About The Olson Company
For The Olson Company, housing is more than a business; it’s our mission. The Company was founded in 1988 to assist cities in solving the critical shortage of affordable housing in urban areas. Today, an increasing number of professionals and families are returning to live in the city, taking advantage of the urban lifestyle, convenience and proximity to jobs and transportation. Each Olson community starts with a simple question. How can we give homeowners the best quality of life possible? The answer starts with where we build. Committed to seeing the potential of the urban landscape, we re-entitle, rezone, and develop underutilized parcels, building energy-efficient homes that are close to jobs, key transportation links, and numerous recreational and entertainment options. Since most of our communities are in mature neighborhoods, they require minimal infrastructure, helping to keep construction costs low, taxes reasonable, and home prices attainable. Each Olson community name includes the word “walk” because our vision is for homeowners to be able to exit their front door and walk to shopping, restaurants, cafes, and schools, engaging with their neighbors and becoming part of the fabric of their cities. We are passionate about our pursuit of providing transit-oriented housing, mixed-use/live-work, artists lofts, brownstones, and neighborhood small lot detached developments. Our commitment is to improve the local neighborhood experience by capturing the best that exists in each neighborhood socially and architecturally.
