Building stronger communities, one resident at a time
Innovative, resident-focused development and property management
At Blue Onyx, we work hand-in-hand with community stakeholders to develop and manage multifamily and mixed-use properties that enhance quality of life. We invest in not only our buildings, but also our residents, allowing us to create meaningful, long-term value in underserved communities across the New York metropolitan area.
Doing the Right Thing
We believe that doing the right thing for our residents, employees, and neighbors drives thoughtful development decisions that ultimately help improve communities and create sustainable, long-term value. This principle also guides how we operate and conduct business with our investors and partners.
We believe in fostering curiosity and asking the hard questions to uncover new possibilities and opportunities. We are always searching for innovative ideas, technologies, and design methods capable of reimagining how connected communities are built.
We believe in encouraging an entrepreneurial spirit and celebrating success at every level through a collaborative, inclusive culture based on shared values, mutual respect, and trust. Our team of thinkers, makers, and doers focus on impact and innovation to create vibrant and equitable communities.
Owning Our Destiny
We believe that everyone in our organization wants to make a positive impact, and we seek out partners that address the long-term needs of communities with humanity and respect. Our unified goal is to deliver projects that are catalysts for change improving the quality of life for entire communities.
