  • Conversion & Development

Over the past 30 years, under the direction and leadership of Chairman David I. Berley, the firm has converted more than 30 properties, almost all of them pre-war buildings in vibrant Manhattan neighborhoods. We expertly address the challenges inherent in conversions – the appropriate scale of renovations, zoning changes, market repositioning, and negotiations with existing residential tenants. The result is a track record of conversions that have returned historic properties to their original beauty, generated value from previously underperforming properties, and created more vibrant neighborhoods.
