‘Scuse me while I kiss the sky
It’s been over three months since The Berkshire entry was updated – and oh boy – they’re almost done building up the floors. I think they have about two or three more floors to go. That was quick!
In another six months, hundreds of new Hoboken residents will be clogging the streets!
Previous updates after the jump…
The building would fall down without them
Hoboken411 has received quite a few emails regarding the daily pile driving going on over at The Berkshire construction site on 14th & Hudson – some posters are griping about it in the Rant Corner as well.
Some of those that work from home in the area said the noise was getting to them. I guess I’m immune – one of the previous companies I worked for had this going on for a solid YEAR. Brings back good memories for me, actually!
Many Hoboken411 readers were wondering “what’s that construction over by the Sovereign?“
About the Berkshire
“Construction will commence in early 2009 on The Berkshire, a magnificent new residential building, containing 93 homes, located within Applied’s celebrated Shipyard community on Hoboken’s northern waterfront. Continuing in the fine tradition that has made The Shipyard the area’s premier waterfront address, The Berkshire will feature loft-style luxury residences and a raquet club offering squash, raquet ball and paddle tennis. Residents will also have access to the impressive array of amenities available at The Shipyard, including on-site NY Waterway ferry terminal with service to mid-town and downtown Manhattan, a fabulous waterfront park and promenade, a state-of-the-art fitness center, two rooftop pools, sun decks, and a children’s play area.
There’s also a variety of retail conveniences located within The Shipyard, including Starbucks, Kings Supermarket, Sparrow’s Wine & Liquor, Hollywood Video (411: Doomed), Rite Aid Pharmacy, and LUA, a Pan Latin restaurant and lounge experience fronting Manhattan and the Turning Point, a fun loving cafè for casual dining. Of course, Hoboken’s myriad of boutique shops, restaurants, bakeries and bars are also just steps away, creating a chic small-town urban neighborhood that is sought after by many.”
