The River. The Harbor. The Life.

Once the Maxwell House Coffee Plant, this former industrial site on the Hudson River is now an urban village that reconnects Hoboken with its waterfront. The project created four new waterfront development blocks, allowing public access to a new park at the river’s edge. Three 12-story towers are staggered allowing maximum views to the Manhattan skyline. Maxwell Place features 750 residential units, 1,500 parking spaces and 210,000 square feet of commercial space. A 5-acre public park and esplanade along the riverfront compliment the community. The first five stories conform to the scale of the adjacent townhouses and brownstones, but conceal parking, while ground floor retail spaces bring activity to the street and sidewalks.
