Hoboken Green Infrastructure Strategic Plan

Hoboken, NJ

A comprehensive plan set to protect Hoboken from future floods through resilience design.

Severely affected by Superstorm Sandy, The City of Hoboken experienced extreme flooding due to inadequate stormwater infrastructure. Perkins Eastman created the Hoboken Green Infrastructure Strategic Plan, seeking to develop place-based stormwater management and flood control strategies and identify implementable climate adaptation measures. The plan mitigates future flooding events, focusing on cost-effective green infrastructure comprised of vegetation, soil, and a detention basin system that all reduce stress on traditional drainage systems. Part of North Jersey’s Regional Plan for Sustainable Development, the project is a joint effort with The City of Hoboken, Hudson County, North Hudson Sewerage Authority, Stevens Institute of Technology, Hoboken Quality of Life Coalition, and HOPES Community Action Partnership, Inc.
