Congratulations to our friend and colleague, Debra Tantleff of Roseland Property Company, for being recognized as one of Real Estate Forum’s “Forty Under 40.” It’s a well-deserving tribute to one of the industry’s brightest young stars who will continue to shine in the multi-family and mixed-use development arenas for years to come.
FORTY UNDER 40 – By Paul Bubny
In reading through the profiles of this year’s 40 Under 40 honorees, it becomes apparent that commercial real estate offers a breadth of experience unmatched by many other industries. No two of this year’s honorees are alike in terms of their responsibilities, their backgrounds or their accomplishments. A few represent the latest generation of real estate families, while others rose through the ranks at their firms. Real Estate Forum editors selected the 40 rising stars that are highighted over the next nine pages from among more than 250 nominations. As diverse a group as this year’s honorees are, what all 40 have in common is a commitment to real estate excellence and to making an impact on their chosen fields.

A temporary job at a plumbing contractor during a winter break from college was the first step for Tantleff in a development career that now encompasses a $1.4-billion portfolio. Notable projects under Tantleff’s watch at Roseland Property — which has just been acquired by Mack-Cali Realty Co. — include a redevelopment effort in Morristown, NJ that features New Jersey Transit’s first Transit Village project, the 217-unit Highlands at Morristown Station rental apartment building; and, separately, the retooling of the former Epstein’s department store into the award-winning 40 Park multi-family condominium building and Metropolitan at 40 Park, a rental apartment community. Tantleff’s successful efforts in attracting regional and national retailers to the area have helped the projects revitalize and reenergize Downtown Morristown.
