Reduce, reuse, recycle: Vintage Jersey properties are ripe for repurposing

As one of America’s original 13 colonies, New Jersey has a rich and historic past.

These vacant relics — together and individually — can be transformed into new, vibrant centers for live, work and play.

Newark Broad Street’s time to shine

Having started my commercial real estate career in Newark, New Jersey in the late 1980s, I’ve had a front row seat to the evolution of The Brick City, and specifically the strides taken by the community toward enhancing the soul of the downtown area.
