New proposal for Hoboken’s southern border

The city of Hoboken and New Jersey Transit both presented plans at a council meeting Wednesday night for what they’d like to see built on the 52 acres owned by the transit agency along the city’s border with Jersey City.

 

A follow-up workshop for the public is tentatively scheduled for Sept. 12 at 7 p.m. at City Hall, and will include a question and answer period.

 

The area in question covers the downtown Hoboken train terminal and rail yards and the half-mile stretch encompassing the southern side of Observer Highway (to be Observer Boulevard).

 

NJ Transit put forth a proposal in 2008 that included a 70-story office tower, but Hoboken activists believed the development was too large.
