Event Details

Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. will be coming to present on new development opportunities in The Bronx. Over the last few years, The Bronx has seen a resurgence, including a major increase in new construction. The Borough President will be speaking about past successes and upcoming opportunities for New York’s design community.


Ruben Diaz Jr. first entered public office as a member of the New York State Assembly in 1997, and is currently serving his third full term as Bronx Borough President, having been reelected in November 2017 with more than 88 percent of the vote.

As borough president, Ruben Diaz Jr. has led the implementation of a robust agenda—on economic development, housing, health and wellness, education, and public safety—in every corner of the borough. Since 2009, the borough has seen more than $15.4 billion in total development, as well as more than 84.8 million square feet of total development construction. This includes more than 36,400 new units of housing, most of it built for lower-income families. Nearly 120,000 Bronx residents have jobs today than when he first took office.

A lifelong resident of the Bronx, Borough President Diaz lives in the Southeast Bronx with his wife Hilda Gerena Diaz. They have two sons, Ruben Diaz III and Ryan Isaiah Diaz. He graduated from Lehman College, City University of New York, with a Bachelor’s degree in political theory.
