The Trenches of Staten Island

URBY Staten IslandIt all starts in the trenches.  That’s where the dream begins, ideas are birthed, and plans are set in motion. What a proud day it is when $133M refinances are being funded in our backyard on projects we played such a critical role in.  


Today I read with great pride, the article in the Commercial Observer, about the refinance of URBY.  I remember David Barry, from IronState Development, coming to Staten Island to look at multiple sites.  We brokered for NYCEDC for the property that is now URBY. Having been a part of so many transformative deals such as URBY, Empire Outlets, The Accolades, The Pointe, and The View our focus has been on the reshaping of the commercial real estate landscape on the North Shore of Staten Island. 


The second phase of URBY is set to begin sometime this year and continues to provide the ultimate in Staten Island Residential living with one of New York City’s largest urban farms along with an onsite gym, outdoor pool, café, and many other amenities.  


It truly is a great honor to have been a part of so many extraordinary projects that are changing the way we see Staten Island Real Estate.
