Real estate projects that demonstrate high-quality design and engagement with the arts are being developed all around Philadelphia. As the region continues to recover from the pandemic, Philadelphia is doubling down on art and design to engage residents, attract tourists, and stimulate economic development.

Join us as we explore the intersection of design and real estate, examining how the value-add of art goes beyond beauty to incorporate economic recovery and social connection into our region. Hear from our panel who will discuss how innovative collaborations can help Philadelphia’s creative community thrive.
