The project architect and members of the development team will present the proposed redevelopment project and answer questions from members of the public.

The Hoboken City Council adopted the Redevelopment Plan for the Neumann Leathers Rehabilitation Area on December 2, 2015 and passed an amendment to the plan on first reading in March 2021. That plan amendment was tabled on second reading in order to negotiate stronger rent protections for the Industrial Arts community at Neumann Leathers. In March 2022, the City Council formally re-designated portions of the Neumann Leathers Rehabilitation Area as an Area in Need of Redevelopment.

The City has since been working with both the Industrial Arts tenants and the ownership group to explore permanent protections for the Industrial Arts community at Neumann Leathers, a core objective of the Redevelopment Plan, while evaluating the residential density and tax structure necessary to achieve this objective.
