Capalino joined several hundred New York leaders in real estate and land use for a Real Estate Developer Forum featuring Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz. The event, hosted by Herrick Feinstein LLP on June 22, was attended by our land use, real estate and housing experts: Chris Collins, Executive Vice President of Land Use and Real Estate Strategies, Richard Barth, Senior Advisor for Land Use and Housing Strategies, and Claire Altman, Director of Affordable & Supportive Housing Development Services. Capalino is proud to have played a major role in the revitalization of the Bronx on behalf on our clients, and the forum was an exciting opportunity to show support for the neighborhood and its initiatives.
The Borough President’s remarks focused on important development projects that will continue to make the Bronx a more vibrant, diverse, safe, economically strong and affordable place to live, work and operate businesses. He cited three recent developments to illustrate the ways that the Bronx is booming: the Bronx waterfront development, the opening of a fourth public golf course in the Bronx, and the conversion of the former Kingsbridge Armory into the largest ice skating complex in the country, a project that Capalino worked on.
Capalino is enthusiastic about the renaissance occurring in the Bronx. Our team, in partnership with the Borough President, is delighted to have played a role in shaping the plan for the redevelopment of the Kingsbridge Armory. Our commitment to the Bronx doesn’t stop there — we are also currently working with residential developers on the Bronx waterfront, as well as developers of mixed use, affordable and senior housing in the Bronx. We believe that with continued collaboration between private and public sector leaders, we can build a stronger Bronx.
