Mr. Slasky started his career at SBJGroup as the project manager for an eleven story, 311 unit residential building in Long Island. Since then, together with Mr. Stephen Jacobs, he has designed and managed 2.25 million square feet of residential new construction projects on Long Island, and developed an expertise in the New York State Building Code.
A major focus of Mr. Slasky’s work is in Transit Oriented Development, where he seeks to strengthen historic town centers in the greater New York region with mid-rise multifamily and mixed-use buildings adjacent to commuter train stations. Mr. Slasky has piloted these projects from conception to completion, testifying at local municipality Zoning Boards, producing documentation for Building Department approval, overseeing construction administration and working together with the general contractor and owner in achieving building occupancy. Two of these projects received the Long Island Smart Growth Award as a testament to their success.
In New York City, Mr. Slasky has designed and managed mid and high-rise hotel projects, and performs peer reviews on many SBJGroup projects for compliance with Building and Energy Code.
Mr. Slasky received his Masters in Architecture from Princeton University and his B.A. from Columbia University, majoring in architecture. Prior to joining SBJGroup, Gavri worked at Kohn Pedersen Fox on supertowers in Korea, megablocks in China and urban planning for the Boston Seaport and New York’s Hudson Yards. Gavri lives in New Jersey with his wife and four children.
