Pool, rink, new parks coming to waterfront

f96_01weeexpansion21_1The Township of Weehawken approved last month a 3.5-acre expansion of its waterfront recreational area, which by summer 2019 is set to include new pools.

According to officials, the entire project will be completed by the end of 2019. It will include a six-lane lap pool, a recreational pool, infant pool, splash park, and an 11,200-square-foot ice-skating rink/multi-purpose pavilion.

It will be situated next to a pre-existing 10-acre waterfront park, and will be connected to a two-acre land plot to be used for passive and active recreation, such as music concerts and infant parks.

The township hopes to open the pools by summer 2019, and the entire expansion by the end of the year. The six-lane and recreational pools will be handicap accessible.

The lane pool will include bleachers on one end for viewing, and the recreational pool will include a slide and whirlpool area. FULL STORY AT HUDSONREPORTER.COM

Avora buyers reap benefit of Weehawken tax cut

636507521814243578-010518-d-avora-construction

Weehawken Township recently announced an historic reduction in its property taxes, lowering the rate from 2.23 percent to 1.49 percent — one of the lowest along the New Jersey Gold Coast.

Slated to take effect in 2018, the new rate is quickly reverberating throughout the region as buyers factor in the significant cost savings it will yield over the length of their home ownership.

 At Avora, Weehawken’s signature new condominium building which features 184 waterfront residences, unobstructed views of midtown Manhattan and an impressive amenity offering, purchasers will enjoy up to $96,190 in savings over a ten-year period on a new two-bedroom residence priced at $1,225,620.

Weehawken Is Hottest Housing Market In New Jersey

weehawken-new-jersey-hottest-housing-marketsIn many New Jersey towns, the real estate market is on fire. High demand by buyers and a relative housing stock shortage are sending real estate prices through the roof. Using Zillow’s Home Value Index, a recent article listed 19 New Jersey towns that have experienced their highest median home value at the beginning of 2017 and unprecedented growth.

Zillow’s Home Value Index revolutionized the way median home prices are calculated. Taking into account that the most accurate report would be more like a commodity price index or a consumer price index–the same set of goods and their respective prices can be evaluated in all time periods–and realizing real estate sales never represent the same set of goods in all time periods, Zillow developed a Zestimate.

A Zestimate is a calculation of the value of every home at any time. This enables Zillow to truly analyze the value of the homes in a single market over time rather than referring simply to sales in a given quarter which only tell the story of certain homes at certain times.

The 19 towns highlighted exclude shore towns because they are often secondary home markets, but each is well above the statewide growth seen last year. Many of these towns, in fact, have recovered from the 2008 housing crisis significantly faster than the rest of the state and are even experiencing higher home values than they were prior to the downturn.

#Hoboken Launches Pay-by-Phone Parking & Free Parking Promotion

hoboken-poster-graphic-live-768x994Starting August 1st, drivers who park at all on-street metered spaces throughout Hoboken will be able to use their mobile phone to easily pay for parking using the Parkmobile application. The first 1,000 customers to use the app in August can receive up to 2 hours of free parking using the code 2FREEHOB.

“We are excited to partner with Parkmobile to provide Hoboken residents and visitors with an easy and convenient parking option,” said Mayor Dawn Zimmer. “The app makes it easy to pay for parking, know how much time you have left, and add more time directly from your phone without going back to your car or the meter.”

The Parkmobile application is available for the iPhone, Android, Windows 7, and Blackberry smartphones. Drivers can also call 877-PARK304 and will continue to have the option to pay at meters with credit card, debit card, smart card, coins, and bills where available.

To use the new Parkmobile system, customers register free at http://www.parkmobile.com. Once registered, they can use a mobile app, internet, or call toll free to pay for parking. After setting up their account, customers can immediately begin using the system with their registered mobile device. Signage on parking meters will indicate the zone number, which in Hoboken range from 4710 to 4722. Enforcement officers will be able to see that a motorist has paid with Parkmobile using a wireless handheld device. Mobile app users may also choose to receive alerts and reminders prior to expiration of their parking session. Time limits on meters still apply and the app will not allow users to purchase more time than allotted by the meters. A 35 cent fee will be charged for each transaction.

Parkmobile is in use in communities throughout the region including Newark, Union City, West New York, Bloomfield, Montclair, Summit, Chatham, Ridgewood, Glen Rock, New Brunswick, and other major cities including Pittsburgh and Washington, DC. In February, New York City DOT awarded a contract to Parkmobile to allow mobile payment at all metered spaces across all five boroughs.

Model of economic growth

2016-07-27_12-06-56via NJBiz.com – It’s not always easy to find positive business news in New Jersey, what with our high taxes, political shenanigans and high cost of living. But when you need something to feel good about, our commercial real estate market is usually a dependable place to start.

Nowhere is that more true than Hudson County, which is increasingly finding itself the belle of the ball, with companies in New York City increasingly looking west as they consider their own real estate costs in Manhattan. It’s a fable we’ve long been told would come true someday, and while it’s too soon to say that day has come, the signs are very encouraging.

Take last week’s report from Newmark Grubb Knight Frank, which said surging demand was helping to put a dent in the vacancy rate, now south of 13 percent and with rising asking rents increasing to nearly $37 a square foot. That’s driven in no small part by proximity to mass transit in cities such as Hoboken and Jersey City, which are clearly driving the bus here, and we’ve got a preview of what they might offer in the future. Earlier this month, the Economic Development Authority awarded more than $80 million to companies to entice them to relocate to, or grow their operations in, Jersey City; the largest, Omnicom Group, would bring 415 full-time jobs across the river if the company decides to make the move. Meanwhile, accounting giant EY would get nearly $40 million if it moves a chunk of its operations from Times Square to River Street in Hoboken.
