About us
TNS Development Group Ltd. ("TNS") and Great American Construction Corp. ("Great American") are experienced developers and builders in the New York City metropolitan area. TNS and Great American have successfully rehabilitated or built nearly 3,000 multi-family dwelling units in the New York City metropolitan area representing over $260,000,000 in construction costs.

Through our development arm, TNS, we purchase, provide equity, secure financing, plan and design, obtain municipal approvals, and market a variety of residential and commercial real estate developments. 
Great American, our construction arm, acts as the general contractor for our own and others new construction and rehabilitation projects.

We boast an impressive record of successful residential and commercial real estate development and construction projects throughout New York City, Westchester County and Long Island. We continue to expand our expertise and enhance our position throughout the metropolitan area. We are constantly on the lookout for new development and construction opportunities.

TNS and Great American were incorporated in 1989 and 1990, respectively.  Since such time, TNS and Great American have been major participants in the new construction and rehabilitation of multi-family affordable income rental properties throughout New York City. To date, TNS and Great American have completed the development of properties involving in excess of $450,000,000 of total development costs.

TNS' and Great American's projects include buildings acquired and developed through private means and public programs. We have developed properties through the NYC Department of Housing Preservation and Development's (HPD) Vacant Building Program, HomeWorks Program, Third Party Transfer (TPT), New Foundations Program, and Cornerstone Program. We continue to own in excess of 1,000 dwelling units of housing that we developed.

TNS and Great American have developed projects ourselves and have formed joint ventures to develop properties with partners in the housing market.  Under the Cornerstone Program of HPD and the New Housing Opportunities Program (NHOP) of HDC, we co-developed two sites along West 117th Street and Frederick Douglass Boulevard in Harlem.  The project involved the new construction of an eight-story, 128,000 square foot building containing 116 units of rental housing and nearly 12,000 square feet of ground floor retail space.  Total development costs for the project were approximately $30,000,000. 

In addition to affordable housing developments in New York City, we have successfully developed, constructed and sold over 100 single-family and attached townhouse dwellings in Long Island and Westchester County.  We developed, constructed, and sold "Hamilton Parc", a 29-unit, six-story new construction condominium project located at 504 West 136th Street in Harlem.  In 2009, we completed the development and construction of a 60 unit mixed use project in the Bronx that consists of a five-story building with in excess of 10,000 square feet of new retail space.  In 2010, Great American completed construction of a 10-story, 38 unit luxury condominium in Brooklyn as well as a 6-story mixed use project in the Longwood section of the Bronx that consists of 25 affordable rental units and 7,500 square feet of retail space. In early 2011, Great American completed the construction on a 12-story, 76 unit luxury apartment building in Harlem and a new six-story, 60 unit residential building in the Bronx. 
Our companies recently completed the development and construction of a luxury 14-story new construction co-op project in Brooklyn that is providing 83 new dwelling units, 49 underground parking spots, and an 8,000 square foot multi-purpose facility containing a full length basketball court, classrooms and office space.  Great American also recently completed the moderate rehabiltation of four buildings containing 173 residential units in the Bronx.  In July 2011, our companies began the construction on an 8-story mixed use project in the Bronx consisting of 59 affordable rental units with 13 parking spaces with 12,000 square feet of retail space.  This development, which will turn a NYS Brownfield site into new affordable housing for New York City residents, is expected to be complete in mid-2013.  In April 2013, the companies were recognized with the NYC Big Apple Brownfield Award for Innovation by the NYC Big Apple Borwnfield partnership for this project.

TNS' and Great American's projects have long been recognized for their commitment to community redevelopment, excellence in construction, and conservation of historical architectural design.  Great American received the Excellence in Historic Preservation award from The Preservation League of New York State for its rehabilitation of the C. Reiger's Sons Factory, a nearly century old abandoned factory in the South Bronx, into affordable income family rental housing.  Our Central Harlem rehabilitation project, located at 38 - 44 West 129th Street, received the Award of Merit: Rehabilitation Project from the "New York Construction News" in its Best of Award competition. Two of our other apartment building rehabilitation projects received Awards of Merit from the Queens County Builders and Contractors Association for excellence in design and construction.

We are always seeking new opportunities and projects. For further information on our companies or to discuss development or construction opportunities, please contact us at (718) 715-7150 or
