Joshua Guttman is a controversial property owner who owns dozens of commercial and residential buildings throughout New York City.[1]

Since 1990, at least five of his buildings have burned down due to arson, although Guttman himself was never charged.[2][3][4] Guttman has been involved in a series of lawsuits with some of his former tenants, who have accused him of making his residences uninhabitable in order to force them out.[5]

His son, Jack Guttman, helps to manage his properties through their company, Pearl Realty Management.[6][7] Joshua Guttman also owns and operates Greendesk, a co-working and office rental company, which was originally started by Adam Neumann, former CEO and founder of WeWork. Guttman bought Greendesk from Neumann in 2009.[8][9]
