Community redevelopment in a former industrial district / Completion 2001

Concept designs for nine city blocks with a program of over 800 apartments, parking, retail and community facilities, and an urban park were approved for development by the City of Hoboken.  The sites are located in the Northwest Redevelopment Plan, a blighted industrial district in a flood plain rezoned to promote the development of a new mixed-use residential district that relates to the scale of adjacent low rise residential neighborhoods.

In response to the new zoning requirements and design goals, typical blocks consist of ground floor parking, and 5 floors of housing above organized around a central courtyard roof terrace, and street facade stoops that recall traditional rowhouses in adjacent Hoboken neighborhoods. A long needed food market with parking and a vest pocket park is proposed as centerpiece of the plan. The latter was completed in 2004.
