ABOUT KDF

HISTORY

KDF Communities, LLC is a real estate development and investment company based in Newport Beach, CA that was founded in 1996. Since that time, KDF has emerged as one of the largest developers and owners of affordable housing communities in California. KDF has been involved in the construction, acquisition, and rehabilitation of more than 6,000 affordable rental units in over 50 properties throughout California, Washington, and Colorado.

NEW OPPORTUNITIES

KDF plans to aggressively expand outside the state of California, in pursuit of both market-rate and affordable housing opportunities. All new acquisitions will keep KDF’s core investment values in mind. This includes purchasing properties in primary and secondary markets with positive population and employment growth at prices well below replacement cost. The properties will typically be one of the “low-cost providers” in their immediate submarket. Our investment strategy is designed to provide superior risk-adjusted returns over Class A and B market-rate properties and has been proven effective over a 20+ year holding period for the portfolio. Refer to the “New Acquisitions” page for sample investments purchased in 2020.

OUR COMMUNITIES

SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

Two ways KDF achieves balance for its stakeholders

The lack of affordable housing is a significant hardship for low-income households, preventing them from meeting basic needs, such as nutrition, healthcare, or saving for their future. Since 1996 KDF Communities has been an innovator in developing successful affordable multifamily and senior housing solutions upon three important performance criteria: social, environmental, and financial. We strive to achieve balance between these on behalf of all stakeholders.
