Our Company

The New Project Group is a full service real estate company located in New York City.  We own and operate individually designed furnished rental apartments; provide home search support to relocating corporate executives; and through our partner company The New Design Projectprovide interior design, space planning and project management services to homeowners, commercial businesses and the hospitality sector.

All our rental properties are located in Manhattan in buildings of architectural interest, and are renovated and furnished to showcase our passion for design.  Our guests are design conscious New Yorkers or visitors to the city looking for a more cost effective, lifestyle oriented alternative to a traditional hotel or serviced apartment.

As a licensed real estate agent, we also leverage our own corporate background, and first-hand experience of international relocation to provide an independent, peer-to-peer alternative to the home search needs of relocating corporate executives and high net worth individuals.
