M.J. “Jay” Brodie, FAIA has been a leader in the real estate and development field for more than 40 years, beginning in 1969 with the Baltimore City Department of Housing and Community Development where he molded much of the character and image of the Inner Harbor and surrounding areas.  As Executive Director (1984-1993) of the Pennsylvania Avenue Development Corporation, a federal corporation established by Congress to revitalize a 21-block, 110-acre area between the White House and the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., Brodie oversaw the near completion of the nation’s most prestigious urban redevelopment project using $150 million public funds to attract $1.5 billion in private investment. From 1996 until his retirement in 2012, Brodie served as President of the Baltimore Development Corporation (BDC).  Under his leadership, BDC’s efforts retained or attracted an estimated 62,672 jobs in 1,087 businesses and/or projects, resulting in a capital investment in rehabilitation or new construction exceeding $3.4 billion.
