Alan Suna is an architect, real estate developer and Chairman of Silvercup Studios in Long Island City and the Bronx.  In 40 years in the industry, he and his brother, Stuart, have developed hundreds of thousands of square feet of commercial, mixed-use and studio space, as well as hundreds of residential units. 


In 1983, the Suna brothers launched a visionary redevelopment initiative that transformed the vacant Silvercup Bakery complex into NYC’s leading independent, full-service film/television production facility, which in turn, changed the perception and complexion of Long Island City. In 1999, they developed Silvercup Studios East in LIC. They have since expanded their studio business in the Bronx with the addition of Silvercup North in August 2016. On September 30, 2020, the Sunas sold their Silvercup Assets to a Joint Venture of Hackman/Square Mile which already were in the same business in Los Angeles and other venues around the world. Alan continues to work with his new partners to further the offerings of Silvercup Studios in New York City.


Alan received his professional degree in architecture from Cornell University and has also completed post graduate studies in architecture, business and real estate development at M.I.T., Harvard and Columbia Universities.
