We’re Catalyst City


About Us

Catalyst City Development, LLC. is a private, Philadelphia based real estate development and operating firm founded in 2016 by Tyler McNeil and Brian Zoubek.   The firm exclusively pursues value-add and opportunistic redevelopment opportunities in multi-family and mixed-use properties in Philadelphia and surrounding neighborhoods.  As Philly natives, the firm relies on an extensive network of relationships, unparalleled sub-market knowledge and meticulous underwriting to identify off-market, mismanaged and underperforming assets.  The principal’s entrepreneurial spirit and hands-on approach enables the firm to execute on these opportunities creating attractive risk adjusted returns for its investor base.

Making a positive impact in the local community is a cornerstone of the firm’s mission and a consideration in each and every project that we pursue. We believe in urbanization, creating home experiences through superior design and technology and fostering a sense of community within our buildings and the surrounding neighborhood. We are very passionate about the future of Philadelphia and are committed to being a Catalyst for its ongoing development.

Catalyst City Development is a fully integrated real estate firm specializing in the acquisition and redevelopment of mismanaged and underperforming properties in Philadelphia.
