Upper Grand observations
As you might already know, there have been quite a few entries regarding URSA/Tarragon’s Upper Grand residential buildings on Hoboken411 this week. Mainly because I was bringing the real estate entries in the directory as current as I can possibly make it.
In the process, I observed a few things worth mentioning on their own.
Exaggerated and inaccurate graphics
The main Upper Grand website has this fancy graphic supposedly detailing where the various projects are located. As you can see in the image below, it’s not an accurate representation of Hoboken OR where the buildings are situated.
By looking at it, you might be led to believe that it’s SO CLOSE to being almost waterfront living! Oh, but they conveniently FORGOT to include 10 north/south streets! Are they psychic, and eventually Hoboken will be so flooded that Clinton Street will be the “new Washington Street?”
Future intentions and plans
This image includes many “proposed” or “potential” areas of development that haven’t even been approved or started yet. Such as:
- This great baseball field
- These great tennis courts
- This green area north of Hoboken on the Weehawken side
- The community pool!
- A building in the currently empty lot on 12th and Clinton Streets
- A development on 11th and Grand that was at one point subject to eminent domain (and never approved)
Do they know something we don’t? Have backroom deals already been made?
