COVID-19's Impact on Plans for New Real Estate Development

Thu. 22 Oct, 2020 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm



Join Virginia Community Capital and the Virginia Economic Developers Association for a conversation with real estate developers Ed Walker and Dave McCormack on October 22nd at 12 pm. Known for their catalytic projects and innovative approaches to rehab and reuse developments, these two developers will share their experience with COVID-19, how it has impacted their current work, and how they are adjusting their approach to future projects.



About the Speakers

Dave McCormack
Through his work, Dave has recognized the nearly universal struggles of small-town America of identity, population, and economic development — and he is inspired to lead the charge of transformation. To initiate change, Dave created Waukeshaw Development, a successful real estate group in Old Towne Petersburg. Dave works with communities across Virginia and North Carolina to revitalize forgotten treasures. In doing so, he has launched two brewery brands, a popular coffee destination, and hundreds of apartments throughout the Commonwealth.

Waukeshaw achieves its goals by attracting traditional bank financing as well as seeking grants and other incentives. The group also works with an expert team of architects, CPAs, legal professionals, and consultants to syndicate state and federal historic tax credits. 


Ed Walker

Ed attended the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and the Washington & Lee University School of Law.
