In addition to his decades of experience in real estate development, finance, and management, Brad Zackson joins Dynamic Star, LLC. Zackson, known for his innovative real estate development approach and “out-of-the-box” thinking, can identify market opportunities and anticipate future trends in real estate development. With a total of $5 billion in total value realized from Brad Zackson development projects since 1992, Zackson has helped realize over 5 million square feet of development space.
A manager and supervisor of over 45,000 units in the New York area, Zackson began his career in the late eighties and early nineties. He founded Dynamic Realty during this time to specialize in converting and reselling cooperatives and condominiums. In the New York metropolitan area, Brad Zackson converted more than 5,000 apartments into co-ops and condominiums during the next several years.
His expertise is now brought to Dynamic Star, a Greenwich, CT-based real estate development, investment, and marketing firm. His career includes steering complex real estate projects through the various stages of the development process: analyzing complex land use, zoning and underwriting requirements, analyzing investments, purchasing, developing, managing, and operating properties, and marketing and sales.
There is a history of collaboration between Zackson and local governments and communities. Developed in collaboration with the city’s Mayor, Housing Secretary, and Inter-Development Bank, Zackson developed The Singapore Project in Sao Paulo, Brazil, which included 17,000 units for low-income families. To develop 1.1 million square feet of residential, retail, commercial, and park space in Biscayne Shores Village in Miami, Florida, Zackson worked closely with city officials and community leaders.
In recent years, Zackson has been instrumental in acquiring and combining three important Long Island City properties. A 1 million square foot development site was developed by merging two adjacent properties with different owners, obtaining air rights from the MTA expedited, and merging two adjacent properties owned by different owners to create a critical pre-construction development aspect for the “Clock Tower Building.”
