Altamonte apartment builder Lecesse Development talks new projects, leadership transition and scraping floors in the heat
Sal Leccese's first job was miserable: He scraped floors for his father's contracting business while he dealt with hay fever.
"It was the bottom," Leccese said. "My mother would holler at my father."
Leccese, though, would go on to buy the business from his family and transform it into Altamonte Springs-based apartment developer LeCesse Development Corp. where he's president, founder and CEO. The business routinely tops $100 million a year in annual volume of construction completed. In addition, after a slow 2020, the firm plans to build between 3,000-5,000 apartment units across the U.S. through 2026 as the nation's economy rebounds from the pandemic.
Meanwhile, Leccese himself is slowly turning the business over to a new generation of leaders: COO Caleb Keenan and Executive Vice Presidents T.J. Leccese and John Flynn, respectively.
Keenan and Sal Leccese recently spoke with Orlando Business Journal about the past and future of Leccese and the outlook for apartment construction locally. Read on here.
