A LEADER IN CREATING COMMUNITIES

SECTION 3 BUSINESS CONCERNS

In an effort to foster local economic development,

neighborhood economic improvement, and individual

self-sufficiency, KBK Enterprises instituted a Section 3

initiative for residents. Section 3 requires that recipients

of certain HUD financial assistance, to the greatest

extent possible, provide job training, employment,

and contract opportunities for low or very low income

residents in connection with projects and activities in

their neighborhoods. Resident inclusion has allowed

KBK Enterprises to achieve record breaking success

in the redevelopment of Garfield Commons, Skyline

Terrace and Marrero Commons. Garfield Commons

was recognized by former Mayor Luke Ravenstahl for

having the highest Section 3 participation in Pittsburgh,

PA. Per former HUD Secretary, Shaun Donavan,

Marrero Commons served as the model for the nation

with hiring over 160 Section 3 workers. Skyline Terrace

completed the first phase of its redevelopment with

the participation of 67 Section 3 employees, which

was the largest Section 3 participation in Pittsburgh.

Unity Resource Center—Columbus, OH

This 43,000 square foot class “A” commercial

office facility was originally financed with a 501 (c)

3 tax exempt bond and was later refinanced with

a conventional real estate commercial loan. This

building was 100% occupied by Franklin County

Department of Job and Family Services Northeast

Opportunity Center and served as a job training

site. It housed case workers, a child care center,

meeting rooms, a cafeteria with vending machines,

and offices. This project was completed

February 1998.

14


Unity Health & Wellness Center—Columbus, OH

KBK developed, owned, leased and managed this

building prior to selling it in 2004. This 54,000

square foot commercial medical office building

was financed with a conventional real estate commercial

loan. This was a multi-tenant building and

was primarily occupied by medical providers including

Ohio Health, the largest adult provider

of healthcare in Columbus, Children’s Hospital,

the largest pediatric provider of healthcare in Columbus,

Columbus Neighborhood Health Center,

the largest public provider of healthcare in

(CNHC) and various private physicians. We also

housed tenants such as Wells Fargo, American

Express Financial Advisors and other professional

service providers. This project was completed

March 2001.

15


The Ferlo Building

(Larimer Pointe Resident Center)

A building that was once a former meat market

now serves as the new office space for community

supportive services under the KBK Foundation.

Formerly the Fiore Meats Building, it is now

known as the Ferlo Building named after former

PA Senator Jim Ferlo. The space is approximately

1,500 square feet and is one of Larimer’s oldest

remaining buildings. It is the most notable representation

of Larimer Avenues’ connection to

its Italian Heritage. The entire first floor has been

renovated to include a waiting/reception area,

kitchenette, and a conference room while the

second floor contains open office space for four

staff members. The former Fiore Meats Building

was purchased from the URA and put back into

circulation with the help of KBK.

The Heritage—Columbus, OH

The Heritage (f.k.a. Agler Green) is a 384 unit project

based Section 8 development on 35 acres.

The once crime riddled development known as

“Uzi Alley” has 100% occupancy. The Heritage at

the time it opened for leasing in 2003 had 1000

applicants and a two year waiting list. It continues

to be a marquee development in Columbus,

OH. Part of the attraction is the size of the units,

which are very large for a project based Section 8

property. The Heritage was the largest affordable

housing development in the State of Ohio for

two years and the largest single project in Ohio

Capital Corporation for Housing’s (OCCH) equity

investment portfolio. This property was featured

in Affordable Housing Finance magazine for its

creative finance structure and was recognized by

HUD for having completed the first IRP Decoupling

through OMHAR in the country. The property

features a community center, five playgrounds

and basketball courts. Residents have been able

to participate in numerous activities sponsored by

The KBK Foundation, the community supportive

services entity of KBK Enterprises. The total project

cost for this development was $26 million.

Garfield Commons—Pittsburgh, PA

KBK Enterprises was selected as the developer to

rebuild the Garfield Heights public housing community

where over 325 units existed. We have

worked to complete this 225 unit mixed income

development in four phases on time and on budget

with no change orders. While each phase has

been relatively small, KBK was awarded Low Income

Housing Tax Credits for all four phases consecutively

and has been successful in completing

each phase within a year. We were able to develop

this multi-phased project now re-named Garfield

to the community and its overall architectural

and market relevance. This project achieved high

“green” standards established by the Pennsylvania

Housing Finance Agency, employed a record

number of Section 3 employees, hired a record

number of MBE/WBE contractors, and provided a

training site for the local Youth Build program. We

engaged the community by working with the former

resident council, Garfield Jubilee, Bloomfield

Garfield Corporation, the local National Association

of Minority Contractors (NAMC) and the African

American Chamber of Commerce of Western

Pennsylvania along with the community. The total

project cost for this development was over $100

after the passing of Keith B. Key’s longtime friend

who lived on Fern Street.

MARRERO COMMONS, NEW ORLEANS, LA

After Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans

in 2005, President & CEO of KBK Enterprises,

Keith Key headed down south to help the National

Baptist Convention, the largest African American

religious group in the country for which he

was a board member of its housing corporation.

While helping out he came into contact with the

BW Cooper Resident Management Corporation

(RMC). That group and KBK Enterprises decided

to form a relationship so they could find a way to

redevelop the Katrina ravaged BW Cooper Community,

formerly know as the Calliope Projects.

Two years later KBK was selected as the developer

for the revitalization and redevelopment of

BW Cooper, now renamed, Marrero Commons

after staunch, resident advocate Yvonne Marrero.

BW Cooper was the largest public housing

community in the state with over 1500 units on

56-acres near the New Orleans Superdome that

was redeveloped into a mixed income community

that includes affordable, public and market rate

housing. The total project cost was $250 Million.

This community was home to several influential

and notable people including the Neville Brothers,

rapper Master P, doctor Harold Sylvester, and

musicians Willie Tee and Henry Buttler, along with

singer, Lloyd. Phase 1 was $150 million consisting

of 250 units, with Phase 2 at 160 units. Marrero

Commons Phase 1 was completed in 2013 and

Phase 2 in 2015.

Skyline terrace-pittsburgh, pa

KBK was selected as developer of Skyline Terrace

(f.k.a. Addison Terrace), a former public housing

community, situated in the center of Pittsburgh’s

Historic Hill District. The redeveloped Skyline is

on approximately 65-acres and was formerly comprised

of 734 barrack-style row houses. With most

of the units dating back to the 1940’s the plan was

to replace the units with a 400-unit townhome,

mixed-income development. This would include

market rate and subsidized housing. The new

housing would be constructed over the next six

years in phases that would take place on the former

Addison Terrace and off-site locations. The

award for Skyline Terrace is the largest award to a

minority enterprise in the history of Pittsburgh, at

approximately $160 million, surpassing KBK Enterprises

previous largest project award, Garfield

Commons at $100 million. The first phase of Skyline

Terrace was over $90 million and was completed

in 2015.

36


SKYLINE TERRACE-HISTORICAL RELEVANCE

May 14, 2015 marked the official opening of Skyline

Terrace during a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony.

Development partner Keith B. Key had a personal

stake in creating the new community along with

The Housing Authority of the City of Pittsburgh.

He held up one of the old Addison building number

signs 2071 Bentley Drive, the address of the

home where his father once lived. This was a special

day for everyone involved, especially for Mr.

Key who was born over on Chauncey Drive and

grew up on Somers Drive, both in the Hill District.

He commented, “I’ll never forget where I’m

from.” Mr. Key was especially proud of the work

the residents did in pushing him, the city, and everyone

involved to be better, and in employing

minority businesses and hiring residents to work

on the project. Everyone praised the cooperation

between the city, county, state and federal agencies,

the developers, and the residents who made

the project possible. The event also allowed the

Housing Authority and Mr. Key to showcase the

community’s state-of-the-art community center.

The center was named for the former Tenant

Council President Ella Mae Hillman who, as several

speakers mentioned, made sure the promises

to the residents about amenities, access, services,

and right to return were kept.

rate units with one, two, and three bedrooms

This new community will also include a 2,530

sq. ft. resident center that includes a computer

lab and management office. The Kelly Hamilton

team actively engaged with locals of Pittsburgh

who qualify as low and very-low income individuals

to create Section 3 opportunities. The KBK

Foundation succeeded in meeting or exceeding

the Housing Authority’s Section 3 and M/WBE

goals for the project by approximately 26 percent.

Homewood has long experienced the impact of

prolonged decline and disinvestment. Recently,

community groups in Homewood have constructed

a development plan that involves dissecting

the neighborhood into “clusters”. Each “cluster”

is intended to serve a directed purpose (i.e. housing,

business district/retail improvement, greenspace)

to improve the neighborhood. KBK Enterprises

is excited to see and be a part of the future

of Homewood.

KBK Enterprises was awarded the opportunity

to work with the City of Compton in the development

of mixed income-mixed-use communities

for the 501/601 Block of E. Compton Blvd.,

1117 S. Long Beach Blvd., and 413 N. Alameda

St. These developments will include nearly 500

units of residential housing, commercial space for

retail use and underground parking. The City of

Compton is known as the “Hub City” because of

its unique position in almost the exact geographical

center of Los Angeles County. Compton is

strategically located along the Alameda Corridor,

a passageway of 25 percent of all U.S. waterborne

international trade. Compton is rapidly emerging

as a large industrial center in Los Angeles County

for transit and distribution, business services, high

technology, home and lifestyle products, metals,

financial services, and textile manufacturing.
