    Default Weehawken Rising

    There wasn't a Weehawken thread..

    Estuary (1600 Harbor Boulevard, Weehawken)

    Developer: Roseland Property Company and Hartz Mountain Industries

    Units: 589 rentals

    Status: Broke ground December 2011

    Roseland and Hartz plan to bring the first of three rental buildings to market in late 2013 or early 2014. The $200 million project, which broke ground last month, will include two six-story buildings and a third at eight stories, with snazzy amenities like a yoga room and a golf simulator. Hartz has owned the site, now occupied by parking lots, since 1981, and brought Roseland on after working with the developer on the Monaco in Jersey City. According to Roseland’s Goldberg, it “probably has the single most spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline along the entirety of the Hudson River waterfront.” Rents have not yet been set.

    Thanx Nexis4NJ. I enjoyed the photo tour; next best thing to being there! Recently I have made a few trips to Fort Lee, NJ, which is just a short trip over the George Washington Bridge from Manhattan. When I make that trip again I will go by bike and try to tour the area you just posted photos of - which I believe is not too far a trip by bike: I hope. Thanks again.

    Thumbs up Weehawken Getting Two New Hotels!

    Two new hotels, and resident parking
    Mayor says Marriott project will open in 18 to 24 months

    HOTEL ANTICIPATION – Weehawken Mayor Richard Turner expects construction of the two new Marriott hotels to be completed in 18 to 24 months.

    With a quick commute by ferry across the river to Manhattan, breathtaking skyline views, and abutting rail and bus stops, the Weehawken waterfront seems an ideal spot for new hotels – and a pair will be opening up in two years.

    In a press conference on the waterfront on Wednesday morning, Mayor Richard Turner and a host of officials and developers announced that over the next two years, developers will build two connecting Marriott hotels there: a 226-room Renaissance by Marriott and a 154-room Residence Inn (for extended stays).

    The hotel complex will be erected over an existing five-story garage that opened this summer,
    and will be adjacent to the Port Imperial Ferry Terminal.

    Each hotel will have its own entrance and lobby, but they will be connected on the sixth floor. Guests will share access to the outdoor terrace, pool, fitness center, a high-end restaurant on the sixth floor, and a function space for up to 750 seated guests.

    Roseland Development, which built the existing garage, entered into a contract to sell the air rights for the space above the garage to the hotel developer. The developer is a partnership of Portsmouth, N.H.-based XSS Hotels and Colwen Management.

    Mayor Turner on Tuesday touted the benefits that the project will bring to Weehawken, most notably more than $2.5 million in property and hotel taxes, and at least 115 full-time jobs when the project is completed. Turner said that Weehawken residents will be given first priority for the jobs, and that there may be even more jobs in connection with the restaurant.

    Also, Turner said, residents will soon be able to park at 170 spaces in the 850-spot parking garage overnight, for a fee. The fee will help offset a shuttle Turner said the town will run to the garage.

    “It’s a great day,” Turner said. “It brings a lot of benefits to Weehawken.”

    It was also a great day, Turner noted, because of the scores of Planning Board meetings that took place to approve the waterfront plan that included the hotels and residential projects. The full waterfront concept for that area was approved in 2001.

    Roseland principal Carl Goldberg said that considering the transportation, amenities, and view, “The hotels will set a new standard for luxury along the Hudson waterfront.”

    Leo Xarras, a partner in XSS Hotels, also cited those benefits. He added, “We look forward to the beginning of construction and to being a part of the Weehawken business community for years to come.”

    Mitchell Hersh, president and CEO of Mack-Cali, which acquired Roseland, said, “As the master developer of Port Imperial, the Mack-Cali Roseland team has worked hard to bring the highest quality housing and retail available to this ever-growing section of the New Jersey Gold Coast.”

    Weehawken currently has only one other hotel – a Sheraton in the Lincoln Harbor development, located to the south of Port Imperial. Neighboring Hoboken also has only one hotel, a W Hotel on the waterfront. The surrounding towns of Secaucus, North Bergen, and Jersey City have several hotels and motels apiece.


    Hotel details

    The Renaissance will include a function space for up to 750 seated guests, a lounge, and breakfast space and a 30,000 square foot outdoor terrace with views of the Hudson River and Manhattan skyline.

    The Residence Inn will feature large guest rooms with a fully-equipped in-suite kitchen, and free daily hot breakfast. The typical “extended stay” customer remains there for four to five nights.

    The hotels are located within Port Imperial, a 200-acre, $2 billion master-planned community that stretches two miles along the Hudson River, including West New York and Weehawken.

    The project is located 500 Avenue at Port Imperial.

    I've seen the rendering on the left before (in a diff article released around the same time), but not the one on the right. That building looks massive from street level!

    This is a strange location for an apartment building. Between the Willow Avenue and Park Avenue overpasses, bound roughly by 18th street to the north and HBLR tracks on the south. It's called The Gateway (http://virgonaarchitects.com/the-gateway/).
