Julia is responsible for managing the real estate portfolio and shaping the company’s strategy and direction through acquisitions, operations, sales and marketing, financing and investments, and development projects. She oversees the development process including site selection, entitlements, planning, funding, and leasing for adaptive re-use and new construction and coordinates proposals, design, pro forma modeling, capital raising, partnerships, and due diligence.

Julia has overseen the creation of many distinctly different mixed-use urban developments that combine luxury residential living with entertainment, retail, parking and transit, and have achieved national acclaim. 

Prema oversees all aspects of the CCD’s planning, strategy, economic development and operations. The CCD is a downtown management district, which provides security, cleaning, place marketing and planning services, as well as streetscape and park improvements for the central business district of Philadelphia.

Lindsey Scannapieco is the Founder of Scout, an inter-disciplinary development practice that activates underutilized space through creative programming and development. Most recently, Scout redeveloped the 340,000 sqft historic Bok Vocational High School into a vibrant space in South Philly for over 200 community organizations, artisans and entrepreneurs. The project has been recognized with the ULI Philadelphia Vision Award for Transformative Development, the Center for New Urbanism (CNU) Charter Award, and most recently was longlisted by Dezeen in the Adaptive Reuse Architecture category. Scout’s work has been featured in numerous publications including Condé Nast Traveller, NYTimes, Grid Magazine, GOOD Magazine, FT Weekend, Le Cool and the Guardian.

In addition to development projects, Scout continues to oversee installations and engagement projects. Previous projects include collaborative installations alongside artists and makers for the PHS Flower Show in 2021 and 2022 and the innovative pop-up Films on Fridges, which was named “the UK’s hottest cinema”.

Lindsey was named by Curbed National as a Curbed Young Gun, a designation which seeks to identify ten of the most promising up-and-coming practices and people in architecture and urban development. Lindsey was awarded the Rising Star of Real Estate award by the Philadelphia Inquirer and frequently speaks at events and universities about creative approaches to real estate development.

Outside of work, Lindsey is a board member of the Fleisher Art Memorial and Co-President of the board for the Friends of FDR Park. Lindsey holds a B.S. in Real Estate Finance from the University of Southern California and MSc in City Design and Social Science from the London School of Economics.
