Hinchliffe Stadium Opens

Hinchliffe Stadium, one of the last surviving stadiums of segregated baseball’s Negro Leagues, opened this week for the first time since 1997 after the completion of a $103 million renovation project. The historic stadium in Paterson hosted Opening Day on Sunday for the Frontier League’s New Jersey Jackals, who will play home games at Hinchliffe Stadium this season after relocating from Montclair State University. Of Counsel Baye Adofo-Wilson also serves as CEO of BAW Development, where he developed the concept, studies, plans and financing for the stadium and oversaw the redevelopment of the entire Hinchliffe Stadium Neighborhood restoration and mixed-use project.

Post Polak Opens Doors to New Wellness/Recharge Room


Post Polak has determined that a key goal is to have its office environment be such that every firm employee looks forward to being in the office. To that end, and to blunt some of the difference between working in the office and working from home, the firm has conceptualized and designed a Wellness/Recharge Room in the office.  

The room includes the following amenities:

  • Zero Gravity Omni massage chair
  • Reclining chaise lounge
  • Reading and floor pillows
  • Essential oils diffuser
  • Literature and art to promote calm and wellness
  • Yoga mats
  • Specialized lighting and
  • Air-purifying plants

Attorneys and staff members are encouraged to use the room when they need a break or a change of scenery. 

Post Polak’s Wellness/Recharge Room is being inaugurated on March 20.

Land Use Practice on the Move

In case you missed it, we are proud to share the news that Baye Adofo-Wilson, Of Counsel at Post Polak, was recently recognized by NJBiz magazine as #9 in their Commercial Real Estate Power 50 for his work as CEO of BAW Development, where he developed the concept, studies, plans and financing and now oversees the $94 million-dollar redevelopment of the Hinchliffe Stadium Neighborhood restoration and mixed-use project in Paterson. Read the full article here.

You may not know that Baye was assisted by Marsha Moore, Head of our Land Use Department, who secured the land use entitlements for Hinchliffe Stadium – securing the right to restore the 7,800 seat stadium and build a six-story mixed use building. Now, with construction nearing completion, Doug Sherman and our Hospitality team are consulting on placement of alcohol beverage licenses in the stadium and surrounding development.

Our Land Use team has helped our developer and hospitality clients from purchase of property to lease negotiations, from obtaining site plan approvals to securing alcohol licensing for restaurant slabs. In addition to having practitioners intimately familiar and actively involved on the developer side, we also have attorneys who represent land use boards. And we take particular pride in our nimbleness and ability to assist clients more efficiently than larger firms.

Post Polak is uniquely positioned to assist our hospitality industry clients in various aspects of their businesses. With long experience in the industry and practical understanding of development, we can assist in the development of a project from concept inception to shovels in the ground. Whether you are evaluating site suitability or securing zoning entitlements, we can help.
