In our continuing effort to study New Jersey’s major cities and their rates of revitalization, we are going to examine New Jersey’s most outstanding urban restoration story — New Brunswick — thanks to the diligent work of key developers and anchor institutions in health care, education and government. You will hear from these vital players themselves that have put this spectacular redevelopment program together, including not only Chris Paladino of New Brunswick Development Corp., but also Tony Coscia, his lawyer and adviser, who together have formulated the creative financing deals necessary to achieve $5 billion worth of development over the last 20 years. In addition, we will hear from other critical players who have participated in this revitalization and made New Brunswick the outstanding success story that it is, including Wasseem Boraie of Boraie Development, Mayor Jim Cahill, Tim Sullivan of the Economic Development Authority, Mark Manigan of RWJBarnabas Health and Tony Calcado of Rutgers University.
We will study the intricate capital stacks that these public and private partners have created, combined with the intricate joint venture partnerships with major anchors like Rutgers and RWJBarnabas.
Come and learn how a New Jersey city can be successfully revitalized in a couple of decades. One would wonder why it is not an example for all of New Jersey’s urban areas that need help.
