Newcastle Housing Ventures, LLC


Some our recent project include the following:

Hartford Developments

While Newcastle works throughout Connecticut and parts of New England it has always maintained a focus on Hartford.  Among the developments in which Newcastle has assisted clients are Earle Street Net Zero Energy Homes, the Hollander Foundation Center (410 Asylum Street), Hartford Grandfamily Housing (Barbour, Capen & Clarks Streets) and Rice Heights (Flatbush Avenue).

Large Scale State/Federal Revitalization Experience

Newcastle has served as financing consultant to Charter Oak Communities (COC) (Stamford Housing Authority) in connection with all phases to date of the Vidal Court Moderate Rental Revitalization effort.  To date two off-site phases (Westwood & Palmer Square) have been completed and Newcastle helped to secure Low-Income Housing Tax Credits from CHFA for the third phase (Greenfield), which is partially on-site.

Newcastle also served as financing consultant to COC in connection with the Fairfield Court HOPE VI (the predecessor to Choice Neighborhoods) Revitalization.  The effort consisted of two off-site developments (Taylor Street -- rental and condominium ownership -- and Post House) and the Fairfield Court on-site redevelopment, which consisted of demolition and new construction.

Newcastle also served as financing consultant to the Darien Housing Authority/Arthur Anderson team in the redevelopment of Allen-O'Neill Homes, a 53 unit development originally funded by the State Moderate Rental Program.  The new development will product 106 units of affordable and moderate-income housing.

Newcastle served as financing consultant to the New Canaan Housing Authority (NCHA) in the redevelopment of Mill Apartments, a 16 unit development funded under the Moderate Rental Program.  The effort entailed the demolition of the existing obsolete structures and the new construction of 40 affordable rental housing units.

 While at CHIF, Lou was part of the financial advisor team to the Stamford Housing Authority (SHA) in connection with the Southfield Village HOPE VI Revitalization (new Southwood Square).  SHA selected a developer to undertake the redevelopment while it served as HOPE VI lender and ground lessor.
