Tuesday, April 26 2022 6:00 PM 8:00 PM EST

Another installment of the Philadelphia Citizen’s speaker series, powered by Drexel University’s Lindy Institute for Urban Innovation and Fitler Club, on—literally—building a better, more inclusive, and prosperous Philadelphia. 

Join us for a conversation about the ways big projects are reshaping our city today, including reimagining the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, redesigning the waterfront at Penn’s Landing, and transforming the Philadelphia Navy Yard. Panel inspired by the spring 2022 edition of AIA's Context magazine. Speakers include:

  • Diana Lind, vice president, Community & Culture at the Chamber of Commerce for Greater Philadelphia and a board member of the Philadelphia Citizen
  • Gregory Reaves, founder and co-owner of Mosaic Development Partners, LLC  
  • Julie Donofrio, managing director at PennPraxis

The panel will be moderated by Martha Cross, deputy director of the Division of Planning and Zoning within City of Philadelphia’s Department of Planning and Development and emceed by David Brownlee, architectural historian and professor of the History of Art Emeritus at the University of Pennsylvania.

REAL ESTATE DEVELOPMENT … FOR GOOD: For decades, real-estate developers have had an outsized effect on the trajectory of growth in Philadelphia. And now a new generation of visionaries, deal-makers and builders are following suit, driven by the merging of social impact and bottom-line imperatives. The Philadelphia Citizen’s Development … For Good is a year-long speaker series that smartly delves into the economic and cultural difference that enlightened and intentional real estate development can make in our city.
