Success Stories

From Historic Mill to Apartments, 44 Beech Street

The redevelopment of the former William Strange mill, which is expected to be complete in 2016, is the latest example of Alma Realty's conviction that "Paterson can be a profitable place for real estate investment."  Alma Realty has already built the Center City Mall in the heart of downtown, and revamped various structures apartments and commercial spaces. We are very proud of Alma Realty for their continued success in Paterson.

Dominican Express, Located: 153 Ellison Street, Paterson

DE 1Dominican Express opened their doors as a small Dominican Restaurant in April 2012. The owner, Hector Diaz saw an exciting location within the Urban Enterprise Zone and the amenities that are offered. Mr. Diaz was given a small business loan which has enabled him to hire additional employees, make deliveries in and around the downtown area as well as open mornings for the breakfast crowd. He is now able to serve breakfast empanadas, mangu (green plantains) and a variety of breakfast sandwiches. He was able to not only purchase a vehicle for his deliveries but new ovens, refrigeration and fresh juice machines. The new hours of operation are 7:00am to 6:00pm and they now offer more seating for patrons. Dominican Express is still serving up their famous chicken/beef empanadas as well as their luncheon special of chicken and rice. The Paterson UEZ is excited to help this small business grow and continue to grow in the City.
