JFRE Event Goes ‘Out of the Box’


On Feb. 22, JFRE (Jewish Federation Real Estate) held its Out of the Box and Outside the Core: Developers Transforming Neighborhoods event. More than 150 real estate professionals, including many of whom were new to JFRE, spent the morning networking and talking with three of Philadelphia’s most progressive developers who are working in emerging areas surrounding Center City.  The panelists were Ori Feibush, president and founder of OCF Realty, developer of many projects in Point Breeze; Craig Grossman, general partner of Arts & Crafts Holdings, who has had significant impact in Midtown Village; and David Waxman, founder and managing Partner of MMPartners, LLC, who discussed his projects in neighborhoods including Fairmount and Brewerytown.

The new NOTO entertainment venue hosted JFRE in its unique space. Former Top Chef contestant Jason Cichonski prepared a gourmet breakfast for the crowd.
