Mayor Bhalla invites residents to Maritime Park final concept design presentation

Mayor Ravi S. Bhalla and the City of Hoboken invite residents to provide feedback on the final draft concept design for Maritime Park during a community meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 25, at 6 p.m. at the Multi-Service Center Senior Room, 124 Grand St.  

The project team will present the final draft concept design for the waterfront park, which will be located at the former Union Dry Dock site along the Hudson River just south of Maxwell Waterfront Park. Project consultants Dattner Architects and SCAPE developed the final concept design based on public input on the initial three design alternatives collected through previous community and stakeholder meetings and survey responses.  

Following the presentation, community members can participate in topic-focused discussions with the project team to provide their input on the final concept design, which will then be presented to the Hoboken Planning Board and then the City Council for approval in November.  

“I look forward to sharing the final concept design for Maritime Park with the community next week,” said Mayor Bhalla. “Through your informative feedback we have created a multifaceted concept that will provide community gathering space, outdoor recreation opportunities, and restorative ecological spaces that will serve the residents and visitors of Hoboken for decades to come. I encourage residents to join us on Wednesday, Oct. 25, to learn more about their future park!”

The park will be constructed on the former industrial Union Dry Dock site located just south of Maxwell Waterfront Park.
