At the turn of the millennium, the 26- acre Pearl Brewery in San Antonio was abandoned and desolate—a collection of empty buildings and pavement with only five trees.

By any measure, San Francisco ranks among the world’s most beautiful cities. Yet for years, in a sector that tourists never see, 50 barracks-style buildings constructed in 1943 housed 264 families in poverty and fear.

Peoples Health New Orleans Jazz Market #thisisCNU

South Main #thisisCNU

Buena Vista, Colorado

Outside Buena Vista, Colorado, on the site of a former garbage dump, forty acres of riverfront land sat vacant for years. It took two nature-loving developers—risk-takers with a background as competitive kayakers—to see what it could become.
