About HallKeen Management
HallKeen is a diversified real estate company based in Norwood, Massachusetts. Our prime focus is the acquisition, development and management of affordable, conventional, and mixed income housing; we also provide a broad range of commercial management services to our clients and the properties we own. HallKeen’s management skills are at the core of our business.
In early 1991 three leading Boston area real estate professionals, Mr. John Hall, the late Mr. Robert Kuehn and Mr. Denison Hall formed a joint venture to acquire McNeil Management Inc., a company with over 20 years of experience managing affordable housing. HallKeen built upon the McNeil base in the 1990’s and has now established a strong reputation for effectively managing and responsibly owning affordable housing and commercial real estate.
Both the owners of the properties the company manages and the regulators who oversee the company's work agree that HallKeen Management has demonstrated an outstanding ability to deliver traditional property management services. These services include, among others, site management, preventive maintenance, rent collection, lease enforcement, compliance, financial management, and marketing services. In addition, we pride ourselves in understanding the physical needs of the properties we manage and provide plans and oversight to improve our properties.
HallKeen’s acquisition and development focus has covered a broad spectrum of affordable housing in New England, ranging from the fee purchase of Class B market rate properties, to inner City Section 8 properties, and to developing mixed income housing from the ground up. Our particular expertise has been to utilize current financing and tax credit programs to stabilize and revitalize individual properties and neighborhoods. HallKeen emphasizes that our properties are an integral part of a larger community - the neighborhood, town or city. As a result, we seek to play a leadership role in the communities where we work.
HallKeen’s current portfolio approximately 9,000 units of multi family residential housing in over 109 partnerships, over 400 units of assisted living residences in seven partnerships, and approximately one million square feet of commercial space, inclusive of light industrial, office and biotech laboratory space. HallKeen has a strong presence throughout New England, New York, Virginia, North Carolina, Maryland and Florida. While retaining prime focus on affordable housing, HallKeen manages a diverse portfolio of residential housing, commercial properties and assisted living communities.
