We are looking forward to new and exciting opportunities of new development projects being accomplished together with Rocha.”

As president and CEO of Sofran Group, Rocha directed real estate investments and served as advisor and strategic development consultant to numerous real estate investors and developers. Sofran Group was the development partner of Nader + Museu LLP, a private partnership pursuing a $900 million mixed-used development in downtown Miami. Rocha also spearheaded the $300 million development of the ultra-luxury Faena Mar Condominium in Miami Beach for Faena Group.

Prior to forming Sofran Group, Rocha spent over 26 years with The Related Group, where he directed all rental and condominium development, new construction, project financing, land acquisition and project disposition, while playing a vital role in the sales, marketing, lease-up and asset management function of the firm’s properties.

“Stuart Meyers is a leader in multi-family housing and mixed-use development and has completed the development of more than 20,000 apartment units representing 70 communities and valued at over $1.5 billion,” said Rocha in a press release. “I’m looking forward to working with them to bring high-quality projects to new markets,”
