With new community on the rise, Weiss has his eye on another large Jersey City redevelopment

Having built nearly 800 apartments in an emerging section in Jersey City, veteran developer Sandy Weiss and his firm now hope to replicate that approach — seeking to build on their experience of trying to build a new neighborhood from scratch. The company is the designated master redeveloper for about four city blocks just east of the New Jersey Turnpike extension, where it has proposed building more than 2,300 apartments for a mix of income levels.

Long overdue

In our July issue, we detail the efforts of New Jersey’s largest brokerage and service firms to support diversity and inclusion among their employees. This is nothing new for industry giants like CBRE, JLL and Cushman & Wakefield, but it’s become increasingly clear that these efforts are critical to recruitment, retention and overall employee culture. It’s why you’ll find these firms taking pains to promote and cultivate networking groups tied to gender, racial, lifestyle and other forms of diversity. That only stands to grow in our own local market and globally.
