WSFSSH is a non-profit housing development and management company that has been providing affordable housing to seniors and others in need for over 40 years. WSFSSH owns, manages, and provides supportive services in 26 buildings (in Harlem, the Bronx, and the West Side of Manhattan) serving over 2,000 individuals. WSFSSH specifically seeks to provide quality affordable housing and services to the elderly, homeless individuals, persons living with HIV/AIDS, individuals with mental illness, and others to enable them to live independently within the community.
WSFSSH’s real estate development focuses on new construction and substantial rehabilitation of housing units, often including complementary community facility and/or commercial spaces, as well as the acquisition and preservation of existing housing units to ensure their long-term affordability. The WSFSSH Development Team currently includes a Director, three Senior Project Managers (SPMs), and a Project Manager (PM). WSFSSH currently has approximately 750,000 square feet in our development pipeline. The 7 pipeline projects encompass 860 units of housing, a 480-seat charter middle school, two senior centers, and two Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs). WSFSSH development projects are typically financed via debt financing, a range of local, state and federal capital grants; and equity proceeds from the sale of tax credits (i.e. Low Income Housing Tax Credits and Brownfield Tax Credits).
The Project Manager for Real Estate Development (PM) will report to the WSFSSH Director of Real Estate Development and will work in collaboration with WSFSSH Senior Project Managers to facilitate a range of projects from pre-development through construction and permanent financing conversion. Commensurate with prior experience, the PM will both provide project support for major initiatives being overseen by the SPMs and may also serve as the lead project manager for stand-alone development initiatives in the pipeline.
