Milano Faculty Eric Enderlin Named President of New York City Housing Development Corporation

Eric Enderlin has a wealth of experience in housing preservation and development, having worked at the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development, the New York City Housing Authority, and the New Jersey Council on Affordable Housing.

Now he’s taking on his most important assignment of his career: recently, Enderlin, a faculty member at Milano School, was named by Mayor Bill DiBlasio to be the next president of the New York City Housing Development Corporation, the city’s housing finance arm and a major player in the mayor’s affordable housing initiative.

“I am delighted to take on this important position, and have the opportunity to build on the critical gains that have resulted in record-breaking production of affordable housing in New York City over the past two years,” said Enderlin, who teaches Housing Finance and Real Estate Development at The New School. “HDC is the financial backbone of the mayor’s plan to build and protect an ambitious 200,000 affordable homes in 10 years.”

Previously, Enderlin worked as the deputy commissioner at the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD), where he oversaw the agency’s office of development. Prior to HPD, he was assistant director for asset management and private market operations at the New York City Housing Authority, worked as a consultant with the Louis Berger Group in its economics department, and was principal planner and land use mediator with the New Jersey Council on Affordable Housing.

“Enderlin’s wealth of experience in Housing Preservation and Development will take us to new heights in affordable housing in New York City,” DiBlasio said in a statement. “I am confident that Eric will promote the progressive values of our City and work to make it a place where anyone can thrive.”
