Pyramid Companies

The Pyramid Companies were formed in 1970 in Syracuse, New York by Robert J. Congel. Its first three malls, or the company's "pioneer malls", were Pyramid Mall Ithaca (The Shops at Ithaca Mall), Pyramid Mall Plattsburgh, and Pyramid Mall Saratoga. All three malls opened in 1975 and marked the beginning of an advance in shopping center construction and ownership. Currently, it is the largest privately owned developer of shopping malls in the country. The company has since grown to own 20 properties throughout New York and Massachusetts. However, of the three original Pyramid Malls, two have been demolished for strip centers, and the Ithaca property has since been sold.
