Time will tell if the Bronx will be the next Brooklyn, but (for now) the borough is ripe for development and real estate investment opportunities of all shapes and sizes. That's why we at D&S have formed a geographically focused practice group — uniting expertise in real estate, land use, environmental and non-for-profit — to know what exactly is happening in the Bronx so our clients can take advantage of opportunities, armed with the insight, intelligence and expertise necessary to succeed.
Practice Group Leaders:
Michael Kupin (Real Estate)
Robin A. Kramer (Land Use)
J. Andrew Stephenson (Environmental)
Our Bronx Practice Group provides a multi-disciplinary approach to understanding what really is happening (now and in the future) in the real estate market in the Bronx. With the ongoing Jerome Avenue rezoning, targeted neighborhood programs for Mandatory Inclusionary Housing, recent studies showing a concentration of City-owned vacant land throughout the borough, and recent equity investment/developer activity, the Bronx will be a major focus of increased investment and City-wide resources in the coming months and years. We at D&S are leveraging our expertise of New York City real estate and our expanding network of relationships with Bronx-focused real estate players to help our clients take advantage of these new opportunities.
The primary goal of our Bronx Practice Group is to provide clients with the right intelligence on potential opportunities and the right contacts to make smart deals happen. The expertise of our focused practice Group includes:
Real Estate: Joint-ventures, acquisitions and dispositions, financing and leasing.
Land Use: Development possibilities, air rights, ULURP, and discretionary and non-discretionary zoning approvals, including special permits, certifications and amendments to the Zoning Resolution from the New York City Planning Commission.
Environmental: Brownfields (state and city), Brownfield Opportunity Areas, (e) Designations, site investigation/remediation and above ground and underground storage tanks.
Not-for-Profit: State Attorney General approvals for transactions involving tax-exempt-entity owned properties.
The Bronx Practice Group embodies the Firm’s Pure Play approach and is dedicated to helping our clients grow their businesses and succeed.
