The developers of Brooklyn Village are hosting a pair of forums next week for historically underutilized businesses.


BK Partners is sponsoring MWSBE Participation in Design, Construction, Operations & Workforce Aug. 29 from 6 p.m.-8 p.m. at Land Use & Environmental Services Agency, 2145 Suttle Ave. 4th Floor and Aug. 30 at 11:30 a.m. at Belmont Regional Center, 700 Parkwood Avenue.  


“One of our key objectives is to provide access to equal economic opportunities which will result in minorities and women of Charlotte not only witnessing economic expansion but be active participants,” Don Peebles, founder of New York-based Peebles Corp., said last month. “These opportunities will result in future major entrepreneurs who will surpass my success as an entrepreneur.”


BK Partners, a collaboration of Conformity Corp. and Peebles Corp., has plans for 1,243 residential units, including 107 affordable housing apartments. Two hotels with 280 rooms combined would also be built along with 252,100 square feet in retail space and 680,700 square feet for offices.


Peebles Corp., the nation’s largest black-owned development firm, has $5 billion in projects in cities like Miami, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C., has pledged 35 percent of construction contracts to minority, women and small business enterprises.
