Hoboken Condos Sales & Activity – Week of June 8, 2011

The Hoboken Rental Market on the Rise

The blog Housingwire.com has a post that says the rental markets are about to explode with some cities seeing a 25% increase.  I can tell you unequivocally that we cannot keep rental units listed in my office because they get rented by the first person who sees them.  Yes, the Hoboken rental market is booming. Now if only Hoboken could get out from under this rent control quagmire once and for all.

New Luxury Rental Building at 14th & Willow

willow It looks like environmental remediation work may soon be underway at Willow14.  Advance Realty is building a LEED certified, 7-story, 140 unit, luxury rental building on the corner of Willow & 14th Street.  They are planning for 387 below-grade parking spaces and 22,000 square feet of retail on the ground floor.  Wonder how much of that will remain empty like many of the empty storefronts in Garden Street Lofts & Maxwell Place. There is also mention of a community center but no details as to what that will entail or who will be entitled to use it and for what purpose.

The Real Hoboken Real Estate Game-Changer:

It’s no secret that there are plans to raze the Hoboken Housing Authority public-housing projects back on Jackson & Harrison Streets either.  The HHA’s “Vision 20/20 plan” is for a “sustainable, transit-oriented, mixed-use, mixed-income neighborhood” (in their own words).  Existing residents will be relocated in phases.  The plan provides for “a variety of mixed-income housing options, allowing for upward mobility within the neighborhood and a deconcentration of poverty.” Given the bad rep the west side of Hoboken has long suffered (remember the days of being told not to go to the President streets?), this is dramatic. If this happens, it is bound to affect property values of the condos on Jackson & Monroe Streets in a positive way.  According to the announcement, “the neighborhood redevelopment plan also allows for the extension of the city street grid through the site and includes facilities for recreation, transit, early childhood education and charter schools, retail space, shops and restaurants, and community program space for job training.”
