Reflecting on the ULI Philadelphia Awards

As an attendee of the ULI Philadelphia Willard G. “Bill” Rouse III Awards for Excellence earlier this month, I was privileged to sit among the builders and creators of this beautiful city. As Inga Saffron claimed in the ceremony’s welcome remarks – Philadelphia has some unique features that have helped maintain the liveliness of this city.  Some noteworthy points included the value of Center City’s healthy mix of uses, inviting sidewalk retail, and the decline of parking garages -leaving room for innovative solutions in how to reuse this space.  Inga … Read More

Young Leader Council Members Volunteer with Philabundance

Seven Philadelphia Young Leaders got together on June 12th for a fun evening of meat-sorting for a good cause at the Philabundance hunger relief warehouse.  They worked together to frantically pack 30 pound boxes of frozen poultry, pork, and even quail off a fast-moving conveyor built, packing 9,000 pounds in all! Special thanks to Philabundance for hosting as well as Giant for their generous donation of all the food being packed. Brian Simel, Director of Development, Cross Properties and Young Leader Council Member.

As the selected city, Toronto was proud to welcome our group of curious Young Leaders to tour us around the most multicultural city in the world – that’s right, more diverse than New York City. Did you know? Tours and Speakers: The host city for these exchanges are put together by the other Young Leader … Read More
