Toby Moskovits is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Heritage Equity Partners, a woman-owned real estate and development firm specializing in mixed-use development in the New York metro region.
The company’s fast-growing portfolio is comprised of unique, contextualized buildings in some of New York’s outer borough neighborhoods. In addition to the two-million square feet of commercial and residential properties the firm and its partners already completed, Heritage Equity Partners currently has a number of major projects in various stages of development: 25 Kent Avenue, an innovative light industrial and office development in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, targeting tech, creative, and maker tenants; a 190-unit residential rental development at 564 St. John’s Place in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn; a 100,000-square-foot light industrial and office project at 215 Moore Street in East Williamsburg, Brooklyn; and the Bushwick Hotel & Inn, a 150 room boutique hotel which is slated to be completed in the summer of 2019.
Other successful projects include: conversion of the old St. Vincent de Paul Church, rectory, and school in Manhattan into the Spire Lofts, a 100-unit residential rental building that preserves the original facade and ecclesiastical aesthetics; development of Grand Living, a five-story, 75,000-square-foot building in North Williamsburg, Brooklyn that is fully leased; conversion of the Quarry Building into a 40,000-sf, mixed-use property; and pre-development of 170-unit residential project at 41-21 28th Street in Long Island City, Queens.
Since 2009, Toby has been involved in the management of four residential buildings including over 120 units as well as 10,000 square feet of office space. In the coming months, upon completion of additional of her projects she will increase her portfolio of properties under management to include an additional approximately 200 residential units and an additional 80,000 square feet of office space.

From 1998-2002 Toby lived in Israel during which time she worked at Israel Seed Partners, a $250 million fund based in Jerusalem, in addition to holding operational and advisory roles in a number of early stage technology companies. During her tenure at Israel Seed Partners, the fund invested in Cyota (sold to RSA) and Dealtime (IPO: Shopping.com, subsequently sold to Ebay).
