About the Project:

When the 14st Street Viaduct in Hoboken, New Jersey needed replacement, landscape architects led the effort to incorporate the new structure into the context of its historic surroundings. Interpreting history in a modern context, the team carefully selected architectural treatments and finishes that matched the community. The landscape architects also helped activate the unused spaces beneath the viaduct, creating safe and attractive recreational and gathering places for the community. The new viaduct allowed brownfield areas to be repurposed into valued community spaces around an important regional landmark.
