What could go wrong...

Seriously, affordable housing is expensive. $100 million for the lot plus remaining remediation plus infrastructure for another $70 million or so plus $200,000 for each affordable unit, with the city wanting at least a couple thousand. Then throw in interest and other fees.

That's well over half a billion that will need to be subsidized by the market rate condos/rentals!
i too think this is a foolish idea. isn't there enough affordable housing in bela, greenville, and other nearby cities.

Also, I find it rich that Republicans are trying to lecture anyone on dealing with Iran. Saint Reagan illegally and secretly sold weapons to Iranian Islamist terrorists that had been taking Americans hostage. Then he gave that money to Nicaraguan terrorists that laid landmines all over the country killing countless innocents, and also smuggled cocaine into the US.

And yet, I never seem to hear a single bad word about Reagan. He's hailed as a hero of the right, while Obama is derided for settling a 50 year old debt with money that Iran was already owed, in good faith negotiations.

Maybe look into ways to cut spending, we sure don't have a revenue problem, we have a spending problem.
if there was so much fat to be cut, why didn't Christie cut it? are you saying Christie was a failure?

good. but i would be in favor of something stipulating that if one willingly choses not to forego health insurance that one has to wait 5 years to get it and that such persons can not avail themselves to the emergency room.

i know this might sound harsh and i do think medicaid should be expanded, but there are many people who are opposed to insurance mandates on philosophical grounds and refuse to buy health insurance. hopefully, my plan would address their concerns

this makes sense. i remember the owner of the now since closed pet store on newark avenue telling me that he was closing since his rent was going up and he didn't feel like working "for the landlord"

UGH. I wish people would stop with this type of comment. The reval is REVENUE NEUTRAL. The city is collecting the same amount of money post reval as it did before the reval. There is no such thing as extra money because of the reval.
i agree with you but i'm sure they left a little wiggle room otherwise everytime someone appeals and wins, the rate for someone else would go up. of course, if there are too may sucessful appeals, then that "wiggle room" would be gone. it is just common sense that there would be contingencies, at least imo

Surely you aren't suggesting that progressive urban development shouldn't happen so that a store, or at least a store's customers, can partake in illegal parking? Bay Street was a traffic nightmare that should have been enforced a decade (or more) ago. That they'd jump ship so soon (if this rumor is true) is shortsighted, and that they think they're above the law in order to generate business is laughable.


I'm staring that the owners said they are going to eventually close due to the plaza. Nothing more than that!


interesting, but how do owners know that the pedestrian plaza will slow their business. maybe the rent will be too damn high if their lease is up for renewal. whenever, I've gone there, I've only seen people arriving by foot, not getting out of cars.

Jersey City pitches $180M plan to buy 100-acre riverfront site

Updated 5:29 PM; Posted 3:33 PM
By Terrence T. McDonald tmcdonald@jjournal.com

The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY — Jersey City is considering whether to buy the 100-acre Bayfront site on the Hackensack River waterfront, a potentially $180 million plan that Mayor Steve Fulop told council members would be an "aggressive" albeit expensive way to ensure a large amount of affordable housing on the city's west side.


http://www.nj.com/hudson/index.ssf/20 ... e.html#incart_river_index



"The city would act as the master developer, potentially divvying the land up among multiple developers."

#notoriety



What could possibly go wrong with the city acting as the master developer?

Serious question: isn't 105 MM for 100 acres a little too much? Or, is that the going rate for crap land located in the middle of nowhere? I truly don't have the slightest clue regarding valuation for this type of lot in such a location.
i'm all for affordable housing but $180 million, even $100 million sounds like a lot of money. people are priced out of markets all the time, why can't these people who are being hurt by gentrification move to kearny or paterson or bayonne or the bronx?

Developer breaks ground on 309-unit project in Jersey City's Lafayette section
Updated 3:08 PM; Posted 3:01 PM

By Ron Zeitlinger The Jersey Journal

Ironstate Development Company, known for its Downtown Jersey City projects, broke ground this week on a mixed-use building in the Lafayette neighborhood.

The $84 million project, undertaken with joint venture partners Brookfield Property Group and Landmark Developers, is expected to include 309 residential units, 3,800 square feet of street-level retail space and 8,000 square feet of commercial space that will serve as the new headquarters for the Jersey City Redevelopment Agency.

The planned five-story building, at 100 Monitor Street, will occupy a now-vacant 2.7-acre site near the Liberty State Park Hudson-Bergen Light Rail Station and within walking distance of the Liberty Science Center and Liberty State Park.
