Transit-Oriented Redevelopment Amidst New Jersey’s Housing Litigation Mess

April 16, 2018
8:30 amto12:00 pm

What are the challenges inherent in incorporating affordable housing as part of transit-oriented development? How can municipalities and developers succeed in striking the right balance of scale and density in the face of uncertain affordable housing obligations? Is there any help available from the State in trying to bridge these challenges? And, of course, what is the current state of affordable housing in New Jersey (litigation and otherwise) and where are things heading in 2018- – particularly in light of Judge Jacobson’s decision in the Mercer County Trial which may be poised to have statewide impact.

Join ULI NNJ and come hear these questions discussed from the perspective of Mayors, developers and industry leaders in the trenches.   AICP CM Pending.
