Urban Development & Community Revitalization

BWI is committed to breathing new life into the communities where we do business. Neglected neighborhoods and vacant buildings can take a toll on a community and impact families, businesses and the city.  Our team understands the perceptions of gentrification that occurs when a redevelopment project is underway.  This is why we are committed to impacting the communities we serve with a focus on revitalization and why we make a conscious effort to become engaged with the community during all phases of the construction project.

We understand that the purpose of urban renewal is to improve specific areas of a city that are poorly developed or underdeveloped, not displace those who have a long-standing history with the community. We are able to achieve our goals and positively impact the community by:

  • Utilization of tax increment financing to finance improvement projects.
  • Creating innovative strategies to work within the public and private sectors to maximize resources and minimize costs
  • Acquiring and assembling multiple properties for development or redevelopment
