Our story covers more than five decades and millions of square feet in building spaces.

historyAllen Morris has been in business since 1958 when founder L. Allen Morris opened shop for the purpose of brokerage and development of commercial and investment real estate. The early development projects were single-tenant office buildings, warehouses, and the first regional shopping center in 1962, which was the largest mortgage loan in the state of Florida at the time. His pioneering efforts earned him the distinction as one of the 100 most influential people in Miami history by the Miami Herald.

In 1980, W. Allen Morris, L. Allen Morris’ son, took over the helm as President and Chief Executive Officer.

The company’s remarkable growth since then, even through turbulent economic times, such as the real estate crash of the 1980’s, the stock market crash of 1987, and the national financial crisis of 2008, is testament to his leadership and vision.

Through all of these changing times, Allen Morris has consistently maintained a track record of integrity that the company jealously guards.

In 2002, the company moved into its new corporate headquarters in Coral Gables—

The stunning, iconic Alhambra Towers has won 9 awards – the capstone to date of W. Allen Morris’ commercial development achievements.

In 2013, he launched a multi-family residential division with projects in the works throughout Florida and the southeastern United States.

The legacy of W. Allen Morris is championing beautiful, award-winning and environmentally sensitive, sustainable buildings.

Among his many awards:

The 2011 REAL Trend Setter Award from the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce.
• The 2009 South Florida Business Leader of the Year Award in Real Estate
Hickock Award of the Young President’s Organization (YPO)
The Humanitarian Award of the American Jewish Committee (AJC)

The company’s enduring record of achievement and success is attributed overall to its unwavering commitment from the beginning to serve clients with integrity, responsiveness, professional expertise, and unsurpassed market knowledge mixed with street savvy for extraordinary consistent high returns and creative solutions.

In fiscal year 2013, total gross business volume was $320 Million.

Our History

Timeline

Our Team

A company is known by the people it keeps

The leadership team at Allen Morris must be happy because many of them have been in place for ten, 20, 30, 40 years or even longer! They also must be honest, ethical and hard working since that’s what the company demands. And because they’ve been at it for so long together, they’ve developed a unique corporate culture and long-term corporate memory of company values, creative problem solving, and a network of contacts and relationships spanning many decades and across many cities. And because they are not a team of rivals, but true colleagues who share information and help one another, our clients benefit – whether in the design of a new project, understanding a property, management, accounting, brokerage, valuation or a consulting requirement. Truly, we value our people as much as our projects.
