MAESTRO                            RESUME

Formed in 2003, Maestro Community Development Corporation has stamped its footing as the development subsidiary of the City of Long Branch Housing Authority.  After initially overseeing a $137 Million Hope VI Redevelopment Project including four (4) phases of 289 mixed income and market rate units, Maestro then took on a role as a partner and co-developer in the last four phases of the project.  

These completed projects included accepting a $170,000 COAH allocation for affordable housing in Phase I at Garfield Court from the Applied Development Company; building 68 mixed income units at Garfield Court Phase II with a $15 million 2009 NJHMFA Tax Credit Award, as well as the development of eight (8) homeownership units and the construction oversight of the $3 million, 13,000 square foot Adam “Bucky” James Community Center.

Maestro is currently negotiating two Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) acquisitions for mixed finance conversion of a troubled public housing authority, a partner in a redevelopment application to manage Section 3 and community outreach and a co-developer on two projects under construction, the redevelopment of Woodrow Wilson Homes and the Historical Rehabilitation of the Former Gregory School.

·         Woodrow Wilson Homes is a 174 family unit, three (3) phase project, which received  NJHMFA tax credit awards in 2011, 2012 and 2013, totaling $47 million.

·         The Former Gregory School is 117 senior unit, two (2) phase project, which received  NJHMFA tax credit awards in 2011 and 2013 totaling $27 million.

Maestro was also awarded several Federal Home Loan Bank of New York grants for each of the projects noted.
