The new developments comprising Jersey City’s current boom don’t just come in high-rise formats, and Fogarty Finger has already designed The Art House, a 120-unit building in the Powerhouse Arts District. Now, YIMBY can reveal another of the firm’s projects across the Hudson River, this time at 360 9th Street.

The building is located in the Hamilton Park Historic District and will replace a one-story and 80,000 square foot factory, which sold to 360 9 Street LLC for $5.3 million back in 2012.

Fogarty Finger’s plans for the 130,000-square foot structure are decidedly contextual, and per the firm’s website, the facade will echo the Historic District’s “rhythmic brick rowhouses.”

Totaling 75 units, the building will greatly improve upon its industrial predecessor, with retail also featured on the ground floor. The rendered structure is the first phase of a much larger 340,000 square foot redevelopment, and the next components will hopefully feature equally attractive designs.

Fogarty’s plans will likely result in solid urban infill that contributes both to the streetscape and the housing stock, offering a more pedestrian-friendly feel than many of the denser developments along the Jersey City waterfront. While the scope of those towers is a good thing, their interactivity with the grid is often lacking, though newer projects like Urban Ready Living feature significant retail components in their podiums, which would otherwise (likely) only be occupied by parking.

No completion date has been announced.
