Terry Pappas | Mapping a Modern MS

Wednesday, July 27, 2016

Developer and businessesman of Brookhaven, Terry Pappas is a visionary. The desire to expand Brookhaven’s historical district and to completely renovate the downtown area drives Terry’s work. What sets Terry apart from other developers is that he tries to save historical aspects of each building he remodels instead of starting from scratch.

“There’s a couple of things we probably didn’t have to save, but to me, that’s the history. So we try to save it all and mix the modern with the historical… After I’m dead and gone, generations will be able to experience this building for a long time.”-Terry
