Pierson’s Central/North Jersey market specialist, Mackowski, elevated to director

Marlboro-based Pierson Commercial Real Estate on Monday said it elevated Robert Mackowski to director.

The Hudson County resident, who joined the firm in 2021, will continue to manage his diverse portfolio of retail properties while focusing on growing Pierson Commercial’s client base.

Mackowski marks Pierson Commercial’s latest promotion of in-house talent, as the firm continues to grow its retail-focused assignments throughout New Jersey, including the Hudson River waterfront.

“Rob, through his market knowledge, transactional expertise, client-focused mentality and drive to continuously develop new institutional level clients, has been an integral contributor toward our firm’s success,” Jason Pierson, president, said. “In doing so, he has paved the way for even greater accomplishments at a time when demand for retail across central and northern New Jersey continues to thrive, particularly in the established urban and suburban markets.”

An acknowledged leader in retail leasing and investment sales, Mackowski is one of the New Jersey Gold Coast’s premier brokers. During the course of his brokerage career thus far, he has arranged 55-plus leases totaling more than 160,000 square feet in Hoboken and Jersey City alone.

Mackowski has also been instrumental in securing and spearheading several high-profile assignments and transactions on behalf of Pierson Commercial throughout Hudson County. These include arranging an 8,000-square-foot lease at Haus25 with MexiModo – Cocina Mexicana & Tequilla Bar on behalf of Veris Residential Inc. in Jersey City and the $9 million sale of the former Capital One located at 301 Washington St., one of Hoboken’s premier corners, on behalf of Federal Realty.

In addition, Mackowski has recently solidified several new exclusive listings in Jersey City, including 475 Washington Blvd. and 244 Bay St.; in addition to growing his client base to include Advanced Realty, JEMB Realty, Tacombi, T-Mobile, Hammer & Nails and Sweathouz.
