Hoboken Holds Virtual Council Meeting Tonight on Future of Marshall St. Substation Property

Community Invited to Provide Input at Public Meeting Tonight on Future of Marshall Street Substation Property

The City of Hoboken is holding a public meeting tonight (Wednesday) to discuss potential re-use and development opportunities for the property located at the site of the Marshall Street Substation, at the corner of 2nd and Marshall Streets. As a part of PSE&G’s resiliency efforts, the Marshall Street Substation (2nd Street between Marshall Street and Harrison Street) will be consolidated with the Madison Street Substation (the block of 11th Street and Madison Street). As a result, the City will own the approximately one acre of land that was previously occupied and utilized by PSE&G at Marshall Street.

A presentation will be provided on the Alternatives Analysis for the Marshall Street Substation that was prepared by Rutgers Graduate Students as part of their Spring 2020 studio course. Additional information about the Marshall Street Substation and the Alternatives Analysis can be found here: https://www.hobokennj.gov/resources/marshall-street-substation.

Members of the community are invited to provide input and comment at tonight’s meeting, beginning at 6:30 pm. The meeting will take place virtually and will be broadcasted on the City of Hoboken’s Facebook page.
