The Historic Five Points Redevelopment

“Yes, things change – we want to bring the people in the community along as we develop.” 

Haroun Cowans, Partner & Chief Real Estate Development Officer, Five Points Development Corporation

I’ve always been curious about real estate development and cognizant of the impact of “gentrification” on a community.  After a walking tour of Five Points by Haroun, I was really impressed at how he’s approaching the redevelopment.  This interview features some great highlights of the area’s music history and iconic buildings.  You’ll also better understand how Haroun, who grew up in the area and is an Associate Pastor of a nearby church, thinks about “bringing the community along with redevelopment.”
