"Let Your Voices be Heard!" 


By Danielle Douglas, The Queens Connection Team

Over the past fifteen years, there has been a focus on the downtown area of Jamaica. As a result, there has been significant public investment. Major investments include the $350 million AirTrain terminal that connects Jamaica to JFK Airport; an expansive rezoning in 2007 that promoted density around the AirTrain terminal, a $153 million commitment from the City of New York through the Jamaica NOW!

Action Plan, and a $10 million investment commitment through the Downtown Revitalization Initiative from New York State.  As a result of the public investment activity,  there has been over $1 billion of planned or completed private investment, leading to more than 1,500 new apartments, 2,000 hotel rooms, and 200,000 square feet of commercial space completed and pending in the downtown area.

In addition to the economic development activity taking place in Downtown Jamaica, John F. Kennedy (JFK) Airport will also be undergoing a major renovation which will be a $10 billion dollar project over a (10) ten year period. The JFK Project has the potential to have a major impact on our community  as a whole for generations to come.
