NYC Skyline set to change for Hoboken

NYC Skyline to change dramatically over Hudson from Hoboken NJ Hudson Rail Project - NYC Skyline set to change for Hoboken

Hudson Yards Project may block ESB view for some

Shortly after the NYC Subway No. 7 Line Extension is complete (est. 2014) – the one of the biggest construction projects ever will begin near 34th Street on the West Side: Hudson Yards.

While not expected to be fully completed until 2025 (or beyond), this massive project – and very tall structures so close to the Hudson River – will forever change the NYC Skyline for us Jersey folks, blocking the view of the famous Empire State Building for many (but most Hobokenites will still get to see the fabulous landmark.)

Regardless – this six square NYC block real estate project is enormous – with over 12 million sq. ft. of space expected to be available. To put the size of that in comparison – that would be the entire northwest corner of Hoboken north of 14th Street & west of Park Avenue (over 12 square blocks in the Mile Square).

What do you think of this project? Overall good for the economy in this region? Will it help or hurt Hoboken’s property values?

No need to worry about the NYC projects. Hoboken continues to build highrises (W, Toll Incl, Shipyard Inc, etc…) along the water that block the view.

The 1,190 foot tall 15 Penn would also dramatically change the view.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
