Dmitry Druzhinsky’s experience in real estate began in 2000, when he directed the development of his personal home. Since then, he has been a part of the construction and sale of more than one hundred properties. The co-founder of MatchPoint NYC, his gained comprehension of the acquisition and repositioning of property was instrumental to the finalization of the massive $20 million project. The stressful negotiation process with New York City’s Board of Standards and Appeals to be able to build on the valuable three-acre lot only finalized after the businessman worked hand in hand with the city to “de-map” a street that, although vacant for one hundred years, bisected one of the parcels where the facility was to sit.
