At HPD, Mr. Enderlin was instrumental to the historic levels of affordable housing production achieved under the Housing New York plan. Among other initiatives, Mr. Enderlin and his team secured the preservation of major affordable housing portfolios like Stuyvesant Town and Riverton Houses, expanded programs to support mixed-income and mixed-use projects, and developed new financing for the housing of seniors and the formerly homeless.
