WHAT I DO

ABOUT

I bring historic properties back to life as a real estate developer. I help other developers and investors realize their own projects by providing design & construction, financial, and marketing consulting. Through both of these endeavors, I hope to make the places around me more beautiful, more livable and more accessible for all.

Investing in tomorrow.

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATIONS

I uncover redevelopment opportunities in historic downtowns in New Jersey, near transportation, universities and hospitals. These areas demonstrate favorable long-term supply and demand dynamics.

  • Hoboken, NJ

  • Jersey City, NJ

  • NEWARK, NJ

Unbeatable location and market disparities that offer opportunity.

I focus on redeveloping historic properties, particularly multifamily and mixed-use. I look for architecturally significant townhouses, apartment buildings and commercial buildings built before the 1950s, with deferred maintenance, subpar operations, poor renovations and under-built zoning envelopes. Total transaction sizes range from $2.0 to $4.0M. My business plan is simple but effective - renovate, repurpose, extend and restore properties with development timelines of 1 year and hold periods of 5 years. I take advantage of valuable tax programs, including Opportunity Zones, Urban Enterprise Zones, New Market Tax Credits and Historic Tax Credits.

Small-scale, as-of-right and tax-advantaged strategy.

WHO I AM

FOUNDER

My name is Atif Z. Qadir and I am a licensed architect with 13 years of development, construction and architecture experience from top New York City firms, including Extell Development, Turner Construction and Gwathmey Siegel Kaufman & Associates Architects. I am an alumnus of MIT's School of Architecture and Planning and of Columbia Business School. I am active in the local community as a City Planning Commissioner in Hoboken, New Jersey and as a board member for non-profits in New Jersey and New York.

I assemble locally-based, highly-skilled teams for each project, including innovative consultants who can maximize a historic building's potential, lenders who specialize in redevelopment opportunities and investors who believe that attractive financial returns and community building can go hand-in-hand. Amanat means "held in trust" in the Urdu language and that is how I see each of my projects.

An experienced team with local roots.
