In its third year, 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. 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.
