The Regional Plan Association (RPA) (2015-16)

Regional Plan Association (RPA) engaged BJH Advisors to conduct an analysis of commercial market opportunities for Jamaica, Queens, particularly those connected to John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK).  The analysis was designed to support the planning efforts of the Jamaica NOW Action Plan and the Greater Jamaican Development Corporation. BJH’s analysis focused on identifying retail, office, and industrial opportunities and unmet demand based on economic and real estate trend analysis and a literature review of airport-related economic development strategies and impacts. The resulting report and recommendations presented market-based strategies to leverage JFK airport to generate economic growth.
