Big Plans for Liberty Science Center Expansion

Big Plans for Liberty Science Center Expansion

SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

JERSEY CITY – The Jersey City Redevelopment Agency (JCRA) this week officially designated Liberty Science Center as the master developer for 16 acres of city-owned land adjacent to Liberty Science Center. This is the first and significant step in a commitment to support Liberty Science Center as the premier not-for-profit interactive science and technology center in the region. The land that the City has committed to this project is valued at more than $20 million dollars.

“The City designating this land to Liberty Science Center is a major departure from past practices of selling property to private developers and instead speaks to the City’s commitment to growing Liberty Science Center as we create a world class city,” said Mayor Steven M. Fulop.

Advancing the Fulop Administration’s vision of making Jersey City a leader for job growth and a magnet for new industries, Mayor Fulop and Liberty Science Center President and Chief Executive Officer Paul Hoffman announced today an ambitious plan to create a comprehensive science and technology campus in Jersey City.
