Sean Reynolds joined USA Properties Fund in 2016 as a Development/Architectural Manager. He has since been elevated to Vice President of Development, leading design and planning efforts for the company’s multifamily projects, from new apartment communities to rehabilitation projects.
Mr. Reynolds, a LEED Accredited Professional with more than 20 years of experience in architecture and design, is a former senior executive with DAHLIN in Pleasanton in the San Francisco Bay Area. He began his career designing single-family homes and then moved quickly to multifamily communities as a lead designer/architect working with his team and clients to receive entitlements on small projects all the way through to projects involving specific plans and large master plan communities. Mr. Reynolds embraces the complexity, technical design side and positive community impact of apartment communities.
While at DAHLIN, Mr. Reynolds worked with USA Properties on the Santana Terrace project in Santa Clara, and the experience working with USA Properties Fund on this innovative apartment community – market-rate housing for seniors – encouraged him to look at joining the company.
He has extensive experience with multifamily community design, from entitlements through construction, and has worked on many affordable and market-rate apartment communities in California as well as the western United States.
Mr. Reynolds embraces out-of-the-box development ideas with new opportunities and groundbreaking projects that will help meet the need for more housing and solving the housing issues in California. For example, Mr. Reynolds believes embracing modular housing for some projects and transforming underperforming shopping malls into much-needed multifamily housing are possible solutions as well as looking to develop on infill sites and transit oriented developments.
