Abstract:

Real estate developer Kirk A. Sykes was born in Queens, New York in 1958 and raised in Providence, Rhode Island. Sykes graduated from the Moses Brown School. He earned his B.A. degree in architecture at Cornell University. Sykes was the lead partner in the development and operation of the first African American-built hotel in Boston, Massachusetts. The 175-room, ten-story Hampton Inn & Suites, one of a very small number of minority-owned hotels, which operate under a major franchise name, sits on the edge of Roxbury. Sykes has worked on a number of important development projects in the Boston area, including the Dudley Street Neighborhood Initiative, the redevelopment of the Boston Specialty Rehabilitation Hospital site, and the Southwest Corridor retail project. In 2004, Sykes served as architect for the Democratic National Convention in Boston. Sykes was president of the New Boston Urban Strategy America Fund, a group which invested in projects aimed at improving urban communities.
