Candace Damon has over 20 years of experience in the management of complex, public-private real estate and economic development activity.

For over 15 years at HR&A, Candace Damon has been responsible for successful strategies for the redevelopment of urban downtowns and waterfronts in diverse locales such as New York City, Charlotte, Memphis, Philadelphia, Boulder, Tucson, and Toronto.

Ms. Damon has developed a specialty in public and not-for-profit capital-program management. She has advised a variety of transit agencies, the City of New York, the Museum for African Art, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, and the City University of New York, helping them deliver on-time and cost-effective capital-program management. She designed and administered the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority’s major capital program that responds to the energy needs of New York State’s low- and moderate-income multi-family housing stock. Under Candace’s direction, the program ramped up to serve a pipeline of over 90,000 units and closed deals with a total value of over $150 million.

On the civic front, Candace has served as the President of the Atlantic Avenue Local Development Corporation since 2000. As the volunteer President of the Board of this organization, Candace is concerned with issues including appropriate redevelopment to spur economic development, promotion of retail businesses, and preservation of the 10-block corridor’s Civil War-era architecture.

Candace is an Amherst College and Harvard Law School graduate who spent several years working as a land use and real estate attorney.
