Founding and offices[edit]

KRE was founded in 1979 as SK Properties and re-branded in 2010.[2][3][4] The founder, Murray Kushner, and president, Jonathan Kushner, are family of Charles Kushner and his son, Jared Kushner, of Kushner Properties.[5]


KRE has developed projects throughout the Northeast Corridor, with several located in Downtown Jersey City.[6][7][8] In July, 2014, the company began construction on the first phase of Journal Squared, a residential development adjacent to the Journal Square Transportation Center. The project will be constructed in three phases and is approved for a total of 1,838 units, including a 70-story building, which will be the tallest building in Jersey City if built.[9][10][11][12][13]
