The driving force behind our landscape’s dynamic and continuous visual evolution.

It takes a special breed not only to envision the tower on the vacant lot, but also to summon the will, skill and patience to navigate a sea of personalities, decisions, requirements and measurements over a period of often years and bring a project to completion. The developers at Blue Zees have a proven track record of success that is written all over the New York City skyline and beyond.

138-142 Reade Street, New York, NY

Challenges
Blue Zees principal purchases two adjacent structures and seeks construction of a new luxury residential condominium building with a ground floor commercial unit and residential garage.

Solutions
After feasibility analysis, Blue Zees facilitates sale of portion of air rights to a neighbor wishing to protect the view and develops a design with BKSK Architects that makes use of the existing footprint in order to maximize buildable square footage and create essentially a ‘corner’ structure midblock. The result is an exceptionally high-end, fully-sold building with four floor-through apartments and an owner-occupied triplex penthouse. Blue Zees also oversees the design/building of the retail first floor for a specific user and serves as the ongoing property manager of the building.

123 Third Avenue, New York, NY

Challenges
The development potential of this three-lot site on the corner of 14th Street and Third Avenue is not clear; the project scope and complexity suggest a benefit in finding a builder/partner a change in the commercial lender’s collateral requirement generates a gap between the first mortgage and the equity.

Solutions
After a thorough acquisition and feasibility analysis by Blue Zees, the purchase of additional air rights enables the design of a glass-fronted eighteen story residential building with a ground floor retail condominium. Blue Zees also initiates partnership negotiations between the owner and Top 8 Construction to create a joint venture. Blue Zees provides a mezzanine loan of $8.6 million and becomes a full participant in the development decision-making process.
