Please attend this important meeting of the Weehawken Township Council this Wednesday

The amended redevelopment plan would allow for more buildings like this one – 800 Harbor Blvd. — to the south at the Weehawken Cove.

Weehawken Township Council
400 Park Avenue, Weehawken
Wednesday, December 11th at 7 PM

The Weehawken Township Council will cast a final vote on an Ordinance that:

  • Increases residential development in Lincoln Harbor from a maximum of 850 units to over 2,000

  • Allows Hartz Mountain to build as-of-right two 160-foot towers abutting the Weehawken Cove 

  • Allows Hartz Mountain to build out remaining undeveloped parcels at Lincoln Harbor without providing the required common open space

  • Ignores the Weehawken Master Plan requirement to protect views of the Hudson River

  • Fails to integrate a plan with the Rebuild by Design flood-mitigation 4-acre park on the Hoboken-side of the Weehawken Cove

The Hartz application to build on the ATIR site abutting the Weehawken Cove was recently rejected by the Weehawken Planning Board. This change to the ordinance will allow Hartz to build the project with 160 foot rather than 200 foot towers without seeking variances from the Redevelopment Plan.
