NJBiz Announces 2017 "Power 100" List - Tony Coscia Holds #7 Position

Monday, February 6, 2017

Today, NJBiz released its annual review of the top 100 power brokers in New Jersey. Our Partner, Tony Coscia, held the #7 position, which he also occupied in 2016. NJBiz interviewed a number of sources and offered the following in support of Tony's nomination:

"The Gateway project, the building of a new tunnel to Manhattan, is bigger than just the biggest infrastructure project the state has ever seen. “If it goes through, it’s the biggest construction project in the country,” one insider said. “We’re talking $25 to $30 billion dollars. An incredible amount of jobs and contracts.” And Coscia is running point. “There’s really no better choice. Tony has the political clout to get everyone to the table and the knowledge to understand the details of the project.” It’s all in day’s work for Coscia, who runs Windels, Marx, Lane & Mittendorf and oversees Amtrak. Said another: “In light of the incontrovertible connection between mass transit and the viability of numerous New Jersey businesses and the dependency that thousands of New Jersey residents have on the train network, there is no doubt that Coscia’s Amtrak role has far-reaching consequences, and therefore his inherent power. However, with the new administration in Washington, he will have to use his political skills to move the Gateway project forward and not have it become a missed opportunity, as the ARC tunnel did.”
