Taconic, Clarion Host Community Action Day at Bronx’s Eastchester Heights 

Taconic Partners and Clarion Partners hosted a press conference, followed by a Community Action Day, on Saturday, June 11, at their flagship Quality Communities property, Eastchester Heights in the Bronx.   

In seeking to celebrate the importance of building strong, positive communities, Taconic worked with visual artist Pamella Allen to develop and execute a two-day initiative that first brought participants together to create imagery, symbols, silhouettes, and words that reflect themselves and the community during an Art Workshop led by Allen. 

“We have been waiting to unveil this project with the Eastchester Heights and Bronx communities as it represents our ability to come together and create something impactful,” said Andrew Schwartz, VP of residential asset management at Taconic. “Pamella Allen is a true visionary, and this project would not have been the same without her.”
