the milano development story
Milano Development was founded by current president Joseph S. Milano in 1972. From the first houses back in those early years, to our latest subdivision, quality has always been the basic ingredient in a Milano-built home. Through the years, Milano Development has built over 300 homes along the Connecticut shoreline. Mr. Milano has also maintained an active presence in the local home building community, serving as president of the New Haven county chapter of the National Association of Home Builders, in addition to being named New Haven County Builder of the Year.

Adhering to these same high standards, Milano Development has also built 34 commercial/industrial buildings in Guilford and Madison, encompassing over a quarter million square feet. These buildings, leased and managed by Milano Development, encompass all aspects of the real estate market: retail, industrial, office, residential, & self-storage.

In recent years, Mr. Milano has been joined in the family business by his son David and his daughter Jennifer. David handles the commercial leasing and management while Jennifer spends most of her time on legal and advertising issues. In addition, David and Jennifer have formed a real estate brokerage, Milano Real Estate LLC, to handle the sales of the latest Milano-built homes.
