A name partner at Chiesa Shahinian & Giantomasi, Giantomasi is a major real estate player in the Newark-Elizabeth corridor, serving as redevelopment counsel to many of the area’s most notable mixed-use projects. This work includes New Jersey Performing Arts Center’s signature master plan for the mixed-use redevelopment of 6.1 acres surrounding the cultural institution into a vibrant new arts neighborhood, along with several marquee projects in the industrial marketplace including the 140,000-square-foot FreezPak freezer warehouse facility on the Newark-Elizabeth border.
Outside Essex County, he’s involved in projects including a 360,000-square-foot last-mile Amazon distribution center in Rutherford, an 880,000-square-foot UPS logistics center on the MOTBY redevelopment site in Bayonne, and much of the transit-oriented development taking place in Morristown and Harrison.
As a member of CSG’s executive committee, Giantomasi has been one of the driving forces behind the firm’s growth – in revenue, where it surpassed the $80 million milestone; in geographic footprint with an enhanced presence in New York City and western Essex County coming online over the course of 2020; and in headcount, which now stands at 175 attorneys.
Giantomasi chairs the board of trustees of Newark Beth Israel Medical Center and Children’s Hospital of New Jersey, and the hospital and the larger RWJBarnabas Health System have benefitted from his vision and steady leadership during the pandemic and the road to recovery.
