Ricardo Pagan is the founder and CEO of Claridge Properties, a 100% minority-owned real estate investment, and development firm. His success in revitalizing communities with affordable housing and saving iconic building projects can be seen in New York, Los Angeles, Detroit, Texas, and Miami. He is not only a self-taught visionary but also an executor which is seen in his work spearheading the surmountable Angels Landing Project. The project brings together three other multicultural developers and, when completed, will be the largest building west of the Mississippi River. The Angels Landing Partners aim to contract 30% minority and women-owned businesses across the project. It’s a $1.5 Billion mixed-use development proposed for the Bunker Hill neighborhood of downtown Los Angeles that will generate millions in annual tax revenues for L.A. and create thousands of new jobs.
