Still Leasing

I’ve been writing and talking a lot lately about our (i) advisory & place-making projects and (ii) new gigs outside of Cambridge, MA.  And while we indeed continue to expand our reach beyond brokerage services and outside of Cambridge, MA, we’re still as dug in as ever in good ol’ Cambridge, Massachusetts and hustling like usual on […]

Yeah, Watertown

We’ve been spending a lot of time of late in Watertown, MA.  Yeah, Watertown. When I first met with the fine folks from athenahealth earlier this year in Watertown I was told all about their vision for transforming their global HQ at The Arsenal (a 29-acre historic site they recently bought from Harvard University) into a […]

Coffee & Cafe folks, FYI

I just sent this email out to some of my pals in the BOS/Cambridge/Somerville coffee & cafe scene. Figured I’d post up here too. Both opportunities are great. And both opportunities, though very small, are the sort of projects that make us tick here at GSP.   Yo coffee/cafe friends. Sorry for mass email – I prob […]

Introducing…

Something really big and important happened for us in February – Gustavo Quiroga joined the GSP team.  I’m psyched; really psyched. For the past seven years it’s been just Dave and me.  It’s been an amazing experience to work this closely with one colleague for this long. And pretty much every project and deal we’ve […]

2013 Goodness

First of all, happy 2014.  I can say that since it’s still January, right? Last few months have been busy.  Really busy.  But we are working on some great projects and starting to feel out some new territory outside of Boston/Cambridge.  2014 will bring gigs in Somerville, NYC, Philly and Raleigh.  Yeah, Raleigh.  2014 is […]

“urban cheerleader”

Last month I sat down with Paul McMorrow of CommonWealth Magazine to talk place-making, Kendall Square, Graffito SP, etc.  The article, the bulk of which is an edited transcript of our convo, ran in CommonWealth’s Fall 2013 issue.  Link below.  Here are a few of my favorite soundbites, which no doubt shed light on the […]

Exploring. Newark.

I recently reconnected with an college buddy who I hadn’t seen in 10+ years until a few weeks ago.  He – David – works at Brick City Development Corp, which is Newark’s economic development arm (see: http://bcdcnewark.org). Given my work with GSP and his work at BCDC we had much to chat about and he invited […]

Ingredients. Five of them.

I just watched a video titled “Hackney Revival” that is currently available for viewing at Monocle Magazine’s online Film section (link at end of this post).  The video details a visit to “a small thoroughfare in east London’s Hackney, to get a read on the ingredients that underpin a community.”  It’s a good watch and […]

Exploring. With Fenway Friends.

GSP just started a new project with the fine folks at Samuels & Associates, who are doing some exciting and transformative stuff in Boston’s Fenway neighborhood (see: http://thefenway.com/). On one of our first days together I took the team over to a few of my favorite Cambridge and Somerville neighborhoods to do some exploring.  Simple goal being […]

In & Back Again (NYC > BOS > NYC)

Woke up this morning at 5:30am.  Train from Penn Station at 6:20am.  Got into Boston (late) at 10:40am for a 12:00pm pitch to an existing client with a big new project. Three hours later and I’m now back on the train headed home to NYC.  Not the way I usually roll but wife and I […]
