Continue a legacy of development in Jackson Heights
The Jackson Heights neighborhood of New York was originally constructed a century ago by the Queensboro Corporation as a planned town to house wealthier and middle-income New Yorkers. The original streets of buildings from this period have been designated as historic districts by the City of New York, and the neighborhood remains a classic area of the city, partly due to the intentional layout and public plazas. A large influx of Hispanic and Latino immigrants, who make up about 55% of the local population today, constituted the second wave of development in Jackson Heights, with schools, businesses, and cultural attractions springing up to support the local culture. With generations of new arrivals leaving their mark on this historic area of the city, Jackson Heights continues to invite new projects and opportunities, as the city has endorsed the EB-5 immigrant investor plan as an opportunity for growth and inclusion.
With an average household income of $57,000 yearly, Jackson Heights’s population of roughly 110,000 stands to benefit from outside funding for local projects. Affiliating with the EB5AN to bring development to Jackson Heights will spell success for you, your EB-5 project, foreign investors, and New York City locals alike.
