Our Mission

NYO Property Group is committed to bring these buildings back to life, where people invest time, money and energy into the life of the Downtown & Campus District. NYO Property Group understands that a successful rebound for Youngstown, Ohio will require multiple layers of collaboration on a local, state and even federal level.

Our Staff

3Dominic J. Marchionda

Dominic is a Youngstown native and graduate of both Cardinal Mooney High school and Mt. Union College. For 18 years Dominic held National Account Manager/Sales positions and traveled the country for several major shoe companies such as Nike, Saucony, Reebok, and Keds.

In the early 1990’s, Dominic was offered a promotion that would require him to move his family out of Ohio. When he discussed the offer with his father Attilio, the advice he received was that although Youngstown was bleak at the time, it had provided them with a good living and the luxury of close family ties and that Youngstown would “come back one day” and not to give up on this town. Dominic took his fathers’ words to heart, and firmly planted his roots in the Mahoning Valley and declined the promotion.

As his young family expanded and traveling became less appealing, Dominic decided to switch gears and in 1994, Dominic partnered with his father in-law, Fernando Rubino, and together they founded Rubino Construction, Inc. In 2002 Dominic left the corporate world to launch his first residential development, Tuscany Estates in Poland, Ohio. The development is one of the most successful single-family residential subdivision projects between Cleveland and Pittsburgh.

In 2008, sensing the severity of the recession, Dominic began to look at ways to diversify the company and focus on development patterns that would be more economy proof. This led him to his first multi-family development project. After studying the regional markets for available land, he decided that there was plenty of need for student housing in his hometown. His research pointed him in the direction of the Youngstown State University campus. In 2010 The Flats at Wick was completed. In 2012, Dominic and his wife Jacqueline completed the renovation of the historic Erie Terminal Place on Commerce Street in downtown Youngstown. Both projects have been embraced by downtown residents as well as locally owned small businesses.

Currently, in partnership with Pan Brothers of NYC, Dominic formed NYO Property Group and is renovating the Wick Tower on the corner of Phelps and Federal Street. This project is highly anticipated and slated to open Fall of 2015. There are also several plans in the works to expand the business’ portfolio and to continue the renaissance momentum in our University/Downtown corridor.

Dominic and his wife Jacqueline are the proud parents to sons Dominic, Chris, Anthony and Nico.
