GSI Partners and other stakeholders attended our first Quarterly Meeting of 2016 on January 27th, where Econsult unveiled their findings from the much-anticipated GSI Local Economic Impact Report. They project that GSI investment as a result of Green City, Clean Waters will generate $3 billion in economic growth in Philadelphia over the next and create over 23,000 jobs. This will add significantly to tax revenues and property values. See below for more details about the release of the report.
