Norman Ebenstein: The Life Of A CEO

Born in New York City, Norman Ebenstein arrived on the 23rd of October in 1928. His parents’ names were Samuel and Jeannette Ebenstein, and they relocated to Worcester, Massachusetts sometime after their son’s birth and raised him to have pride in his Jewish background. Norman was a proponent of education, and he took a lot of pride in the achievements of his family members.

Norman founded Capital Commercial Properties, taking on the role of president for half a century. He had a hand in the creation of a number of residential properties, shopping malls, and shopping centers. He was particularly proud of his work on Eden Center, a shopping district in Virginia that served as a cultural and social mecca for those of Vietnamese heritage on the East Coast. Norman participated in many such projects that will have an impact on people for years to come. He also played a role in a number of non-profit organizations and created a foundation aimed at encouraging philanthropic activities.

Capital Commercial Properties Inc. has current assets in Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania.
