Dakota Partners, Inc. is a Massachusetts-based real estate developer and builder involved in the acquisition and development of multi-family rental communities and for-sale projects in both urban and suburban areas throughout New England and New York. With a unique expertise in delivering high-quality workforce and affordable housing, we develop projects from the ground up as well as acquire and reposition existing real estate. Our substantial experience with state and federal programs enables us to undertake complex real estate transactions that utilize low income housing tax credits (LIHTC), historic tax credits, community development block grants, and Housing and Urban Development programs.

Dakota and its team have successfully acquired or completed over 100 residential projects, including a number of garden-style affordable housing developments in Massachusetts and Connecticut, the conversion of an historic New Hampshire mill into loft-style apartments, and several projects involving the adaptive reuse of historic urban buildings in Hartford and Waterbury, Connecticut. At the core of every project is Dakota’s mission to improve the lives of the people who live in our communities. We do this by integrating a high level of design with green building technologies and traditional craftsmanship to create vibrant and desirable projects. In addition, partnering with neighborhood groups and public officials ensures the success of our projects for all stakeholders in the community.
