Directors Fernando Levy Hara and Stephan Gietl realised their shared passion for real estate and architecture, while attending the Advanced Management Development Program in Real Estate (AMDP) at Harvard University Graduate School of Design. AMDP is exclusively for entrepreneurs and senior-level professionals, with minimum 15 years of real estate-related experience. Both Levy Hara and Gietl are in the meantime, highly sought after speakers at Harvard University, especially on real estate cycles.

Levy Hara and Gietl have specialised during the downturn of the economy in the years 2009 and 2010 in acquiring distressed assets, amongst them notes, fractured condominiums and land. Both developed residential and commercial projects in South Florida, Europe and Latin America, including the successful waterfront condominiums Regatta and Bay View Lofts in Miami Beach.
Since its inception, McKafka Development Group has acquired notes, properties and development sites exceeding $100 million in value and has sold more than 500 units mostly to international investors. With its latest condominium development, The Crimson, McKafka Development Group will certainly leave an imprint on Miami’s skyline.

McKafka Development Group was excited to announce its latest development addition, a 282-multifamily project in Sarasota, Florida. With this development, McKafka Development Group is evidencing once more its right timing for the market.

Stephan Gietl serves as the Chief Finance Officer and Chief Operating Officer of the company. Originally from Austria, he was responsible for the completion of a mix-used project called Palladium in Downtown Prague, with more than one million square feet of shopping centre, office and parking space. Stephan is instructor of executive education at Harvard and member of Harvard’s Board of Real Estate Academic Initiative.
