HISTORY AND VISION
Columbia Residential was established in 1991 when we saw the necessity for quality affordable housing that fulfills the needs of our residents and also enhances the aesthetic standards of the community. In 1996, we formed Columbia Residential Management to handle the long-term, on-site management of our properties while providing our residents with remarkable service. We then created Columbia Residential Construction Services in 1997 to manage the construction of our developments and ensure that every unit is delivered with only the highest level of quality.
Columbia Residential is an integrated real estate development and management company, comprising master planning, development, project management, construction management, and property management disciplines. We search for locations that are underserved by the affordable housing industry and employ experienced vendors to bring our ideas to life with inspired, purposeful architectural design; sustainable, innovative construction; and a sincere commitment to the community, its surrounding neighborhood, and most importantly, our residents.
Since our inception, we have won more national awards for architectural excellence than any other affordable housing provider. We have achieved this by assembling a team of experienced, dedicated professionals who seek excellence as the standard for themselves, our projects, and our company.
Columbia Residential offers a full range of real estate investment capabilities and services. Our experience covers the entire spectrum of residential housing with a particular focus on multifamily and senior housing properties. We engage local entities such as non-profit organizations, philanthropic foundations, community development corporations, financial institutions, governmental bodies, and public housing authorities, to partner with us in our endeavors, facilitating a spirit of community support and mutual respect.
The combination of these elements allows Columbia Residential to offer the finest in residential living. Our goal is to be the first and only company that people turn to when they consider affordable housing community development and management. It’s time to change the face of affordable housing, and Columbia Residential is doing just that, one community at a time.
