I’m Jeremy Erdreich, an architect and real estate developer based in New York, NY and Birmingham, AL. My own architecture firm, Erdreich Architecture, was founded in 1998 and pursues projects in various locales; Metropolitan, the development firm operated with my sister Anna and my father, Ben, pursues projects in and around Birmingham.
I grew up in Birmingham until age 14, when my family moved to Washington DC. I studied architecture at Yale, Harvard, and University of Cambridge (UK), then worked in NYC for a couple years. I lived in a Williamsburg loft–just when the neighborhood was transitioning from artsy to hipster–and the redevelopment patterns there inspired me to move back to Birmingham. Among other things, I’ve tried since I moved back to make downtown and the surrounding area a better place to live and visit.
In Birmingham, I live and work downtown with a 5-minute walking commute. Many days I do not get into a car, a relative rarity in a place like Birmingham. Needless to say, my 100% car-less situation in New York is a big plus.
My apartment in New York is on West 54th Street in Hell’s Kitchen, and I work most days there on Varick Street in Soho. I enjoy promoting the two cities I love most in the world: one deep in the heart of Dixie, the other on that magical isle of Manhattan.
