Episode 29 – Revitalization without gentrification? (Part 1)

Episode 29 – Revitalization without gentrification? (Part 1)

On this episode, we talk with Bianca and Derek Avery of COIR Holdings about what it means to be a responsible developer – especially at a time when many people are skeptical of the profession. We talk the difference between a "spreadsheet developer" and a "community developer," and the possibility of "revitalizing" a neighborhood without generating displacement. Then we dig into their holistic approach to sustainable community development that is focused on creating mixed-income neighborhoods.

This is part one of our interview. Part two will be available next week!
