Letter: Jersey City’s Affordable Housing Crisis: Close Loopholes for Developers, Protect the Public Interest
Jersey City's inclusionary zoning ordinance is a weak piece of legislation, seemingly selling out the public in favor of developer relationships and profits.
The decision caps an eight-year legal battle and will create 56 affordable housing units within four Hoboken properties.
Whitlock Mills has one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments for rent with affordable housing options available now and market-rate rentals coming soon.
The council voted 7-2 to introduce a 20 percent affordable housing requirement on all new developments over 15 units, but amendments looking to eliminate several carve-outs in the law were rejected for now.
12 acres of land in Monmouth County will soon be home to a four-story building filled with apartments set aside for former military members, some of whom are transitioning from homelessness.
The project, which is adaptively reusing an old Wonder Bread factory into 83 condominiums and retail space, looks to deliver their first homes during the middle of 2021.
Two developers are teaming up to overhaul a prominent housing complex that will preserve 406 units of affordable housing for the next few decades.
A developer is proposing a project with 18 units on property owned by the Jersey City Redevelopment Agency, but it is not yet clear how much of the building would include “affordable housing.”
A proposal that would transform almost two acres along the city’s western fringe includes 17 units for homeless veterans and $3 million towards the construction of a community center and pool that the city currently lacks.
A high-rise mixed-use complex is being proposed for an industrial area near the New Jersey Turnpike in the small Bergen County village of Ridgefield Park.
