It matters who develops

our neighborhoods.

Conscious Development occurs when developers start with the communities 

they serve.

We are an equity and community building,

community & partnership centric,  

re-skilling and people-focused development

We focus on people first

Our approach to development starts and ends with people.

 

We bridge the communication and development gap between the community and the developer, forming partnerships to develop communities focused on inclusivity and tangible equitable growth, starting with local residents.

We invest in the places we develop

We’re motivated by building communities that reinvest in themselves and aim to be a bridge to developing equity and opportunity.

 

We are a viable resource for the communities we develop, as well as consulting and partnering with major & private industries to liaise and link with the surrounding communities while increasing financial resources, job growth,  educational & trade opportunities.

We build with purpose

Building a community where local residents can live and work, have access to wealth building resources, and have an equitable stake in their cities and towns - it’s not easy, but we’re here to make it happen.We understand the needs of affordable housing, because we’ve lived it!

Affordable housing does NOT

have to be synonymous

with Poverty.

Most developers that have developed affordable housing never had to  live in it...

This unique lens gives us the experience to know what communities require to be sustainable and thrive. 

Community Advocacy + Platform

Talking to people who live in our community and amplifying their voices is core to our work. We use community voices as a blueprint to what’s really important
