The Empire State Building. Rockefeller Center. Chrysler Building. When you think of New York City, there are some commercial real estate developments that come to mind almost instantly. But we’d like to introduce you to some that may not be first in your mind. And they’re some really spectacular developments at that.
All of these have one thing in common, ok, two things: 1.) they’re all here in New York and 2.) they were all developed by Forest City Ratner Companies.
One of the foremost developers, owners and operators of distinctive urban real estate in the New York metropolitan area, Forest City Ratner Companies commits to projects that enhance local communities and encourage economic development. Based in Brooklyn, Forest City Ratner Companies is a full-service, vertically integrated real estate company with expertise in all facets of development, ownership and management.
At Forest City, they are also committed to the principle and practice of sustainability.
They believe in adaptive reuse and historic preservation that makes use of existing infrastructure and buildings. Which is great because it breathes new life into usable structures while saving raw materials, conserving open space and reducing carbon emissions.
Over the past few years, ZUM has had the pleasure of working with Forest City Ratner on a few of their developments. So when we got a letter from Andrew Miller, Vice President at Forest City Ratner the other day, we were elated.
“I’ve worked closely with ZUM for years and consider them a great development partner. The renderings and animations their team creates have been an integral part of our sales and marketing strategies. But Zum also uses 3D modeling as an active design tool, identifying problems that might not be apparent in 2D plans and then proposing creative solutions. They help us streamline our development process, avoid construction changes and improve the final product.” – Andrew Miller, Forest City Ratner Company.
Wow. Thank you. That means a lot. We look forward to the next opportunity to work with you.
