Maraziti Falcon Represented the City of Hoboken as Special Redevelopment Counsel, in an Approval that will Transform a Former Amazon Warehouse
As Special Redevelopment Counsel, Maraziti Falcon recently represented the City of Hoboken in connection with a redevelopment project that will transform a portion of Hoboken’s western edge area.
Approved by the City Council in December, the designated redevelopers will transform an existing Amazon Warehouse into three Silver LEED-certified residential mixed-use buildings containing 675 residential units (10% affordable) and nearly 50,000 SF of new retail/commercial space, as well as green roofs and stormwater management features which will address at least 359,000 gallons of stormwater.
The Redevelopment Agreement includes a community benefit to the City in the total amount of $15 million, which will be used to construct a new multi-modal Green Circuit Path adjacent to the buildings, which will include a protected bike lane and pedestrian pathway, and the remainder of the funds will be utilized to improve/create a 1.4 acre resiliency park at nearby 800 Monroe.
It was our pleasure to work with the City to negotiate the Redevelopment Agreement for this transformative and environmentally resilient redevelopment project.
