CREATIVITY. INTEGRITY. SUCCESS. Three words that explain why the Janus Property Company has become a recognized leader in the transformation of New York City’s obsolete buildings and underutilized land areas into dynamic structures and vibrant neighborhoods. The Janus Property Company is a long-term developer, owner and manager of commercial, mixed-use and residential properties in New York City with a primary focus on the creative redevelopment of properties in East, Central and West Harlem. Founded in 1989, Janus has offices in the Manhattanville Factory District. Janus has consistently undertaken challenging community development projects, creating enduring value for its tenants, partners, lenders and the greater New York City community. It specializes in understanding the numerous complex issues involved in developing and managing real property in New York City. This has resulted in an impressive portfolio ranging from the extensive rehabilitation and new construction of market rate and affordable rental and condominium housing to mixed-use projects and large-scale commercial buildings.
Scott Metzner founded Janus in 1989. He was one of the earliest developers involved in Harlem’s current rebirth, matching for-profit development with public policy and community development initiatives and goals. Prior to his New York projects, he was active in national real estate markets and international capital markets through leadership positions at Eastdil Realty, Roseland Property Company and Daiwa Securities America.
Jerry Salama has been a Principal of Janus for more than 20 years. Previously, he was Deputy Commissioner of the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development, Acting General Manager of the New York City Housing Authority and Counsel to the Deputy Mayor of New York for Finance and Economic Development. Prior to public service, he was a real estate attorney with Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison.
