Hoboken, NJ and Jersey City, NJ
This project is a major development spanning multiple parcels in Hoboken and Jersey City. A new internal street highlights stronger connections to adjacent open space. An elevated landscape above the parking garage connects seamlessly to renovated office space and the high-rise residential office tower. In the initial master planning exercises, Roofmeadow worked with the developer, architect, and engineers to explore the strategic opportunities for the landscape to reinforce the value of the interior spaces, and to integrate stormwater opportunities into distinctive signature elements within the visible landscape.
Currently in design development, the new urban landscape will create a distinguishing and lively experience for pedestrians, while supporting the operations of a variety of mixed tenants, including retail, restaurants, office spaces, and medical services. An internal street will be reshaped and re-imagined as a pedestrian friendly event street, that extends as an elevated pier into an adjacent green space. A green Feature Stair links the streetscape intuitively up to the elevated park. The elevated park supports restaurants, entertainment, and community activities. An amenity roof at the penthouse level of the high-rise, includes a pool and terrace, with plantings inspired by coastal dune vegetation.
