  • Holiday Gift & Crafting Party to benefit the Carolina Hill Shelter

    Holiday Gift & Crafting Party to benefit the Carolina Hill Shelter

    On December 11th, more than 50 CREW Boston members participated in the Holiday Gift and Craft Party to benefit Carolina Hill Shelter.  CREW members purchased gifts for 17 families residing at Carolina Hill, who without CREW’s assistance would not have received gifts this holiday season. Additionally, CREW members generously donated gift cards at the November 27th luncheon which were distributed to the Moms and Dads at the shelter.  CREW members also crafted hand-made ornaments for the families.  New leggings and sweatpants were collected to help the Shelter cloth future residents who often arrive with only the clothes they are wearing. The outpouring of CREW’s generosity was overwhelming and truly appreciated by Carolina Hill.  The Holiday Gift and Craft Party, hosted by the Community Involvement Committee, also provided a great networking opportunity to socialize with other CREW members, as well as enjoy pizza and wine.

  • Boston Landing – Transforming a Neighborhood from Stockyards to Live, Work and Play

    Boston Landing – Transforming a Neighborhood from Stockyards to Live, Work and Play

    On November 27th at the Hyatt Regency Boston, the audience heard from Erin Harvey of NB Development Group and David Manfredi of Elkus Manfredi Architects discuss the latest on Boston Landing.  A development that has created a neighborhood and reconnected Allston and Brighton back to Boston. They went over the several buildings starting with the HQ.  This whole vision was started by Jim Davis, Owner and Chairman of New Balance and began to accelerate in 2011. The new headquarters of New Balance was inspired by one of New Balance’s manufacturing mill buildings in Lowell.  With open space, full of daylight and reducing the number of floors, it was a gamechanger for the company.  Also including a flagship retail center at ground level.

  • Discussion on Stabilization & Redevelopment of Hurricane-Devastated Puerto Rico

    Discussion on Stabilization & Redevelopment of Hurricane-Devastated Puerto Rico

    To kick off our 2018-2019 series of brown bag lunches, the CREW Boston Housing and Community Development Committee, led by members Kimberly Martin-Epstein and Yanel de Angel discussed recovery efforts related to the devastating hurricanes in Puerto Rico.  We were able to conference in Alex Blenkinsopp from Senator Elizabeth Warren’s office. He gave an overview of the PR situation and Senator Warren's efforts to provide aid, including a bill proposed to offer $146 billion dollars in aid to Puerto Rico. While not progressing legislatively, this bill changed the tenor of the conversation in Washington. This is the first time a US territory in economic crisis has concurrently been hit by a natural disaster.

  • Gateway Cities- Transforming the Suburbs

    Gateway Cities- Transforming the Suburbs

    The 26 Gateway Cities in Massachusetts were formerly home to prosperous industries that offered residents a "gateway" to the American Dream. As jobs moved elsewhere and resources remained hard to come by, these midsize urban centers faced a number of challenges in maintaining their prosperity. Mass Housing has a longstanding commitment to the revitalization of Massachusetts' Gateway Cities and have committed both resources and grant money towards development. At our October luncheon, we took the conversation outside of Boston, to hear from city leadership about the real estate and development investment going on in some of the Commonwealth’s designated Gateway Cities

  • Climate Ready Cities – Transforming Real Estate

    Climate Ready Cities – Transforming Real Estate

    CREW Boston hosted a panel of climate change experts and thinkers on how they are helping improve the city of Boston’s waterfront. Ellen Watts of Architerra started by reflecting on the most important real estate in the world, the Earth’s atmosphere. She shared how we need to use historical data, ideas from other countries, and how we should be thinking differently moving forward. It’s about not retreating from our cities due to the ever changing climate and increase in storms but to reinvent our cities and to better protect our cities and the environment. Additionally we heard from our panelist; Kathy Abbott from Boston Harbor Now, Kirk Bosma from Woods Hole Group and Sam Sleiman from Massport.
