Dmitry Druzhinsky grew a passion for property development back in 2000, when he spearheaded the construction of his house. He has since been responsible for the development and sale of over one hundred pieces of property. As co-founder of MatchPoint NYC, his experience in the acquisition and rezoning of land was instrumental to the completion of this great $20 million facility. The negotiation process with New York City’s Board of Standards and Appeals was arduous: to gain permission to develop the highly sought after three acre lot, the businessman worked with the city to “de-map” a street which had been unused for the last century, but bisected one of the parcels where the structure was to be built. Upon its grand opening, the center became the largest recreational facility of it’s like in Brooklyn, and the second largest complex in all of New York.
