Join ULI for an open discussion with Tom Murphy and hear how his successes as Pittsburgh's Mayor are applicable right here in Central Virginia. Tom Murphy will address creating a local environment which stimulates entrepreneurial development, including through Public Private Partnerships.
As three term mayor of Pittsburgh, he initiated a public/private partnership strategy that leveraged Carnegie Mellon University's academic presence to create regional economic development in technology fields and more than $4.5 billion in economic development in the city. Murphy led efforts to secure and oversee $1 billion in funding for the development of two professional sports facilities, and a new convention center that is the largest certified green building in the United States. He developed strategic partnerships to transform more than 1,000 acres of blighted, abandoned industrial properties into new commercial, residential, retail, and public uses, and he oversaw the development of more than 25 miles of new riverfront trails and parks.
His extensive experience in urban revitalization—what drives investment, what ensures long-lasting commitment—has been a key addition to the senior resident fellows' areas of expertise. Murphy also serves on the Advisory Board of ULI's Rose Center for Public Leadership in Land Use.
