    Hoboken Terminal And Railyard Redevelopment Plan Hoboken Terminal And Railyard Redevelopment Plan Presentation Transcript

    • Hoboken Terminal & Yard Redevelopment Plan Analysis & Framework Plan The City Of Hoboken FXFOWLE ARCHITECTS, LLP 19 June 2008
    • The great urban theorist, Lewis Mumford, noted in the book “The City in History” that “The main gate (of a city) offered the first greeting to the traveler. One entered through its triumphal arch, with turrets and towers often vying, with those of the cathedral or town hall. The City of Hoboken and NJ Transit have made tremendous strides to begin to reinstate the station and surrounding area back to its former glory. Nevertheless, there is a lot more that needs to be accomplished. The purpose of this presentation is to share our understanding of the site; delin- eate the public improvements that are expected to be gained from its redevel- opment; and to define a planning framework, which will leverage desired public improvements. Our framework involves building from the historical context of the station area, enhancing infrastructure, and connecting the site to the city. This is important because a successful plan integrates history, constraint, community need and current market conditions to generate an economically and environmentally sustainable plan that will enhance the quality of life for years to come.

    • Height Transition
    • Hoboken.. on the edge
    • As this presentation has shown, Hoboken is on the edge of.... - Completing the restoration of Terminal... - Redefining the gateway to the city... - Providing significant public improvements to the city. But none of this can happen without significant development on the railyards. The framework that we present here defines a development approach that maximizes public improvements while minimizing adverse impacts on the com- munity. We look forward to your questions and comments.
