Scott L. Leventhal

Scott L. Leventhal is the founder, President and Chief Executive Officer of Tivoli Properties, Inc., one of the nation’s premier real estate investment and development companies.  As a fourth generation developer, Mr. Leventhal has spent nearly two decades in the real estate development business and has created an impressive portfolio of mixed-use and multifamily housing projects in the Southeastern United States.  In April 2006, Mr. Leventhal was recognized as one of “Atlanta’s Most Promising Young Stars” by the editors of Atlanta Business Chronicle in their annual “Up and Comers – 40 under 40” feature.

Tivoli’s primary focus is on the development of high-rise condominiums, next-generation multifamily housing, moderately priced urban lofts, mixed-use developments and hotels throughout the United States with a primary focus on the Southeast.  Tivoli, through its affiliates, also develops luxury resort-style golf communities and provides third-party construction and development services and brokerage services.

Under his leadership, Tivoli has built innovative developments which have forever changed the Atlanta landscape for residential condominium living.  In just a few years, Tivoli’s has already created a portfolio with a retail value of nearly $500 million.  As a result of this rapid acceleration and growth, Tivoli earned recognition as 24th of the top 100 real estate development companies according to Real Estate Forum Magazine’s November 2007 issue.

Tivoli’s projects have set new standards which other developers seek to achieve.  Among Tivoli’s award winning and pioneering projects is Aqua Midtown, a $60 million high-rise condominium located in Midtown, Atlanta.  At the time of its debut, Aqua featured first-to-market design features and amenities, including Midtown’s first private elevator access building.  Multifamily Executive Magazine named Aqua the “2008 Residential High-Rise Project of the Year”.  Some other distinctive projects of Tivoli include Mezzo, a $65 million high-rise apartment building located in Atlanta’s Buckhead neighborhood; Duo, a $16 million loft-style condominium in Downtown Atlanta; and Tivoli Tenside, an $80 million mixed-use multifamily and retail project located in Midtown West, Atlanta.

In addition to the management of Tivoli Properties, Inc., Mr. Leventhal oversees the operation of Tivoli Communities, Inc.  In 2006, Tivoli Communities, Inc. (through a subsidiary) became the lead lender on a development located on the coast of Georgia and commonly known as Hampton Island Preserve.  Hampton Island Preserve is equidistant between Savannah and Sea Island, Georgia.  Over the last several years, Tivoli Communities, Inc. has taken over full control of the Hampton Island Preserve project and is repositioning it to become an exquisite resort-style private community.  During Tivoli Communities, Inc.’s control of the project, Tivoli completed construction of a Davis Love III signature golf course, equestrian facilities, an organic farm and various other outdoor pursuit amenities.  The estimated retail value of the project is over $250 million.

Mr. Leventhal appears frequently as a guest speaker and lecturer on matters involving the real estate development business.  In the spring of 2012, Mr. Leventhal appeared as a special, select witness before a United States Congressional Committee on the effect of bank failures in the real estate development industry, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation’s structured finance program that involves public-private partnerships.  Additionally, Mr. Leventhal guest lectures before Georgia State University’s Masters in Real Estate Development and Finance classes.

Lastly, Mr. Leventhal oversees the management and operation of Tivoli Realty Services, Inc., a real estate brokerage company that provides in-house and third-party real estate sales and marketing services.   Tivoli Realty Services, Inc. managed the sale, in part, of Tivoli’s Aqua, Duo and Hampton Island projects.
