Mission 50 has appointed Claire Pedulla to the newly-created position of director of community. She will be responsible for spearheading the firm’s efforts to create an experience that fosters productivity, flexibility and community in a reimagined workplace environment.
Owned and managed by JDA Group LLC (JDA), the Mission 50 building — formerly the Hoboken (New Jersey) Business Center — is located at 50 Harrison Street. The 80,000-square-foot boutique office property offers traditional for-lease office space and is home to the “original” Mission 50 co-working space, founded in 2011 by JDA CEO Greg Dell’Aquila.
In 2020, Dell’Aquila launched a year-long initiative to transform the building into a unified community under the Mission 50 brand umbrella. The multi-million-dollar renovation included expanding the co-working space to 20,000 square feet from 3,000 square feet and dedicating the remaining 60,000 square feet to private for-lease offices.
Pedulla’s previous positions include midtown manager and community manager at The Yard in New York City. She has also served as a creative consultant to the hospitality industry and an executive operations associate with Topology in Newark, New Jersey, and holds a BFA from Syracuse University.
