UEP Associate Professor Justin Hollander received a grant for $50,000 from the Abell Foundation on a project in partnership with the City of Baltimore and researchers at UMass Boston to study decision-making around the reuse of vacant and abandoned properties.
The project is developing novel adaptations of management science and planning principles to support the development of strategies to build local pro-environmental amenities on the sites of vacant and abandoned parcels, as well as holding select properties for future development. By focusing on effective and efficient non-residential re-use of certain abandoned, vacant or underused properties in Baltimore, researchers expect to improve social, economic and public health indicators in the city. UEP graduate students Eliza Whiteman, Albert Engel, Jingyu Tu, and Kristine Keeney are working on the project with Prof. Hollander and Prof. Michael Johnson of UMass Boston.
