Reinventing New Jersey’s Obsolete Suburban Office Campus – The Local and Statewide Impacts

July 12, 2013
8:30 amto1:30 pm

New Jersey League of Municipalities Foundation Conference:

New Jersey experienced one of the greatest suburban office building booms in history during the 1980s.  Our globally recognized core economic specialization was automobile-dependent suburban office campuses, the nation’s cutting-edge growth model at the time.  But, this office empire is now between 23 and 33 years of age.  It is not only aging, but in many cases it is obsolete.  Information technology, globalization, and demographics have changed the very internal functions of office buildings, and their preferred locations.  Municipalities facing declining office ratables must work with developers to reimagine the suburban office campus. 

Attendees will learn about the 21st century office market, examine properties that have been reinvented, and discuss the many issues stemming from the new market realities.  Learn how to be proactive to reinvent the office campus in your community, preserving rateables, jobs, and infrastructure.
