MASSACHI IS A DYNAMIC REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT AND DEVELOPMENT FIRM FOCUSED ON AUGMENTING THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT THROUGH PROJECTS THAT PUSH THE BOUNDARIES OF DESIGN, INNOVATION AND INCLUSION.
There's been a paradigm shift in the world – nowadays, tenants want more. They are much more than simply tenants; they are influencers and change agents. The spaces they reside in can't be static, as daily routines are no longer routine. The lines between work, home and leisure are more blurred than ever. Spaces that work are multi-faceted and progressive, featuring programming tailored to time and occasion. Massachi embraces diverse and innovative housing typologies that foster a sense of community and inclusion for all socioeconomic backgrounds. Partnering with visionary architects, interior designers and artists, the firm works to create unique and refined residential, commercial and mixed-use developments.
Founded by Alex Massachi, the firm brings together a cohesive symmetry of ideas and perspectives that flows between investment and development. Massachi's real estate expertise includes sourcing deals through proprietary relationships, nuanced underwriting, detailed project planning & budgeting, obtaining complex and oftentimes discretionary land-use entitlements, design consultant (AEC) coordination during pre-construction, third-party general contractor administration and robust business plan execution. While Massachi’s focus is the sponsorship of development deals with institutional investors, the firm also engages in joint venture partnerships with alternative equity funds as well as high net worth family offices. Massachi makes equity placements in core-plus, value-add and opportunistic real estate deals, and provides fee-based development and/or consulting services to select clientele.
Massachi, alongside its institutional capital partners, is currently involved in a handful of urban, infill projects that collectively add over a million square feet of mixed-income housing to gateway markets.
