The City of Hoboken is hosting a meeting about the development of 700 Jackson Street—the tall structure at Hoboken’s western edge, along the Palisades—which will include 2-acre resiliency park, 30,000 square feet of retail space, on-site parking garage, and 424 residential units (42 affordable housing units).
The imposing building has gone up over the past year and a half, with many residents expressing concern over the sheer size of the structure and the impact it may have on the infrastructure in the back end of town—particularly with the area’s perennial flooding issues.
The resiliency park will incorporate green infrastructure and underground detention systems to capture more than 450,000 gallons of stormwater runoff, in an effort to mitigate those flooding issues. It is the second of three resiliency parks planned for western Hoboken—the first being the Southwest Park and the third being the Northwest Park, which is in the design stage.
Bijou Properties will discuss construction progress and the updated timeline for completion of the 700 Jackson Street development project. PSE&G will discuss the utility restoration on 7th Street between Monroe Street and Jackson Street.
Residents are invited to participate in the meeting on October 29 at 7 p.m. at the Jubilee Center, 601 Jackson Street.
