Houlihan Lawrence has announced that New York City real estate veteran Steve Cid has joined its Commercial Group. Cid, who has 24 years of experience in the city’s commercial and residential real estate business, previously served as a senior vice president with both the Corcoran Group and Douglas Elliman.

“Steve Cid is a major player in the New York City commercial real estate market and we’re thrilled to have him join our busy team,” said Thomas LaPerch, director of the Commercial Group. “He brings to our team a rich background in residential real estate, a national reputation, and an ability to bring major off-market properties to the many investors he represents.”

For years, Cid was a top residential producer, selling scores of luxury condos, co-ops and townhouses while mentoring some of New York’s highest producing agents, before moving into the commercial arena.

Cid has brought to market a wide range of new development projects such as the reimagining of the 1860 Washington Square Methodist Church in Greenwich Village into luxury condos, Morgan Lofts in Midtown, 157 East 84th St. and 441 East 57th St. in Sutton Place. He was also the director of Worldwide Sales for Utopia, a $1.2-billion residential ocean liner co-venture with Samsung.

Houlihan Lawrence reported that Cid is currently brokering several major mixed-use development sites—a 500,000-square-foot Times Square site, two projects in Seattle, and another in West Los Angeles. He’s also working on several off-market Class A office buildings in New York, Boston, and Chicago, and multifamily properties and hotels in New York City and Florida. He is the co-founder of Giving House, the highly regarded real estate-based philanthropic initiative that donates a percentage of participating agents’ commissions to deserving Westchester, Hudson Valley and New York City non-profits.
