“We are pleased to be recognized as a rising force in the New York real estate market and look forward to bringing other exciting new projects to market,” Berger said.
Belew and Berger co-founded Fifth Square Partners (http://www.5thsq.com), formerly Northstar Property Group, in 2002 and together they have undertaken more than $150 million in development projects in New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, New Jersey and Connecticut.
The firm, known for producing outstanding design-oriented adaptive re-use and urban infill developments, has received several additional recent accolades, including the 2006 Home Building Industry (HOBI) Award for “Best Infill Community” in the state of Connecticut for their project Laurel Ridge and the 2006 Baltimore Heritage Preservation Project Award for Rombro Condominiums. This development was also named Maryland’s Top Residential Project of 2006 by “Square Feet,” an annual publication of the Daily Record.
Recent projects include 344 Bowery, a six-story pre-war residential building offering full-floor lofts, situated in Manhattan’s East Village/Noho neighborhood;
