NJ Transit takes Hoboken, part deux

Tonight the short noticed meeting right on the back of the holiday season sees the next stage of the NJ Transit vs. Hoboken saga with a meeting tonight in the Hoboken Terminal’s waiting room.

17 or 26 stories, what’s the difference?  NJ Transit doesn’t say what’s next, not yet.  Does this building look like a centerpiece or a subsidiary to more and larger towers?

The last meeting produced a big community turnout and a singular voice of concern from the community.  NJ Transit officials made a game show of it waiting until  the end before revealing the prize: a building in the twenty plus story range with little detail or how it fits into their plan for development in the larger area of its transit yard.

Tonight at 7:00, Hoboken gets sprung on part deux.  It should be interesting as they attempt to chip away at big development resistance in town.

We’ve all seen this act before.
