Black-Owned Construction Company Launches Business and Community Empowerment Conferencesby GDN Shared Post March 7, 2018
Philadelphia, PA — Darrell Choates, CEO of Choates General Contracting, Inc. (CGC), has received another prestigious award for his long-standing commitment to the community of Philadelphia.
Having survived the battle of attrition where a once thriving minority business community has been reduced to shambles, CGC doors are still open as the fight for relevance continues.
CGC is one of the last self-performing minority-owned construction company in Philadelphia still able to get on major projects.
These projects include: Tony DePaul 22nd Street Scape, Intech Construction Lovett library, Intech Construction Torresdale Library, L.F. Driscoll Comcast Tower 2, Intech Construction 3675 Science Center, A.P. Construction 61st Street Water Facility, Nicholson Corporation American Water Works Building, Camden Waterfront, Temple Student Housing, South West District Services Affordable Housing 100 Units, Camden, NJ Affordable Housing 30 Units, Jesus Christ Church of Latter Day Saints Temple, Church of Mormons Meeting House, Septa Restoration Project, IRS Building 30th Street Station, and Penn First New Hospital.
All are invited to join CGC and others at the monthly Community Leaders Appreciation Development conferences. As one of the co-hosts of these events, CGC is committed to helping raise awareness to bring an end to economic disenfranchisement – which is often the precursor to gun violence within the city of Philadelphia and within the African American community.
The meetings are held every third week of each month from 5pm to 7pm at:
Quorum Room University City Science Center
3711 Market Street, Suite 800
Philadelphia PA, 19104
The monthly conferences will be hosted by TIA. Those expected to be in attendance are Mayor Jim Kenney, District Attorney, Lawrence Krasner, Councilwoman Jannie Blackwell, Councilman Kenyatta Johnson, and from Camden City, Councilman Brian Coleman, and the People’s Champ Ali Sloan El.
