Hollister Commences The Redevelopment of Two Properties in Downtown Hackensack

Parsippany-based Hollister Construction Services, a full-service construction manager specializing in residential, retail, corporate, educational, healthcare and industrial construction, has partnered with the Heritage Capital Group to revive 210 and 214 Main Street, two buildings located in the center of downtown Hackensack. The two buildings will be transformed into modern residential buildings with 127 units, providing residents with various exterior and interior amenities.

Heritage Capital Group, along with their partners at FCA-Orbita Group, purchased the unoccupied buildings in 2013 with the goal to preserve the properties and help transform Hackensack into a regional hub for living, shopping and entertainment.

“Having grown up in Bergen County and going to Hackensack as a child, we are excited to be a part of Hackensack’s revitalization.  The City has been fantastic to work with and is on the right track. We have a great team working on this project at Hollister along with Mark Zurlini at M&T Bank for the financing and Joe Siegel at Environetics,” stated Jeffrey Greenberg, Principal at Heritage Capital Group.

One of the city’s tallest and most architecturally significant structures, 210 Main Street is being transformed into a 100,000-square-foot residential apartment building. This iconic and notable art-deco bank building, previously occupied by Bank of America and vacant for several years, will be gutted and renovated while the façade and exterior will be preserved.

“The influx of residents from this and other residential projects in the area will have a tremendous positive economic impact on Main Street,” said Mayor John Labrosse.

The 10-story building will be extended vertically with a newly constructed 11th floor, providing a total of 90 new residential apartments. The building’s existing penthouse will be converted into three duplex apartments with exterior private balconies overlooking New York City to the east and Hackensack to the west. The building will also have two retail spaces at street-level.

Building residents will have access to exterior amenity space, along with interior common amenity spaces. Key common area amenities include a lobby reception, WiFi lounge, valet parking and porte-cochere, multi-function and game room, convenience store and a private fitness facility. The basement level will provide additional spaces for residents, including secure private storage compartments, bike storage room and a laundry room.

210 Main Street, which opened its doors in 1926 as the People’s Trust Co. Bank building, will remain a focal point for downtown Hackensack and will appeal to a young professional crowd.

“We have been working diligently with the Heritage Capital Group and Environetics, the project Architects and Engineers, from the onset of the project. From early budgeting to the preconstruction phase, we identified value-engineering options and helped finalize drawings to meet the project budget goals. We are confident that the new residential development at 210 and 214 Main Street in Hackensack will be enthusiastically embraced by the community,” said Michael L. Raimondi, senior estimator at Hollister.

214 Main Street, a 42,000-square-foot, four-story brick office building, will be transformed into a residential building offering a total of 37 apartment units. The residential building’s basement will provide residents with in-house private storage space and a laundry room. 214 Main Street and 210 Main Street will be inter-connected through a new walkway bridge that provides access to the new fitness facility in 210 Main Street.

Both 210 and 214 Main Street will undergo dramatic demolition to facilitate new building infrastructure elements such as new egress stairways, elevators, and fire protection, mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems.

Hollister has also partnered with the Heritage Capital Group to demolish and remove an existing three-story parking structure on 210 Moore Street and convert it into a surface parking lot. The new parking lot will serve the community at 210 and 214 Main Street.

The Hollister team leading this effort includes Kieran Flanagan, project executive; Dave Williams, project manager; Ed Wieczorek, assistant project manager; Joe St. Onge, project superintendent; Allison Koterba, project coordinator, and Michael L. Raimondi, senior estimator. Environetics is the project architect and engineer.
