Poskanzer Skott Architects-designed multifamily property moves ahead in Hackensack
HACKENSACK, NJ — Progress continues at Alkova Companies’ 150-170 Main St. multifamily tower in downtown Hackensack. Designed by Poskanzer Skott Architects of Ridgewood, NJ, the 382-unit project – located in the heart of the Main Street Redevelopment District – is serving as a catalyst for the city’s revitalization as an exciting place to live, shop and play.
Zoning changes in 2012 have fueled the development of high-rise residential in Hackensack’s transit-oriented, pedestrian-friendly redevelopment district.
“The city has great potential, and Alkova Companies is at the forefront of its revitalization,” said Barry Poskanzer, AIA. “From an architect’s standpoint, this type of semi-urban context – which calls for a strategic blend of traditional, walkable-city amenities and suburban conveniences such as adequate parking – provides an opportunity to be particularly creative.”
Residents of 150-170 Main St. will enjoy fabulous views of the Manhattan skyline and county courthouse. The property includes a mix of one- and two-bedroom residences, with amenities including a pool and rooftop garden, below-grade parking and 7,500 s/f of street-level retail space. PSA has deep roots in the New Jersey multifamily market, having designed thousands of units in projects ranging from urban luxury towers to mid-rise neighborhood developments.
