Site Preparation Underway at Hoboken’s Chambord Building, As Redevelopment Will Include Supermarket, Affordable Housing & Commercial Space

The city of Hoboken has updated information regarding the redevelopment of 38 Jackson Street.  The developers will be bringing in a supermarket, plus some affordable housing units and commercial space to the property.

Site preparation activities at the Chambord building at 38 Jackson Street began earlier this month, as the property owners move forward on a redevelopment project that will bring a new, 22,000-square-foot supermarket, commercial space, and 12 affordable housing units to the area. The redevelopers will also provide the City with $800,000, which will be used towards the construction of the 1-acre Southwest Resiliency Park expansion.

The Hoboken City Council approved the redevelopment agreement with 38 Jackson, LLC. on December 15, 2021, and Mayor Ravi Bhalla signed the agreement on January 14, 2022.

As stipulated in the redevelopment agreement, the property owners will preserve the historical elements of the Chambord building while integrating modern amenities to adaptively reuse the former My-T-Fine Pudding warehouse to create 123 residential units and ground floor retail.

Currently, the property owners are conducting asbestos abatement operations through a licensed New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) approved vendor per City and State construction codes and permitting by the NJDEP.

Asbestos abatement operations are scheduled to conclude on Friday. Demolition operations are scheduled to commence next month following additional City permit approvals.
