The Multi-Family Housing Development (MHD) Department is comprised of professional project managers and project coordinators who are responsible for the development, design and financing of affordable multi-family housing projects.  Both, rehabilitated projects and new construction, projects are primarily designed to be for rent. MHD reports to the EVP/CFO.  Project managers lead the project delivery process, including all phases of finance, design, entitlement, permitting, project budgeting/accounting, and schedules. MHD is tasked with balancing and meeting the diverse needs and goals of PSHH and The Duncan Group (TDG), including program, sustainability, aesthetics, risk, budget, and schedule.

Our mission is to provide professional leadership to plan and develop high community valued, quality, long-term cost-effective facilities and landscapes that affordably serve our residents and embrace our partnership with our community. Additionally MHD is charged with preserving existing affordable apartments in the community that are deemed at risk of losing their affordability and displacing their lower-income earning households. MHD endeavors include:

  • Pursue the PSHH Strategic Plan goals and NeighborWorks production goals
  • Provide services with integrity and professionalism
  • Communicate effectively with internal/external stakeholders and consultants
  • Lead project teams to successful outcomes
  • Balance competing priorities of the various stakeholders
  • Approach project challenges with creativity, respecting the ideas of others
