159 Morgan Street’s Façade Continues to Rise in Jersey City

159 Morgan Street, developed by KABR Group

Façade work is continuing on the forthcoming Canopy by Hilton hotel at 159 Morgan Street in Downtown Jersey City. The ground-up, reinforced concrete structure is topped out at ten stories and will yield a total of 211 rooms. The project includes a rooftop bar and 6,500 square feet of ground-floor retail space, with the main lobby located on the second floor and connected to street level by an elevator. KABR Group is the developer of the property, which will be the first Canopy by Hilton location in New Jersey. Katerra is in charge of construction of the mixed-use building.

Photos show construction workers hanging metal panels and laying bricks on multiple sections of the outside walls. The site is located adjacent to the mirrored, twin residential buildings at 70-90 Columbus Drive.

Access to New York City via the PATH train is right next door at the Grove Street station. There is also the more scenic option of taking the ferry across the Hudson River by walking down to the waterfront toward the Exchange Place PATH station.

A completion date has not been announced, though it appears likely to happen sometime early next year.
