Director, Housing Development

Website Edgemoor Infrastructure & Real Estate

Edgemoor Infrastructure & Real Estate is an award-winning developer of public buildings and infrastructure. Our mission is to craft customized public-private partnerships (P3s) and real estate solutions that address our clients’ needs and exceed their expectations. We enable our clients to thrive through creative real estate and infrastructure solutions, while making a meaningful impact on our communities.

With more than 20 years of experience and $4.6 billion in development projects either delivered or currently under construction, Edgemoor has been a pioneer in the social infrastructure P3 space in the U.S. We create value for clients by taking a “hands on” approach to management and development that’s both flexible and responsive. Edgemoor can provide a comprehensive set of turnkey development and operation services and be flexible on financing structures. These capabilities allow us to meet the complex and varying set of needs of any client.

Edgemoor has built out a differentiated approach to developing workforce housing as an alternative to traditional paths. Housing is a significant priority for institutional, public, and non-profit clients; so, we worked to develop a unique solution. We are working with hospitals, governmental entities, and higher education institutions to deploy this innovative approach, which is more beneficial to these institutions and the essential workers in the area. Over the last 24 months, we helped establish three new independent non-profit entities whose missions are to provide housing to essential employees in the healthcare and education industries. With an independent Board of Directors, these nonprofits are striving to make an attainable, quality home possible for the millions of essential workers that are priced out of living in the communities they serve.

As a Director with Edgemoor, you will have the opportunity to scale our housing effort and develop projects across the US that help address the housing crisis.  Your role includes business development, project development, leasing/property management oversight, and asset management for Edgemoor on behalf of the nonprofit ownership entities. You are also able to leverage our affiliation with Clark Construction whose expertise features housing projects of all sizes and levels of complexity — from affordable to market rate, from stick-built to high-rise, and leverage our strategic partner, Align Capital Solutions, which has helped craft innovative financing solutions for workforce housing.

With our growth ambition and the need in the marketplace, we are looking to selectively add a key member to the leadership of the Edgemoor team who will help us continue to take advantage of the housing opportunity ahead of us.
