Silver Street Development Corp (SSDC) is dedicated to the preservation, successful operation and growth of affordable housing. SSDC formed TSSG asset management team to ensure the efficient and effective management and preservation of the Partners’ holdings.

For over ten years, Silver Street has focused on the implementation of green buildings and energy efficiency measures. TSSG commissioned energy audits for a large portion of its portfolio to help determine improvements that would provide a quick return on investment. A local mechanical contractor was brought in to assist with locating weatherization program funding and implementing energy saving measures. Those efforts continue to the present time.

TSSG, as part of the Better Buildings Program, has expanded on its previous accomplishments and set a goal to reduce our energy consumption by an additional 20% over the next decade. Efforts will include installing a cogeneration system and replacing boilers to generate some additional hot water and electricity at one of our elderly apartment complexes in Lynn, Massachusetts. TSSG recently completed two heat conversions from oil to natural gas at two of our affordable family sites, one in Maine and the other in Massachusetts. Meeting the Better Buildings Challenge is in sight.
