What We Do

We’re changing the way you think about affordable housing, one brick at a time.

We started LDG because we believe, quite simply, that everybody deserves a quality place to live.

With over 20 years building affordable housing developments, we’ve seen that the benefits go so much further and deeper than any one individual.

Quality homes for people that help their communities thrive.

The communities may vary, but the results remain consistent:

  • check

    We nurture economic growth by providing quality homes for the families, students, and workers that help a community thrive.

  • check

    Children do better in school. Mental health issues go down. People can focus on what really matters instead of just trying to survive.

  • check

    Many of the factors that create future crime, drug problems, and violence are actually eliminated.

Ready to support your community with a gorgeous new development?

Our properties support your community long after they’re built.

We never build and just walk away.

Instead, we screen potential residents and keep on top of maintenance so that each building is as beautiful 30 years down the line as it is the day it was built.

Our local property managers have a direct line to LDG’s leadership to help solve any issues they may be facing.

We collaborate with city leaders, financial partners, neighborhood organizations, local businesses, and housing agencies to make sure that each property is part of a thriving ecosystem that gives back to the community for years to come.

We provide residents with extra support:

•   Flu vaccinations

•   Computer courses

•   Financial planning seminars

•   Tutoring in school subjects

•   After-school activities for children

Why? Because, quite simply, we’re in this for the people.

Could your community benefit by establishing an affordable housing property?

Every community is different, but some truths remain the same.

Looking to the future

We’re always thinking about creating a better world for our kids. We use eco-friendly building materials and energy-efficient appliances for a greener tomorrow.

Developing careers

Our residents are the hard-working backbone of your community. Teachers, veterans, social workers, and retail professionals are the people we create homes for.

Inspiring education

Behavioral studies show children perform better at school when they have a safe and comfortable home to return to each night.

More than just housing

We build communities and foster relationships with social activities. Our residents enjoy movie nights, pool parties, and chili suppers on the regular.

LDG Development focuses on energetic cities in neighborhoods where there is a growing need for affordable housing. The apartment communities we build thrive because we pick locations within walking distance of schools, parks, shopping centers, and nearby city transportation.

Every one of our projects is a long-term real estate deal for us. We believe apartment homes built with superior, sustainable products will yield a far greater return. Simply put, investing up front is money well spent.
