The A. Philip Randolph Houses, located on a block of 114th Street in Harlem in New York City, used to stand as a symbol of urban decay, neglect and budget shortfalls. Today, however, they stand as a symbol of what strong partnerships between public and private entities can accomplish with vision, hard work and determination.

Boston-based Trinity Financial, a developer with a reputation for transforming urban areas, in partnership with local community based development corporation West Harlem Group Assistance (WHGA), was chosen as the developer on a gut rehabilitation project that will ultimately transform 36 buildings into a modern public housing complex situated within a historic district.

The 1960s were an era of suburban growth. The promise of new economic centers led Santa Clara, Calif., to bulldoze its historic downtown – which had buildings dating back to the 1800s. But the urban renewal that leaders promised never materialized. The city has been without a true downtown for 50 years as developers have tried and failed to gain widespread support for their projects – until now.

SiliconSage Builders is underway with a 44-unit mixed-use condominium building that it says marks the first major project in downtown Santa Clara in 20 years. Sanjeev Acharya, owner and president of SiliconSage, says his company overcame local resistance because it took the time to speak with residents and incorporate their feedback into the final design. The project is now on pace to open in 2018.

“It took a lot of dealing with neighbors where you can win their heart and show them you are doing something that will benefit their community,” Acharya says. “We broke that barrier of mistrust.”

Many contractors have estimating, contracts and closeout departments, but David E. Harvey Builders Inc. operates with a strategy where project managers do it all for the client. “What that does is provide clients with a single point of contact,” Project Manager Russell Niemann says.

That person stays with the client from the conceptual stage of their project to the final closeout. “We have a lot of repeat clients who claim that’s important to them,” he says.

The company has brought that approach to Market Square Tower, a 42-story luxury apartment tower in downtown Houston. “It’s a great project,” Niemann says, noting that the building will feature 463 living units and many amenities for tenants.

North American Properties (NAP) is certainly no stranger to the city of Tallahassee, Fla. The company has invested more than $150 million in large-scale, mixed-use developments in that city since 2012; specifically, in the Gaines Street District.  With its latest project, “The Lumberyard,” NAP hopes to build on its legacy of creating provocative urban spaces.

For the city of Tallahassee, the Gaines Street District remains extremely vital. In addition to serving as a conduit to the downtown business district and the state Capitol building, it connects two of Tallahassee’s universities: Florida A&M and Florida State University. Both of those universities have seen similar trends regarding the lifestyle choices of their students.
