Public Session Scheduled on Redevelopment Plan For Hoboken’s Washington Street CVS Property

The City of Hoboken will host a public outreach session for the creation of a Redevelopment Plan for the Washington Street CVS property and surface parking areas (Washington-Observer Gateway Redevelopment Plan) on Thursday, October 20, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Newark Street Plaza located in front of the CVS Pharmacy Building (70 Hudson St.) near the intersection of Washington Street and Newark Street.

The community is invited to stop by anytime between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. to learn more about the potential development concepts and provide feedback on their preferred design features and redevelopment scenarios for the Rehabilitation Area.

On May 20, 2020, the Hoboken City Council designated the area (which includes Block 210, Lots 1-16 and Block 210.01, Lots 26-29, the entire alley way between blocks 210 and 210.01, and adjacent rights-of-way of Washington Street, Newark Street, Hudson Street and Observer Highway) as an “Area in Need of Rehabilitation.” The L-shaped Rehabilitation Area is comprised of the building currently operating as a CVS Pharmacy and the adjacent parking lots, and does not include the buildings on the block fronting Hudson Street (Starbucks, Green Rock Tap & Grill, etc.)
