Located at the former Union Dry Dock waterfront property in Hoboken, New Jersey, Maritime Park will create a world-class waterfront park that reflects the significance of the Hudson River in Hoboken’s history and future. Historically, Hoboken’s shoreline was a complex mosaic of maritime, intertidal, and upland habitats. As the city expanded, its shoreline was transformed to accommodate the maritime industry and most of its natural features were lost. Today, Maritime Park presents the unique opportunity of redefining the relationship between the city and the Hudson River.

A design team led by Dattner Architects and SCAPE worked collaboratively with the City of Hoboken and community members to craft a framework and concept design for the park. It features maritime-inspired community spaces and amenities, as well as natural features that increase biodiversity and resilience to coastal flooding. This concept design directly responds to the preferences expressed by Hoboken residents throughout a series of community meetings and surveys held over a ten-month long process. The engagement process informed a design where recreation, education, and ecological enhancements seamlessly come together to reconnect the City with the Hudson River.
