The ultimate in urban neighborhood living was proposed on 42 acres by a consortium of local and national developers in response to the mandate of smart growth and transit-oriented development. The recommended design combines two urban neighborhoods and a mixed-use core, where you can live, work, shop, play, and attend school. A district where everyone is within walking distance of a new Hudson/Bergen light rail transit station with connections to the PATH and New York Waterways. Where parks and landscaped plazas are integrated into daily life. This urban design plan is in an approved redevelopment area containing over 4,200 urban homes in new and rehabilitated loft-type buildings and over four million square feet of commercial office space within mixed-use multifamily buildings. The emphasis is on the character and scale of the streets to insure walkability and community quality of life.
