Permits have been filed for a 68-story mixed-use skyscraper at 242 Hudson Street in Jersey City. If approved, the 708-foot-tall building would be among the tallest structures in the state of New Jersey. Plaza VIII & IX Associates LLC, a subsidiary of Mack-Cali’s Roseland Residential Trust, is responsible for the development, which has previously been referred to as Harborside 8 and 9.
As reported by Jersey Digs, the city’s planning board gave Mack-Cali the thumbs up to subdivide the 169,000-square-foot property earlier this year, increasing the chances of multiple high-rises. This lines up with plans that include a revision to the layout of the nearby Lutze Biergarten, one of three towers projected for the site.
The proposed development will yield 680 residential units, 18,662 square feet of commercial space, and 505 parking spaces, of which 329 would be located within the building. The residential component will include 206 studios, 266 one-bedrooms, 183 two-bedrooms, and 25 three-bedrooms. The property is located steps from the Harborside light rail station on the New Jersey Transit.
Boston-based Elkus Manfredi Architects is listed as the architect of record.
An estimated completion date has not been announced.
