The New York City Housing Partnership has tapped Daniel Marks Cohen, founder and member of New York-based investment firm Burlingham Capital Partners, to head its real estate development division.

Cohen will serve as director of real estate development for the Housing Partnership, which serves as an intermediary between the city and developers to develop new affordable housing. In the new role, Cohen will be responsible for overseeing the Partnership’s pipeline of existing and prospective real estate business, while directing the development of affordable housing and financing for private developers.

“He also will underwrite all affordable housing transactions, coordinate and interface with local agencies and private developers and supervise project managers,” Dan Martin, chairman and CEO of the NYC Housing Partnership, said in a release.

Prior to launching Burlingham, Cohen served as a mortgage officer at the Community Preservation Corporation, which offers construction and financing to housing owners and developers. — Julie Strickland
