Some of my readers asked me to post about the Willow14 project going up on the corner of Willow and 14th Street. I was looking online last night at their promo materials and learned a few interesting tidbits and a huge shocker. Look at this:
Do you see those huge towers on the western side of Hoboken? What is this exactly? And what do all those yellow numbers mean?
I blew it up and this is what I see:
- 900 Monroe – 114 units
- Lot 93 & 97 – 443 units
- Lot 103 – 80 units
- Lots 108 & 111 – 444 units
- Lot 112 – 204 units
- Lot 104 – 55 units
- Lot 114B – 44 units
- Lot 150 – 150 units
There are a few others with actual addresses but those buildings seem to already have been built. If this is what has been approved for future development, that is about 1400 new units. Many seem to be 12 stories. Nothing indicates whether they will be rental or condos. Does Hoboken really need over a thousand new units of housing? What will that do to traffic? To flooding? What will it do to the value of currently existing properties?
I have a call into the project manager to try to find out where this came from and what it means. But it was certainly a shocker to me – and a bit disturbing, I might add! You can click on the link above the photo to see the entire PDF.
