Developers already have eyes set on the former Waverly yards site where the airport rail link station is located. That huge undeveloped track would see new apartments, hotels, offices etc.. spring up around a new centralized terminal. As part of the PATH extension to EWR they will make the rail link station open to the public, allowing access to Amtrak, NJ Transit and PATH.
I forgot about this plan. It's super ambitious, but also incredible urban planning. Is it still being considered or is it just a pipe dream?
This is interesting. I forgot about the old Conrail Waverly Yards. The PATH extension is supposed to go thru that area. But it could be developed.
As far as moving the airport westward (US 1&9) could be re-routed. The plan sounds good in theory, but what about the Anheuser-Busch brewery just south of the airport?
