The Port Master Plan 2050 is a comprehensive and flexible roadmap that charts the course for future growth and development at the Port of New York and New Jersey.

The 30-year plan takes a holistic look at the Port, including cargo container facilities, automobile terminals, dry and liquid bulk cargo operations, cruise terminals and ferry landings, mapping out the next generation of land-use and infrastructure development projects, allowing the port to remain among the nation’s leading maritime gateways.

Primary Objectives:

  • Engage stakeholders and provide opportunities for growth
  • Serve as an economic engine for the region
  • Promote safe, resilient, and environmentally sustainable operations
  • Improve commercial value of the port

Five Guiding Principles:

  • Ensuring Sustainability and Resiliency in all operations and future developments
  • Promoting Regional Economic Generation
  • Establishing State of the Art facilities
  • Providing a Platform for Partnership for all local stakeholders
  • Shaping Future Growth of the region

The Port Master Plan 2050 follows an extensive 2½ year review of more than 3,000 acres of port property and included more than 45 presentations to regional stakeholders and community groups, including more than 50 planning workshops, and interaction with nearly 500 stakeholders.

Short- and long-term actions proposed for each of the port’s five facilities—Port Newark, Elizabeth Port Authority Marine Terminal, Port Jersey Port Authority Marine Terminal, Howland Hook Marine Terminal and Brooklyn Port Authority Marine Terminal — can be found in the Port Master Plan 2050 and the interactive StoryMap of the plan below.
