About Us

Boston’s Landmark Developer

With a history of turning opportunities into landmarks, The Abbey Group has become the standard bearer of developing urban properties in a way that brings vitality and value to the communities of Greater Boston. In 1979, Robert Epstein, David Epstein, and John Svenson came together with a vision of a real estate company that would demand excellence in every aspect of the business, from inception to completion. Since then, a consistent ability to identify target markets—and to create properties that meet the needs of those markets—has made The Abbey Group’s name synonymous with fiscal stability and high quality in residential, commercial and retail development. We pride ourselves on creating places that make people feel engaged with their surroundings, comfortable in their residences, and excited by their possibilities. Our team includes specialists in marketing, finance, architecture, construction, land planning, and property management to fulfill the needs of the rapidly changing marketplace. It is always our goal to act as considerate stewards of the environment and of the communities our properties serve. In addition to our commitment to supporting arts, education, and medical research, The Abbey Group is also a proud co-owner and managing partner of the Boston Celtics.
