“Post office improvements include new mechanical, plumbing and electrical systems and the expansion and reconfiguration of our loading dock. The addition of another freight elevator will result in faster mail movement and provide access to much needed additional workroom space. Finally, the proposed underground postal vehicle parking garage will let us securely park and access our delivery vehicles off-street and out of sight. We look forward to working with you as this Project moves ahead.” – Arthur T. Tate, Postmaster Hoboken, NJ
“KMS Development Partners is a nationally respected developer with a track record of developing similar projects. The proposed development will transform and underutilized, tax exempt property into an upscale, modern hotel with distinctive architecture and rooftop event space. It will generate an estimated $1.7 million in annual tax revenue without adding any additional schoolchildren or commensurate increase in City services. On behalf of the Hudson County Building & Trades Council and the 20,000 men and women we represent, I am submitting our full endorsement of the proposed hotel development.” – Patrick Kelleher, President, Hudson County Building & Trades Council
“I’m a Hoboken resident and I support the proposed Hilton Hotel on the waterfront. We need more options for people to stay during short-term visits to the City. And, given all of the economic benefits it the new hotel will produce, the proposed waterfront hotel is really a win-win for the City.” – Hoboken resident, Neil Shah.
“The hotel proposed behind the Post Office, facing the waterfront, will animate and greatly improve what is now a bleak site, with poor pedestrian access to Pier A Park. The hotel proposed by KMS will be a great addition to the south waterfront, replacing a bleak view of the rear of the Post Office with a new building and greatly improved streetscape. This is an opportunity the City cannot afford to miss.” – Ron Hine, Executive Director and Founding Member, Fund for a Better Waterfront
“This project will enhance an underutilized part of Hoboken and will provide more hotel capacity for visitors.” – Maria Nieves, President & CEO, Hudson County Chamber of Commerce
“This will be a great addition to our community and especially for job growth.” – Catherine Mirasol, Asst. Director, Center for Business & Industry, Hudson Community College
“This project will provide more local jobs and bring more money to local businesses because of increased tourism.” – Emma Taylor, Owner, Milk Sugar Love, Inc. Jersey City
