New Good Neighbor Awards recognize outstanding New Jersey economic development projects.

The New Jersey Business & Industry Association and New Jersey Business magazine are seeking nominations for the 60th Annual New Good Neighbor Awards that honor outstanding economic development projects in New Jersey.

“New Good Neighbor Awards recognize the visionary architects, builders and financing professionals who turn exciting ideas into reality and make New Jersey a better place to live and do business,” said NJBIA President & CEO Michele N. Siekerka, Esq. “This competition showcases the best of the best who invest in communities, create jobs, and improve lives.”

Projects can be nominated in any of these three categories: New Construction, Community Enhancement (parks/streetscapes), and Renovation/Expansion. Eligible projects must have been completed (construction or capital expenditures) within the past two years (Jan. 1, 2018 – Dec. 31, 2019) and can be nominated using the online form on NJBIA’s website.

The deadline for submitting nominations is Feb. 14.

NJBIA will contact eligible nominees and ask them to provide details about their projects. Judging will be based on projects’ economic benefits, job creation, architectural merit and community involvement. Winners will be profiled in New Jersey Business magazine’s July issue, as well as on NJBIA’s website.

The 2020 New Good Neighbor Awards will be presented on July 14.
