This week, KRE Group announced the launch of KRE Live, a virtual space with a calendar of online social, fitness, entertainment and educational options to aid the public during this period of social distancing and the COVID-19 crisis.

The KRE Live website provides a full schedule of classes, demonstrations, talks and other live streams offered in real-time and at no cost. KRE is working with the local business community to bring their services and expertise to residents who can no longer visit in person.

The Zoom powered live streams are curated to provide a variety of activities and discussions: family-friendly options include a Spanish Class for Kids with Fasttrack Languages and The Unicorn NYC Presents Babies N’ Beats. Other adult-oriented classes include a WFH PT Stretch Class with Lisbeth Hoyt, Brizz’s Bootcamp hosted by Hudson River Fitness, and a cooking class led by Hoboken favorite Hudson Table.

Headquartered in Jersey City, NJ, KRE Group is one of the largest privately held diversified real estate companies in New Jersey.

“These are unchartered waters for all of us,” said Jonathan Kushner, president of KRE Group. “Once we put all of the necessary measures in place to keep our residents and staff as safe as possible, we began thinking of ways that would improve their quality of life during this restrictive period. KRE Live will allow them to enjoy many of the activities they’ve been missing, while also increasing exposure and building new audiences for so many local businesses and individuals who are dealing with temporary shutdowns.”

“We’re all in this together,” said Mr. Kushner. “When we can’t control a situation, we have a company approach of doing our best to control our reaction to that situation.”
