D&A’s principals bring 40 years of experience in real estate acquisitions, underwriting, architecture, construction, marketing, and sales. We are driven to leave a legacy of beautiful, well-designed, quality buildings while building strong partnerships along the way. This is our advantage and is at the core of how we create value for our clients and shareholders.
The following services are offered on a fee-for-service basis or as part of a joint venture partnership.
Real Estate Development
D&A is a real estate development firm founded in 2018. Our team has collectively managed over 1,000,000 square feet of ground-up construction and adaptive reuse of buildings valued at over $1 billion. These include residential, hospitality and mixed-use buildings, including 7 major projects in New York City.
We actively pursue our own development opportunities and welcome partnerships with owners and developers seeking to add value to new or existing assets.
Real estate assets are durable, built to last 100 years. However, they require and deserve periodic analysis to ensure they are reaching their highest and best use. This is especially true in our current era of disruption. Shifts in populations and preferences, catalyzed by the Covid-19 pandemic, are changing the way we use space at a tectonic scale. D&A is uniquely suited to reimagine properties experiencing disruptions and offer strategies and designs to preserve or enhance valuation.
As our client you can expect a feasibility study including financial underwriting, an estimate of costs and returns paired with a visual presentation of the reimagined property.
D&A will identify outlier properties within your existing portfolio which stand to earn remarkable gains with the right changes, or stand to lose value without them. Once identified we will propose one or several concepts to repurpose or reposition your property.
After understanding your goals and limitations, we will perform a targeted analysis to uncover your property’s best and highest use, and present you with the information necessary to move forward with a repositioning or sale of your property.
We welcome the opportunity to bring value to new projects. We will work with your team to understand the applicable regulations and constraints to deliver a solution that balances form and function.
Architecture is central to all services we offer. Our expertise in architecture and construction contributes greatly to the value of the projects we undertake for ourselves and for our clients. Our experience as project managers grounds our design to the realities of time, budget, constructibility and serviceability. The interplay of these disciplines is fundamental to our ability to deliver projects that are both successful and timeless.
We offer commercial and residential brokerage services in New York State. We have experience in a variety of real estate transactions, including residential sales, commercial brokerage and leasing.
