Governor Phil Murphy and Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop are just a few of the speakers that are slated for a real estate conference that should come roaring back in a big way after COVID-19 scrapped last year’s festivities.
The Jersey City Summit for Real Estate Investment will be going virtual for the first time as part of their 2021 edition, which will be held from June 15-17. Organizers expect over 1,000 professionals from the field to attend the summit, which will be keynoted by Murphy and Fulop for the third consecutive year.
Other confirmed speakers on the government side of development issues include Jersey City Council President Joyce Watterman and several officials from the Jersey City Redevelopment Agency.
Real estate developers scheduled to speak at the conference include Mahbod Nia of Mack-Cali, Jonathan Kushner of Kushner Real Estate, Fred Cooper of Toll Brothers, Laurent Morali of Kushner Companies, Christopher Albanese of Albanese Organization, Wasseem Boraie of Boraie Development, and Chris Weilminster of Urban Edge Properties.
The gathering has become one of the region’s must-attend real estate conferences and will cover a range of topics including office, multi-family, retail, mixed-use, affordable housing, placemaking, and institutional investment.
Day three of the conference will set aside time to discuss three specific projects in Jersey City that include Argent Ventures’ The Cove, Boraie Development’s Canal Crossing, and Silverman’s development currently under construction, 170 Erie.
The conference looks to highlight recent successes and explore investment and site selection opportunities in both Jersey City and the greater metro New York area. Those interested can learn more at the summit’s website and take advantage of early-bird rates, which will be in effect until May 14.
