About Us
The Rockridge Group was founded on the principle of protecting Owners interests during their own capital projects. 

Being an active Owner and Real Estate Developer for over twenty years on its own real estate development projects, The Rockridge Group sought out to provide Owners the same level of excellence in managing, building, and successfully completing their own capital projects.  We believe that even the savviest property Owners can lose leverage and control over their own projects due to the conflicting agendas circulating around the project team over the course of time.  Our mission at the Rockridge Group is to advocate solely on the Owners behalf throughout the different phases of a capital project, provide expert oversight, management, and reporting skills to ensure our client’s project goals and design visions are met. x


Robert Arzanipour, Founder and CEO of The Rockridge Group has been an active and successful Owner, Operator and Real Estate Developer in the New York City and Long Island “Gold Coast” real estate markets since 1994. During his career he has been involved with the ownership, construction and management of nearly five hundred thousand square feet of residential, and mixed-use properties. Robert received a BA in Economics, and a Masters of Science in Real Estate Investment & Finance from New York University.
Philosophy & Approach
There are an abundance of pitfalls that can jeopardize the design intent, timing and financial stability of a capital project.  An Owner must balance the multiple relationships it has with its design professionals, general contractor/construction manager, as well as specialty consultants.

Successful projects require an Owner’s oversight.  Many Owners either do not have the time and capacity to oversee and manage capital projects, or they must focus on their primary business.  Even the most construction savvy Owners can fall prey to the overwhelming time constraints, responsibilities, and pressures of completing a successful capital project, and can be forced at the most inopportune times to accept costly change orders and delays just to see their projects completed.

The Rockridge Group provides its clients the services necessary to successfully maintain their central role over the many players involved in their project. Our goal on every project is to put ourselves in the shoes of our clients and track, qualify and quantify every dollar that is spent, or planning to be spent.   We provide our client’s alternatives, and recommendations in order to assist them in making appropriate financial and design decisions that align with their objectives.  Design elements and building costs are scrutinized to make sure client’s are able to adhere to their budget constraints and realize their design vision.
