Job Description:

Who are we?
The Community Builders, Inc. (TCB) is an entrepreneurial real estate developer and owner. Our mission is to build and sustain strong communities where all people can thrive. We envision a world with vibrant, safe and inclusive neighborhoods where all people live in healthy homes with equitable access to resources and opportunities to pursue their dreams, and we work to make that vision a reality. Founded in 1964, TCB currently owns/manages 12,000+ units of rental housing across the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, and Midwest.
Why work at TCB?
Opportunity is not equally available across households and regions. Quality housing in good neighborhoods with reasonable access to jobs is out of reach for many Americans. Now more than ever, TCB aims to make vital contributions that address this fundamental opportunity gap, by adding to the stock of affordable quality homes in thriving communities for all people.
The Real Estate Development Project Manager role at TCB
Are you a creative problem solver with a focus on positive outcomes? Do you enjoy working on tangible projects that make a financial and physical difference to the communities where we work? Do you bring a drive for results and a real desire to make a difference? As a Real Estate Project Manager you will lead a multi-phase comprehensive neighborhood transformation in Detroit and serve as a key point person for projects in the Detroit Metro area. You will be responsible for the day-to-day progression of all aspects of the development process, including due diligence, entitlements, regulatory approvals, financing, design, construction, and leasing, delivering quality projects on schedule and within budget. We seek candidates with the demonstrated ability to:

  • Solve problems creatively, with resourcefulness and tenacity
  • Close complex transactions that will provide quality housing for residents in need
  • Work collaboratively, maintaining rapport with both internal and external colleagues
  • Negotiate and persuade effectively
  • Set appropriate deadlines and work within them
  • Accurately identify risks and recommend strategies to avoid them
  • Work passionately to make our vision of affordable housing for all a reality
  • TCB succeeds with diverse and inclusive teams

    Community Builders, Inc. is committed to ensuring diversity in its workplace, and candidates from diverse backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply. As a mission-directed nonprofit with a longstanding focus in urban neighborhoods, TCB believes that our potential impact as a local partner, housing provider, and great neighbor, are immeasurably enhanced when staff and leadership combine technical proficiency with the abilities, perspective and insight that can only arise from true representation of the communities that we serve.
    What's in it for you - professional development
    You will build key skills as a Project Manager, with an opportunity to make a real difference as the team works through complex decisions. We look for individuals who can grow with TCB over time into more senior level development positions.
    You will work with a team of bright and dedicated individuals, whose creativity and persistence and get it done attitude make for an enriching work environment.
    Our Project Managers are involved in all phases of an affordable housing project, versus being focused on a specific aspect of a project.? Project managers are the key to driving projects to closing and achieving certificate of occupancy.
    TCB is part of a network of America's leading national nonprofit developers and owners so we learn not just from our own experience, but our peers as well. We are involved in advocacy at the federal, state, and local levels, using our experience to help shape public policy.
