Meet Honest Buildings

Our Mission

Our mission is to accelerate urban progress by empowering collaborative, data-driven decision making, project by project, building by building, city by city.

Honest Buildings is more than an intuitive, cloud-based technology - it's a paperless system of record built specifically for, and in partnership with, today's most innovative real estate owners, project managers and operators.

Through Honest Buildings, industry leaders like Beacon Capital Partners, SL Green, Rudin Management Company, Invesco and The Milstein Companies are transforming the way they do procurement and project management. Using our product to automate new construction and building improvement processes, these companies are unlocking value in data that previously sat unrealized in endless, complicated spreadsheets. Built for real-time insights and designed for any user, Honest Buildings has emerged as the standard for managing existing and developing portfolios across the country, including office, retail, industrial, hospitality and multifamily.
