A new neighborhood retail center / Completion 2004
Planned as the centerpiece for the Northwest Redevelopment residential district, a former industrial area in Hoboken, NJ, the 100,000 SF retail center includes a supermarket, retail stores, offices, parking, and an urban park.
Hoboken has long needed a modern supermarket, but until now lacked a sufficiently large site. The big box nature of the supermarket is mitigated by a prominent clock tower and arcade at the north, a 3-story office building at the south, large windows at the east, diagonally shaped enclosed loading docks at the west facing an adjacent warehouse district, and by the use of brick and cast stone in harmony with the proposed residential buildings around it. The Architect worked closely with the Hoboken planning consultant to realize the urban design goals of the Northwest Redevelopment Plan.
