Jersey City's Innovative New Affordable Housing Plan Might Actually Work

September 3, 2015

The city wants to steer mixed-income development to all its neighborhoods with clever tax incentives.

“​[The PILOT plan] been instrumental for moving housing away from the waterfront, which was the original location of the market housing,” says James Hughes, dean of the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers University, who is familiar with the 2013 policy’s outcomes. Hughes gives the example of Journal Square, a neighborhood that was languishing before PILOT but is now hosting new development.
