In this episode of the Advancing Communities
In this discussion, Jim is joined by Dr. Willie Logan, President and CEO of Opa-Locka Community Development Corporation, a nonprofit builder of affordable housing communities in northern Miami-Dade, FL. Last year, Opa-Locka CDC won a landmark lawsuit against HallKeen Management, a large property management company, over ownership stakes of Aswan Village Apartments in Miami. Jim and Willie discuss the Aswan Village case and the implications the litigation has for affordable housing owners across the country facing similar troubling situations. They also provide insight into how owners and developers can protect themselves and their affordable housing properties from these troubling practices.
