Seward Park Mixed-Use Development will transform more than six acres of underutilized land and transform them into a vibrant mixed-use development. Miriam Harris will speak about this and other projects. 

Update – Miriam cancelled briefly to accommodate a mayoral press event…which was then cancelled…so we are back on! Come join us for what promises to be a great conversation with fantastic networking!

As co-chair of the New York ICSC Alliance Committee, I am pleased to announce a conversation with Miriam Harris, Senior Vice President of Real Estate Transactions at the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYEDC). NYEDC is New York City’s lead agency for public-private real estate development projects in all five boroughs of the City. As Senior Vice President at EDC, Ms. Harris has a keen understanding of what it takes to successfully partner with the City to bring a project from concept to completion. She is currently responsible for over 25 active projects including the 62 acre Willets Point Project in Queens, the 1.5 million square foot Seward Park mixed-use project on the lower east side of Manhattan and the 2 million square foot Cornell-Tech campus on Roosevelt Island.

The breakfast event will be held at ICSC Global Headquarters, 1221 Avenue of the Americas on Sept. 19th. Pre-registration is required to ensure you do not have problems with security. Seating is also limited, so please register ASAP. Registration fees: Members, $20; Non-Members, $35. Click here to register.

The ICSC Alliance Program is a program of the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC), the international trade association for the commercial retail estate industry. Alliance Programs are wonderful opportunities to network, share experiences and exchange ideas with commercial real estate professionals from both the private and public sectors. Needless to say…bring business cards!
