OVERVIEW

 

R. Randy Lee has been involved in every phase of the real estate and building business for almost 50 years. First as a salesman, then a construction superintendent and, finally, as a developer and homebuilder in his own right.  During the same period, he attended New York University and Brooklyn Law School, earning a B.S. (Real Estate/Finance) Degree in 1965 and JD (Law) Degree in 1969.  Using his training as a lawyer, developer and homebuilder, he became one of the most active and experienced low-rise housing builders and developers in New York City.  He has been a principal in the site development and/or construction of more than 5,000 market rate and affordable residential units, including several Low Income Tax Credit rental and commercial projects. He is a Registered Construction Superintendent and General Contractor in the City of New York.

R. Randy Lee is past Chairman of the Building Industry Association of New York City (BIANYC), as well as a current Senior Life Director of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). He has served NAHB in many capacities over the years, in particular as Chairman of its Legal Action Committee.  He is also a long standing member of the NAHB Executive Board and has been the Chairman of the NAHB LANDS Program since its inception over twenty years ago.  LANDS (Legal Action Network for Development Strategies), among other things, created a nationwide network of land use attorneys who are dedicated to the common goal of achieving fair and constitutionally appropriate land use decisions at all levels. He also manages a multi-million dollar nationwide pro-active litigation program for NAHB.   Mr. Lee has been the recipient of many local, state and national awards over the years, and was elected to the New York City and New York State Builder’s Association (NYSBA) Homebuilders Hall of Fame in 2002 and 2004, respectively.

Mr. Lee also serves as Chairman Emeritus of the Staten Island Economic Development Corporation and he has served as Chairman of SINY, NYS Title Attorneys Bar Association and the Urban Affordable Housing Coalition. As a long-standing Vice-president of the Jewish Community Center of Staten Island he managed the development and construction of its flagship building – a $40 million dollar effort. In 2014 he founded and currently Chairs the SI/NYC Real Estate Development Roundtable.

In addition to Mr. Lee's business, charitable and trade association responsibilities, he has been a visiting lecturer at the New York University Real Estate Institute, Columbia University Graduate Real Estate Program, and the National Judicial College.  He has also contributed articles to the Wall St. Journal, New York and National Law Journals, New York State Bar Journal, New York Post, Real Estate Weekly, Real Estate NY and The Empire State Report.  His outstanding record of accomplishments is frequently recognized by the national, local and trade press.  Both he and his developments have been featured in the New York Times, Daily News, Staten Island Advance, Builder Magazine, Empire State Builder, and Real Estate Weekly, Crain's New York Business, New York Construction News and Industry magazine.
