Midwest Real Estate News each year selects a new class to its Midwest Commercial Real Estate Hall of Fame. And each year, we run profiles of these inductees online. Today we look at the busy career of Gordon Goldie, partner with Plante Moran in Auburn Hills, Michigan.
Gordon Goldie is one of the leaders of Plante Moran’s housing and community development solutions group. He spends 100 percent of his time assisting for-profit and not-for-profit clients with real estate development projects involving tax incentives such as historic tax credits, New Markets Tax Credits (NMTCs), brownfield redevelopment incentives and the new opportunity zones incentive.
“Community development is an extremely rewarding subset of the real estate industry,” said Goldie. “I am very proud of the positive impact of the projects that Plante Moran’s Housing and Community Development Solutions Group has assisted.”
Known nationally as a technical expert on tax credits and incentives within the accounting industry, Goldie has been instrumental in helping Plante Moran’s housing and community development solutions group close transactions involving more than $1 billion of NMTCs, historic tax credits and state tax credits.
Goldie worked with Neighborhood Service Organization with structuring and closing on the financing of the Bell Building in Detroit, which received the 2013 Timmy award from the National Housing & Rehabilitation Association for the Most Advanced Financial Structure. Also, he and his team assisted the College for Creative Studies in structuring and closing on the financing of the Argonaut Building in Detroit. That project received the 2009 Novogradac Journal of Tax Credits Real Estate QLICI of the Year Award.
Gordon has also been involved in many projects that received historic preservation awards from the Michigan Historic Preservation Network and Governor’s Awards for Historic Preservation from the State of Michigan, including 23 projects in 11 different Michigan communities that have received the Governor’s Award over the past 15 years.
A frequent lecturer, Goldie has spoken before organizations including the Opportunity Zone Expo, International Council of Shopping Centers, National Trust for Historic Preservation, the National Council of SHPOs, the State Bar of Michigan and the Michigan Historic Preservation Network.
