Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 7, 2004
Strata Development Group, LLC (ÂSDGÂ), a real estate development and investment company based in Los Angeles, today announced its New Zealand subsidiary, Strata Development Group NZ Limited, is planning to undertake a second residential development in New Zealand in 2005.
This announcement by SDG Managing Partner and CEO Jason M. Neal follows recently announced plans for a luxurious apartment development at the exclusive Jacks Point golf resort in Queenstown, New Zealand.
ÂWe have identified a rapidly growing demand for high-end apartments in New Zealand, but very few developments which can be classed as luxurious.Â says Neal, ÂThis is a unique opportunity to redefine the luxury segment of the New Zealand real estate market.Â
Originally from New Zealand and now residing in the United States, Mr. Neal is a seasoned entrepreneur with more than 15 years real estate experience in both New Zealand and the United States.
SDG is a collaboration between Mr. NealÂs U.S-based company JumpStart Capital, and private equity and venture capital firm Funk Ventures, headed by entrepreneur turned investor Andy J. Funk. SDG was formed to conduct high-end, ultra-luxurious residential and hotel developments in the worldÂs most exclusive locations.
ÂWe are fortunate to play a role in this emerging market,Â says Andy Funk, who serves SDG as Managing Partner. ÂNew Zealand offers the privacy and exclusivity we seek in each project.Â
With two residential developments planned for New Zealand, SDG is also considering locations for a luxury hotel and spa development, which would include a residential component that blends apartment living with the amenities offered by a first class hotel.
ÂI look forward to introducing luxury properties which will benefit New Zealanders and compliment our countryÂs captivating scenery.Â says Neal.
