Bell Tower Management, LLC
Gary Sidell has worked in Lawrence since 1993, after joining his father’s apparel company, KGR, Inc. After a 25-year run, the family decided to close that chapter in 2001 and were left with several vacant properties that were previously used for the family business. In a short period, that became the impetus to form his company, Bell Tower Management, a Lawrence-based real estate development and management firm. His business is focused on restoring historic, under-utilized buildings and repositioning them as thriving commercial properties, including medical, office and retail uses. An MBA from Babson College, he currently manages close to 500,000 square feet of mill space in the Merrimack Valley. At the same time, he consistently gives back to his community, from being a Big Brother, to mentoring entrepreneurs through E for All and E Para Todos, and sitting on several non-profit boards, including the Lawrence Partnership, Acting Out Theater Company and Family Services of the Merrimack Valley as their incoming Board President.
