In 1969, Hartz Mountain acquired a 750-acre tract of barren land in the New Jersey Meadowlands municipality of Secaucus, NJ. The land was considered by many to be too difficult to build upon. Hartz created roads, installed utilities and developed a warehouse distribution park, which evolved into Harmon Cove, Hartz' first major mixed-use development.
This thriving community and an economic engine for the region now includes: Over 1,400 residential townhouses, high-rise luxury condos and multifamily residential apartments, 13 million square feet of office and warehouse space, retail outlet stores, four hotels and the Hudson Regional Hospital.
This Hartz Development was first begun in 1966 in the abandoned rail yards that had connected pre-tunnel transportation between Midtown, New York and New Jersey. Hartz transformed the 48-acre site with stunning views of the NYC skyline and the Hudson River. The vibrant mixed-use community has 1,866 residential units in four separate complexes, a 350-room Sheraton Hotel, two office buildings, four restaurants, a Whole Foods and various other shops and amenities. The newest 262-unit building will be completed Q4 2024.
In October of 2018, Hartz entered the Long Island market for the first time with the acquisition of the 52.88-acre Newsday headquarters and newspaper printing facility at 235 Pinelawn Road. In 2019, Hartz purchased another 31.3-acres nearby at 195 Spagnoli Road, Melville, NY.
Groundbreaking of the first of the two industrial buildings at Pinelawn Road took place in March 2021. A 246,500 square foot building was completed Q1 2022, and quickly leased to Amazon. A 599,983 square foot building will be completed Q3 2022. The state-of-the-art buildings include 40-foot clear ceilings and ample trailer parking.

Hartz began redevelopment of 30.438-acre Quest Diagnostics’ site in Teterboro, NJ in 2021. The new TEB Transport Center will be available Q3 2023 and features a 515,421 square foot warehouse with 87 dock doors, 4 drive-ins and 40-foot clear ceiling height, 328 car parking spaces (+ 65 banked) and 94 trailer parking spaces.

Hartz is redeveloping the 30-acre, 750 Walnut Drive Complex into a mix of light industrial and residential development.
The residential project features two 4-story luxury apartment buildings, comprising a total of 250 units. Amenities include a 2.8-acre park with ¼ mile walking path and basketball court, rear courtyard space with grass picnic areas, lounge seating and barbeques, fitness center and electrical vehicle charging stations.
The light industrial project will include two 30-foot-high warehouse buildings of 109,200 and 132,000 square feet, available Q4 2023.
Hartz acquired the 37.7-acre Buckeye Logistics energy storage terminal in late 2021 and is planning on a conversion of the site for Port-Centric trailer and container logistics. Located adjacent to Port Newark, the site offers great access to Newark Liberty International Airport, Conrail’s main Northeast hub at Oak Island, the Ports of Newark and Bayonne. The property’s unique location will offer access to a market of 13.3 million consumers within one hour and 27.7 million within 2 hours.
