The City of Hoboken and LCOR will host a community meeting on Thursday, November 10 at 6 p.m. at the Multi-Service Center, 124 Grand Street, to discuss the redesign of Hudson Place as part of the Hoboken Connect Project. Hudson Place runs from Hudson Street to Warrington Plaza and serves as the gateway between Hoboken, the Hoboken Ferry Terminal, and the Hoboken Train Terminal.
The Redevelopment Agreement between the City and LCOR, adopted by City Council in July 2022 and fully executed in October 2022, requires that the redeveloper engages with the nine-member Hudson Place Design Task Force to develop three concepts for the redesign of Hudson Place and present the concepts at a public meeting.
On November 10, project redeveloper LCOR will present design concepts to the public, each of which envisions a shared street or “woonerf” designed to create a safe and welcoming pedestrian experience, as recommended by the Hoboken Yard Redevelopment Plan.
After the presentation, attendees will have an opportunity to comment and provide feedback on concept features, including public gathering space elements, green infrastructure, bicycle and pedestrian areas, historic preservation elements, material types, and more.
The role of the Task Force is to consider the feedback from the public and then provide a recommendation to the LCOR team to create a single final concept design.
The Task Force will then review the final concept and make its recommendation to the Mayor for a final design. Upon the Mayor’s approval, LCOR will create engineered drawings that will ultimately be presented to the Planning Board for a courtesy review.
Hudson Place construction is required to be completed before LCOR can receive a Certificate of Occupancy for the residential redevelopment site permitted by the Redevelopment Agreement.
