Clarke Lewis is a Senior Development Manager at The Platform, a Detroit-based real estate development company. Having grown up in Pittsburgh, Clarke always felt a connection to undervalued rust belt cities. His development career started with a simple class project at the corner of Woodward and Baltimore in Detroit. With his then classmates, and future colleagues, the three put together the Baltimore Station project. “Our $1 million project proposed in class, quickly turned into a $40 million, multi-phased development,” said Lewis.

Prior to The Platform, Clarke was a Founder at Pivot Real Estate Services and worked at Peter Allen & Associates and McIntosh Poris & Associates. He was featured as a Crain’s Detroit Business 20 in their 20s.
