Speaker Bio
Jackie co-founded AthenianRazak, and directs the company’s efforts toward enhancing urban viability. She has led redevelopment projects such as 833 Chestnut, bringing the value of this historic 750,000 sf office building from $7/sf to $230/sf, strategic projects such as two facilities master plans for the School District of Philadelphia addressing issues of excess space, management and repositioning efforts such as increasing the value of 700 distressed NJ apartment units by approximately $8 million or the in-progress repositioning of SEPTA’s Suburban Station Shops, and construction projects such as the simultaneous build of five data centers in an historic Chicago building on an accelerated schedule, completing work $8 million under budget. Jackie’s approach employs real estate to realize mission-driven goals, an approach she emphasizes in the projects the firm undertakes and the development of its staff.

Prior to AthenianRazak, Jackie founded and led Athenian Properties in 2001, and co-founded Renaissance Properties in 1989. At these firms she oversaw redevelopment, repositioning, management or consulting on more than 11 million sf of commercial properties and 5,800 residential units.
