History

Founded as Related Housing Companies in 1972 by Stephen M. Ross, the company began by developing government assisted housing developments. By the end of the decade more than 50 developments had been completed, worth over $250 million [cite web |url=http://www.related.com/index.asp?model=relatedHistory&view=1&slideid=1 |title=Related History |publisher=The Related Companies |accessdate=2008-06-03] . During the 1980s offices were opened in New York City, Miami, Chicago and California, and the company name was changed to Related due to the growth and expanded services that the company provided [cite web |url=http://www.related.com/index.asp?model=relatedHistory&view=1&slideid=2 |title=Related History part 2 |publisher=The Related Companies |accessdate=2008-06-03] .

In the 1990s the company was re-organized into three divisions - Development, Management and Financial Services [cite web |url=http://www.related.com/index.asp?model=relatedHistory&view=1&slideid=3 |title=Related History part 3 |publisher=The Related Companies |accessdate=2008-06-03] .
