Hackensack Transit Oriented Development

New Jersey
City Of Hackensack   
Urban | Suburban |
The Hackensack, New Jersey Transit Oriented Development (TOD) Report focuses on the process of a community-based vision to bring TOD to the areas surrounding the city’s two NJ TRANSIT rail station and its bus terminal, as well as the recommendations that resulted from the process. The development plan builds upon assets already present in Hackensack, such as its dense and diverse population, it being the seat of county government and that there is a growing health care sector centered on Hackensack University Medical Center. The report is a compilation of work generated by faculty, researchers and graduate students from the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) and the effort included a graduate-level Infrastructure Planning Studio at NJIT’s New Jersey School of Architecture and two Saturday morning visioning sessions to advance visions for each site with community support. The report details recommendations found for all three transit nodes as well as additional recommendations for the city to implement TOD.
