Revealed: ‘Hudson Lights’ in Fort Lee

Across the Hudson, Fort Lee is seeing a mini-development boom; besides twinned 49-story towers that are currently rising, an adjacent project dubbed ‘Hudson Lights,’ by Tucker Development, is also in the works.

Renderings of Hudson Lights – from illustrator Martin Demczyk’s site – depict several low to mid-rise structures, with apartments sitting atop an extensively retailed street-scape. Plans for the entirety of the project include 193,000 square feet of retail, 477 housing units, a 430,000 square foot office building, and a 175-room hotel – though the first phase will only include retail and residential. Given the suburban location, the 864-space parking compliment to phase one is to be expected.

The developers certainly seem set on creating a vibrant street-scape, which – in a neighborhood caught between urban and suburban characteristics – is crucial. Hudson Lights will sit on 8 acres of a greater 15-acre parcel, and once the entirety is built-out, Fort Lee will have the beginnings of a legitimately urban core.

Hudson-adjacent cities in New Jersey are seeing the beginnings of a boom; with the cost of new construction in Manhattan, the trend will likely accelerate. In addition to the new projects in Fort Lee, major developments will soon transform Jersey City’s skyline.
