He worked as an independent real estate consultant, where he spent the majority of his time working for Forest City Enterprises on mixed use development projects in California, Nevada, Texas and Hawai‘i. He also worked at Allan D. Kotin & Associates, a Los Angeles-based real estate consulting firm specializing in public private-joint ventures.

Vanderboom earned a Master of Real Estate Development in 2007 from the University of Southern California and received his undergraduate degree in Business from USC in 2006. He was also a tight end on USC’s football team, winning two national championships and five Pac-10 championships.

“Nick epitomizes the vision, leadership and dedication we seek within our development team,” said David R.

The Howard Hughes Corporation currently owns three properties in Hawai‘i: ONE Ala Moana, Ward Centers and ranch land in Maui. ONE Ala Moana is a world class development of luxury condominiums above the Nordstrom parking structure at Ala Moana Center. In a joint venture with The MacNaughton Group and Kobayashi Group, the partnership recently began sales of the 23-story tower, which offers an ultra-luxury lifestyle to local and international residents. Ward Centers is a collection of retail and commercial properties centrally located between downtown Honolulu and Waikiki. In October 2012, the company - the largest private land owner in the Kaka‘ako district - unveiled a vision for Ward Village. The 9.3 million square-foot, mixed-use development will reshape the area into a dynamic, urban master planned community, with more than 4,000 residential units and over one million square feet of upscale retail and other commercial space.
