Student Brain Power–Kuchma Partners With UB Design School

Lots of brain power at the University of Bridgeport that Downtown developer Phil Kuchma is integrating into renewal. From Rob Varnon, CT Post:

Phil Kuchma was looking for an edge over the competition to attract young professionals to his newest apartment, so he turned to the University of Bridgeport.

On Friday, Kuchma, owner of the eponymous development company in Bridgeport, sat in the Bijou theater with more than 130 people listening to six teams of designers from UB’s Shintaro Akatsu School of Design pitch concepts on modern apartment living.

  1. *** Kuchma seems to be one of only a few movers & shakers in Bpt who’s not afraid to tap into some of the city’s raw jewels like U.B. and Fairfield County Entertainments, etc. in partnering up support to get a fresh new look and feel about the Park City and its attempts towards continuing economic development. This is part of what’s needed in this city and a lot more, no doubt! *** PHIL KUCHMA FOR MAYOR! ***
