Ken is responsible for development services, managing the entitlement and design process for new projects for The Breeden Company. He also works closely with Brian, President of Breeden Construction in prospective deals, helping the development team understand the viability of potential opportunities. Ken’s experience in the development and construction of large multifamily and mixed-use projects also provides the company the opportunity to anticipate exposure and create savings through practical value engineering practices.

Ken has over 20 years of experience in the development and construction of multifamily projects, including three story surface parked projects to dense urban infill projects with structured parking. He is well versed in the entire project life-cycle, from understanding the development needs, site risk, construction cost, logistics and ultimately achieving the end user product. Ken works with the design team from the onset of the project through the permitting phase and provides support to the Project Mangers as the projects move into the construction phase. Ken joined the company in August 2015 as the company expanded and was commanding a larger share of the multifamily market for both in-house and third-party projects.

Prior to joining Breeden Construction, Ken was Vice President of Construction and Development Manager for Roseland Property Company of Short Hills, NJ, completing multiple large-scale multifamily and mixed-use projects in New Jersey and Virginia.
