Gorman & Co. | Oregon
Following his early career representing developers and real estate syndicators as an attorney, Gary Gorman founded his own firm in 1984 to develop multifamily real estate projects. Two years into his business, in response to the passage of the Tax Reform Act, Gorman began specializing in developing affordable multifamily rental units through the Section 42 housing program. Gorman & Co. was one of the first in the nation to develop Section 42 low-income housing tax credit developments in the U.S.
Having completed more than 5,000 affordable apartment units nationwide, Gorman consistently ranks among the top affordable housing developers in the country. In 2021 alone, the company started more than 1,000 units and completed more than 280 units. In addition to affordable housing, the firm also specializes in developing workforce housing and converting historical buildings into multifamily housing. With its corporate headquarters located in Oregon, Wisconsin, Gorman also has offices in Phoenix, Orlando and Denver.
Earlier this year, Gary Gorman gave $1 million to endow a new faculty position to lead a new graduate track in affordable housing and sustainable development through the Department of Real Estate at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, his alma mater.
