Students were able to get a first hand look at 2 new development projects going up in Remington. Thibault Manekin, partner in Seawall Development, extended an invitation to the school to get a personal tour of the Remington Row and R House projects. In addition to touring and learning about an active construction site, the students heard about the development process, final plans, and philosophy behind the projects. After the tour, the students wrote about the experience. Everyone was excited at the chance for this opportunity. However, there were many sobering comments like this one from student and lifelong Remington resident Kelsey Larrimore who wrote, “It is so amazing to see the process of building something and watching it evolve. I liked the way the building was set up. It has a lot of great things to offer. I wish that the lower classes had the opportunity for things like this. We get pushed to the side and nothing that is being built will impact us. We won’t even get the chance to experience all the great things that’s happening around us.” We appreciated the kindness during the tour shown by Thibault and the folks at Seawall.
