CREATING EXTRAORDINARY HOMES, BUILDING STRONG COMMUNITIES
 
At Domus we have spent more than a decade creating and preserving affordable housing and innovative infill mixed-use projects. Our triple bottom line approach ensures that we create communities that are environmentally sustainable, socially responsible, and economically viable. Our vertically-oriented team manages all aspects of development, construction, and management. With offices in the Midwest, Southwest, and West Coast, our development team has experience and expertise that is place-based and responsive.

Innovation
Each of our projects is unique; design and development decisions are made after evaluating the individual needs of each site and its surrounding neighborhood. Using this approach, we are able to create projects that not only serve the needs of our residents, but also act as a catalyst in revitalizing neighborhoods. Domus is highly skilled in complex financial layering and has a demonstrated track record of securing highly-competitive funding sources. We have expertise in utilizing ground leases, air rights, mixed-use and mixed-income properties. Learn more.

Efficiency
One key to Domus' success is that we are a small, nimble firm. Domus retains experienced in-house staff that can manage the development process from project conception through completion. We have been recruited to respond to eyesores in several jurisdictions because we can act quickly on funding opportunities.
