Hoboken-based architect Marchetto Higgins Stieve recently revealed new renderings for 184 Morgan Street, aka 331 Marin Boulevard, in Jersey City. Construction should soon begin for the 41-story residential building, located at the intersection of Marin Boulevard and Morgan Street. The structure will yield 482 residential units and contain 121 parking spaces, a 125-seat theater, and 14,000 square feet of amenities. The Albanese Group is the developer of the property.
According to renderings, it appears that 184 Morgan Street will come up short of skyscraper status, but it will nevertheless contribute to the density and skyline of Jersey City.
A seven-story podium will sit at the bottom of the building, from which the main residential portion will rise and culminate in multiple roof setbacks. A glass curtain wall will cover the tower in a staggered, multi-story pattern of white panels, breaking up the floor-to-ceiling windows. The podium features dark-colored paneling, and a section of the upper levels in the crown are highlighted with a similar touch.
The PATH train at the Grove Street station is less than a five-minute walk away around the corner, and the ferry at the Harborside ferry terminal is about a 12-minute walk. Local shops, dining, and retail options are spread out across downtown Jersey City. The light rail that traverses the waterfront to the east is also within walking distance. Marin Boulevard has easy and direct access to the Holland Tunnel.
Completion of 184 Morgan Street is slated for 2022.

Good morning yimby and David 🙂
Looks like a good building, saw the pile drivers across the street today. I am not sure if access to the Holland Tunnel is ever easy.
Everything is being built in Jersey City while Newark gets Section 8 buildings and other stuff that is geared towards the poor. A healthy city includes all income levels, a city can not survive when a third of the population is on some form of public assistance. Poverty breeds crime, drug abuse and other social ills. Maybe a little gentrification would be good for Newark. Just saying.
400 + apartments AND 121 parking places ! That’s madness for ant tenant or neighbors. How can city planners allow this to happen ?
Looks like decent skyline filler…
Newark’s day in the sun will come …
