Update on Monarch Lawsuit & County Freeholder Meeting

Monday, Sep 22, 2014


The City of Hoboken is continuing to oppose, through a variety of means, Shipyard Associate’s attempts to develop residential buildings on a waterfront pier, known as the Monarch project, in place of promised recreation amenities. In particular, the City is highly concerned about public safety issues associated with waterfront pier development from the well-documented flood hazard threats posed by major storm events such as Superstorm Sandy.

The City of Hoboken is legally challenging the Monarch project on several fronts:

1. The City is appealing to the appellate court the decision by New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection to approve a permit for the Monarch project.

2. The City is appealing the Superior Court’s decision regarding the Hoboken Planning Board, which rejected Shipyard’s application to amend a prior Development Agreement until all legal issues were resolved.

3. The City is fighting a lawsuit in federal court filed by Shipyard challenging the City’s flood hazard protection ordinance which bans the development of commercial and residential development on waterfront piers. More >
