Speaker Bio
Born and raised in Omaha Nebraska, Jay has been in the commercial real estate business for 20 years. The first 10 of those years was as a commercial real estate broker specializing in both office leasing and multi-family investment sales. In 2014 Jay Lund and Matt Dwyer started GreenSlate Development to begin work on what is now known as the Blackstone District. Directly adjacent to Nebraska’s largest economic generator, UNMC, and just west of midtown and downtown, Blackstone is now considered one of Omaha’s most successful urban in-fill re-developments. GreenSlate has completed over $250M in development over that time. This includes the creation of over 700 new or renovated housing units, 30 new and locally owned small businesses producing over $30M in annual sales revenue, and the historic renovation of the former Blackstone Hotel now the Kimpton Cottonwood Hotel.

In 2017 Jay started a campaign known as Modern Streetcar Advocates to educate Omaha on the benefits of the modern streetcar system in the core of our City. Jay also serves on both the Metro Transit Authority as well as being a founding member of the Blackstone Business Improvement District. Lastly, Jay is working to create a local District Council of the Urban Land Institute (ULI) to better bring national best practices for development to Nebraska; and to create additional education, networking, and community involvement opportunities for our CRE community.
