Applied Development Company

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?

Could this be the first of many to come office buildings on Observer Highway? Are plans still in place to build over the railyards and add some highrises that will eventually connect Newport with Hoboken?

Or James McKnight.

About the comments on Conservative vs. Liberal. The greedy opportunistic politicians in this town would change their ‘coat’ if the demographic here changed. They would still be greedy opportunistic suckers but they would try to sound conservative. Roberts is a reformer when he runs, but then look at the core of him, his actions tell you what he is, and history shows you he will change his outward appearance at the drop of a hat.

Probably Dean Marchetto [sp]… Apparently he’s the only architect allowed in Hoboken.

That parking lot that used to be there had a lot of nice older trees. Now there’s this 1960s-looking building. It makes the Burchard Building at Stevens on River Terrace and 5th look classy.

It looks pretty bauhaus to me, and if that style isn’t historic, then I don’t know what is. So the historical committee would have nothing to say.
