The family of the late magnate Nathan Werdiger, who founded Juilliard, are selling down.

The Australian reported the anticipated move could see more than $1 billion worth of real estate put in play.

Juilliard Group invests in the Australian commercial property market, specialising in CBD office spaces.

The company owns and manages a number of Melbourne CBD and suburban office buildings, certain semi-industrial sites and a regional shopping centre.

Some of the Juilliard Group's buildings in Melbourne CBD include 440 Collins Street (above) 535 Bourke Street, 459 Collins Street, and 574 St Kilda Road

The Werdiger family's Juilliard Group is ranked as one of the largest private landlords in Melbourne.

Philippa Kelly is the chief operating officer at the Juilliard Group. The business has been run by Nathan's eldest son Shlomo since the early 2000s.

Nathan Werdiger, who died in 2015, established himself as one of Australia's most successful businessmen in textiles and later property. He died aged 93.

Polish-born, Mr Werdiger and his brother Nechemia, two of six children, were the only family members to survive the Auschwitz "selection" process run by infamous Nazi doctor Josef Mengele, the "Angel of Death".

In 1945 he was rescued, close to death, by the Allied forces from another notorious concentration camp, Buchenwald.

Werdiger recounted his times in Carolyn Ford's book Who Brought the Luck to the Lucky Country? 

Werdiger arrived in Melbourne in 1949, aged 23, as a humanitarian migrant, joining his maternal uncle's family.
