State of Center City:
Accelerating Growth in Philadelphia
Tuesday, April 24, 8:30 AM
The Union League
140 South Broad Street
Harold Epps, Director of Commerce, City of Philadelphia
Gerard H. Sweeney, President, Chief Executive Officer and Trustee, Brandywine Realty Trust
Paul R. Levy, Executive Director, CPDC: Release of the State of Center City report
Philadelphia is enjoying the longest period of economic expansion in the last 50 years, adding 55,100 jobs since 2010 and showing positive growth in all but one year since 2005. For a city that has been contracting since the 1950s, this is very good news. However, by national, urban standards, things should be significantly better.
Come to the release of CPDC/CCD’s annual State of Center City report and hear from a panel on how Philadelphia can adopt policies that promote job growth in all sections of the city, as well as in surrounding, slow-growth suburbs.
CPDC members are encouraged to invite both young professionals and other members of their firms to attend this meeting.
Please RSVP to Romina Gutierrez by Wednesday, April 18, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 215.440.5543.
