NJ Transit awards contracts for Hoboken Terminal development, restoration projects


New Jersey Transit recently contracted LCOR Inc. to create a transit-oriented development plan for the 65-acre Hoboken Terminal and Yard.

LCOR will serve as master planner and developer for the site, a multi-modal transit center that links commuter- and light-rail, bus, Port Authority Trans-Hudson and ferry services.

NJ Transit officials want to improve efficiency between modes, and create a more customer-friendly layout to provide seamless passenger and pedestrian flow.

The agency’s board also awarded a $53.9 million contract to New Jersey’s Hall Construction Co. Inc. to complete the second phase of the Hoboken Terminal rehabilitation project. Work includes rehabilitating a portion of the terminal to its original design, restoring permanent ferry service and creating a new ferry waiting area.

Later this year, Hall Construction will begin reconstructing the original ferry slips, restoring the exterior facade and lighting, and building a new clock tower. Construction is scheduled to be complete in 2008. Under a first phase completed in September, NJ Transit repaired the terminal’s structure.
