Bill Struever: ‘the innovation economy is all about young, creative people’

Noted Baltimore-area master planner and real estate developer Bill Struever says the equation is simple: improve Baltimore's public transit and more "young people" hang around, the same people he says are necessary for the "innovation economy."

It’s simple for Bill Struever: improve Baltimore’s public transit and more “young people” hang around, the same people he says are necessary for the “innovation economy.”

Struever, principal of master planning and real estate development at Cross Street Partners, is one of several people behind the Baltimore Food Hub, the East Baltimore food-business campus Technically Baltimore reported on first in February.

In a Q&A with Baltimore Fishbowl, the pioneering urban master planner behind Struever Brothers, Eccles & Rouse (which was forced to close following the 2008 recession) talks about making Baltimore a “true transit town” and why Station North is the next “hot” neighborhood.
