Renaissance Downtowns USA’s (RDUSA) approach is funded through investments in Impact Real Estate Development that are made with the intent to generate measurable social and environmental impact alongside a financial return.

IMPACT DRIVEN

 

RDUSA is committed to addressing some of the most pressing issues facing the nation today. Disinvested communities, suburban sprawl, lack of housing options, unemployment and rising levels of poverty are some of America’s most urgent socio-economic challenges that our team focuses on daily through the work we do.

While conventional approaches to development have not been able to successfully deal with these challenges in the past, RDUSAs’ impact-driven real estate model has the ability to help respond to these critical needs.
