About Us

The O’Connell Organization is a family-owned and operated real estate development and property management business with over 250 properties in New York State.

Over the past 50 years, the organization has rehabilitated dozens of residential and commercial properties in the Red Hook, Columbia Street Waterfront, Carroll Gardens, and Cobble Hill areas of Brooklyn, including the revitalization of Red Hook’s Civil War-era properties known as the Merchant Stores Building, The German American Stores Building, The Beard and Robinson Stores Building, and The Red Hook Stores Building.

As the original pioneers for the preservation and redevelopment of the Red Hook Waterfront, the O’Connell Organization is committed to the well-being of the community and the cultivation of vibrant and diverse local businesses, arts and culture.
