Douglaston Development has distinguished itself as one of the largest and most active residential developers in New York City. The breadth of our completed developments include mixed-use projects, high-rise luxury rentals, condominiums, hospitality projects, student housing, senior communities, assisted living and independent living communities, skilled nursing facilities, office buildings and retail.
We are recognized leaders in the field of affordable housing which allows us to maximize the substantial zoning bonuses and tax benefits of recent re-zoning laws. Additionally, we believe that all New Yorkers should have access to quality housing.
Our seasoned and respected senior staff is known for successfully navigating a complex regulatory environment. In a market with substantial barrier to entry, we have developed expertise in the disciplines necessary to execute projects including site acquisition, zoning entitlements, tax benefit analysis, site planning, building design and development, debt and equity financing, marketing, sales, and leasing. We have also nurtured relationships with many government agencies, policy makers and not-for-profit institutions whose influence can substantially effect a project's success.
Our development team performs in-depth financial analysis to quickly evaluate potential transactions. We are able to leverage the surveying, estimating capabilities, and real-time data for the ongoing construction projects from our affiliate, Levine Builders.
Over the past 30+ years, we have fostered relationships with many lenders and equity partners who respect our successful track record and our ability to meet our schedules and budgets.
