Land Use Practice on the Move

January 25, 2023

In case you missed it, we are proud to share the news that Baye Adofo-Wilson, Of Counsel at Post Polak, was recently recognized by NJBiz magazine as #9 in their Commercial Real Estate Power 50 for his work as CEO of BAW Development, where he developed the concept, studies, plans and financing and now oversees the $94 million-dollar redevelopment of the Hinchliffe Stadium Neighborhood restoration and mixed-use project in Paterson. Read the full article here.

You may not know that Baye was assisted by Marsha Moore, Head of our Land Use Department, who secured the land use entitlements for Hinchliffe Stadium – securing the right to restore the 7,800 seat stadium and build a six-story mixed use building. Now, with construction nearing completion, Doug Sherman and our Hospitality team are consulting on placement of alcohol beverage licenses in the stadium and surrounding development.

Our Land Use team has helped our developer and hospitality clients from purchase of property to lease negotiations, from obtaining site plan approvals to securing alcohol licensing for restaurant slabs. In addition to having practitioners intimately familiar and actively involved on the developer side, we also have attorneys who represent land use boards. And we take particular pride in our nimbleness and ability to assist clients more efficiently than larger firms.

Post Polak is uniquely positioned to assist our hospitality industry clients in various aspects of their businesses. With long experience in the industry and practical understanding of development, we can assist in the development of a project from concept inception to shovels in the ground. Whether you are evaluating site suitability or securing zoning entitlements, we can help.
