John Altorelli, US Finance co-chair at DLA Piper, was recognized last week by Urban Justice Center with their Community Service Award for his work with the Knightsbridge redevelopment project. DLA Piper and Urban Justice Center represented the Kingsbridge Armory Redevelopment Alliance (KARA) during its negotiations of a Co-operation Agreement and Community Benefits Program with KNIC Partners, the developer that will redevelop the Armory into the world’s largest indoor ice sports venue. The agreements ensure the economic benefits created through the redevelopment are redistributed throughout the local community. The policies will result in the creation of green jobs, implementation of green building practices, establishment of living wages for local workers, development of a 50,000 s/f community space, and a concentration on promoting local businesses. John worked his colleague Sean Harrigan on the project.
