MBL About Us
MBL Development Co. was incorporated in 1991. Throughout our 29 years in the affordable housing development business, we have successfully constructed 27 communities. Currently MBL is looking to develop in Missouri, Iowa and Kansas. All of our complexes were built within the timelines proposed and were leased quickly with above average occupancy rates. Our existing developments are well kept and well managed, most with long waiting lists.
MBL Development Co. is proud to have constructed our communities within very reasonable cost levels. We request the least amount of tax credits necessary to build our properties, in order to maximize the tax credit program.
Our current endeavor is to continue to construct affordable senior and multi-family housing developments in Missouri, Iowa and Kansas. We will also follow Green Building principles for environmental and safety measures for our residents. Our properties include Supportive Services that will enhance the well-being of our residents so they can remain independent for as long as possible.
