many locals think so.. because taxes are jumping up but the city officials are not releasing much info on the projects ongoing because they don't want big firms taking over it like they did with hoboken.. as you might know the entire seaport section is under development, lots of city money is being invested for safety..

one of the things that many don't know about hoboken is that to get rid of all the low income home owners, the city raised taxes making their mortgage go higher to the point that they had to sell their properties.. so higher income people can move in.. this is exactly what's happening in Elizabeth.. of course it did not happened over night in Hoboken so it's not going to happen overnight in Elizabeth neither..

This project has been around for such a long time. Have not seen any type of movement except for some heavy machinery arriving to the area. Hopefully, past events have no marred this project. It's quite beautiful.

Location: Elizabeth, ,NJ
Project Cost: $17,850,000
Est. Start: May 2007

This complex is composed of 49,360SF of retail/commercial space, a 11,124SF Pharmacy, a 21,123SF Supermarket, and 61,000SF in 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments.

Highland Port Development Corporation was chosen as the designated builder of the Elizabeth Seaport Revitalization Plan.

Thanks! Maybe I should. I usually scower the net or sometimes on lazy Sundays, I'll drive around developments and hopefully see a sign up advertising the developers, construction group, etc. and work from there.

City Hall rarely releases any information - bugs me. I end up doing the investigating.
