In 2016, the City of Hoboken acquired 6 acres in Northwest Hoboken to transform a former industrial site into the city’s largest public park. The Northwest Resiliency Park will build upon the City’s ongoing efforts to integrate resiliency into park projects, such as the Southwest Park and 7th & Jackson Park.
The Northwest Resiliency Park will manage at least one million gallons of stormwater. It will play an important role in the mitigation of flooding from frequent storm events and help to relieve the overtaxed combined sewer system.
A temporary pop-up park is activating the future site of the Northwest Resiliency Park while the design for the permanent park is underway. The temporary park will remain in operation until construction begins on the permanent resiliency park.
This project is a partnership with E&LP, OLIN, nArchitects, and the City of Hoboken.
This project will begin construction in 2019.
