Hoboken Terminal and Yard Complex Redevelopment (Hoboken, NJ)
STV was NJ TRANSIT’s project manager for the $175 million redevelopment and rehabilitation of its historic Hoboken Terminal and Yard Complex, one of the largest multimodal terminals in the United States. This facility integrates heavy and light rail passenger service, bus and ferry service plus PATH. STV led a large design team through multiple projects during a 15-year period that started with the development of a master plan for the site. Projects completed during this period included the rehabilitation of the terminal’s main waiting room; the modernization of Yard B; the construction of a new wheel truing facility and the rehabilitation of the Ferry Terminal. The STV-led team also prepared design-build documents for a reconstruction of the terminal’s historic 225-foot-high clock tower. STV provided mechanical, plumbing, fire protection, electrical, communications, security and industrial engineering design services for these projects.
The STV-led design team provided architectural and engineering services for the rehabilitation of the Hoboken Ferry Terminal in three phases. Work included stabilizing the building’s structure by underpinning the wood pile foundation system, installing a new raised floor to address flooding, restoring the water-side copper façade, replacing the decorative lighting system at the ferry slips, and relighting the Erie Lackawanna sign. The facility was officially reopened to the public in December 2011. For the first time in nearly 45 years, ferry service is again operating out of the historic slips at the Hoboken Ferry Terminal.
