Ted Zangari, Co-Chair of the Redevelopment Practice Group at Sills Cummis Epstein & Gross P.C., served as a judge for the 46th annual “New Good Neighbor” awards competition sponsored by the New Jersey Business & Industry Association. The contest recognizes organizations that have worked to bring about an improved business climate in New Jersey by building or renovating a commercial facility. Projects are evaluated based upon their impact on economic development and job creation, architectural merit, and community involvement. The awards presentations will take place at a luncheon in June 2006.  “This year’s nominees included many fine examples of smart growth principles at work. Abandoned warehouse and industrial sites have been brought back to life as corporate office campuses, lifestyle centers and hotels. Blighted houses in downtown districts have been restored to beautiful, vibrant pubs and professional buildings,” observed Zangari.
