Vocon, a leading national architectural and design firm, and Forest City's internal project team received a 2018 AIA Ohio Honor Award for their efforts. 

In designing our space, the combined team began with the framework of an outdoor mixed-use community and brought it inside to create different themed areas throughout our floor plan. The award committee noted the design team's use of shared spaces, as well as the connectivity of each of the company's floors.

As part of Forest City's commitment to our local communities and core values, the company is launching a new volunteer time off (VTO) program that will provide associates with up to eight paid hours a year to volunteer with nonprofit organizations.

The program is currently being piloted in the company's corporate headquarters in Cleveland, and will launch nationwide on January 1, 2019.

"One of the ways our people help bring 'the power of place' to life is through their direct involvement with local nonprofits and participation in impactful volunteering opportunities," said Kristen Grabenstein, manager of Community Relations for Forest City. "We see the introduction of our VTO program as an important next step in supporting our associates and local communities."

"The Last Three," an iconic 17-foot-tall bronze sculpture depicting the last three northern white rhinos –-Najin, Fatu & Sudan – created by renowned public artists Gillie and Marc, is on display at MetroTech Commons.

"Forest City is honored to showcase 'The Last Three' at MetroTech Center," said John Bowen, senior vice president, director property management, Forest City New York. "Our partnership with Gillie and Marc reinforces our commitment to the arts and culture, providing a public space for Brooklynites to gather and learn together, and we hope everyone takes advantage to come view the sculpture and enjoy its beauty and playfulness, while also learning about this important cause."

The countless smiling faces tell the story – this year's Community Day was another resounding success!

​We're excited to share more about the things that interest and inspire us about creating places where people, businesses and communities thrive.

Nationwide, ​Forest City associates are set to celebrate the company's 15th annual Community Day on Friday, May 18, by partnering with local nonprofits to complete service projects in many of the communities we serve.
