Dec, 2017 Issue

When Rami Batarseh purchased a run-down building on River Road four years ago, he had no vision of what it would become. As an investment opportunity, the building, a former chicken slaughterhouse and circus animal-housing facility (dating back to the 1800s), needed a revamp.

Not with the Jordan staff, or family and friends, because when it comes to his personal life, he has no interest in debating politics.
