As a founding partner of Redgate with more than 30 years of experience developing complex urban real estate projects with a specialty in managing the master planning, permitting and development process, Ralph is the partner in charge of the redevelopment of the L Street Power Station site.
Ralph is no stranger to transformative development – prior to co-founding Redgate, he was the principal in charge of the mixed-use, 5.3 million square foot North Point project in Cambridge, also serving as a member of the executive development team which oversaw all development, investment and project management. Additionally, as former director of maritime and real estate for the Massachusetts Port Authority, Ralph has vast experience creating significant value for land owners of large obsolete industrial properties by converting them into residential, retail or mixed-use developments. This experience, coupled with his passion for authenticity and community enrichment, keeps him excited to see the project through to completion. Ralph is particularly driven by the notion of reviving Turbine Hall, which he calls the “heart and soul” of the development.
Born in Boston, Ralph received his Bachelor of Arts in history from the University of New Hampshire. Prior to his busy career in real estate development, he somehow found time to play on the 1979 and 1980 World Cup and Olympic hockey teams, in addition to 2 Stanley Cups while working for the Pittsburgh Penguins. He now lives in Charlestown with his wife. If you’re passing by the site, keep an eye out – Ralph loves walking, and is known to be on the site as often as he can.
