The NRP Group LLC, a Cleveland based developer, builder and property management company with regional offices in San Antonio, TX; Raleigh, NC and Phoenix, AZ has capitalized on opportunities created by the credit crisis by completing promising deals that other developers have not been able to deliver. Due to the company’s strategy and business philosophy, for three straight years The NRP Group remained a top nationally recognized affordable housing developer as designated by Affordable Housing Finance magazine. NRP was proud to be recognized as the second largest national developer ranked in the Top 50 Affordable Housing Developers in 2009.
According to the article in the April/May 2010 issue of Affordable Housing Finance, "The NRP Group in Cleveland, which has held the top developers' spot for the past three years, drops to No. 2 on the latest list, but continued its strong production activity with 1,411 affordable unit starts." Additionally, NRP gained a place over last year in Top 50 Affordable Housing owners to rank 18th nationally, up from 19 in 2009.
J. David Heller, Principal, The NRP Group, stated "We are very honored to be recognized by the Affordable Housing Magazine as the second largest developer of affordable housing in this great nation. We are excited that we have been able to provide a consistent flow of affordable housing for hard working American citizens of modest means. This could not have been accomplished without the incredible team effort of over 300 dedicated employees at The NRP Group.”
The NRP Group is exceeding growth expectations for 2010 with nearly 2,000 projected unit starts and 1,600 unit project completions nationally. In comparison, there were 1,411 unit starts in 2009 and 1,437 unit completions.
