Sawyer Hosts Boston Development Panel Discussion

The Suffolk University Sawyer School of Business will be hosting a panel discussion on the development of the Widett Circle area of Boston. The area, which was originally selected to house the temporary stadium for the Boston Olympics, is facing major development in the coming years. After the the bid for Boston to host the 2024 Olympics was dropped, Boston’s mayor, Martin J. Walsh, and Boston developers now plan to create a new section of Boston that will provide workforce housing and new business opportunities for the city.

The panelists will discuss what the development will mean for the area as well as the potential impact that the development will have on existing businesses in the area as far as relocation is concerned and the economic impact that the development will have on the city of Boston as a whole. Peter Howes, Business Editor at NECN will serve as the moderator for the panel discussion.

The panelists for the event will include, Richard A. Dimino, President and CEO of A Better City, Gregory Janey, President of Janey Construction Management and Consulting, Inc., Thomas O’Brien, Founding Partner and Managing Director of The HYM Investment Group, LLC, Michael P. Ross, Of Counsel, Prince Lobel and Susan Sullivan, Executive Director of Newmarket Business Association  and Newmarket Communication Partners, Inc.

The event will be held on Oct. 27, 2015 at the C. Walsh Theatre at the Suffolk University Boston campus. The event is free to attend but registration is required to reserve your seat at the event and can be completed online. The event is open to Suffolk alumni, faculty, graduate students and the general public.
