Who are you?

TASG Development, LLC is a privately held real estate development company based out of Miami, Florida. TASG's core focus is to establish sustainable housing that is green and create innovative solutions to community development challenges.

How does this project impact the issue you selected?

Several factors are at play here, including the recent recession and housing crisis. However all of these factors are driving development of high cost housing. Adaptive reuse can become a popular tactic in affordable housing development, as we encourage revitalization of long-neglected areas. Once housing has been built, that drives opportunities for retail development.

What data points from The Our Miami Report does your project address?

The economic stability of Miamians is a major factor in how comfortably they can live here. Standard living costs, i.e., rents and mortgages, at 30% or more consume the largest share of a residents' income and determine their overall financial health. Cultivation of affordable housing to help ease its cost-burdened residents will go a long way toward making Miami a more affordable place to live.

Please give examples of your project's success.

Home buyers directly affected by shortage of affordable housing have been able to purchase homes reducing their standard living costs on average by 23.7% in addition to utilizing homebuyer programs as a result of our focus coordinating support among businesses, organized labor, local government, faith communities, housing advocates and concentrated public education media campaigns.
