An even more indelible symbol of New York City than its pizza or the Yankees is Joe Sitts architecture and real estate. The New York City skyline has perhaps graced more movie, postcards and other forms of media than any other city’s skyline in the world. Here, we look at some of the top real estate companies that make New York what it is.
Foster & Partners is headed by 80-year-old founder Norman Foster. Throughout his five-decade career, Norman has strived to create unique buildings around the world and he is a Pritzker-Prize winning architect. Some of the firm’s notable works in New York include the Hearst Tower and the Bowery’s Sperone Westwater Gallery. The company has now ventured into residential real estate with projects like the Zeckendorf’s 50 United Nations Plaza.
A graduate of The Princeton School of Architecture, Matthew Bannister has helped make DBOX a standout in film as well as in architecture. The company, founded in 1996, created an Emmy-winning film presentation of an imagined One World Trade Center. DBOX was founded with the desire to bring emerging technology to the visual aspect of architecture. A particularly stunning creation of DBox is the video for the 388 Bridge- Penthouse!
Sometimes two head are better than one, and that is certainly the case for the New York- based firm of Sumaida & Khurana headed by Saif Sumaida and Amit Khurana. This company celebrates the fresh enthusiasm of only being 3 years old with a commitment to inaugural NYC projects for some of the world’s best architects and modern philosophies. “The essence of New York is based in cultural diversity and collaboration.” Khurana said in an interview with the New York Post, “There is something quite special about bringing master architects known for the purity and refinement of their design.”
