Creating and preserving affordable housing for low-income communities is a complex process that requires close collaboration with diverse partners, from government agencies and financial institutions to tenant associations and nonprofit developers. We are problem solvers, consistently keeping our projects on time and on budget. To date, MDG has created or preserved 17,500 units of affordable housing and is responsible for nearly $1.7 billion in construction and development. We are New York’s complete solution for creating, preserving, and managing affordable housing.
MDG’s quality is unparalleled.
At MDG, we are committed to excellence at all stages of our business. From personalized service for our tenants and partners to high quality, market-rate finishes at our developments, we create homes that our residents are proud to live in.
In an ever-evolving world, we pride ourselves in conducting business with the highest degree of integrity and ethics, safeguarding our workers, and ensuring that those we work with, including subcontractors and vendors, uphold our standards. As such, we have developed and instituted state-of-the-art wage compliance monitoring programs—the strictest in the City—that are now the standard in the governmentally assisted construction industry.
MDG puts people first.
MDG was formed in 1988 by our two principals, driven by a genuine passion to create affordable housing that low-income New Yorkers would be proud to call home.
Today, whether creating homeownership opportunities or rescuing distressed buildings, the people-first philosophy inspired by our principals almost 30 years ago continues to guide MDG’s work, allowing us to successfully restore neighborhoods and improve the lives of local residents.
Open-door approach: We take care of our residents, proactively soliciting feedback and listening to their concerns to meet their needs and create homes they love.
Partner collaboration: We put our partners’ needs first, identifying their priorities, presenting holistic solutions, preparing for any contingencies, and advising on the best course of action.
Dedication to staff and community: We treat our staff like family, providing job opportunities, a supportive work environment, and training in the neighborhoods where we work. Through extensive community outreach, we hire locally and are a leader in hiring MWBEs for our projects.
