He has significant experience in the development business and as director of leasing for an opportunity fund prior to turning his focus to third-party advisory. He is exactly the kind of real estate professional that we are looking to attract as we strategically build out our suburban market coverage. Jason and I will work together to build a strong team to serve the strategic needs of our clients north of Boston.”
Collins continues: “With his deep experience negotiating diverse office, R&D and industrial lease and sale transactions, Jason will be able to provide clients with creative real estate solutions to enhance their overall operations.”
Prior to spending 18 years with CBRE, Levendusky was director of leasing for WP Commercial, a Goldman Sachs opportunity fund. He began his career with Nordblom Company, working on the redevelopment of multiple office and flex projects. During the past five years, he has negotiated approximately 185 lease and sale transactions spanning more than 6 million square feet of commercial properties. His notable clients have included Invesco, RREEF/DWS, Bentall Kennedy, Endpoint Clinical, Zone Labs and GE.
“I’m excited to become a new Principal of Avison Young and have the opportunity to lead the expansion of our north Boston service line,” says Levendusky. “I look forward to expanding the north Boston team while continuing to serve investors, owners and occupiers in this highly dynamic area. Our brand has considerable room to grow here.”
He adds: “I was attracted to Avison Young’s strong, steady growth in New England, the firm’s emphasis on partnership and collaboration, and its dedication to community involvement. I look forward to networking with my new colleagues across the company as we strive to build better communities in Boston and beyond.”
During his career, Levendusky has received numerous honors, including being named a CoStar Power Broker multiple times. He is active in the industry as a member of the Greater Boston Real Estate Board’s Commercial Brokers Association and sits on the board of Habitat for Humanity’s Cape Ann chapter.
