We are changing the face of affordable housing, one community at a time.

History + Vision

Columbia Residential was established in 1991 when we saw the necessity for quality affordable housing that fulfills the needs of our residents and also enhances the aesthetic standards of the community. In 1996, we formed Columbia Residential Management to handle the long-term, on-site management of our properties while providing our residents with remarkable service. We then created Columbia Residential Construction Services in 1997 to manage the construction of our developments and ensure that every unit is delivered with only the highest level of quality.

Columbia Residential is an integrated real estate development and management company, comprising master planning, development, project management, construction management, and property management disciplines. We search for locations that are underserved by the affordable housing industry and employ experienced vendors to bring our ideas to life with inspired, purposeful architectural design; sustainable, innovative construction; and a sincere commitment to the community, its surrounding neighborhood, and most importantly, our residents.
