Savanna celebrated its valued partners and friends at its fourth annual "Best in Craft" event on June 11 at 60 Tenth Ave., a Savanna property located underneath the High Line in the Meatpacking District. The event was attended by over 500 of New York City's real estate industry professionals who have made an impact on Savanna's growth and success over the past year.
The guests were treated to a fun filled evening full of great company, food, drinks and music, while enjoying the space and one of the warmest spring evenings of the season.
Savanna, the New York-based institutional real estate private equity firm and asset management company run by managing partners Chris Schlank and Nick Bienstock, hosts its "Best in Craft" event every year to honor its partners and friends for the work they accomplished throughout the year.
Savanna pursues opportunistic real estate equity and debt asset investments throughout the northeastern United States, with a particular focus on New York City. The firm's equity investments target superior risk-adjusted returns by adding value through asset management and/or property development, redevelopment, and repositioning. Savanna's "Best in Craft" event allows the opportunity to honor those in the NYC area that helped Savanna achieve its growing success. FIRST PHOTO:
