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.
