|Abstract: ||This thesis explores the necessity to develop the area around the Hoboken Terminal into a regional attraction. The site is targeted as a "focal point for development" to become "more of a destination" and a "gateway" for the city.
Although boasting ideal accessibility and panoramic views of Manhattan, the area exists as a gap along the Hudson River waterfront. It should be a social destination, a Transit-Oriented Development, and a link between the two expanding neighborhoods.
Anchoring the plan will be a minor league ballpark just south of the Hoboken Terminal in Jersey City. This ballpark will serve as a year-round magnet for regional activity and as a cultural attraction adjacent to associated mixed use, residential, and recreational development. It will explore how a stadium should define and be defined by its urban environment and the role it should play in the context of the city.|
