I’m proud to say that we’ve done some of the most creative and ambitious mixed-income housing developments in the country. We always operate under the assumption that if you don’t do something special you won’t get invited back.

Mr. Witte, who joined Related in 1989, oversees all of our multi-family and mixed-use development activity in California. From 1988 to 1989, he was Deputy Mayor for Housing and Neighborhoods and acting Director of the Housing Authority, City of San Francisco. From 1983 to 1988, Mr. Witte was Director of the Mayor’s Office of Housing and Economic Development in San Francisco. Mr. Witte graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a Bachelor of Arts degree and a Master’s degree in City Planning.
