PANYNJ 2050 Port Master Plan
Released in July 2019 by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the 2050 Port Master Plan establishes a comprehensive 30-year roadmap that charts the course for future growth and development at the Port of New York and New Jersey. Supported by an informed and robust decision-making process, the plan aims to increase operational efficiency, optimize land utilization, reduce environmental impacts, and enhance revenue opportunities through sustainable growth for the port. AKRF contributed to the preparation of the plan as part of the consultant team. We provided land use planning and environmental analysis services, including an evaluation of and presentation on potential sea level rise at port facilities. The master planning team reviewed more than 3,000 acres of port property and participated in over 45 presentations to regional stakeholders and community groups.
