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.

2/2/2007 Update:

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?

“Live Green” (only if you’re the developer)

Anyone have an idea when GSL is ready for occupancy? Originally it was summer 2008, that has obviously passed. Looks as if they are making progress but still quite behind.

even green buildings need to actually be constructed guys, so it’s kind of silly to say that construction and noise of the building is against it being green? no? am i missing something?

i think it’s great that they kept the exterior and gracefully integrated the modern ne construction part.

Here’s what i do think is reidiculous- i went ot the sales office thinking a model was already open…I used to live riight by there on 14th and was dying to see how it was turning out…. so anyways, they said when the model / units are ready, they won’t even show you if you are not pre-qualified and ready to buy. that’s so ridiculous and unfriendly. And they prices are astronomical! in this market, are they on drugs? it does appear they are doing “top of the line” everything, which i suppose warrants premium prices as opposed to typical toll brothers crappy materials used in their buildings, but still prices seem way high.

Considering the amount of construction going on, I would say plenty of people want to live there.

Anyone know what will be going in on the ground floor? Restaurant? Retail?

Brownstones are great to look at from the outside but the layout sucks. I rather be in a modern layout of 3 bdrm than the brownstone. Not sure where you can get a 2 bdrm with parking for 500k in town that’s NOT IN A FLOOD ZONE. yes you can get that in the west part, way west of the town but who wants to live there. For everyone worry about the noise you should not live in hoboken, move to Milford.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
