April 14, 2017, New York, NY - Brown University Alumni in Real Estate (BREG) and Brown Students in Real Estate were treated to an incredible private tour of the most talked about real estate development project in the world. Charlotte Matthews '99, Related Companies' Vice President of Sustainability at Hudson Yards, put together an informative presentation, describing the ambitious 28 acre, $20 billion development on Manhattan's west side. Upon completion, the project will contain approximately 17 million square feet of residential and commercial space, with 4000 apartments, 100 shops, 14 acres of park, an incredible indoor/outdoor cultural space, a school and a hotel. Thanks to Charlotte's efforts, cutting edge sustainability practices are being deployed, with many of the buildings receiving Gold and Platinum LEED status. The presentation was followed by a walking tour of the site and an elevated view from the High Line.
In addition to the being an excellent opportunity to learn more about this practical exercise in place-making, the event was equally successful in bringing together members of the Brown University Alumni in Real Estate and current Brown Students in Real Estate. The two groups are embarking on a new mentorship program.

Thanks to all that attended this sold out event, and a special thanks to Charlotte Matthews for putting it all together, and Kwame Campbell and the BREG Steering Committee for organizing this fun and informative event.
