Affordable Housing Development
The Michaels Development Company
Headquartered in Marlton, NJ, about 15 miles from Philadelphia, PA , the Michaels Development Company is a nationally recognized, private sector firm with over 30 years of experience in producing top quality, affordable housing. All aspects of housing development, from site acquisition through property management, are within the expertise and experience of our company and its affiliates. Since the early 1970s, The Michaels Development Company has successfully developed over 40,000 housing units in 28 states, the District of Columbia and the U. S. Virgin Islands and has managed over $1 billion of new construction and substantial rehabilitation.
The Michaels Development Company’s focus is the development of affordable rental housing. We own and operate more than 100 communities affordable to lower income families and senior citizens through project-based Section 8 and similar federal assistance; and more than two-dozen communities affordable to working families through the low income housing tax credit program.
Michaels is also a pioneer in the development of new, large-scale, communities that are designed for renters and homeowners with a broad range of incomes. Many of these communities involve HOPE VI funding. A federal program, HOPE VI seeks to "reinvent" public housing through the introduction of private sector development and property management. There are over 7,500 residential units in our HOPE VI pipeline that exceed $1.2 billion in value.
