The Secaucus junction is a point where various forces collide. The forces we declared are the current warehouse activity, the develop pressure, and the need for more data centers. My project starts at the point where the MEADOWLOOP absorbs all the warehouses and when only the housing development pressure and data center need is left with a large area cleared.
Data centers act as buffers between the new city and the main traffic corridors. The waste heat of data centers provide heat for the Greenhouses that form a new public domain.
