Construction at Civic Hall at Union Square is almost complete and it’s deeply fulfilling to finally be turning a great vision into reality. Civic Hall at Union Square is one of the most innovative and remarkable spaces. But it’s not just the space itself; it’s the ecosystem being created inside this remarkable space that is going to change lives.
When I look at the space at Civic Hall at Union Square, I see it through the eyes of all the people whose opportunities expand exponentially because it has so many of the ingredients that we often talk about—but leave out—of a holistic approach. It’s not as though we must think hard or make up reasons why some people don’t succeed. We know most of the reasons people don’t succeed. And a lot of it can be summed up in the word opportunity—broadly defined.
In other words, individuals need a holistic opportunity to get past the hurdles they face. Civic Hall is not just an extraordinary physical space, but a unique place where we will break down barriers to opportunity for talented individuals who want to get ahead.
