HOBOKEN—The city of Hoboken has released its long-researched redevelopment study of the northwestern end of town. The 163-page study spans 14th through 16th streets in Hoboken and determines whether 53 different properties are deemed in need of redevelopment. The study also lists the owners for the various properties.
Next, the Planning Board will schedule a public hearing to determine if the area meets the criteria of an area in need of redevelopment.
Over the years, that part of town has been the subject of various suggestions and proposals. The Rockefeller Group in New York City has been buying properties in the area and at one time proposed a tall office tower. Also, Councilwoman Beth Mason has said that she’d like to see a minor league baseball stadium there.
Rockefeller owns several properties there. What do they plan to do with their land? And what does the city want done? Watch for a detailed story in an upcoming Hoboken Reporter. To read the study click here.
