1/28/2009 Update:

Last I knew, this building at Observer Highway and Washington Street was supposed to be the Applied Development’s new headquarters.

I’ve received several emails from folks ranging from “what is that?” to “hey, it’s ugly – how come they didn’t have the historical committee on their butts?”

Here’s a couple pictures taken last week. No post-image processing was done. Look how blue the sky is!

See how it looked previously after the jump…

8/9/2008 Update:

A Hoboken411 reader recently asked what was being built on the corner of Observer and Washington. I reminded him of this thread, and decided it was time to update the photos and get the conversation started again!

Developers (aka Applied Housing)

I heard they’re moving their headquarters to a new location at Washington and Observer. I wonder what kind of nifty zoning variances they were allowed for this project?
