The Founder

The Founder

Joseph A. Panepinto, Sr., Founder,
CEO and Visionary Place-maker

Joseph A. Panepinto Sr. is a visionary. From his first project onward, he has been committed to creating inspired urban communities, believing that cities are built neighborhood by neighborhood. Since founding the company, his major focus has been the renaissance of his hometown, Jersey City, New Jersey. Building on that experience, he and his team have developed urban centers creating vibrant metropolitan destinations around the world – with art, retail, education, restaurants and amenities – the ingredients that make people and cities thrive.

Originally an attorney by profession, Panepinto served as Jersey City’s Planning Board attorney and later the Jersey City Redevelopment Agency’s legal counsel in the early 1970s. Thereafter, his law firm represented numerous real estate developers, eventually developing on his own. From his first development in 1977 to the many towers built since then, Joe has never lost his focus on doing what’s right for the city.

“If it’s good for the city, it’s good for us."

The strength of a city depends on partnerships – with the city, financial, educational and medical institutions, as well as transportation centers, art institutions and fellow developers.

Building vibrant cities begins with resilient communities


A city is a living breathing place full of people – buildings are reflections of the spirit of the city. Creating places that fill the spirit also nurture the soul – they foster friendship, community, gathering, and brotherhood, where people want to spend time, because they want to, not because they have to. In essence, Panepinto is building neighborhoods that in turn inspire the larger community.
