Last week, Hartz Mountain Industries and Katerra Construction, fka Fields Construction, celebrated the topping out of 800 Harbor Blvd, a three-tower project at the southern end of Weehawken’s Lincoln Harbor.

The 573-unit project, which consists of three towers atop a common podium, is being built in one phase. The construction milestone is significant as the project is ahead of schedule despite 22 bad weather days, according to remarks from Katerra’s project manager Steve Marchetto.

Located just one Light Rail stop north of Hoboken, Lincoln Harbor is quickly expanding and growing in popularity. Earlier this year, Hartz Mountain launched leasing at Harbor 1500, a luxury rental building built atop a pier, offering incredible views of the Manhattan skyline. Additionally, a highly anticipated Whole Foods store is wrapping up construction and should open later this year.

  1. Weehawken Township says they asked to put a few middle income units in this project for local firefighters, police officers and teachers but the developer opted to pay extra not to have to provide these units (apparently it is a think you can do in NJ unlike NYC). That sounds absolutely disgraceful, what a terrible neighbor to the other Weehawken residents if this is true…..Not to mention the towns playing fields for all of the students is just down the road and as it is it takes almost 30 min to go 3 miles or less to get our kids to practice. I can only imagine the impact this is going to have on the area. Not to mention our schools are over crowded and the bus stops have that have 50 plus ppl waiting in lines in the morning. This project is too enormous for the area….but I guess no one cared….as long as money was made 🙁

  2. Regarding the schools , Weehawken charges enough in property taxes to build additional schools.
    The other issue is the traffic congestion that will impact the area.
    I wonder if anybody looked into it.

  3. Hey Sera. How many middle income guests do you allow to stay at your home? That “enormous project” is going to pay enormous taxes that will pay for that expensive waterfront park that you will be allowed to use without having to raise your own taxes. Before you go after a project, you should do more research. And that traffic that you so hate has been here since the Lincoln tunnel opened. Also forgot to mention. Hudson County is and was always intended to be a densely packed county. It was never intended to be a suburb. But if that’s what you want, I am certain you can find a suburb with a ton of open space, no traffic and absolutely no culture, great food or diversity. Great job Weehawken for finding ways to keep your taxes stable while adding wonderful services for your constituents. My family that lives there fully understands this and votes accordingly.

  4. I am 100% behind this project and more on the water front…I live at the Troy in UC it’s such an eye sour down there..I hope with the development down there they clean up the cove…those sunken ships are ugly
