WEBINAR: Leading with Vision: The Method not the Magic
Join Enterprise Community Partners, Inc. and the Rudy Bruner Award for Urban Excellence for an exploration of the process of creating transformative urban development in America.

Have you ever looked at a high-impact community project and wondered “how’d they do that”? In this 90-minute webinar we will explore the process of creating transformative urban development including the essential role of leadership and vision. We’ll consider the value of a compelling vision, the process for creating one in collaboration with the community, and its impact on the project’s design and development.

OVERVIEW: We’ll begin our exploration with presentation and examination of case studies of award-winning projects and in-depth discussions with visionary developers who have succeeded in spite of long odds to create breakthrough developments. Then, participants will apply what they’ve learned with an interactive, in-class exercise that will provide a template for future work.

The workshop will draw upon the extensive resources and lessons learned from the Rudy Bruner Award for Urban Excellence’s more than 30-year investigation into urban design and development and the Enterprise Community Partners, Inc.’s Design Matters Tool Kit and Project Mission Writer, as well as insights from two Baltimore-based development companies changing the narrative of development in their city:

* Seawall Development Company, the community driven real estate developer behind Miller’s Court (2015 Rudy Bruner Award Gold Medalist), the redevelopment of an abandoned tin can factory into housing for schoolteachers and offices for education-related nonprofits, and the $40 million redevelopment of Lexington Market in Baltimore.
* Parity Homes, an equitable development company that is bringing a home-ownership project to West Baltimore in formerly abandoned row houses, and is pursuing the project through a unique historical equity lens with a focus on avoiding displacement and deeply engaging residents.
