Hugo Neu’s Kearny Point Baruch College, CUNY wins fifth Annual Design Challenge NAIOPNJ Intercollegiate Case Study Competition emphasizes innovation, job creation & sustainability K

EARNY, NJ — A life sciences and logistics hub, a lab center, art and film studios, a dedicated ferry terminal, and hydroponic farming and bee apiaries were among the uses and features envisioned for Kearny Point during NAIOP New Jersey’s Fifth Annual CRE Intercolle- giate Case Study Competition (CREICS). Student teams fromRutgers University, Mon- mouth University, Villanova University, Montclair State University and Baruch Col- lege, CUNY each presented their concepts for site sponsor Hugo Neu Corporation’s re- development of the 130-acre campus in South Kearny. “As part of our Industry Insights Series, the CREICS competition serves as a valu- able platform for educating local officials and students, while promoting the exchange of innovative ideas that ben- efits the participants and host companies,” said Gene Pres- ton , NAIOP New Jersey presi- dent. “We congratulate the five student teams and their advi- sors for their thoughtfulness, creativity and the tremendous amount of hard work they put into their projects.” The judges for this year’s competition included Steve Nislick and Michael Meyer, Hugo Neu Corporation; Brian Sabina, New Jersey Economic Development Authority; Claire Weisz and Chris Rice, WXY Ar- chitecture + Urban Design; Brian Decillis, Cushman & Wakefield; and Michelle Richardson, Hudson Coun- ty Economic Development Corporation. They consid- ered financial analysis and feasibility, design excellence, resilience and sustainability, and client goals in selecting the winner, awarding the $5,000 prize to the Baruch College team of Jinyu Chen, Matt Curcuru, Susanna Domosi, Jennifer Gallino, Romina Trieshi and Collin Wittman. Each of the case studies focused on incorporating Ke- arny Point’s shipyard roots and expanding on the suc- cess of Hugo Neu’s Building 78, which serves as a model for sustainable, cutting-edge commercial and industrial redevelopment and designing spaces for innovation and job creation. The Baruch College proposal emphasized the site’s

nesses and minorities. Each of the campus’s six new class A buildings would be industrial in design and LEEDGold cer- tified, with sustainability ele- ments including solar panels, vertical farming, air cleaning façades and green transporta- tion infrastructure. Ample of- fice space would be supported by retail, co-working, health and fitness, and recreation components. “This was an amazing ex- perience for all of us at Hugo Neu,” said Steve Nislick, CFO. “I was stunned by the students’ level of creativity and their organizational skills. Some of

their ideas have been in the back of our minds and some we haven’t identified. Com- ing from a new generation of thinkers, these concepts have even greater value, because they are the talent that is the driving force for developing the Kearny Point site.” “The CREICS competition encourages college students to consider careers in our indus- try and gives NAIOP fascinat- ing insights into how future industry leaders envision re- development,” said NAIOP NJ CEO Michael McGuinness . “It’s a tremendous educational opportunity for all of us.” 
