Danielle Costantini specializes in the management of sustainable development projects. She excels at convening stakeholders around issues of land use, housing, economic development, transportation, public health and the environment.
Danielle has a particular interest in older industrial communities, characterized by widespread legacy contamination, vacancy and abandonment. In her time as a Fellow with U.S. EPA, she supported technical assistance projects under the HUD-DOT-EPA Partnership for Sustainable Communities. Danielle gained extensive experience working on aging infrastructure and vacant property management and worked closely with local government to design, coordinate and implement comprehensive strategies for brownfield redevelopment and neighborhood revitalization.
Danielle is passionate about climate resilience and adaptation. She has specific expertise in identifying barriers to greening older buildings and facilitating the policy, process and programmatic changes to reduce those barriers. This work looks beyond individual buildings to develop community-wide strategies for the revitalization of downtowns or districts.
Ms. Costantini holds a Masters of Science in Historic Preservation degree from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a Bachelor of Architecture degree from the University of Notre Dame.
