Housing and Land Development

Our experience includes re-organization of a defunct Wayne County Housing Authority. We helped it obtain financing for its first elderly housing project and several others. Subsequently, we assisted the Monroe County Housing Authority in a similar fashion, conducting a Comprehensive Housing Needs Assessment for the County and initiating several new projects, securing additional housing units in the process. The Needs Assessment was a major project used, also, by other County agencies in developing housing initiatives.

Privately, Shepstone Management Company has conducted market research for several of the Northeast’s largest residential developers.  The firm also prepared the in-depth market study used to secure HUD funding for an expansion at The Fountains, a life-care project located in Pennsauken, New Jersey. Comparable work was done in connection with various nursing home and assisted living projects. The firm has represented developers before municipalities in several instances, including a large subdivision in Palmyra Township, a senior housing project in Westfall Township and a planned residential development in Delaware Township, all in Pike County, Pennsylvania.
