Development Team


BTI’s origins date back to the late 1950’s when Arthur Breakstone founded the Breakstone Group, a residential developer, multifamily builder, hotel developer and real estate investor.
In the late 1980’s, the management of the company transitioned to Noah, Arthur Breakstone’s son, who has grown it into one of Florida’s premier master-planned developers, luxury home builders, multifamily developers and landowners.  BTI Partners has evolved through the years to focus on large scale master planned projects. Noah’s entrepreneurial approach, combined with over 30 years of extensive real estate finance, construction and development experience, provides BTI with the flexibility to perform a variety of roles required in complex real estate transactions involving all asset classes in urban cores across Florida.

Today, BTI Partners is one of Florida’s leading real estate and land developers.  The company is reshaping cities across Florida by master-planning vibrant mixed-use communities, building luxury residential projects, re-activating marinas, and revitalizing neighborhoods with highly amenitized commercial and residential developments.

Core values of integrity, passion, excellence, selflessness and purpose are central to the company’s ethos. Its successful track record has established BTI Partners as an industry leader in creating urban enclaves that attract and sustain local business and family life. By seamlessly integrating residential, commercial, retail, hospitality, entertainment, education, and recreational uses, BTI Partners designs highly desirable ‘live, work, play’ communities to meet the needs of today and tomorrow.

Looking to the future, BTI Partners remains ever mindful of evolving trends and continues to seek opportunities to develop transformational and inspirational mixed-use projects through-out the sunbelt states.
