Hoboken Terminal Development Plan Update

njtransitbusterminal
The City of Hoboken is working to move forward with the redevelopment of the Hoboken Terminal and is providing the public with a status update and background on four parallel initiatives regarding this site:
1. NJ Transit’s request to have a 1.8 acre portion redeveloped as a first phase in order to make improvements to the terminal and bring in a major commercial business.

Update: NJ Transit has scheduled a second public meeting for this Tuesday, December 14th at 7pm at the Hoboken Terminal. NJ Transit intends to provide the public with an update on their proposed plans based on feedback received at the first public meeting in September.




2. Enacting an interlocal agreement between NJ Transit and the City of Hoboken to establish the process for proceeding with the redevelopment of the site in order to follow the New Jersey Redevelopment and Housing Law.

Update: The City sent a draft agreement to NJ Transit in August which was been reviewed by the Attorney General and NJ Transit. NJ Transit agreed to provide the City with feedback on the agreement by noon on Friday, December 10, 2010. The City’s redevelopment attorneys will review the feedback at that time.

3. Selecting a redevelopment planner for the City to prepare the redevelopment plan for the entire 52-acre Hoboken Terminal Redevelopment Area and begin the visioning for this area.

Update: In late September, the City received 11 submissions in response to a Request for Qualifications for a planner for the Hoboken Terminal and Rail Yards Redevelopment Plan. A review team was formed consisting of the Zoning, Planning and Economic Development subcommittee, the Community Development Director, a member of the City’s sustainability green team, and a member of the Hoboken Rail Yard Task Force that was formed in coordination with the Quality of Life Coalition. The team met in October to evaluate the submittals and the list of firms was narrowed down based on the criteria being considered. The redevelopment attorney conducted a technical review of the submittals, and in November, the review team further narrowed the list down to four firms to interview. The review team will hold interviews at the end of December and is expected to make a recommendation based on those interviews.

4. NJ Transit Studio Class for Rutgers University and Hunter College graduate planning students.

Update: In addition to the redevelopment planner, the City will be coordinating with the NJ Transit Studio Class. This studio class, starting in January and going through April, is geared toward improving the transportation modes at the Hoboken Terminal. Both the City of Hoboken and NJ Transit are eager to improve and rationalize access to Hoboken Terminal, given both the needs of each transportation mode and economic development initiatives citywide. This studio will afford students real world experience by exploring, researching and recommending improvements from transportation, land use, and urban design perspectives. The goal is to give NJ Transit and the City a unique opportunity to make the Terminal not only an efficient transportation facility but also a great public place that is fully integrated into the fabric of Downtown Hoboken. Issues to be addressed include bus operations, pedestrian flow, bicycle access and storage, ferry terminal and Warrington Plaza operations and potential commercial uses, taxi drop off and waiting, van/shuttle drop off and waiting, private vehicle drop off and waiting, urban design issues, economic development issues, and signage for the terminal and wayfinding. This studio class will include a public input component and will coordinate with the redevelopment planner’s efforts.

Hiking the Red Rocks of Utah - Zion National Park


Hello all,

Thank you for your indulgences while I took a little needed RnR....Well I think it was rest and relaxation.  I and some of classmates from the Stern School of Business reconnected in Southern Utah for a week of Hiking the Red Rocks and Slots of Zion and other Parks in the area.




The national parks out west are really beautiful.  These pics don't do the landscape justice but I thought it would be nice to share some of them.  I love Hoboken but at times you just need to get away and the red rocks are just a beautiful tranquil place.   I could never live here but it's a wonderful place to visit.  I highly recommend you put the parks out west on your "bucket list" if you haven't already visited them. 


I feel ready for the whirl wind of the holidays and the opening of the Spring selling season.  If you are thinking of buying or selling let me know.....I am refreshed and ready to go.

Gobble, gobble - Happy Thanksgiving!







In early autumn of 1621, the 53 surviving Pilgrims celebrated their successful harvest, as was the English custom.  During this time, "many of the Indians coming... amongst the rest their great king Massasoit, with some ninety men."



That 1621 celebration is remembered as the "First Thanksgiving in Plymouth."  


Happy Thanksgiving from Hoboken Real Estate Monitor!

NYCs new Taxi Designs - Which one do you like?




The sedan is out, the van is in. Three mini-van like automobiles are finalists for the city's next official taxi design. Car makers Ford, Nissan and Karsan USA have all made the cut.

New York city's iconic taxi cab is about to get a makeover, as the city prepares to select a new taxi design.

The Cooper Hewitt Design Museum's Paul Herzan thinks the designs are an improvement over what's on the road now.

"My guess is that you see sliding doors and you think mom-van, and I don't think so necessarily. I think they look pretty futuristic," Herzan said.



Only the design by Karsan is fully wheelchair accessible. It also has a clear roof for sky gazing. Nissan expects their entry to soon be fully electric. The Ford taxi looks roomy, and may appeal to the taxi industry which has relied on the manufacturer for decades.
But some industry insiders have expressed concern about in the move to select just one model for all drivers.



Today's fleet of cabs is made up of 16 vehicle models from nine different manufacturers. The mainstay, Ford's Crown Victoria, was recently discontinued.



Taxi and Limousine Commissioner David Yassky said durability is key.  "Our vehicles drive significantly more miles than even taxis used in other big cities and weather conditions that are more exacting. New York City, unlike other big cities, has both quite cold and days and quite hot days."
The TLC will be airing public service announcements with Commissioner Yassky, inviting New Yorkers to weigh in -- chiefly on monitors in the back of yellow cabs.



"We're working on designing the taxi of tomorrow and we want your help making the right choices. Here's an example: everyone wants to help the environment, but smaller cars have less leg room.

Which is more important to you?"

In the PSA, Yassky offers the enticement of being entered in a drawing to win free taxi trips for a year if participants fill out a 13-question survey about what cab features are most important to them.
The winning automaker will be announced early next year and officials expect the new vehicle to begin hitting the streets by the fall of 2014.

The answer to the problem of the American car is not under its hood.





Today's cars are costly, dangerous, and an ecological nightmare. Transportation generates more than a quarter of U.S. greenhouse gases, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. A portion of that comes from moving freight around but more than 20% is personal transportation. Our vehicle emissions are a major climate change contributor, but what comes out of the tailpipe is only a fraction of the total climate impact of driving a car, and the climate impact is in turn only a part of the environmental and social damage cars cause. Improving mileage will not fix these problems.



The best car-related innovation we have is not to improve the car but to eliminate the need to drive it everywhere we go. In the U.S,, we need to stop sprawl and build well-designed compact communities. The land-use patterns in our communities dictate not only how much we drive, but how sustainable we can be on all sorts of fronts. And sprawled-out land uses generate enormous amounts of automotive greenhouse gases. A recent major study, Growing Cooler, published by Smart Growth America, a coalition of national, state, and local organizations that addresses urban planning, makes the point clearly: If 60% of new developments were even modestly more compact, we'd emit 85 million fewer metric tons of tailpipe [car emissions] CO2 each year by 2030—as much as would be saved by raising the national mileage standards to 32 mpg.



So we know that density reduces driving. We know we're capable of building really dense new neighborhoods with plenty of open space, welcoming public places, thriving neighborhood retail, and a tangible sense of place. Just look at Vancouver, which has redeveloped its downtown core into a dense mix of retail, jobs, and housing. Not only is the result one of the most liveable cities in North America, but 40% of all downtown Vancouver households are car-free.

Overhauling the American City



We're also capable of using good design, infill development (new, denser development in vacant or underused lots), and infrastructure investments to transform existing medium-low density neighborhoods into walkable compact communities. Creating communities dense enough to save those 85 million metric tons of tailpipe emissions is (politics aside) easy. It is within our power to go much farther: to build whole metropolitan regions where the vast majority of residents live in communities that eliminate the need for daily driving, and make it possible for many people to live without private cars altogether.



Generally, we think of cars as things which are quickly replaced and buildings as things which rarely change. That will not be the case over the next few decades. Because of population growth, the ongoing development churn in cities with buildings being remodeled or replaced, citywide infrastructure projects and changing tastes, half of the American-built environment will be rebuilt between now and 2030. Done right, that new construction could enable a complete overhaul of the American city.



This is especially true since we don't need to change every home to transform a neighborhood. Many cities prevent denser development through bad building codes. But many inner-ring suburban neighborhoods, for instance, could become terrific places simply by allowing infill development. Strip-mall arterials could be converted to walkable mixed-use streets. This transition can happen in a few years.

We Can't Wait For Changing Auto Design

In comparison, it takes at least 16 years to replace 90% of our automotive fleet, and since it takes years to move a car design from prototype to production, it looks likely that the cars most people in the U.S. have available to drive in 2030 will not be all that different from the more efficient cars today. I'm optimistic that at least some radically engineered, nontoxic, fully recyclable electric cars will be on the road by then, but it's extremely unlikely that (barring massive government intervention) they'll be anything like the norm. We should not wait for automobile design to fix this problem.
