DALLAS  – StreetLights Residential, a design-driven developer of multifamily and mixed-use communities, is pleased to announce three executive-level promotions. Andrew Kastanos has been promoted to Chief Financial Officer, and Case Killgore and C.J. Cacheris have joined StreetLights’ senior management team as President of Development and President of Design-Build, respectively.
“We are proud of the proven success these three leaders have achieved. They have built lasting industry relationships and have helped us hone our mission of building a company structured around design instead of capital,” said Rob de Bruin, president of StreetLights Residential. “They have also continued to lead by example and have helped to strengthen the skillsets of their colleagues and team members. I look forward to their continued leadership in their new responsibilities.”
Kastanos, who was promoted to Senior Vice President of Finance in 2022, and Chief Financial Officer at the end of 2022, is responsible for all debt and equity capital markets, as well as capital relationship management. Kastanos was one of the first employees at StreetLights after its founding in 2011, starting as a Senior Financial Analyst, and was the first member of the senior management team to be brought up from inside the organization. During his time at StreetLights, he has been involved in 44 project starts and $3.4 billion capitalized to date.
Killgore has been promoted from Senior Vice President of Development to President of Development, joining the senior management team. Killgore is responsible for overseeing the company’s development efforts across the country, including feasibility and site selection. Prior to this, he oversaw all regional development efforts after establishing the portfolio management platform. He has been with StreetLights since 2019. 
Cacheris joins the senior management team as President of Design-Build after functioning as Senior Vice President of Design-Build. Cacheris oversees the vertically integrated organizational structure of the core architectural, interior design and construction business units. During his time at StreetLights, C.J. has acted as Senior Vice President of Design-Build, Vice President of LEAN and LEAN Director. Bringing his expertise in organizational change management, business architecture and knowledge of startup technology process frameworks to StreetLights, he has transformed the way the company thinks about flow of work and how things get done.
StreetLights was founded in 2011 with a focus on complicated mixed-use and high-rise multifamily properties with a design-first approach. StreetLights takes pride in crafting the details which create the place that someone will call home with its in-house architecture and interior design teams as well as general contracting team. The company’s first project, The Taylor, was one of the first luxury high-rise buildings in Uptown Dallas. More than a decade later, StreetLights is still designing and developing iconic projects including The McKenzie, a luxury high-rise that was the first multifamily community in Texas to be Fitwel certified; The Hamilton, part of The Epic development in Deep Ellum, with design details inspired by the neighborhood’s musical history; The Hadley, a high rise in Midtown Atlanta inspired by the historic St. Mark United Methodist Church; and The Ryan, a LEED-certified high rise that is part of the mixed-use Block 23 development in Phoenix.  
“2022 truly was a defining moment, providing a lot of anticipated excitement for 2023,” said de Bruin. “Our team has worked tirelessly as ‘master craftsmen,’ demonstrating a true commitment to crafting beautiful places that lift the human spirit, despite ongoing market changes. We look forward to executing our 2023 strategy and goals.”
Since its founding, StreetLights has received over 40 prestigious industry and business awards including the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) award for Development 5 stories and Over – for Rent in 2017 for The Kenzie (Austin). StreetLights has won several other NAHB awards, including Best Interior Merchandising of a Leasing or Sales Center for The Catherine (Austin) in 2017, Best Interior Merchandising of a Common Area for The McKenzie (Dallas) in 2019, Best Interior Merchandising of a Common Area for The Angela (Phoenix) in 2020, and Best Interior Merchandising of a Model Unit in 2021 and Best Interior Merchandising of a Common Area for The Hamilton at The Epic (Dallas) in 2022. In addition to Dallas, StreetLights currently has offices in Austin, Atlanta, Orlando, Phoenix and San Diego, with additional projects underway in Houston and Nashville.
