A Master of Urban Renaissance

Hosted by Carla Harris
With Hope Knight, Head of the Greater Jamaica Development Corp.

Hope Knight, head of the Greater Jamaica Development Corp., talks about how to turn dream development projects in blighted neighborhoods into reality.

Urban development projects revive communities by bringing an influx of new jobs to areas in need, supporting crucial infrastructure projects and establishing a sense of community. But these remarkable developments take years to get off the ground and face significant logistical hurdles. Is there a solution to overcoming the perceived costs and risks of taking on such projects?

In this episode of Access & Opportunity, Carla Harris talks with Hope Knight, President & CEO of the Greater Jamaica Development Corporation about how strategic partnerships can turn dream urban development projects into reality. Strategic partnerships bring public, private and nonprofit organizations together to promote change and diminish the burdens traditionally associated with such projects. Hope walks us through the key steps of a successful strategic partnership in an urban and economic development project and shows us how they help communities, investors and entrepreneurs alike.
