History and Corporate Structure:

Since establishing Cardinale Enterprises in 1983, Vito F. Cardinale has successfully steered the growth of the company. The firm has expanded its expertise in the packaging of real estate transactions for third-party development by undertaking the construction of commercial properties for its own real estate portfolio. Nearly fifteen years ago, Cardinale relocated its base of operations from Staten Island, N.Y., to Red Bank, N.J. - and then to Ocean County, N.J., and began focusing on the development of premier mixed-use community centers in New Jersey. The founders’ entrepreneurial spirit and progressive vision has become a blueprint for the firm’s continuing success.

Cardinale employs a talented staff of in-house professionals who are driven by a passion for quality and a dedication to performance. The management team has more than 100 years of combined experience in the industry. Cardinale Enterprises also has formed joint venture partnerships with companies who are leaders in their industries.
