As redevelopment picks up in New Jersey, how will the state’s cities and towns position themselves to attract high-quality projects? What are investors looking for? As former president of New York City Economic Development Corporation, Seth Pinsky was tasked with advancing and supporting billions of dollars in new projects. From this vantage point he built an understanding of market trends and explored new groundbreaking opportunities. He also served as head of Mayor Bloomberg’s Special Initiative for Rebuilding and Resiliency post-Sandy, where he developed an appreciation for future-oriented risk assessment in real estate. Mr. Pinsky now heads RXR Realty’s metropolitan emerging market strategy, where he is charged with identifying new development opportunities throughout the Tri-State region.
