A third-generation developer, Will Zeckondorf’s record of success in the real estate market in New York City is unmatched.


As the co-owner, founder, and co chairman of Zeckendorf Development, LLC, as well as the co-chairman of Brown Harris Stevens, Will has successfully managed and overseen over 300 buildings in New York City, including 520 Park Avenue and 15 Central Park West — referred to as the “limestone Jesus,” given its record for the highest price per square foot for a condo resale ever.
