Portrait of Paul G. Wolf

Paul G. Wolf Co-Founder & President

Real estate development, consulting and brokerage for over 25 years

Paul is an established leader in the field of real estate, with more than 30 years of development, brokerage, and nonprofit consulting experience. Paul’s expertise is shaped by a breadth and depth of experience in New York City real estate and is proven by his strong record of realizing complex projects. Paul’s insights and creative approaches bolster the expertise of Denham Wolf’s diverse staff, bringing to bear a high level of technical excellence for every client.

As a principal of Denham Wolf, Paul has provided strategic guidance and technical expertise for a range of arts, cultural, community development, healthcare, social service, and educational organizations. He regularly advises nonprofits on major development projects, represents tenants in acquiring and divesting property, advises organizations on team assembly for major capital projects, helps nonprofits secure project financing through traditional and less conventional routes, and provides strategic planning guidance to help ensure that a nonprofit’s real estate is in service to its mission. Working collaboratively with nonprofits to articulate their real estate needs and organizational goals, Paul positively shapes each client’s strategic real estate decisions and grows their capacity to keep mission first.

Paul has spearheaded numerous projects that have shaped the cultural and civic fabric of New York City. For St. Luke in the Field, Paul supported the faith-based institution in evaluating their property’s potential, running a developer selection process, and negotiating a 99-year lease for a new development, which will provide program-sustaining cash flow. In working with Covenant House, Paul helped lead the selection of a developer to purchase part of the nonprofit’s real estate and develop a state-of-the-art shelter for Covenant House, which also catalyzed an additional 400,000 sf of new development. Paul also represented a foundation in the purchase of a 60,000 sf building in the East Village, the first step in a unique process that will preserve the building for community use.

Prior to co-founding Denham Wolf with Jon Denham in 1998, Paul served as Senior Vice President of Asset Management at the New York City Economic Development Corporation. Paul regularly presents and guest lectures at institutions such as Columbia University, Yale University, Brooklyn College, and Nonprofit New York.

Portrait of Jonathan Denham

Jonathan Denham Co-Founder


Jon is an industry leader in the field of real estate consulting, with more than 30 years of experience in planning, design, and construction in New York City. Guided by his complementary background in civil engineering and urban planning, Jon co-founded Denham Wolf with Paul Wolf to provide integrated real estate services to nonprofit organizations as a means towards sustainable and dynamic urban development. By supporting organizations that provide critical services and economic activity, Denham Wolf created a viable platform for real estate that contributes to the vitality of New York City.

Since co-founding Denham Wolf, Jon has successfully managed a multitude of urban development projects, bringing to bear a deep understanding of the human dynamics involved in every project. His work has included planning and feasibility studies, building and facility assessments, and the design and construction of a diverse range of building projects for educational, healthcare, and cultural organizations. Jon’s work is strengthened by his ability to work with complex development structures, extensive contacts with government and private development entities, and a strong track record with community groups and elected officials. Together, Jon’s experience and holistic vision of real estate planning allows him to effectively lead Denham Wolf’s highly-skilled staff, as well as diversified external teams.

In 2007, Denham Wolf expanded their business practice to include the re-development of the Banknote building, a 400,000 square foot adaptive re-use project that Jon and Paul envisioned as an economic engine and locus of community service in the South Bronx. Other key projects include the development of the Jerome Robbins Theater for the Baryshnikov Arts Center, a permanent home for Poets House in Battery Park City, a new headquarters facility for the Joseph P. Addabbo Family Health Center, and Scandinavia House, a multifunctional cultural center for the American-Scandinavian Foundation.

Before jointly founding Denham Wolf, Jon studied engineering at Princeton University. During this time, he developed an interest in architecture as well, which further drove his interest in the built environment. After college, he worked in consulting engineering, and went on to work at the New York City Economic Development Corporation, where his work in public-sector development and urban planning led him to pursue a Master’s degree at NYU’s Wagner School of Public Service. Continuing his work at the EDC, ultimately as Senior Vice President of Capital Program & Planning, he completed a number of major projects including alternative site assessments for Yankee Stadium and for Shea Stadium.
