SB Development (SBD) is a premier real estate developer that has constructed over 20 assets in the NY metropolitan area with a particular expertise in ground-up residential construction. SBD’s success over the past decade is due to employing a unique method of design-build by applying our construction experience, hands-on approach and strict adherence to schedule within the initial design phase through closeout. SBD focuses on designing and coordinating a project that makes sense from a builder’s and end-user’s perspective.

SB Development has over half million square-feet under construction and in predevelopment, ranging from intricate townhomes to high-rise towers. SBD was founded by real estate developers Roni Benjamini and Joseph Stern whose backgrounds combine engineering, construction, development, acquisitions and finance. SBD brings a wealth of experience in developing mixed-use and mixed income projects throughout the boroughs and greater NY metropolitan area.
The company was formed in 2010 and grew to a full-service development company over the last decade. Having constructed over two million square feet of commercial, alternate-use and residential properties to luxury residential, SB understands both the complexities of new construction as well as the need to live by a responsive decision-making process. 1 Oak Contracting is the GC arm of SB and is the foundation of SB’s «hands-on» project management approach through the creation of a collaborative atmosphere with the development team by focusing all efforts on common goals. SB Development + 1 Oak will schedule, oversee and coordinate the project from inception through close-out. At the heart of SB operations is the project schedule. In large part, our success has come from an approach to finishing projects on time, on budget and with the highest level of attention to detail.
