Built to Last
Diverse project pipeline, decades of experience remain key to Rotwein+Blake’s success
REAL ESTATE NJ, December 4, 2020—It certainly isn’t the first crisis that Rotwein+Blake has experienced as a business, so it’s only natural for Lance Blake to compare the pandemic to “every downturn, every crash, every real estate bubble” that the architecture firm has seen during its 65 years in existence.
Fortunately, he said, the practice has weathered the storm.
“Other than the personal, emotional and internal side of it with employees, and the psychological aspect of it, I would say from a business perspective, it’s not nearly as bad as 2008, 2000, 1990 or 1982,” said Blake, the president and second-generation leader of the Livingston-based firm.
