Economic Development & Neighborhood Branding

Marino extensively represents clients involved with community-oriented economic development. We have worked on behalf of a wide range of Business Improvement Districts, neighborhoods, local development organizations, public-private partnerships, community advocacy groups, and private developers.

Our clients in this area call on us to create branding, messaging, and broad climates of support for economic development initiatives that enable on-schedule project progression and successful completion. We also continually promote local events, ensuring that the media report on the unique and vibrant qualities of a particular neighborhood and that city officials are made aware that a given neighborhood is flourishing.

Our clients in this area receive significant added value from our distinctive convergence of core expertise.

Marino has conceived and managed sophisticated, street smart and successful campaigns that have been instrumental to the ultimate success of major economic development initiatives.
