Carlo Scissura, who was recently named the president and CEO of the New York Building Congress, has a positive outlook on the new year.
“Building Congress is very simple, we build the five boroughs and we build the state. We are excited that our new president is talking infrastructure. Chuck Schumer’s talking infrastructure. Andrew Cuomo’s talking infrastructure. Bill de Blasio’s talking infrastructure. So the Building Congress will take the lead,” he said.
“We will look at ways to continue to build New York, create jobs, create projects not just of tomorrow, but really of the future and really become the thought leader on anything that has to do with building New York. It’s that simple.”
Scissura made the comments during the Real Estate Board of New York’s 121st Annual Banquet. During the event, REBNY honored leaders such as Department of City Planning Director Carl Weisbrod, Forest City Ratner Companies’ MaryAnne Gilmartin and SL Green Realty Corporation’s Marc Holliday.
