Progress to the Tune of Billions of Dollars

The public and private sectors are currently investing billions of dollars toward transforming and growing National Landing into a paradigm for 21st century urban centers. Over the next few years, the area’s residents and businesses will benefit from an expansion and revitalization of its transportation infrastructure as a result of more than $3 billion in public sector funding. National Landing will also be home to an enlivened streetscape guided by intelligent planning; enhanced parks and green spaces; and new experiential retail. These changes will improve walkability and quality of life for the 26,000 residents who live here today, while attracting newcomers to the area. These enhancements will further solidify National Landing as a community where creators, trailblazers, and entrepreneurs want to live and build their businesses.
