CSG’s industry-leading clients include a wide spectrum of owners, developers, investors, lenders and users of all real estate asset types in both the private and public sectors. From international publicly held investor/owners, to regional and local prominent owners, developers and lenders, to manufacturers and Fortune 100 users of real estate, our private-sector clients seek CSG’s strategic counsel for their complex and often high-profile projects. Our public-sector clients — including energy and utilities providers, municipalities and other governmental entities — look to our experienced team to help achieve their unique objectives.
Regardless of their industry, CSG clients appreciate our creative, multidisciplinary and results-oriented approach in connection with real estate and environmental assignments that run the gamut, from large-scale multiuse projects to multifaceted site remediation and environmental permitting matters.
We are chosen because of our in-depth understanding of our clients’ business, our efficient and laser-focused pursuit of their goals and our combination of legal and business acumen which separates us from the average practitioners.
Cutting-edge strategic thinking and innovative execution are our hallmarks, but we go further. Our team takes great pride in the ability to reach into our robust network of private- and public- sector leaders to create and foster relationships which can, in both the short and long term, reap significant benefits for our clients.
This all adds up to a substantial value proposition for CSG clients who gain considerable efficiencies from drawing upon the “one-stop shopping” afforded by our firm’s full-service resources.
The expansive scope of our practice is best demonstrated in the range of pioneering, ambitious projects that clients have entrusted CSG to help guide across the finish line.
CSG continues to serve as counsel to the designated developer of the Montclair Arts & Entertainment District in its $135 million, 3.5-acre mixed-use development set to energize the City’s vibrant cultural, dining and shopping downtown area. Our attorneys have taken a lead role in this landmark project — helping assemble the sites, securing the necessary land use approvals and negotiating all related real estate concerns.
Further, we represent the developer of a first-of-its-kind food waste recycling facility in Linden. The $210 million Brownfield investment will result in one of the State’s largest carbon reduction resources and stand as a harbinger for the future of energy supply in New Jersey. CSG handled all municipal and regulatory approvals, as well as other environmental, land use and real estate related matters.
Across the river in New York City, CSG was delighted to lead the deal team that secured a $72 million construction loan to finance the development of what will be the world’s tallest modular hotel project. Notably international in scope, the development’s modular components were manufactured, packaged and delivered from Poland.
