It was during a tour of the one-acre test vineyard at the site in April 2007 with visiting scholars from Harvard University that the foundation for a formal case study of this dynamic redevelopment project gained momentum. Building upon a guest lecturing opportunity at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design during the Brownfields 2006 Conference in Boston, Hull CEO Craig A. Kasper and Todd Davis, CEO of Hemisphere Development LLC, agreed to meet with professors and doctoral candidates from Harvard to provide the extensive background needed to complete the study. Doctor of Design candidate Andreas Georgoulias completed the case study in October 2007 under the supervision of School of Design professor Spiro N. Pollalis. The study itself has not only become a basis for class discussion at Harvard, it is drawing national attention from across the brownfield industry.
