In this #coWebinar, hear from Alison Crowley, Senior Real Estate Officer at MIT Investment Management Company (MITIMCo), about how she manages stakeholder engagement during construction.

Duration: 30 minutes

In 2016, the MIT Investment Management Company (MITIMCo) launched a 7 to 10 year construction effort that will add 1 million square feet of new real estate in Kendall Square by transforming six parking lots into new residential, retail, and laboratory space, along with public open space. Even before they broke ground, the development team knew that the project would mean construction noise, traffic diversions, and other inconveniences for the people who live and work in Kendall.

In this #coWebinar, hear how MITIMCo is ensuring a smooth construction process by sharing information and updates directly with the community, and by capturing feedback before complaints go straight to the city. You’ll learn:

  • Tips & tricks for managing and responding to community member feedback
  • Ways to anticipate issues during construction, before they start
  • How proactive outreach helps to keep MIT’s construction projects running on time


“coUrbanize allows us to be open & transparent. It builds trust with the community and lets them know we’re paying attention.”
