TCG is a full-service real estate planning, consulting, financial advisory and development services firm with specialized expertise in affordable housing and urban revitalization program planning and execution. We are active across the nation, transforming distressed neighborhoods into attractive, affordable communities of choice. Our clients often include public housing authorities, local development authorities, cities and counties, tenant associations, HUD, and private and nonprofit firms.
Our firm has the expertise to successfully implement the full range of real estate planning, finance and development activities. These include formulating housing development strategies, identifying, acquiring and master planning sites, managing architects and engineers to rezone land, developing design and construction documents, obtaining both debt and equity financing, overseeing construction and occupancy, managing legal staff to prepare organizational documents, training residents on homeownership responsibilities, training boards of directors on leadership and management and operations oversight, assisting property managers with startup and operations, and working with local governments and authorities on integrating our community revitalizations into local plans and strategies. We have a strong focus on assisting our housing authority partners to build their staff capacity to undertake ever-increasing responsibility and understanding of the process of revitalization and operation of the Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) communities. We maintain a strong emphasis on affordable homeownership, which we believe is the single most significant factor in the physical, social and economic revitalization of an area. We have provided over 33,000 low- and medium-income families the opportunity to own their homes and participate in operating and managing their communities.
We also build sustainable communities by developing, financing, and operating high-quality, affordable rental and for-sale housing, coordinating access to support services and asset-building activities, and shaping community and economic initiatives critical to the communities served.
