Hoboken Southwest Park

Starr Whitehouse

Hoboken, NJ

As part of an extensive resiliency plan to mitigate flooding in a neighborhood of Hoboken, a one-acre parking lot was turned into a one-of-a-kind park. The green space offers a refined spot for a variety of recreational activities, as it features moveable seating areas, a lawn, child-friendly play zones, and much more. Designing an effective way of alleviating the burden that was put on the sewer system by heavy rainfalls was the solution to improving the water problem in Hoboken. The park successfully met the city’s demand for sustainability as it incorporated integrated green infrastructure, capable of managing 200,000 gallons of stormwater in its underground water detention system using permeable pavers. Eco-Promenade™ is designed to redirect rainwater back into the subbase and detention system through the joint material and keeping it away from sewer systems. The paving pattern was achieved by using a special-order Series™ finish in three colors on the Eco-Promenade shape. The colors play on the building hues of the neighborhood creating an interesting and vibrant space for all to enjoy.
