Jason Muss, President, Muss Development

Muss Development has named Jason Muss its new president. Over the last five years, Muss has refocused the firm’s efforts, spearheading an initiative to reposition the firm’s major generational assets. The firm continues to own many of the assets it has developed and is an active investor.

In Brooklyn, Muss initiated 1 Brooklyn Bay, a new development high-rise residential project that will be built in a joint venture with Avalon Bay. Muss also oversaw the final tower at the company’s Oceana Condominium & Club, a 927-unit condo development in Brighton Beach.

Additionally, under Muss’s leadership, the company’s entire retail portfolio is fully leased and stable. He has led the firm’s acquisition program, acquiring 10 different properties in the past few years, most recently with the company’s first foray into California—the purchase of a property adjacent to a grocery-anchored shopping center in Thousand Oaks, Calif., a community in the Los Angeles area.

Muss has been with the firm since graduating New York University School of Law in 1996. The family firm dates back more than 100 years and has developed more than 15 million square feet of office, residential, retail, industrial and hotel assets.
