Dale McGirr

Before joining GBBN Architects, Dale served for 29 years at the University of Cincinnati (22 years as a cabinet officer). In addition to leading the traditional financing functions at UC, Dale was responsible for completing the 1989 campus master plan and played an integral role in 20 major building projects. Through a series of nonprofit corporations formed in collaboration with the neighborhood and business associations, Dale established an innovative community development program in the neighborhoods surrounding both UC campuses. This program has stimulated hundreds of millions of new investment in student housing, market housing, retail, and office development, all accomplished using various forms of public/private partnerships to creatively finance projects owned by private entities.
