NEW YORK CITY—Visionary developer Robert Weinberg, who helped develop Westchester County’s commercial office and flex industrial markets from the 1960s through the 1980s, passed away at his home in Manhattan at the age of 90 on Sept. 3.

Weinberg will be best remembered for co-founding Robert Martin Company of Elmsford with partner Martin Berger, who died in 2011. The firm, which began as a residential development firm in 1957, entered the commercial real estate development field in the late 1960s. From then and through the 1980s the company’s investment and development talent helped shape the commercial real estate markets in Westchester County as one of the big three pioneer commercial development firms at the time along with Schulman Realty Group and Halpern Enterprises.
