Join us in this week’s episode of Tangible Remnants featuring Tonya Harris, founder of Parris Construction and Development, and a 20+ year veteran in real estate development. Tonya shares her journey into real estate development and reminds us that it’s never too late to start a new path. We also take a look at the Arch Social Club, the oldest continuously operating African American social club in the United States, which moved into the former Schantze’s Theatre in 1972. Listeners will gain valuable insights into Tonya’s model – designed to create minimal displacement by focusing on vacant and underutilized properties and fostering home and business ownership among legacy communities – as well as her vision to be a world-class leader in the design, creation, and delivery of restored urban communities.
