"BNT's mission is to LEAD, EMPOWER and CHANGE Bridgeport neighborhoods, improving quality of life through Real Estate Development opportunities. To meet this challenge, BNT develops and manages Real Estate Development, creates Build BNT with a focus on lead remediation and provides comprehensive homeownership education for low and moderate income families."

Transforming Neighborhoods

At BNT, it's no coincidence that trust is our last name. In fact, it's the principle behind every project that we do. We bring nearly a quarter of a century of experience and an impressive tally of results: including 100 new Real Estate Development units, 800 lead-safe apartments, and 1,007 families who achieved the American dream with BNT's help.
