Please join us for a public celebration of the 30th Anniversary of the revitalization of Fort Andross. In 1986, when the Fort had fallen into disrepair, Coleman Burke purchased it at auction and has spent the past 30 years restoring the complex. Today, Fort Andross is a first class business center housing over 80 small businesses and attracting an array of amazing talent.
The Fort thrives and serves as an anchor for downtown Brunswick. This event will honor Coleman Burke and allow the audience to learn the history behind the enormous revival of this 495,000 square foot business center.

Burke, of New York, NY, is the founder and Managing Partner of the Waterfront Companies, a commercial real estate company situated in four states: New York, Massachusetts, Maine, and Colorado.
