“Construction in northern New Jersey appears on the verge of explosive growth,” says Spearing. “There are many new and diverse opportunities ... [for] an emerging hospitality economy based on casinos, hotels and related industries, providing economic benefits that could well be historic in scope. [The region] will see these economic benefits extend to virtually every component and level of the economy not only in New Jersey but also New York. We are witnessing a new era for our region.”
