Empire Housing & Development Corp.

We foster community revitalization in the City of Syracuse and around New York State.

Empire Housing and Development possesses a proven track record as both a developer and a consultant.

This experience is valuable to other not-for-profits, private developers, builders and communities that have critical needs but do not have either the available staff or the expertise necessary to complete a particular project. Depending on the project, Empire is capable of providing consulting services or addressing specific development needs.
