HJ Development moving digs

In January, developer Henry Justin of HJ Development is moving his offices a little north to a building he owns at 261 West 35th Street.

The new 5,500-square-foot digs will occupy the entire top floor of the 16-story building, which is between Seventh and Eighth avenues.

Justin’s current offices are in a 3,500-square-foot space on the second floor of 115 West 30th Street, a building owned and managed by his family’s business, Justin Management. That location made it possible for Justin to work, essentially on site, when his company developed the Cass Gilbert condominium, across the street at 130 West 30th Street, between Sixth and Seventh avenues.

The West 35th Street space is convenient for Justin, who recently completed a 1,000-square-foot recording studio on the sixth floor of the building, which he plans to use for rehearsing and recording music. Justin is a former songwriter, having co-written more than a dozen recorded songs, including the 1977 hit “Get Up and Dance” on a record of the same name, performed by the Memphis Horns, and sung by the Doobie Brothers on the Dinah Shore show.
