RPM Development: Making our communities better places to live

At RPM Development, our goal is to create high-quality affordable housing. Throughout our history this has meant developing residential communities that are affordable and serve as environments for residents and their families to thrive. Our company takes great pride in creating housing that is attractively designed, skillfully built, and well-managed. Sustainable building is one of the core values that guides our work. When affordable housing is done well, we believe that it can serve as a transformational resource for residents and a source of beauty and vibrancy for surrounding communities.

Founded in 1986, RPM is one of the leading developers of affordable housing in New Jersey. Our company has developed residential communities that are home to thousands of New Jerseyans and represent hundreds of millions of dollars in community investment across the state. Our work has included new construction on underutilized land, the adaptive reuse of industrial properties, the restoration of historic buildings, and multi-phase initiatives to increase affordable housing options in urban and suburban communities.

RPM brings all aspects of the affordable housing development process under one roof, with expertise in development, construction, leasing, and property management. We have worked with cities, suburban towns, local housing authorities, and state and federal agencies to create high-quality housing options for New Jerseyans and are experienced in combining multiple forms of financing to bring projects to fruition. Drawing on the experience of our staff and skillful partners, we have achieved these goals in the face of highly challenging circumstances, whether renovating an abandoned industrial building, bringing polluted land back into productive use, or turning around a historic neighborhood.
