National Real Estate Investor: Earning & Leveraging Community Support

Tags : 

The president of AC client RIDC recently imparted his insight on earning and leveraging community support for new development projects in an article for National Real Estate Investor.

“Navigating the public approval process for large-scale, transformational real estate projects can be challenging for developers, especially with community residents, community organizations and governmental entities making different, sometimes conflicting requests, which may or may not actually be in the community’s best interests or be viable economically. Moving through this process effectively can mean the difference between a successful property that becomes a great community asset and an ambitious plan on paper that never gets off the ground.”

In the Steel City, Rebirth Is an Industry Unto Itself

Could Pittsburgh offer a model? In the resurgent Pennsylvania city — where Google employs 500 at the renovated Bakery Square complex in the East Liberty/Larimore area and where Siemens is among the major employers — the historical currents of the energy industry still flow as strong as the Allegheny. And more people claim Germany ancestry than any other.

This week the region welcomed the opening of Siemens’ new $32-million, 300,000-sq.-ft. Pittsburgh Service Center (PSC) in Mount Pleasant, on a site being redeveloped by Regional Industrial Corporation of Southwestern Pennsylvania (RIDC) in partnership with the Westmoreland County Industrial Development Corporation.

“Siemens is one of our region’s great business assets, helping to fuel economic development and growth of the Westmoreland community,” said Donald Smith Jr., president of RIDC. “By developing programs with WCCC – which is also an anchor presence on this campus – Siemens is demonstrating the value the Advanced Technology Center can provide to employers while building a highly skilled local workforce.”
