Brogan Manor is an 88 unit multi-family project which serves low, very-low and extremely low-income families. With a majority of three and four-bedroom units, it is one of the few rental properties in Auburn that targets large families. Constructed in 1975, the 18 buildings required substantial rehabilitation. In 2013 the AHA Development Corp., a non-profit affiliate of the Auburn Housing Authority, took ownership and collaborated with 3d Development to redevelop the property. The two-year construction period was designed to minimize any inconvenience to tenants. The modernization and resulting energy efficient improvements make for a healthier, safer, accessible and more affordable living environment. The property continues to be managed by the Auburn Housing Authority.

Baptist Manor, Buffalo NY
Baptist Manor is a 15-story, 126 unit multi-family project for low, very-low and extremely low-income senior citizens. Located in an historic district of Buffalo, it was important to the faith based, non-profit owner to maintain the property as affordable housing well into the future. 3d Development structured the project as a Mitchell-Lama preservation project financed by NYS Housing Finance Agency. The HUD 236 financing was decoupled to take advantage of the continuing Interest Reduction Payment. The project was approved for Project Based Rental Assistance through the second component of the HUD Rental Assistance Demonstration program. 3d Development continues to coordinate the modernization activity. Once construction is completed in late 2017, the owners will realize significant savings from energy efficiency upgrades and decreased maintenance costs. The tenants will benefit from greater accessibility, upgraded interior spaces and a healthier living environment.
