Housing Visions develops, constructs, and manages real estate projects that revitalize communities. Specializing in complex financial structures and accessing diverse financing, we have successfully built and rehabilitated hundreds of buildings that include historic properties, adaptive reuse, urban infill, and new construction. Housing Visions serves diverse neighborhoods and residents including affordable workforce housing, special populations such as Veterans, survivors of domestic violence, and people in need of accessible housing.
Over 25 years ago, our modest start in revitalizing a neighborhood on the east side of Syracuse, NY, started a journey of discovery and growth. A taskforce of dedicated citizens focused on making a positive change in the Greater East Genesee Street Neighborhood in Syracuse proved to be a catalyst for positive and lasting changes. Shortly thereafter Housing Visions Unlimited, Inc. formally incorporated as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit to improve the quality of housing and quality of life, and to implement its model for revitalizing neighborhoods. Housing Visions Unlimited is a Neighborhood Preservation Company (NPC) and Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO). Other neighborhoods soon took notice of the quality of work and the neighborhood change that was occurring on the east side of Syracuse, NY and thus expansion into other neighborhoods followed. HVU now has over 1,600 units and developments in 16 communities throughout the Northeast.
