Program Description

Many post-industrial cities and suburban communities struggle with stranded assets reflecting changing market dynamics and the functional obsolescence of some existing buildings. This group of experts will discuss lessons learned from recent activities throughout New Jersey with a particular focus on the Trenton corridor.

The panels will address adaptive reuse and other creative approaches to address the challenges of finding new uses for old buildings and revitalize New Jersey’s urban and suburban communities. As a business owner/operator, you need to understand what stranded assets are, what they can become, and how they affect your long-term bottom line.  Presentations will focus on the below:

  • Reframing Incentives for Stranded Assets, the Government’s Role in Stranded Assets: This panel of experts will discuss the assessment and repurposing of stranded real estate assets in urban and suburban environments and their role as a catalyst for action.
  • Driving Change and De-Risking Real Estate: This panel of experts will discuss the value of stranded assets, why they are an opportunity, their life cycle, and why increasing numbers of companies and investors are realizing that this change can extend the lifecycle of their assets, and how the perception of those assets must change as we evolve and move forward.
