Winndevelopment: The preferred development partner
Over four decades, WinnDevelopment has earned a national reputation for award-winning excellence in real estate development, acquiring and developing holdings with a value in excess of $2.5 billion in 10 states. In addition, we have improved or converted more than 5 million square feet of property into prime space for a wide range of businesses and commercial properties.
The WinnDevelopment portfolio spans affordable housing, market-rate housing, mixed-use and mixed-income developments, urban and suburban garden-style and high-rise apartment communities, along with office buildings, hotels, retail, and medical offices and parking garage facilities. Most recently, our property successes have been focused in large scale mixed-use and mixed-income developments.
We are long-term owners and we are devoted to the communities we serve. In fact, we still own the first housing property we built to give WinnCompanies its start. We are proud to say that, despite several difficult economic cycles, we have never missed a mortgage payment or defaulted on any project.
WinnDevelopment recent work has focused on the acquisition and repositioning of troubled multifamily properties, and the acquisition and sensitive adaptive re-use of dilapidated historic structures into vibrant living communities. By using innovative government subsidy mechanisms and implementing superior management practices, these ventures are nurtured to successful operation for decades to come.
One of our specialties is property rehabilitation and turnaround. Urban renewal is important to us, as we strive to better our communities by working with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and various state and local agencies. Through innovative financing and government subsidy mechanisms along with improved management practices, and a focus on the property's capital needs, we set up these properties for successful long-term operation.
Historic Adaptive reuse
WinnDevelopment is an award-winning national leader in the adaptive reuse of historic properties and landmark structures. During the past three decades in Mid-Atlantic and the Northeast, we have transformed 28 historic properties into more than 3,100 units of mixed-income housing in mixed-use communities valued at $500 million. We recently completed the $20.7 million transformation of the historic Livingston School in Albany, NY, into 103 units of mixed-income housing for senior citizens. We also are in the midst of a 10-year effort to renovate the iconic, 12-story Sibley Building in downtown Rochester for commercial and academic uses, as well as market-rate and affordable housing.
