Town of Harrison: Waterfront Redevelopment Plan


Town of Harrison Waterfront Redevelopment Plan

HEYER, GRUEL & ASSOCIATES prepared the Redevelopment Plan for a 250+ acre former industrial waterfront area in Harrison, New Jersey. 

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.

Features 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 station.
  • 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.
