Unearthing the Past to Create New York’s Buildings of Tomorrow

As director of marketing and communications for JDS Development Group, architectural historian Marci Clark has made an enthusiastic case for projects from which other real estate developers might shy away, including the revitalization of some of New York’s most important 20th-century buildings. “I think real estate in many ways is the story of New York, how the city grows and changes,” she says. Her tenacity has helped propel the successful diversification of JDS Development’s portfolio, from maintaining the Art Deco character of Midtown’s Stella Tower during its luxury condo conversion to the vintage-inspired design of the terra cotta-clad Fitzroy in Chelsea, and archival work of Steinway Hall to inform the interiors of 111 West 57th Street.
