Principals from Hartz Mountain Industries joined Weehawken Mayor Richard Tuner and Whole Foods Market Northeast Region President Christina Minardi to break ground on a 32,949 s/f Whole Foods Market 365 store within Hartz Mountain’s Lincoln Harbor mixed-used development on the Weehawken waterfront.
The “365” concept will bring affordable and convenient grocery shopping to the area and will be a complement to Lincoln Harbor’s mix of uses.
The 2.5 million square-foot development currently comprises over 1,000 existing rental and condominium units, a hotel, restaurants, commercial space, ferry and light rail transportation and open space – all set against the midtown Manhattan skyline.
Hartz Mountain plans on adding over 567 residential units to the development within the next 18-24 months.
“This is an important piece of the overall puzzle as we continue to create what we believe is the region’s premier live, work, shop, dine and play destination,” said Gus Milano, President and CEO of Hartz Mountain Industries.
“Public amenities and services are an important part of that formula, and adding a Whole Foods Market 365 store to the mix will go a long way to serving not only the residents of our adjacent luxury Estuary residential building, but all future residential projects, commercial employees and the greater Weehawken and New Jersey Gold Coast communities as well.”
Rising at the corner of Waterfront Terrace and Riverview Drive, the new Whole Foods Market 365 store will be located in a high-density area.
Developed by Hartz Mountain Industries, Lincoln Harbor has attracted companies to its existing office buildings that include UBS.
