Development & Design Associate

Aria Development Group is a leading real estate investment and development firm with a distinguished track record. Joshua Benaim founded Aria Development Group with partners David Arditi and Timothy Gordon in 2009 to pursue Mr. Benaim’s unique business philosophy, the marriage of value investment with the traditional real estate principles of location, scarcity and beauty. Aria has since been a leader in reimagining city center living and is currently developing more than 1,500 apartments in great neighborhoods across the United States. The firm has invested over $350 million of equity since inception and is currently investing through its discretionary fund, Aria Investment Partners LP. Aria maintains offices in New York, Miami and Washington, DC.

Aria is seeking to hire a Development Associate to work closely with Mr. Benaim and his partners on projects throughout the United States. The role will be based out of the firm’s New York City office. The employee will have a broad range of responsibilities including:
