New Jersey Investment Summit to Bring Together Leading Commercial Real Estate & Economic Development Executives

Join Leading Multifamily, Office, Retail, Hospitality and Healthcare Real Estate Executives on February 26

JERSEY CITY, N.J., Feb. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Greater New York and New Jersey's leading investors and developers are making plans to attend CRE's inaugural Gold Coast Investment Summit on February 26 in Jersey City. New Jersey's Gold Coast is the Tri-State's next big real estate market, benefiting from proximity to Manhattan and an influx of new multifamily renters, the myriad of high-end retailers and new hotels. Indeed, the Gold Coast is attracting new investors, developers, capital sources, and tenants, and will be the focus of CRE's Gold Coast Investment Summit, a new and innovative real estate conference. On the heels of the popular New Jersey Apartment Summit, CRE will go beyond the headlines with a summit devoted exclusively to Gold Coast investment and development in the various property types: office, retail, hotel, multifamily, industrial, healthcare and innovative mixed-use. If you are active in the market, you will not want to miss out on the high-quality content and networking opportunities.
