NEW YORK, NY – The New York Housing Conference named Trinity Financial its 2020 Developer of the Year – recognizing the company’s community-driven approach to developing urban sites with complex infrastructure, environmental, market-based and political challenges.
The recognition was officially made during the NYHC’s 47th annual awards program, which was conducted as a remote-only event.
“Trinity Financial is a community-driven, diverse team of real estate professionals with a proven track record of developing urban sites from New York to Greater Boston,” the NYHC said in its announcement of the award. “Trinity has a reputation for delivering high-quality multifamily projects resulting in a stronger urban fabric – with a commitment to people, place, and partners. They care about the communities where they invest because they live and work there too.”
Trinity closed its first New York deal in 2013 with the Randolph Houses in Harlem. The company established a Manhattan office in 2015, and to date Trinity has underway or completed development projects totaling $661 million, with over 1,100 housing units and more than 100,000 square feet of retail, commercial, or community space in New York.
“This award means a lot, because we established our practice in New York with the goal of bringing our community focused brand of development to the city not knowing how we would be received,” said Trinity’s Managing Director Kenan Bigby. “That the New York Housing Conference has recognized what we have achieved in this short time is extremely gratifying, and we appreciate the honor deeply.”
Together with its property management division, Trinity Management, Trinity has a total of 300 employees with decades of experience in the development and management of transformative real estate projects. Commitment to diversity is also a core value for Trinity. The company is 50 percent minority-owned, with a senior staff that is 67 percent women and/or minority. Trinity’s projects consistently exceed goals for minority and women-owned business sub-contracting and workforce hiring by up to 150 percent.
