With extensive in real estate, community development, financing, creative placemaking, and small business support, we operate as a “powerhouse CDC,”  sourcing internal deals and providing back-of-house advisory and capacity services to organizations, municipalities, philanthropies, and the healthcare industry, working to transform neighborhoods through workforce, small business incubation, and cultural programs.  

Our projects, partnerships, and programming rise to the magnitude of the existing needs and challenges, which requires disrupting legacy paradigms. Our goal is to solve for a multiple bottom-line: positive return on investment, high sustainability practices, and tangible, long-term benefits to the community that create jobs, stimulate the economy and enhance cultural vitality. We call this approach Community Benefits by Design.
