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 is now an economic engine for the region. Harmon Cove 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.
First begun in 1966 in the abandoned rail yards that had connected pre-tunnel transportation between Weehawken, NJ and Midtown, NY. Hartz transformed the 48-acre New Jersey 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.
