Director of Giv Group
– Field of Dreams: Lessons Learned
Chris Parker has an abiding passion for helping places renew. This interest has gradually progressed from buildings to blocks to catalytic neighborhood redevelopments like the Imagine Jefferson and Startup Crossing efforts. As Director of Giv Group, he's overseen the successful completion of over 500 units of low and mixed-income housing and breaks ground on another 500 in 2018. His most recent completed development, Project Open, is the first carbon-neutral multifamily building in Utah to be built at lower construction costs than a traditionally-powered structure.
