Honorees

Richard “Rick” CottonExecutive Director of The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey

About GJDC

GJDC stands at the forefront of the revitalization of Downtown Jamaica, laying the groundwork for more jobs, increased economic opportunity, and a better quality of life for the people who live and work here. 

Our projects have transformed the area around the Jamaica LIRR Station, paved the way for over a thousand affordable housing units, sparked construction of hundreds of hotel rooms and enabled a myriad of small businesses to obtain loans. This year alone we launched programming and a loan fund to invigorate the restaurant scene; we commissioned a digital art wall and activated a new public space with events featuring local arts and music; and in the fall we will break ground on Jamaica’s first coworking space with Gov. Cuomo. Now is the time to raise our commitment to telling a new story, rooted in shared values, about Jamaica, Queens. That is the core work of GJDC.
