Who We Are

On December 4, 2013, Global City Regional Center, LLC (GCRC) received its designation as a United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) approved Regional Center pursuant to 8 C.F.R. § 204.6(m)(3). Initially, GCRC will focus its activities on the four-county region surrounding the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and two counties in southern New Jersey. As a regional center, GCRC will promote economic growth, improved regional productivity, job creation, and increased domestic capital investment within the proposed region by facilitating foreign investment through the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Visa Program of the USCIS. The funds from qualifying foreign investors will be used in job creating projects within GCRC’s proposed target industry clusters.

It’s Unique Niche Real estate Fund + Biopharma/Life Sciences Fund
GCRC will distinguish itself as the only regional center in the southeastern Pennsylvania/southern New Jersey that seeks diversified portfolio of job creating domestic businesses in: (a) real estate investment opportunities in community and economic development, not just public works projects; and (b) Biopharma/Life Sciences companies in the area. As an affiliate of JNA Capital, Inc., a real estate development firm with proven record of development projects in the region and a renowned community partner Philadelphia Chinatown Development Corporation (PCDC), GCRC will have a robust deal flow of qualifying real estate investments to offer its investors. In fall of 2016, GCRC added under its management team a Chief Life Sciences Business Advisor and a Chief Scientific Advisor to support its Life Sciences Fund.
