About Us

Headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri, The Staenberg Group is led by industry leader Michael Staenberg, who over his career has developed, leased and managed a portfolio of more than 200 shopping centers comprising in excess of 45 million square feet of quality retail space, including over 2,000 restaurant and 2,000 retail transactions, across the United States. 

Our Driving Force

Our leadership team has more than 150 years of combined retail experience in the shopping center industry.   We have assembled a multi-disciplinary team of industry professionals with a history of success. We think like long term investors as we are long term owners of the shopping centers we develop.  We are privately held and have the institutional knowledge and ability to deliver on every aspect of a project or assignment. 

Beyond Development

We are an opportunistic, progressive, full-service shopping center owner who develops, leases and manages shopping centers throughout the United States.  We have a proven track record of developing thriving shopping centers which best serve our partners on every level.  We have the drive and the resources to deliver a full complement of services. Our expertise includes acquisitions, site selection, design, project management, construction, leasing, property management, investment, financial resources and partnership opportunities. 

We are very strategic and pride ourselves on building relationships with our tenants, partners and customers.   We recognize the need to be flexible, entrepreneurial and aggressive, both as individuals and as a company.  Customer satisfaction is critical to our success and we strive to exceed the expectations of our tenants, partners and customers (internally and externally) by anticipating, understanding and responding appropriately to their specific needs.

Keys to Success

Financial strength, private ownership and a world-class team allow The Staenberg Group to attract unique opportunities, and enable us to be decisive and deliver on schedule.  Our passion for action creates results and produces projects that consistently exceed expectations.


Michael and his family foundation have been generous, contributing $100 million to charities and worthy causes. But their commitment goes far deeper than just financial support. Michael also believes in giving his time and expertise to ensure successful outcomes. He helps raise money, coordinates pro bono services and offers cost-saving solutions that provide additional value estimated at more than $100 million.
