About BCN Development Owner Craig Nassi

Here's a little background about BCN Owner Craig Nassi

After graduating from CSU, Colorado, Craig Nassi went on to fulfill his lifelong dream to teach and coach youth in the public schools. He pursued his educational career for four years, while getting his Masters from UNC, Colorado. After departing from teaching he set out to challenge himself in the fast paced world of commercial real estate. Immediately leaving the classroom in 1994, he entered another one, but this time as a student. He enrolled in real estate college to gain the needed credentials for the real estate world. He achieved his real estate license and began working with a local agency. His duties were buying, selling, financing and repositioning assets.

It was a dramatic change from his previous career, but with his passion for architecture and construction Mr. Nassi caught on quickly. He immediately mastered the business and ventured into the field and began constructing single family homes. He completed a handful of homes in his first year in business, then entered into the grand world of multi-family dwellings and the commercial developments.

Quickly building and attracting a brilliant team of experienced individuals, Mr. Nassi's created BCN Development. With this ambitious group of seasoned professionals BCN set their goals on filling the void for luxury high rise living in downtown of Denver. The rest is history, by 2001-2002 he was voted by his peers as "Ernest and Young, Best Developer" for his first completed high rise, The Belvedere Tower. This asset also won the prize for development of the year.

Since then Mr. Nassi has expanded to both the east and west coasts to develop and acquire prize properties.

Today, the headquarters for BCN Development is located in New York City, Craig's home town and birth place. Here you will find him daily, working hands-on with his team to create their future developments and award winning unique structures.

Currently, Craig Nassi is also a part time professor at NYU Graduate School of Real Estate, and serves on several philanthropic boards, such as the Jewish National Fund. In his spare time Mr. Nassi is an avid runner, competitor in multiple marathons and triathlons a year, as well as enjoys skiing, spinning and yoga.
