Jonathan Segal: Entrepreneur Architect

Jonathan Segal: Architect, Developer, Contractor, Owner.

The September issue of Architect magazine had a very interesting article about Segal. Since 1990, he has designed, financed and built almost two dozen buildings. No clients. No partners.

From the article:

Last year, he sold 141 apartments, in five separate developments, to a group of investors. The price, he said, was just over $300,000 a unit, which sounds modest—until you do the multiplication: Segal’s take was about $45 million. And he accomplished that while in his early 40s, a time when many architects feel lucky to make ends meet. (Not jealous yet? Without clients to rein in his aesthetic choices, Segal has also won a slew of local and national design awards.)

That’s FORTY FIVE MILLION DOLLARS. Who says architects can’t make big money? Jonathan Segal is the definition of an Entrepreneur Architect.

Interested in learning more about how he does it? Check out his seminar series coming to the east coast this spring.

    Thanks for your comment. Being an Entrepreneur Architect myself, I have not had the time to post as much as I would like. I do post regularly over at my other blog,

    I too am very interested in business success and the practice of architecture. I will try to post more often.
