The Timing is Primed – 3rd Wave of Projects

There are a series of historic expansions that are transforming Jersey City. The scale and depth of redevelopment and related projects happening is awe inspiring. There is an especially strong convergence of creative entrepreneurs, boutique, luxury, fashion and makers that have made the food & retail scene in Jersey City extraordinarily diverse.

Reposition Realized – Core Investment Market

The City and it’s partners have deployed an award winning branding campaign that’s been quite successful at making the case for Jersey City to employers, developers and business selection specialists. With hotel occupancy rates north of 90%, the city is welcomed as a retail, restaurant and cultural destination.

Tremendous Momentum – More than a Decade Running!

Whether it’s competitive construction costs, impressive cap rates or the growing affection millennials have, it’s also clear that Jersey City’s development, marketing and outreach efforts are firing on all cylinders. Jersey City has cemented itself as national contender for TAMI, FIRE & creative firms. Its Class A Office, Multifamily & Mixed-Use properties are the rival of many Tier 1 markets with north of $5 billion dollars of projects in construction or in the pipeline.  No wonder Jersey City is considered by many the ‘Most Exciting & Energetic Domestic Emerging Market’.
