259 First Street Action
New building taking shape at 259 First Street in Hoboken
For a few blocks along First Street in Hoboken, it doesn’t always look promising – mainly due to the fact that this area gets crushed during any major rainfall or hurricane. It’s knocked out quite a few shops, including community food staples like Filippo’s Pizza. But that doesn’t keep people from trying, as a totally brand new building was erected at 259 First Street (and stretching all the way across the block to Newark Street.
Supposedly, the ground floor retail section already has a tenant, and is expected to be a new restaurant.
The rest of the building apparently includes a handful of condos (3) and the rest is to be “office space.” That’s one trend that seems to be growing in town – is small offices for rent. I suppose entrepreneurs find Hoboken attractive, especially with it’s easy commute to and from Manhattan.
