There appears to a “Green District” of sorts emerging in the Mile Square City as another medicinal pot dispensary is being proposed in the neighborhood near the PATH station.
Colorado-based Terrapin, who became one of the country’s first licensed medical marijuana providers in 2009, has intentions of opening a new outpost in the Riverview Historical Plaza building at 86 River Street. Formerly home to a bank branch, the company is working with Hoboken-based MVMK Architects to revamp the 3,500-square foot space into their latest location.
Terrapin says their decision comes after nearly three years of community outreach, which includes partnering with several organizations in the hopes of creating a positive local impact. The company has aligned with several groups including Jersey City-based WomenRising, Oasis, Hudson Pride Center, the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union, and Project Help, a group dedicated to serving homeless veterans in northern New Jersey.
