Join this virtual discussion with the owners of Mosaic Development Partners to learn about building mixed-use communities in a post-pandemic environment. The speakers will focus on the key elements that go into creating an inclusive development that responds to a broad section of the community. Whether in the Navy Yard or on Main Street, the challenges for the future are many.

The Navy Yard is a growing community of nearly 15,000 employees and 170 employers who occupy 5.5 million square feet across a mix of property types, including office, retail, industrial, R&D and institutional, that offers community members a range of amenities including restaurants and cafes, a riverfront greenway, free shuttle access, bikeshare and over 20 acres of open green space. The Navy Yard is a collaborative community with curated food trucks, health and wellness programs, rotating public art installations by local and international artists, and hosts a variety of food, fitness, and philanthropic events in its parks. This 15-year project is being planned and developed by Mosaic and its JV partner, Ensemble Investments.
Mosaic Development Partners is a Philadelphia-based, minority-certified commercial real estate development and project management company founded in 2008 that primarily focuses on ground-up development and adaptive reuse of commercial properties in underserved urban communities. The company has successfully used viable, but complicated finance instruments (largely in the form of local, state, and federal loans and tax credits) to help stabilize and grow neighborhoods and create jobs. By partnering with municipalities, established developers, not-for-profit organizations and government entities, Mosaic has leveraged its investments and revitalized properties in struggling or stagnated communities. Since 2012, Mosaic and its partners have secured and invested more than $120 million in Philadelphia neighborhoods, resulting in hundreds of construction and full-time jobs, eliminating blight, and spurring additional investment in those communities.
