MSL and Company, LLC (MSL), a community-driven real estate development and advisory firm founded and led by Macy Leung MDes ’11, is one of three finalists to design and develop a new Emeryville Center for the Arts and Culture. The redevelopment aims to bring a mix of spaces–including galleries, commercial, community, and green space–to the City’s downtown. A decade in the making, the project is part of a partnership between the City of Emeryville and Pixar Animation Studios.
“We know that the redevelopment of the Emeryville Center for the Arts and Culture is important to the city, the Arts Community, local businesses, as well as businesses that occupy the property,” said Leung in a press release. “We are committed to working with city leaders and believe this redevelopment of the Arts Center will complement current city’s vision and celebrates the City’s new Cultural Arts District designation, established by California Arts Council. At the same time, the project will create an active, vibrant community for those who want to live, work and create in Emeryville.”
MSL’s Board of Advisors include Nicolas P. Retsinas MCP ’71 and Brian Cunat AMDP ’09.
