Economic Development
The public investment provided for in this plan would act as a catalyst to generate an estimated 4.5 million square feet of new commercial office space, creating 18,500 office jobs and 8,000 construction jobs. It would add some 1,000 new housing units and result in the addition of new, vibrant public spaces and cultural resources.

Traffic and Parking
The city is funding a separate, long-term comprehensive transportation blueprint: a traffic and parking analysis of Downtown Brooklyn and surrounding areas. This effort would enable communities and elected officials to participate in the transportation planning process. In addition, a senior staff position at the Department of Transportation will be created to improve traffic conditions in Downtown Brooklyn.
