A long-delayed supermarket project in Hoboken’s northern end is making some tangible progress after years of delays as a New York City-based grocer is looking to launch Urban Market, their first New Jersey outpost.

Jersey Digs broke the news about the company behind Dumbo Market coming to 1425 Washington Street back in 2022. Rumors have since run rampant about the planned market being scrapped after little work occurred at the site for months on end.

Construction finally picked up at the property in recent days, and a signage application for the property was approved by the planning board last year. The 14,000-square-foot grocery store will be known as Urban Market when it opens, creating what will be uptown Hoboken’s largest supermarket space.

Dumbo Market opened their first location a 66 Front Street in the, you guessed it, Dumbo neighborhood of Brooklyn. The market filled a surprising void that existed in the neighborhood at the time and has since expanded to other areas in New York City.

Urban Market in Hoboken promises to offer an extensive selection of organic and specialty items, and their Brooklyn locations offer fresh fish, meat, and hot food departments. The business partners with a service called Rosie for online orders, which can be made available for both curbside pickup and delivery.

While the company behind Urban Market has not announced an exact opening date, it seems a late 2024 launch could be in the cards.
