Funds to Support Hackensack's Revitalization Vision  

HACKENSACK, N.J. – March 2, 2015 – Alfred Sanzari Enterprises, one of New Jersey's  most esteemed real estate development firms, made the inaugural donation to the Hackensack Main Street Redevelopment Fund, a new program created for Hackensack developers, business leaders and residents to support the Hackensack Upper Main Alliance's ongoing efforts to transform the city's downtown into a vibrant live-work-play destination.

The Hackensack Main Street Redevelopment Fund will support unbudgeted downtown improvements, envisioned and performed in collaboration with the City of Hackensack. 

"Alfred Sanzari Enterprises' support will be instrumental in our upcoming efforts to create a new footprint for the renaissance of downtown Hackensack," said Jerome J. Lombardo, chairman for the Upper Main Alliance.  "Since the 1970's no company has shown more loyalty or insight to Hackensack than Alfred Sanzari Enterprises.  The company's leadership is an example in an era when we will see Hackensack reach its potential through partnership with the business community."

"Giving back to the communities in which we are active is part of Alfred Sanzari Enterprises' corporate culture," said Ryan Sanzari, Alfred Sanzari Enterprises' director of operations.  "As a company with deep roots in Hackensack, we are committed to the City's future and are pleased to support the Upper Main Alliance in its ongoing efforts to revitalize the City's downtown business district."

The Upper Main Alliance recently broke ground on the Atlantic Street Park, a project it's working on in partnership with the City of Hackensack, DMR Architects and Boswell Engineering.  It is adjacent to the City's new Cultural Arts Center for which the Alliance also hopes to renovate. The Park and Cultural Arts Center are two of the many projects that are underway to beautify Hackensack's Main Street for residents, visitors and employees.

About the Downtown Rehabilitation Plan

Last year marked a major milestone for Hackensack and its downtown business district: The Upper Main Alliance, the City of Hackensack, Archer & Greiner and DMR Architects received a New Jersey Future 2014 Smart Growth Award for the creation of the City's Downtown Rehabilitation Plan.

Encompassing 163 acres and 389 individual properties on 39 city blocks, the Hackensack Downtown Rehabilitation Plan promotes a range of land uses. These include retail, restaurants, office, commercial, civic, and entertainment, along with a diversity of housing types, to create a mixed-use, pedestrian-friendly downtown.
