No. 7: Sue Henderson

The ribbon-cutting at Jersey City’s Rivet development ushered in the beginning of a new era for the surrounding West End neighborhood and its transformation into University Place. Built upon a public-private partnership, Rivet was developed by The Hampshire Cos. and Claremont Cos. in conjunction with the city government and New Jersey City University, where Henderson serves as president.

“Today, we cut the ribbon for Rivet, the first apartment building to open at University Place, and celebrate the progress that is being made in this bold redevelopment project,” Henderson said at the ceremony. “It is transformative for both NJCU and our local community. University Place is a prime example of a win-win solution made possible through collaborative efforts involving the New Jersey Legislature, local government, the University and the business community.”

The development of University Place will see the construction of eight buildings, 1,000 residential units, over 120,000 square feet of retail space, a performing arts center, green space and more.
