Principal, Executive Vice President of Development
An expert in all aspects of complex, mixed-use urban development, Abe Menzin is fascinated by the interdisciplinary nature of the field. “I love complex projects,” he notes, “early in my career I managed the construction of large projects, but having a hand in shaping the direction of the project is what drew me to development.”
Abe arrived at Samuels & Associates in 2010 with the desire to, in his words, “work with the best people in the industry.” He’s passionate about working on projects, like the Van Ness, Landmark Center and Parcel 12, which make a positive impact on the community. He’s especially fond of those ventures that require large teams, many moving parts and meticulous planning.
While not building communities for thousands of Boston residents, Abe can be found spending time with his four kids and, in the winter, perfecting his backyard skating rink.
Abe holds an undergraduate degree from Tufts University and two master’s degrees, one in real estate development and the other in civil engineering, from MIT. Abe is on the board of A Better City (ABC) and has served as co-Chair of the CJP’s Real Estate team and was a pro bono real estate advisor for Cradles to Crayons.
