Our Story

Metaverse Design + Studio (“MVD Studio”) was founded in 2021 to bridge a major gap in the real estate development lifecycle. All too often, projects are stalled or abandoned due to the inability to get city approval or raise investor capital. The notion of “not throwing good money after bad” causes developers to abandon projects early to avoid catastrophic loss. Our goal at MVD is twofold:

  1. We aim to condense the initial design process from 10-12 weeks to 1-2 weeks
  2. We want to ensure that all stakeholders in a development deal have an opportunity to truly understand the planned project before making decisions.

By using cutting-edge technology, the team at MVD Studio can show you versions of your planned project that have been historically unavailable.

MVD Studio Founders, Adam and Justin, come from Construction and Architecture backgrounds, respectively. Adam is the CEO of one of the fastest growing Commercial Construction firms in the US while Justin is a licensed architect with a passion for technology. Together, they understand the initial phases of development processes and have made it their mission to close the gap between concept and realization. They believe that there are a large number of deals being denied by local municipalities or financing institutions only due to the lack of these institutions to truly visualize the product. They also believe that there are far too many visionaries who aren’t truly happy with their final products due to the gap in visualization within the development process.
