Not only did Ali innovate and was the first to build live/work lofts for low and very-low income artists and artisans using tax-exempt bonds and LIHTC in Oakland, but, two of his affordable projects prevailed CEQA challenges each at California Supreme Court and California Court of Appeals, and were later constructed. Ali’s depth of experience as a leader in both the private and the non-profit sectors brings a unique set of skills, resources, relationships and values that are well-matched with the Bay Area and the challenging development environment it presents. Ali’s market-rate projects have consistently provided very attractive returns to his investors despite the set-backs of the Great Recession of 2008.
