Rivergate Companies, EDEN Multifamily and MCSS Development Make Key New Hires

19 July 2018

Real estate holding company and its multifamily and self-storage development joint ventures add three talented industry professionals to accommodate overall growth

 Rivergate Companies, the Miami-based real estate holding company founded by industry veteran Jay Massirman, and its joint ventures EDEN Multifamily and Miami City Self Storage (MCSS) have each expanded with critical new additions to support the overall growth of the companies.

Marc Chasin has joined Rivergate as Corporate Development Associate, a newly formed position. Chasin’s responsibilities include organizing and coordinating with team members, partners and clients, and serving as a liaison for Rivergate partners EDEN, MCSS and multifamily property management firm RKW RESIDENTIAL.

Chasin earned a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Ithaca College, where he also spent four years as a starting guard on the basketball team – three of them as team captain. He finished his Ithaca career as fourth all-time in points scored and 10th in assists.

EDEN has added Jerry Aguirre as Developer Associate. He is focusing on sourcing and identifying acquisition opportunities, project underwriting, target market research and data analytics. Aguirre’s arrival comes at a busy time for EDEN, which is nearing completion of the 349-unit Lazul apartment building in North Miami Beach and planning a 374-unit apartment tower in downtown Fort Lauderdale.

Aguirre graduated from Bentley University with a bachelor’s degree in Finance and earned a master’s degree in Entrepreneurial Leadership from Babson University.

Tyler Heckaman has joined MCSS as Acquisitions Associate, specializing in sourcing and identifying acquisition opportunities, project underwriting, target market research and data analytics. MCSS has seven self-storage projects in the pipeline in Miami-Dade and Broward counties and is on track to develop more than 1.5 million square feet in South Florida.

Heckaman graduated from Florida State University with a bachelor’s degree in Economics.

Chasin, Aguirre and Heckaman are all Miami natives. Each previously served as interns within the Rivergate family of companies.

“We are thrilled to enhance our teams at Rivergate, EDEN and MCSS with these new hires,” Massirman said. “I have seen tremendous growth from these three individuals over the past several years and have no doubt they will add value to our ventures. We continue to selectively look for talented and dedicated professionals to support our expansion.”
