Company History

Maurice M. Weill, our eponymous founder, launched Murray Construction in 1956.  An early pioneer of industrial real estate, Mr. Weill was consequential in developing the New Jersey’s industrial and greater commercial landscape, and then spanning to regional development in the Tri-State area and beyond. Murray Construction has developed over 25,000,000 square feet of commercial projects. We pride ourselves on a quality product and great attention to our partners and tenants.

In 2009, Douglas Friedrich was elevated to President and CEO, having been with Murray since 1988 serving in various senior executive positions.   Mr. Friedrich led the development of the Murray Corporate Center at Branchburg, and continues to direct our strategic vision, and oversees all assets of the company’s portfolio.

Following the guiding principles set by Mr. Weill, Murray Construction continues to be a leading force in the real estate marketplace.  We are a full-service development company driven by an in-house team of talented real estate professionals whose combined breadth of experience includes all areas of real estate development, design, construction, and project management. 

Murray Construction’s self-administered in-house Leasing Department provides prospective and renewing tenants with a streamlined process to deliver optimal space solutions and creative deal structuring.  Together with our development and construction capabilities, we are able to offer planning, design, approval, construction and buildout services. This enables us to provide a range of tenant support services, resulting in on-time and on-budget delivery.  Our fully integrated Property Management Team also delivers the highest level of personalized attention focused on ensuring tenant satisfaction. 

The firm’s portfolio includes nearly 5 million square feet of commercial space including office, retail, and industrial properties under ownership today, with available land for future development and an eye towards expansion in the future.
