AREPA Distinguished Speaker Event

Shibber Khan

Developer and Investor, Criterion Group Biography:

Mr. Khan will be speaking on Criterion’s two projects currently under construction including  11-39 49th Avenue, Long Island City, and 30-77 Vernon Boulevard & 30-80 12th Street, Astoria. 14 years ago, in 2002, Shibber founded Criterion Group, under which he started his first construction project, an 8 unit building. Shibber was intimately involved with every stage of the development platform, from sweeping the site to developing architectural plans and applying for tax abatements. This experience has allowed him to master the entire process of development and construction, including working with the Department of Transportation, Department of Buildings, and acquiring financing. Each project has progressively and organically grown into the large-scale projects, at an average of 300 units per building that Criterion is embarking upon today. As one of the first developers in the area, Criterion continues to focus on primarily multifamily residential projects in Western Queens (Astoria/LIC). Criterion and its staff, all of whom call Western Queens home (most since childhood), are intimately familiar with every block of these inter-connected neighborhoods. Currently, Criterion controls 2.5 million SF of total development rights. 

The event will take place on:

Thursday June 16, 2016

from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
