Join local building owners and community leaders on September 13th at one of Stamford’s newest buildings for this year’s Change Makers Awards with The Stamford 2030 District of The Business Council of Fairfield County. This annual reception recognizes outstanding local projects and celebrates members of Stamford 2030, one of 17 districts across the nation advancing resource efficiency and strengthening the local economy. Previous awardees have included The Ashforth Company, Diamond Properties, The Landis Group, Mill River Park, New Neighborhoods, and Stamford Town Center, among others.
We are excited to announce this year’s keynote speaker will be Jonathan F.P. Rose. Founded on the premise of creating more environmentally, socially and economically resilient cities, Jonathan Rose launched Jonathan Rose Companies LLC in 1989 as a multi-disciplinary real estate development, planning, and investment firm, which creates real estate and planning models to address the challenges of the 21st century. Since 2009 JRCos has developed nearly 350,000sf in Stamford, comprised of 231 green mixed-income units, forwarding their mission to develop communities that enhance opportunity for all.
This past year Jonathan Rose published The Well-Tempered City: What Modern Science, Ancient Civilizations and Human Behavior Teach Us About the Future of Urban Life, which won the 2017 PROSE Award for Outstanding Scholarly Work by a Trade Publisher. This new book focuses on how cities can prepare for the future by aspiring to principles around resilience, equity and developing stronger connections between the natural and built environment.
The 2017 Change Makers Awards will be held at the never before seen Metro Green Terrace, the third stage and largest project (235,561sf) of the Jonathan Rose Companies award-winning Metro Green Residential development. Just completed this summer, Metro Green Terrace consists of 131 mixed-use apartment units and is built to LEED New Construction “Gold” standard.
Join us September 13th on the Metro Green Terrace rooftop deck to experience an inspirational building, visionary leaders, and extraordinary projects that set the stage for a stronger and more resilient Fairfield County.
