The Extraordinary Mixed-Use Revival of Brooklyn Navy YardThe Brooklyn Navy Yard is in the midst of transforming itself from a 20th-century ship builder to a 21st-century high-tech hub. With a $2.5 billion building plan, the development will more than quadruple its current workforce within a few years and become a creative and technology hub.
The neighborhood is rapidly developing and new, sustainability-minded companies are moving there by the day. The Green Manufacturing Center is a model for sustainable industry; Building 77 will provide a massive artisanal food hall; Steiner Studios, home to many popular movie and TV productions, is doubling its footprint; along with numerous other projects.
One of the most spectacular buildings to come to Brooklyn Navy yard is Dock 72, co-developed by Rudin Management and Boston Properties. With WeWork as an anchor, the 675,000 square foot building is revolutionizing the 21st century work environment with innovative work spaces and state-of-the-art amenities.
Dock 72 will be the first smart building to combine data from core and shell, enterprise, and employee experience into a single integrated platform, aggregating and analyzing data from nearly all of its systems including BMS, IoT sensors, access control, guest management, food and beverage, local transportation, gym, and a conference center.
THEARC, A Place of TransformationThe Town Hall Education Arts Recreation Campus (THEARC) is a critical community resource that provides District of Columbia residents in Wards 7 and 8 with access to high-quality healthcare, education, the arts, and recreational resources.

The Rise Of The Iron Horse GrillA Photo Story by Sarah Black; Featuring Chef Pierre Pryer
"The first dish I ever saw was an enchilada. I had never eaten one before...and at that point I knew that this was what I wanted to do. I would leave my dish station, go on the line and just ask guys, ‘What are you doing? What's this right here? What's this dish called? What are these called?' Before long I was able to make my own recipes, and I never washed dishes again!”
- Chef Pierre Pryer Sr., The Iron Horse Grill [since ’86]
Lost twice to fires, Iron Horse Grill is a flagship of revitalization for Jackson’s downtown community. Chef is going on his third tenure, having worked on and off there since 1986.
"We look forward to being a part of the continued growth of Downtown Jackson. Projects like the Capitol Art Lofts, Westin Hotel, and Mississippi History & Civil Rights Museum will continue to allow Chef Pierre and The Iron Horse Grill to share the great reasons Downtown Jackson is Back!"
- Andy Nesenson. General Manager, The Iron Horse Grill
Iron Horse Grill will launch an all NEW menu January 25, bringing back an ‘old favorite’ for the last 25 years- Burrito De Pollo, a fresh flour tortilla with lime sauce, stuffed with spicy chicken, tomatoes, green onion, hand rolled and topped with a light sour cream sauce and Monterrey Jack cheese.
"I was walking through the restaurant a couple of weeks ago during Sunday Brunch and they were playing the song ‘Don’t Stop Believing’ — A guest grabbed me by the arm and said 'Chef, I can start believing you’re gonna bring back the Burrito De Pollo.' And I said, 'M’aam I’m gonna do that.’

Progress PlazaThe Reinvestment Fund (TRF -- http://www.trfund.com) provided financing to support the renovation of Progress Plaza, a supermarket-anchored retail center in Philadelphia. The retail center is the nation's oldest African-American owned and operated shopping center. The center was built in 1968 by civil rights leader Rev. Leon Sullivan and had been in disrepair for more than a decade since its anchor tenant, a supermarket, moved out.
With the financing, TRF helped the owners and a new supermarket operator, renovate the center, demolish the old supermarket and construct a new one in its place. The three-phased development project also included a two-story office building and retail space. TRF financing for the project included New Markets Tax Credits and capital through the Pennsylvania Fresh Food Financing Initiative (FFFI).
Azalea PlazaThe impact of Genesis LA’s investments are experienced by a range of community members. We continue to measure these impacts and seek feedback from the community in a variety of ways, including short video interviews as part of our SPOTLIGHT SERIES.
In this SPOTLIGHT SERIES, Genesis LA follows up with a resident of South LA who shops at Azalea Plaza in South Gate. Genesis LA financed Azalea Plaza in 2012-13 through our GCIF loan fund and our New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) program. The Azalea Plaza was designed and constructed with significant public input and support, and has created hundreds of local jobs, provides much needed retail and community space, and generates over $2.5 million dollars in sale tax revenue for the City of South Gate, which supports other local services in the community.
Please follow our social media accounts for more updates on our work.
Resurgent RemingtonHelping to turn an entire neighborhood for the better, the NMTC program and the effect it can have is on display in Remington, a northern Baltimore neighborhood. Encouraging investment and supporting one project to help stabilize a neighborhood, NMTC was utilized to rejuvenate Miller’s Court, an unused and derelict building into a center for nonprofits such as Wide Angle Youth Media. Since, more investments have been made into housing, community-focused retail and more.

Artspace Solar Gardens (Salt Lake City) This unique $5.9 million dollar, 35,000 square foot project in Salt Lake includes 30 one- and two-bedroom residential units along with 10,000 square feet of commercial space. It is anticipated to be the first net-zero multi-family building in Utah with on-site solar production.
The solar array produces 312-kilowatts from 334 rooftop solar panels and 525 solar panels on an adjacent surface parking structure. This will reduce the building's footprint along with reducing costs for its low- and moderate-income tenants.
The reclaimed site was previously a metal scrapyard and recycling facility. This project will provide an opportunity to educate the public about renewable energy while demonstrating how a mixed-use, high-performance building can be powered by on-site solar energy.
Artspace Solar Gardens includes other sustainable elements such as highly-efficient building insulation, recycled materials, low VOC paints and finishes, and energy- and water-saving features. The HVAC system is a Mitsubishi City multi-variable refrigerant flow system that was selected for its efficiency and ability to be powered by solar PV panels. The project has direct access to a bike path and local mass transit, further encouraging a greener, healthier lifestyle.
The project was designed by MJSA Architects and built Pentalon Construction.
