Mark Richard Schuster

The Book

Lofty Pursuits is a journey of success built the old fashioned way, through perseverance and hard work. Over the course of twenty-five years, Seattle real estate developer Mark Schuster went from scrubbing toilets to building a multi-million dollar real estate investment business and, in the course of doing so, pioneered and developed the most nationally acclaimed, environmentally conscious residential high-rise building of 2008 — Mosler Lofts.

Early in his career, Mark had vowed to erect an iconic building, a building worthy of honoring his grandfather, George Mosler. The completion of Mosler Lofts fulfilled that dream, and, in the end, much more. Mosler Lofts not only became a landmark expression of innovative design and green building practices but also the catalyst of expressing what Mark describes as the three pillars of sustainability. Lofty Pursuits is about honoring family legacy, designing and managing our businesses for future generations, and about making a positive impact on the social challenges facing humanity.


In a blend of personal stories and business lessons, Mark takes every reader on an exploration of the true meaning of sustainability, and how each of us in our own way, given enough determination, can help save our planet one building at a time. An inspiration of environmental stewardship, business savvy and meaningful memoir, Lofty Pursuits will change the way you approach your life, at home and at work, while inspiring you to take part in repairing the world.


Lofty Pursuits is Mark’s first book and is already receiving high accolades, including garnering the 2011 Eric Hoffer Book Award and the 2011 Reader Views Reviewers Choice Award. Published by Brown Books Publishing Group, the book is currently available through all major book retailers including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Borders.
