Job Description

In December 2018, Mayor de Blasio and New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) released NYCHA 2.0, a comprehensive plan to fix and preserve public housing. NYCHA’s Real Estate Development Department (REDD) is charged with leading and structuring real estate transactions that will address over $15 billion in capital needs. REDD will utilize the following three tools to generate the necessary revenue:

  1. Permanent Affordability Commitment Together (PACT) – PACT will use U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Section 8 programs to fund renovations and convert public housing (Section 9) apartments to permanently affordable housing. NYCHA plans to convert 62,000 apartments over 10 years, which will address $12.8 billion of capital needs.
  2. Build to Preserve (BTP) – New mixed-income buildings will be constructed on some underutilized spaces across the NYCHA portfolio. NYCHA expects to address $2 billion in capital need across approximately 10,000 apartments.
  3. Transfer to Preserve (TTP) – NYCHA will sell a portion of its estimated 80 million square feet of unused development rights (“air rights”) to adjacent privately-owned sites. TTP will generate $1 billion for capital repairs at adjacent developments.

Under the direction of the Vice President for Real Estate Transactions, the Project Manager will assist with the financial modeling and analysis of housing development projects on property owned by NYCHA, preservation projects to rehabilitate and preserve NYCHA-owned public housing, and other NYCHA Real Estate Development activities. In addition to playing an important role in executing NYCHA 2.0, the Project Manager will also work on projects under NYCHA’s 100% Affordable Housing Program. The program aims to build 10,000 units of affordable housing on underused NYCHA-owned land. The Project Manager will be responsible for projects associated with these programs as well as other departmental initiatives.

The Project Manager will work on a team with technical knowledge related to real estate development, public housing, architecture, planning, and urban design. The Project Manager will work on multiple projects crucial to implementing NYCHA 2.0. The key responsibilities for this position include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Administer multiple real estate transactions.
  • Provide financial analysis and modeling for new construction and preservation projects.
  • Review and evaluate due diligence materials as it relates to project financing, including ground leases, loan documents and appraisals.
  • Identify and analyze potential funding sources.
  • Underwrite mortgage or sponsor loans for new construction and preservation projects.
  • Assist NYCHA legal department in preparing contract and closing documents.
  • Coordinate financial closings with internal and external parties, including developers, City and State agencies, lenders, and bond underwriters.
  • Represent NYCHA in meetings with inter-agency representatives, development partners, lenders, and residents.
  • Draft requests for proposals.
  • Work closely with colleagues from NYC, NY State, and Federal agencies involved in the development of affordable housing.
  • Make presentation to residents, elected officials and community members.
  • In the temporary absence of supervisor, may assume the duties of that position.
  • Perform other tasks related to housing development finance.
