Won’t you (not) be my neighbor? with Todd Chester

How can a project be so successful that it spurs massive area redevelopment and investment and yet creates a huge neighborhood outcry at the same time? In this episode we dissect The Yard at 7th Street, a case study on land use entitlements that includes variances, use permits, abandonments, signage, zoning interpretations and more. You’ll learn why its success is a model on how infill and adaptive use projects are cheered by the city and jeered by the neighbors. Listen to find out what can be done to manage tough cases properly and how to lose friends and influence enemies with Todd Chester of WDP Partners.
