BOSTON, November 3, 2011 – Prince Lobel Tye LLP, in conjunction with Suffolk Construction, was a proud sponsor of “Cocktails & Conversation with Urban Space Transformers,” a recent event presented by NAIOP Massachusetts. Prince Lobel attorney and Boston City Councilor Michael P. Ross moderated a panel discussion that included industry leaders who described how they transformed various Boston neighborhoods into vibrant, destination locations for both residents and visitors from around the world. The evening’s panel included:
- Bryan Koop, senior vice president and regional manager of the Boston office of Boston Properties. Bryan and his company transformed the Prudential Center into a mecca of shopping,
restaurants, and hotels where 60,000 people pass through every day.
- Steve Samuels, founder, Samuels & Associates. Steve is the principal developer who transformed the West Fenway area from parking lots and gas stations into one of the most exciting
neighborhoods in which to live and play.
- Barbara Lynch, chef and owner, Barbara Lynch Gruppo. Barbara is an entrepreneur who has the vision to transform neighborhoods and make them the “next best thing” by opening some of the most popular restaurants in Boston, including No. 9 Park, B&G Oysters, The Butcher Shop, Sportello, and Drink.
