Alan S. Macken
Alan S. Macken is CEO of Macken Companies, a vertically integrated firm with real estate investment, development, construction, financing and brokerage entities. Celebrating over 30 years in business, Macken has been instrumental in the repositioning and revitalization of neighborhoods throughout South Florida. The name Macken has become synonymous with visionary planning and development, superior construction, and record-breaking sales and marketing. As a fully integrated firm, Macken Companies’ affiliate entities, VCM Builders and Macken Realty, work in tandem to offer clients complete residential and commercial real estate solutions.
During a career that began in 1986, Macken has honed his skills as a real estate developer, investor, broker and constructor. He has planned, developed, leased and sold ultra-exclusive residential properties, as well as professional office space, single-family planned unit developments, townhome communities, office condos, high-rise condominiums and retail shopping centers throughout Florida.
He has played significant role in real estate development and transactions that value in excess of $1 billion. Many of these properties were also marketed and sold or leased through Macken Realty, his eponymous brokerage firm, which currently includes in excess of 300 agents out of three offices Dade and Broward.
As a Principal at VCM Builders, the Macken Companies’ construction affiliate, Macken’s primary focus is design and development as well as pursuing new business opportunities and structuring partnerships. Macken also spearheads property acquisitions and financial modeling. VCM Builders has won several construction and development awards for residential and commercial construction throughout the tri-county area.
Macken’s commercial portfolio has included an array of regional and national tenants included but not limited to Walmart, Yum Brands, Circle K Corporation, 7-Eleven, Inc., Texaco Gasoline, T-Mobile, Subway, Family Dollar, BankUnited, and Banco Popular.
During the past 13 years, Macken has assembled ownership of a city block in North Miami Beach. With a strong understanding of the city’s challenges and opportunities, Macken acted as a catalyst and encouraged the city to adopt a revolutionary new master plan. That plan was enacted by the City of North Miami Beach, ratified by the State of Florida and has since resulted in array of new projects. A transformation is now underway on the West Dixie Highway corridor and Macken is uniquely positioned to revitalize this property and welcome new tenants.
With a keen eye on market trends, Macken continues to seek business opportunities that provide unique opportunities.
