Schuman and Carlos to be Honored by Jewish Theological Seminary

University Tributes Commercial Real Estate Advisors for Role in Creating New 21st Century Campus

Savills Studley, the leading commercial real estate advisory firm specializing in tenant representation, announces that The Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS) will celebrate Ira Schuman and David Carlos, co-heads of Savills Studley’s not-for-profit practice, for their work in creating JTS’s new 21st century campus at the university’s 2018 Louis Marshall Award Dinner on May 23, 2018.


Schuman and Carlos’s team represents many of the most prestigious universities, museums, hospitals, foundations, and social and community service organizations in New York City. Over a three-year period, Schuman and Carlos conceived the complex plan and structured transactions resulting in the new facilities currently being constructed to transform the JTS campus, including a new library, dormitory and conference center. The creativity and tenacity Ira and David applied to the project earned them the Real Estate Board of New York’s highest honor commonly known as the “Most Ingenious Deal of the Year” for the third time. The duo previously received the award for their work with Congregation Habonim, and Schuman again for the work of he and Daniel Horowitz with the City University of New York.


The dinner will also honor Tod Williams and Billie Tsien of Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects | Partners for their design of the new campus. The event will be held at the Mandarin Oriental New York at 6:30pm. For more information or to register, visit
