Harrison Waterfront Redevelopment Plan
HEYER, GRUEL & ASSOCIATES prepared
the Redevelopment Plan for a 250+ acre former
industrial waterfront area in Harrison,
The Plan capitalizes on assets such as its
regional accessibility, the presence of
the PATH station within the area, the character
and history of the area, and its location
along the Passaic River. It also recognizes
constraints to development such as environmental
contamination due to its former industrial
heritage and its location within the 100
year flood plain.
The Plan provides the groundwork for the
development of a diverse mix of uses and
public amenities that will achieve the goals
and objectives of the Plan. The Plan is
based upon smart growth principles.
of the Plan include:
- A public waterfront walkway and park along
the Passaic River that integrates an Army
Corps flood control project.
- A street oriented mixed use boulevard.
- A waterfront corporate center which includes
office space, a hotel and conference center.
- A professional soccer stadium.
- Improvements to the PATH station and potential
reopening of the Harrison New Jersey Transit
- Residential opportunities.
- Implementation strategies including partnership
and funding opportunities.
HGA is currently assisting the Town in implementing
the Plan. The Town has executed agreements
with four redevelopers after extensive redeveloper
interest. Significant portions of the Plan
have been constructed and/or underway.
