Development continues at a pretty rapid pace within the Mile Square City and to give credit where credit is due, the Hoboken Chamber of Commerce recently presented Fields Construction with their “Developer/Builder of the Year” award to recognize the company for its achievements in the community.
The Chamber’s annual awards dinner, now in their fifth year, honored businesses, businesspeople and agencies that have made a positive difference in the community. Fields was one of three nominees in the developer category at the event, which was held last month at the Elks Club.
“We’re humbled to be selected as ‘Developer/Builder of the Year’ in a city that is rife with outstanding real estate development and construction firms,” says Jim Caulfield, principal of Fields Construction. “Hoboken is our home, and it’s a place that’s been blessed with smart and dedicated businesses, political leaders, planners and professionals, who have made the city what it is today, and have made it possible for us to develop and build here. We look forward to continuing to play a role in Hoboken’s growth.”
The company’s latest Hoboken venture is The Jordan, a 159-unit rental building at 1200 Clinton Street. Fields also recently broke ground on another Hoboken project that combines five lots at 502-510 Madison Street and will construct a four-story, 18-unit building that was planned by Antonio Aiello at Urban Design Workshop.
Fields Construction, headquartered at One Henderson Street, entered the market in 1999 and has built more than 1,500 apartments throughout Hoboken. They had a big year in the rest of the county too, as they were behind the build-out of Jersey City’s Baker Building and are currently developing 207 Van Vorst Street, a 153-unit mixed-use luxury property that features 7,305 square feet of retail space.
Other notable winners at the Chamber’s dinner were the Hoboken Shelter for “Community Service Provider of the Year,” the Provident Bank for “Financial Business of the Year,” Singleton-Galmann Realty for “Real Estate Office of the Year” and La Isla for “Restaurant of the Year.”
