JERSEY CITY, N.J., March 13, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — CAPRE’s Fifth Annual New Jersey Gold Coast Investment Summit will convene the most active developers, investors, debt sources, brokers, equity sources and consultants on March 29 for vital discussion, debate and networking. The summit, produced by Hoboken-based CAPRE MEDIA | CAPRATE EVENTS, is the premier annual gathering for Hudson County, known in recent years as «The Gold Coast

The story of Hudson County mirrors the real estate turnaround in New York City’s boroughs. As New York evolved with new employment opportunities, a sharp population increase and the millennial surge, the Gold Coast has witnessed an increase in activity, as well. With expiration of the 421-a tax incentive in New York City, the region has become even more desirable for developers who continue to break ground in Jersey City, Hoboken, and areas in North Gold Coast, such as Edgewater and Fort Lee. The population of many Gold Coast communities such as Jersey City and Hoboken is growing rapidly, placing a burden on aging infrastructure, which will create challenges and opportunities for public-and-private sector executives.

«A real estate renaissance is underway along New Jersey’s Gold Coast,» according to the conference organizer, Brian Klebash. «In recent months new office space has been delivered in Jersey City and Hoboken – and quickly absorbed. A combination of New York and New Jersey tenants are finding exceptional class-A space at competitive rates to Manhattan. The retail market is changing dramatically with a rapid rise in independent coffee shops, high-end restaurants and boutique stores that complement the region’s world-class Italian delis. Neighborhoods such as Grove Street and Journal Square are bustling with activity.»

The summit will convene the most active commercial real estate firms in this high-level forum.  Participating speakers represent: Tenth Avenue Holdings, DMG Investments, Hugo Neu Corporation, Manhattan Building and Landsea Homes. 

New Jersey’s NoHo and SoHo (North of Hoboken and South of Hoboken) will be discussed by the myriad of speakers. More specifically, a panel will bring NoHo (communities North of Hoboken to Fort Lee) into focus as new investment and development opportunities emerge. Red-hot markets such as Jersey City and Hoboken will be discussed, as well.

The City of Jersey City will be co-presenting a special award ceremony to honor innovative new development and effective public-private partnerships.

CAPRE is pleased to partner with the region’s leading commercial real estate news sources: Jersey Digs and Real Estate NJ.
