Our buildings are works in progress.


White Roof Project nonprofit partners learn from their experience with sustainability and lay the groundwork necessary to seek funds for additional ‘green’ projects.

White roof partners have utilized knowledge gained during our partnership to apply for rooftop garden grants, funds for solar panels to work in conjunction with their white roof, and many in-building sustainability initiatives. We are proud to help introduce communities and nonprofits to new potential donors and creative affordable ways to be better neighbors.

Lott CDC Buildings

We’re expanding our footprint in Harlem next year. Live in or like this neighborhood? The Lott Community Development Corporation Project could be for you.

The Lott Community Development Corporation was founded on a single mission: to build a better quality of life for New York’s elderly, those who were formerly homeless, and individuals of low to moderate income. The organization accomplishes this mission by building safe, sustainable, beautiful housing, and providing supportive services that help residents lead independent and fulfilling lives.

Pitt Street

Live in downtown Manhattan? We are working there too. Buildings on Pitt Street are on our 2014 agenda.

Our Pitt Street project is a partnership with BRC (Bowery Residents’ Committee), which servers homeless New Yorkers.  Founded in 1971 by lodgers of the Bowery’s old skid row, BRC is a leading provider of housing and services to well over 10,000 of New York City’s neediest individuals.
