Where are they now: Jim Stuckey

Develop Don't Destroy Brooklyn, Where is Stuckey?

We found Jim Stuckey!
...

Where is he now? Where has he gone to face those challenges? He is now partner at Verdant Properties, where his profile touts his service for Forest City Ratner and the Atlantic Yards stewardship.
...

Mr. Stuckey should feel free to use DDDB as a reference for his work doing "sustainable, harmonious development"...we have much to say about his efforts with that Atlantic Yards proposal.

Atlantic Yards Report, Former FCR executive Stuckey aims to cash in on insider info

The more important asset Verdant brings, however, may be the inside track. To quote the company's web site:
With over three decades of proven experience, and relationships with property owners and tenants; brokers and appraisers; architects and attorneys; title companies and accountants; and, lenders and investors – the principals of VERDANT PROPERTIES, LLC™ frequently learn of opportunities to acquire properties long before their competitors, and often times, these assets are never publicly marketed.
(Emphasis added)

Remember, Forest City Ratner was anointed developer of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority's Vanderbilt Yard 18 months before an RFP was issued.
