including a penthouse pool and roof deck, and 25,000 s/f of ground floor retail space. The adjacent two-acre park will be split between a one-acre open grass area and children’s play- ground and a one-acre public plaza designed for active and passive recreation uses. Construction is expected to be completed in mid-2019. The project – which is rising near the 9th St. Hudson-Bergen Light Rail Station is part of the larger redevelopment of Hoboken‘s western edge into a vibrant and active pedestrian- friendly neighborhood. The

new building follows in the footsteps of Vine, a 135-home luxury rental completed by the two prominent development companies at 900 Monroe St. in Fall, 2015. “We’re invested in the future of Hoboken and are committed to working with the City to develop sustainable housing that significantly contributes to the community-at-large,” says Larry Bijou, Managing Partner of Hoboken-based Bijou Properties. “This new building and open space donation fits perfectly into that philosophy.” Bijou Properties work has been cited by industry peers, most recently receiving Hon- orable Mention for the 2017 LOCUS Development Company of the Year Award, which recognizes sus- tainable, smart-growth develop- ment activity. Its dedication to Hoboken can be seen throughout the Hudson County City’s north end where the company has developed Garden St. Lofts, New Jersey’s first LEED Gold Residential high-rise building, Edge Lofts, a mid-rise LEED Platinum rental building; and Park + Garden, a 212-unit LEED Gold Certified rental community that includes a 32,000 s/f Elysian Charter School. The developer also cre- ated and sponsors Garden St. Mews, an open space located right outside Park + Garden that supports community gath- erings and host the Hoboken Family Farmer’s Market, and has restored the former Hostess Factory on the corner of 14th St. and Park Avenue into a retail complex.
