Baumhart Scholar plays key role in Chicago development
Baumhart Scholar Kemena Brooks is a leader for others. As a Senior Project Manager at The Community Builders, she directs the development of mixed-income housing and community asset building in multiple Chicago neighborhoods.
In late 2020, Kemena’s efforts took a big step forward with the groundbreaking of 508 Pershing, a new mixed-use development which will deliver a mixture of affordable and market rate apartments and neighborhood retail in Chicago's Bronzeville neighborhood. Kemena spoke at the virtual groundbreaking alongside Mayor Lori Lightfoot and other Chicago leaders.
