New eminent domain twist

We've seen eminent domain used for hospitals and highways. More recently towns have used it controversially for sand dunes and hotel/conference centers. But, according a report in the Star-Ledger, the newest twist in New Jersey is that Irvington is considering using eminent domain as a tool to fight against foreclosures. Too far? Or better than some of the other uses of eminent domain?
