About Us

Omni New York LLC ("ONY") is a real estate development company that was founded by Maurice "Mo" Vaughn and Eugene Schneur for the purpose of bringing revitalization and development to various neighborhoods in New York and other states.

ONY focuses not only on the real estate aspect of revitalization and development, but also on the social aspect of the revitalization of the neighborhood by partnering with community and neighborhood groups to provide social services to the community, such as after school programs for children as well as skill building seminars and classes for adults. On the real estate development side, ONY is providing quality, well managed affordable housing in neighborhoods that have historically had a shortage of such affordable housing.

Since December 2004, ONY has acquired and has either rehabilitated or is in the process of rehabilitating 7,125 units of affordable housing in New York state. ONY has also completed the construction of 41 new units of affordable housing in Seneca County, New York and 176 new units are currently under construction in Bronx, NY.

Latest News

Outside of New York State, through ONY's affiliate Omni America LLC, the company has purchased and rehabilitated 94 units of affordable housing in Gillette, Wyoming, and 558 units of affordable housing in Massachusetts.

Going Green

Since 2007, ONY and Omni America have rehabilitated their properties in an energy-efficient manner by enrolling its projects in the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) Multifamily Performance Program, the National Grid Low Income Gas Efficiency Program, the Weatherization Assistance Program, the Con Edison Multifamily Energy Efficiency Program, the Enterprise Green Communities Program, the Bay State Partners in Energy Program, and the NSTAR Electric Residential Multifamily Assessment Program. By meeting, and often times exceeding these program standards ONY has created 19 energy efficient properties comprising over 3,400 units. Typical upgrades include replacement of old, inefficient boilers with high efficiency (98%) condensing boilers and indirect water heaters; installation of energy efficient lighting; replacing elevator motors with efficient models; upgrading refrigerators with energy star models; installing low-e argon filled windows; installing low-flow showerheads and sink aerators; and adding energy management systems. Additionally ONY is converting the heating systems at two properties from electric to gas, which will create a more energy efficient and comfortable environment for tenants in over 500 units. ONY is also working to reduce its use of fossil fuels by using renewable energy created by solar panels located on the roofs of three properties. By undertaking these measures, ONY has seized the opportunity to reduce greenhouse emissions while at the same time reducing energy costs, and thereby providing quality affordable housing that is also energy efficient.
