Apartment Alley

Last week in the “Dog Run Ideas” post, I mentioned that I believe that Hoboken may reach a population of close to 60,000 within a few years. Some people disagreed.

However, here’s a little project: Since the 2000 Census (pop. 38,577), let’s figure out how many high-rises have opened their doors (like the 333 River, Shipyard, Archstone, HTB, Harborside Lofts, Skyclub, Sovereign, etc) along with other massive “mid-rise” developments (such as Curling Club & Upper Grand), and developments “coming soon” (Maxwell Place, Metrostop, more Upper Grand). There are dozens of other independent developments that I cannot even name.

What about if the SW redevelopment adds 2000 more? And the Western Edge? Imagine if the 65-acre NJ Transit project gets peppered with 30+ story towers?

Is my estimate way off? Anyone care to guess? At what point does the population growth in Hoboken “max out”?

FYI, this isn’t a “rant”, I’m just very curious!

You know that green and white envelope you got a few weeks ago and didn’t open. It is due today August 15. You can either fill it in and mail it or phone it in.

It isn’t much but it is your money.[/quote]

You can also file it on-line. And I noticed here that the deadline was extended to Oct. 31st.

Anyone got a spare homestead they’d like me to take off their hands?
