Swimming Upstream – A Large Plan for the Harbor to Stir the Soul

BY JOHN EGELHAAF
@ VOL 6 ON SEP 16, 2016

John Egelhaaf is described - by a close, anonymous friend of his -  of usually being the smartest guy in the room with the highest, most honest standards. "If we could only see the goo in his head, it would be in technicolor and packaged brilliance." John is the Executive Director at Southwest Michigan Planning Commission

Peter Colovos is a Chicago native who's been described - by a close, anonymous friend of his -  "to be admired for his relentless jump-out-of-bed-every-day-with-a-purpose tenacity."   Founding Prairie Real Estate Group in Chicago, IL in 1994 was a culmination of transforming Peter’s passion of architecture construction and real estate experience into a career. Creating the optimal blend of good architecture and design product that enhances their tenants’ quality of life is the keystone of The Prairie Real Estate Group. (A quality of life that allows Peter the gusto to take our challenge to HACK THE HARBOR and swim from shore to shore. ;)

THEY GIVE a fresh look at the Twin Cities Harbor - by questioning everything, it might be possible to swim against the flow of the last half century!
