Telesis Corporation plans, finances and creates urban communities that are livable, beautiful, civil, and safe. We bring together many strong partners: community residents and civic leadership; businesses and banks; public agencies and private financing investors to achieve large scale urban regeneration.

Founded in 1985, we have financed, developed, or planned over $2.8 billion in more than 25 neighborhood transformations around the country with over 17,000 units of housing and a diversity of commercial and civic uses. Telesis CDE has financed over $120 million in New Market Tax Credits investments.

Telesis believes that physical and community development are inseparable. Our work reflects and encompasses the values of civil engagement, education, health, housing, green living, cultural leadership, and democracy. We develop and manage comprehensive revitalization, from affordable home ownership opportunities to mixed-income rental opportunities; from world-class architecture to world-class landscape design; from learning centers to employment centers; from community policing to community daycare. 

Telesis is a certified “B Corp”. B Corps are for-profit companies certified to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency who use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems.

Cities have always been the place of innovation and vivid civic experience. At Telesis, our goal is to preserve and enhance urban life by strengthening the essence of cities: their neighborhoods. We are a team of creative professionals motivated by the commitment to build strong communities as a bedrock of civilized cities.
