Our Company

What We Do

OneWall Communities® is a vertically integrated real estate company that focuses on transit and lifestyle-oriented workforce housing in the Northeast U.S. Our growing footprint in the region is a result of a constant drive to positively impact our residents, communities, and investors. We are fueled by an entrepreneurial spirit that challenges us to continuously find innovative and sustainable solutions in order to create worry-free environments. Simply put, we strive to create great communities.
The name “OneWall” comes from the address of our first deal, Chenango Place, located at 1 Wall Street.
How We Got Our Name

Where We Got Our Start

In 2009, Ron, Nate and Andy (OneWall’s partners) met and recognized that each brought a specific, yet complementary set of skills and perspectives to the table. For the next few years the company was opportunistic in its approach, starting with its first development, Chenango Place, a student housing project in Binghamton, NY that is still part of our portfolio today. Shortly thereafter, we identified specific opportunities in the Senior Living market and were able to turn an asset within 16 months of acquiring it. In 2012 we pivoted to multi-family housing and formulated a strategy that has successfully guided our investments to this day. We’ve been continuously growing and evolving ever since.
