Hemisphere combines vision with expertise to restore economic vitality to properties often long underutilized or seemingly hopelessly tainted.
Bringing unparalleled creativity to resolve a site’s most daunting challenges, Hemisphere delivers specialized expertise on all aspects of brownﬁeld redevelopment – including the complex environmental, legal, real estate, ﬁnancial and political hurdles involved in a sophisticated redevelopment project.
Hemisphere’s principals, in fact, wrote the authoritative treatise on the subject and apply that expertise to every Hemisphere project. Since founding Hemisphere in 1994, Todd S. Davis, Esq., Hemisphere’s CEO, has been recognized as an innovator and industry leader, serving on the Board of Directors of the National Brownﬁeld Association, the Urban Land Institute’s Redevelopment and Reuse Committee and the American Bar Association’s, Government and Private Sector Innovation and Environmental Transactions and Brownfields Committees. Mr. Davis’ insights have been highlighted as the resident brownﬁeld development insider in his “Ask the Expert” column in Brownﬁeld News, the industry’s leading publication on brownﬁeld redevelopment.
As a nationally renowned redevelopment company, Hemisphere combines vision with expertise to restore economic vitality to properties often long underutilized or seemingly hopelessly tainted.
Hemisphere’s deep experience, relentless work ethic and outstanding track record of successful dealmaking resulted in a collaboration with NYSE listed Duke Realty Corporation, one of the largest publicly traded, vertically integrated ofﬁce/industrial REITs, to jointly pursue the acquisition, remediation and development of brownﬁeld sites. Duke Realty owns, manages, or has under development more than 138 million square feet in 21 major U.S. cities. Hemisphere’s creativity in redeveloping brownﬁeld sites has been highlighted through case studies prepared by Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management and Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design.
“Hemisphere was one of the first true brownfield development companies in the industry. While many companies have come and gone, their success has distinguished them as an industry leader.”
“Since 1976, our community struggled with one of the nation’s largest brownfield sites. While many developers could see the value of the real estate, none could unlock it. Hemisphere’s combination of vision, expertise and sheer determination has transformed not only the site, but the entire community. They do what they say with the utmost of professionalism and are just plain smart!”
“UD relied on Hemisphere’s expertise to structure a high stakes acquisition from NCR Corporation critical to the University’s expansion. Hemisphere tirelessly negotiated a litany of difficult issues. Their experience and insight gave great comfort to our Board, allowing a tough deal to get done. We were fortunate to have them lead our team.”
