Highlands mastermind Judd Kirk leaves Port Blakely
July 5, 2011
Judd Kirk, a visionary behind the Issaquah Highlands urban village, is due to depart from highlands developer Port Blakely Communities on June 30.
“Judd has brought an extraordinary breadth of skills and experience in community building, real estate and sustainable development to Port Blakely Companies,” Port Blakely Communities President Rene Ancinas said in a statement. “His creative ideas and collaboration with public officials, builders, residents and so many others helped create the successful community we have today.”
Following the long-planned move from Port Blakely, Kirk plans to serve as a consultant in the real estate industry.
Kirk served as Port Blakely Communities president from 1990 through December 2008, and later as senior real estate strategist for the company.
