Lambert was in his 80s.Lambert majored in art at Brown University but gave up ambitions of being a sculptor because he felt he didn’t have the talent to make a living as an artist, according to a 1980 profile by UPI.Because he had no business training, he found work selling fabrics in Manhattan’s Garment District before landing a job at a mortgage firm.In 1967, he founded Eastdil with the idea of bringing an investment banking approach to real estate brokerage.His own list of deals includes financing of the Embarcadero Center mixed-use complex in San Francisco in the early 1970s. He sold the Irvine Ranch in 1977 for $337 million — then a record price for a land sale in the United States. Lambert sold the MacArthur Foundation apartment portfolio in the mid-1980s and the Helmsley Portfolio in the 1990s.Eastdil entered into a venture with Nomura Securities in the 1980s and from 1999 to 2019 the company operated as a subsidiary of Wells Fargo. Lambert and his management team led a buyout of the company in 2019 in a venture with Guggenheim and Temasek.Contact Rich Bockmann Tagseastdil secured Email Address* Message* Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlinklast_img read more
