Mr. Levenson was invited by the Brandeis University Graduate School of International Economics and Finance to speak on "The Canary Wharf Case." The lecture was part of the school's Real Estate Forum which brings in noted experts and lecturers to speak on real estate transactions and developments. The Real Estate Forum and the lectures are sponsored by the Slifka Fund for Responsible Globalization.

Mr. Levenson lectured on the Canary Wharf transaction as well his involvement in the subsequent go-around at Canary Wharf in 1995 when a group put together by Paul Reichmann bought the project back from the foreclosing banks and continued with development of what is a very successful development today. He also spoke about his involvement with the Reichmanns in connection with the construction and development of the World Financial Center in Lower Manhattan, a project he has been intimately involved with for 15 years.
