Skylight is a placemaking and venue development firm for the most distinctive and storied real estate. From forgotten transportation hubs to Manhattan penthouses to downsized manufacturing plants, we see what once was and what might be.
Drawing a site’s history and possibility together into a singular vision, we strategically unite property owners, creators, neighbors, and city and community leaders under shared goals.
As urban archeologists, we bike and walk down grand avenues, through industrial parks, and along abandoned waterways to the corners of our built environment where good bones lay buried. Then we bring them to life with the imaginations of innovators, brand storytellers, and filmmakers. In the process, we cultivate places for human connection.
Founded and built by lovers of history, literature and art, Skylight has been transforming challenge into value since 2008. Countless partners—from mom-and-pop landlords to the world’s largest developers—and a dozen cities later, we continue to create environments to meet the needs of a new generation of collaborators.
