After 16 years of deliberation, plans to revitalize Hoboken’s waterfront are moving forward. New Jersey Transit, the City of Hoboken, and developer LCOR on Wednesday released new renderings of Hoboken Connect, a mixed-use transit project that aims to bring major investments to the city. The development will include a 20-story office building with retail, a 389-unit residential property with 20 percent of the units affordable, public open space, and the renovation of transit infrastructure and buildings like the historic Lackawanna Terminal. The project is currently under review by the city and is pending redevelopment agreement approvals, which could be decided next month.

A never-lived-in-before luxury penthouse in Hudson Yards has been listed for $70,000/month, a record-breaking asking rent for the neighborhood. The four-bedroom, five-bathroom apartment is on the 87th floor of 15 Hudson Yards, a 914-foot-tall tower designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro. Measuring over 5,000 square feet, the unit is one of the largest residences in Hudson Yards. The massive apartment is the result of combining two units, 87C and 87D, which were purchased by the same private buyer pre-construction, combined, and renovated. The previous most expensive rental in the area was last asking $32,000/month.

Brooklyn’s cherished 119-year-old Grand Prospect Hall will be replaced with a new luxury apartment building. The Victorian-era banquet hall located at 263 Prospect Avenue in Greenwood Heights was owned for over 40 years by Michael and Alice Halkias, who captured the attention of New Yorkers through their over-the-top television commercials advertising the hall. As first reported by Yimby, permits were filed last month for a 147-unit apartment building at the site with 180 underground parking spaces, recreational spaces, and a fitness room.
