Construction continues to progress on Atlantic Street Park, a new outdoor park / amphitheater in the City of Hackensack, which represents another important step in the revitalization efforts of the downtown.
The approximately $600,000 project was partially funded by an Open Space Grant from Bergen County. DMR collaborated with the City, the Upper Main Street Alliance and Boswell Engineering on the project.
The park will include an amphitheater for outdoor performances, grass areas, trellises, seat-walls, benches and street trees and lights to provide a modern, lively, downtown atmosphere found in other, competing downtown housing markets.
Redevelopment initiatives in the downtown began nearly three years ago with the adoption of the Rehabilitation Plan for the Main Street Area. In addition to the progression of Atlantic Street Park, a few of the successes of the rehabilitation plan seen in the City include the beginning of the two-way street conversion of Main Street and the anticipated opening of the Meridia Metro, Heritage Capital and Alkova Companies developments, which include approximately 700 new residential units. An additional 1,000 units of new residential development is in the planning stages throughout the City.
The project is expected to be completed in the summer of 2015.
