Garden Street Lofts
8/7/2008 Progress Update:
Decided to refresh the Garden Street Lofts thread today, since they recently removed the scaffolding from the project, and the area is starting to look better.
Many residents have said they can’t wait until Garden Street from 14th to 15th re-opens. It’ll certainly make driving up there a bit easier.
SEE PREVIOUS CONSTRUCTION UPDATES AFTER THE JUMP…
Here are a few construction progress photos. See the rest below.
Coldwell Banker indicates that this project is expected to be completed Spring 2008. No exact pricing yet, but they indicate one bedrooms will be priced from the low 600’s, two bedrooms from the low 900’s, and three bedrooms from 1.1 million. Six of the units expected to be released for pre-sale by April 2007.
Is this sheer irony that a “green” kind of apartment complex is being built on 14th and Garden Street? Or was this the marketing plan from the get-go in order to command bigger bucks?
We have nothing against having a building to live in, nor have we contacted the developers to see what the real deal is with this upcoming project. Interesting design, though. Are they keeping the previous facade in order to maintain compliance with the historical requirements of the City. Hard to tell from a rendering.
We’re also for having a nice clean environment. But what would one single “green” building in Hoboken do for the city? Nothing. Especially with 100’s of buses and construction trucks passing by daily. Are they going to be 100% green? Use electric construction equipment? When this gets built, we plan to be there every day taking pictures of the smog created during the building process.
Here’s their website if you want to sign up to learn more. I wonder how many trees they’ll knock down to print the promotional material? www.gardenstreetlofts.com
“Live Green” (only if you’re the developer)
