Borough Wide

Standing O welcomes Caroline Pardo as the new managing director of Commercial Leasing at TerraCRG, the borough’s leading commercial real estate brokerage and advisory firm.

A pioneer of the borough’s commercial market boom, Caroline brings 17 years of retail and office leasing experience. She helped curate some of the most vibrant and successful neighborhoods and projects in the burg, including, Dumbo, Downtown, and Industry City.

“We are fortunate to have Caroline join our team and lead our continued expansion,” said Ofer Cohen, founder and chief executive officer of TerraCRG.

In this new position, she will focus on building new services that are a natural extension of the TerraCRG platform and lead the development and growth of the commercial leasing team, evolving owner asset monetization and leasing in Brooklyn.

Caroline previously held roles with Two Trees Management, Jamestown Properties, and Ingram and Hebron.

Specializing in the borough’s marketplace, her success in real estate can be attributed to her extensive local market knowledge, superior marketing strategies and uncompromised integrity. She also understands all sides of the leasing business, having spent significant time with developers, retail and office tenants. She also understands the needs of small businesses. As an owner and founder of a growing brand of indoor children’s playgrounds, called Recess, she is well versed on consulting and guiding smaller businesses as they look to grow.

Standing O wishes Caroline good luck and says, “Long may you direct.”

Big money

The State University New York Downstate Medical Center has received a five-year federal grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) in the sum of $3.2 million buckaroos. The money will fund the Comprehensive National Health Careers Opportunity Program (HCOP) Academy at SUNY Downstate. The Office of Diversity Education and Research in the College of Medicine and the Arthur Ashe Institute of Urban Health will work in collaboration on the HCOP Academy to attract, recruit, and retain economically and educationally disadvantaged students from Brooklyn.

“We’re delighted to partner with our colleagues to address the need for STEM pipeline programs,” said SUNY Downstate president Dr. Wayne J. Riley. “This HRSA grant affords us opportunities to reach students who might otherwise not have considered the variety of career paths healthcare offers.”

Scholarships will be offered to health profession degree students from North and Central Brooklyn communities to support students entering the College of Medicine and the College of Health-Related Professions.
