In 2006, Donald and Thibault Manekin founded Seawall Development, a Baltimore-based firm focused on redeveloping historic buildings into mixed use projects. Now, a decade into Seawall's multiple efforts, the father and son team will share their story during the next Lessons from Legends talk, hosted by the University of Baltimore's Merrick School of Business on Thursday, March 30 beginning at 6 p.m. in UB's Wright Theater, located in the UB Student Center, 21 W. Mt. Royal Ave. The talk is free and open to the public; attendance details are listed below.
The Manekins' mission was to develop attractive, affordable housing for teachers and cost effective, efficient and collaborative office space for non-profit organizations. Two of their projects in Baltimore City are the highly acclaimed Miller's Court and Union Mill in the Remington and Hamden neighborhoods.
Seawall also rehabilitated homes in Remington and many were purchased by teachers wanting to make Baltimore their home, especially those in the Miller's Court apartments. To date, the company has completed or is pursuing development of more than $200 million of creative adaptive reuse projects in Baltimore and Philadelphia.
With more than five decades of combined experience, Donald and Thibault Manekin have brought their passion and wisdom for urban revitalization to life with Seawall. Seawall's projects, focused on social good, have won numerous awards, including President Obama's Champion of Change Award, Community Impact Awards, recognition through NAIOP, and Green Housing Awards through ULI to name a few.
An online R.S.V.P. is requested for this event.
