Woburn-based firm to provide construction management services for the 62-unit development

WOBURN, MA (July 15, 2015) – Tocci Building Companies (Tocci), a Boston-area construction management company and recognized leader in virtual design and construction solutions, announced today that it has broken ground on a 66,294 square-foot (sf) apartment development located at 34 Meadowlands Parkway in Secaucus, NJ.

Situated alongside the Hackensack River near Route 3, the facility will consist of a three-story, wood-framed, 62-unit apartment building with a project cost totaling $9,500,000. Tocci will work closely with developers Hartz Mountain Industries, Inc., on behalf of property owner 34 Meadowlands Parkway, LLC. Notably, this project marks the third collaboration between Tocci and Hartz Mountain Industries, Inc., having previously partnered on successful developments including the luxury apartment community at 45 Meadowlands Parkway.

It is a testament to our collaborative and highly-efficient approach that we continue to take on significant projects and grow our long-term relationships. This development represents a positive change for an underutilized parcel, and we are confident that our open book approach and lean construction practices will maximize the potential for this unique riverfront property while providing attractive housing for the greater community.
