Housing is a constant need in the country. New Republic knows that sustainable communities are mixed-income communities, and providing dignified, design-forward Affordable Housing is key to a neighborhood’s success and residential appeal.
New Republic specializes in Affordable Housing with quality design that is contextually appropriate and efficient, while meeting our Clients’ design, development, and budgetary needs. Our staff is cross-trained on multiple types of housing and can bring ideas and innovations from market-rate developments to our Affordable Housing projects.
Affordable Housing developments are known for budgetary constraints and the funding process can be challenging and intense. We ease the process of making design decision for our Clients through our intimate knowledge of the Low Income Housing Tax Credit criteria (LIHTC). We anticipate project needs and provide quality wholistic design, so our Clients can focus on the application process.
We constantly strive to stay ahead of the curve on the evolving LIHTC processes in Ohio and nationwide and actively adapt to changes. We make it our business to understand the updated requirements as well as the reasoning behind them. New Republic has been the design architect or LIHTC consultant for ten projects that have received Ohio Housing Finance Agency (OHFA) LIHTC awards over the last five+ years. We have built a working relationship with OHFA architects and we know the OHFA design standards inside and out.
