Meet Peter Siegel, CEO Landex Development:

In pursuit of his vision of fostering a creative and harmonious relationship with the community as a whole, Peter has immersed himself in the artistic spectrum of the Gateway Arts District and has committed to developing the area as a focal point for celebrating the richness and diversity of its community members. He has devoted himself to further improving growth in the area, as well as extending the influence and economic vitality of the artists’ community.

“The more time I spend in the area, meeting people, experiencing the art and taking advantage of the amazing retail, restaurants and studios, the more I want to help promote this special place. We are thrilled to be continuing our investment in the Gateway Arts District,” said Peter Siegel, CEO Landex Development. “This is an amazing opportunity to help a vibrant area continue to grow and prosper while also supporting local art and artisans.”

In addition to commissioning the Artisan 4100 and 3807 Collections, and building Portico, an adjacent art gallery with studio space for artists, Landex has also sponsored the design of two sculptural bus stops and commissioned professional filming of interviews with local artists and area stakeholders. Landex also gives back to the community by sponsoring various events and expositions to support the arts and local businesses.

“[Artisan 4100] will be an inclusive community space where people can gather to share ideas about the world and art,” said Siegel. “Our vision is to provide a central gathering place that promotes positive communication and allows growth for not only the arts but local businesses.”
