In 2015 and 2016, Maley Givens served as redevelopment counsel for the City. Among many projects that began during that period, the firm represented the City’s interests in negotiating and helping marshal the Atlantic City Gateway project to fruition bringing Stockton University’s Island Campus and the headquarters of South Jersey Gas to Atlantic City. The firm continues to utilize the full breadth of all laws at every level of government, not just redevelopment law, to create solutions that work for towns and private developers alike.
Serving as redevelopment counsel since 1999, Maley Givens has been involved in every aspect of the $350 million redevelopment of Glassboro’s downtown. Beginning with the initial planning, acquisition of properties, environmental remediation, search for and selection of redevelopers, agreements, land use approvals, financing and operation regulation, the firm has been an integral member of the Borough’s redevelopment team.
Acquisition of more than 100 properties was accomplished without the use of eminent domain. Development relationships were created and cultivated with Rowan University for a diverse, mixed-use development, built during an economic recession.
The development has strong ties to Rowan University and all of the development transactions have been structured to maintain Borough control over municipal land use and other regulation, securing the provision of steady revenue streams to the Borough for the benefit of all residents.
