of the city’s major institutions. Company executives Richard A. Kessler, James E. Stifel and Lloyd D. Stabiner provide a level of continuity and expertise that is unmatched in the real estate investment community.
