Peter Crawford founded Crawford Development Group in 2001.  Crawford was one of the first companies to invest in the Temple University area and has long been an advocate for that area.  Mr. Crawford serves on the Executive Committee of the Temple Area Property Association and also served on the Steering Committee which hoped to create a neighborhood improvement district in North Philadelphia.

In recent years, Crawford has developed a new focus on the South Kensington and Fishtown neighborhoods, home to the city’s largest concentration of artists and craftspeople.
