Hilary Bertsch Named to ULI Daniel Rose Faculty

Associate Principal Hilary Bertsch, AIA has been named a Faculty member for the 2011 ULI Rose Center Fellow Program. The Rose Center at ULI was created in 2008 to facilitate collaboration among leaders in land use by bringing together public and private sectors to address a specific local land-use challenge. Over the course of a year, Hilary will work closely with Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx and his team of public/private representatives—Planning Department Director Debra Campbell, Transportation Department Director Danny Pleasant, and Transportation Secretary Gene Conti—to help identify solutions to land-use challenges specific to their city and position the city on a sustainable path for economic prosperity.

With her expertise in the implementation of large-scale mixed-use developments, including waterfronts, transit centers, and urban retail complexes, Hilary will bring critical insight to the land-use challenges currently facing Charlotte’s Fellows team. Her sensitivity to existing urban contexts has resulted in re-imagined and reinvigorated communities across the country—including the dynamic, complex redevelopment effort for Buffalo Canal Side, Yonkers Downtown Waterfront, and Penn’s Landing in Philadelphia—will provide Charlotte with a replicable framework in addressing land-use issues into the future.
