The 12th annual Relay for Life of Hoboken returns Saturday to Pier A.

The event, filled with live music, fitness classes and food, will run from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.

Teams of family and friends will gather at Pier A and take turns walking laps around the park to maintain one team member on the track at all times to represent the constant fight against cancer.

The relay also raises awareness and funds for the American Cancer Society while remembering those lost to the disease, celebrate survivors and honor caregivers.

The Relay for Life has raised more than $1 million over the past 11 years in Hoboken. The funds raised benefit the American Cancer Society, focusing on research, education, advocacy and patient services.

14-Story Mixed Use Building Proposed for Western Hoboken

There will be two public meetings this week to discuss the proposal to construct a 14-story residential and retail building in western Hoboken in exchange for 1 acre of property for park space and a public gymnasium for the city.

The city is considering a proposal from Bijou Properties to continue the redevelopment of the Monroe Center site and the Pino property near the corner of 7th and Jackson streets.

“The location of the building was selected to create a gateway and provide access to and expand upon the future courtyard that is required to be built behind the Monroe Center,” according to a city statement.

A public meeting will be held from 7:30 to 9 p.m. on Thursday and 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday at the Jubilee Center at 601 Jackson St.

The Planning Board previously approved 75 residential units, ground-floor retail space and no parking spaces at the Monroe Center Phase V site at the northwest corner of 7th and Monroe streets, according to a city statement.

The permitted zoning for the Pino site would allow for a four-story residential property for a total of 68 units and 63 parking spaces.

Bijou Properties has proposed to condense development onto a portion of those two sites in exchange for providing 1 acre of land and a public gymnasium to the city.

The development would also provide nine affordable housing units. However, the proposal calls for a taller building—14 stories high—on the north end of the Pino property with a total of 181 residential units, 120 parking spaces and retail space on the ground level.
