About Lettire Construction Corporation
With more than 30 years of experience in the field, Lettire Construction Corporation is well-known in New York City’s multi-family housing sector. In its early years, Lettire Construction developed a strong reputation for doing elegant interior renovations in restaurants and high-scale residences, but has since evolved into a well-rounded organization with a solid record of experience in both market rate oriented and mixed-income housing. Along the way, Lettire Construction has built strong relationships with leaders all through the industry – private and not-for-profit developers, financial institutions, government agencies, design and engineering professionals, as well as the whole range of subcontractors and suppliers.
Lettire Construction has become active in the movement, spearheaded both by the City and the private sector, to increase the supply of mixed-income and affordable housing in the five boroughs. Nicholas Lettire and Gerard Lettire co-founded Lettire Construction in 1979. They believe in a “hands-on” approach to construction, which must be applied equally to very high-end interior residential work as well as to institutional supportive housing projects. They adopted this approach as they came up through the ranks learning the trades of carpentry and painting. Nicholas Lettire remains intimately involved in all aspects of construction, from the initial bidding process through day-to-day supervision to final completion. This personal commitment to each project drives what Nicholas Lettire believes should be the value proposition for a successful construction practice: to consistently deliver a high-quality product that creates real value for its customers. Their industry knowledge and ability to be effective construction team managers provides a solid foundation to this development team.
