Construction is progressing at 170 Erie Street, a nine-story mixed-use residential building in the Jersey City neighborhood of Hamilton Park. Designed by Studio V Architecture and developed by Silverman, the project will yield 57 residential units, 40,000 square feet of office space, 7,500 square feet of ground-floor retail space, and 85 parking spots.
Photos show the reinforced concrete superstructure well above street level with some of the first setbacks already visible. The building is about halfway to topping out and could likely do so before the end of the year. Curtain wall installation has yet to commence.
The parking facility will span the first two levels, above which will sit the office space on the third and fourth floors. The residential component will occupy the final five stories, with some units featuring private balconies. The main rendering shows a grid of floor-to-ceiling windows and what looks like brick masonry in between. There appears to be several irregular voids and cutouts that make way for terraces across each elevation at varying heights. Amenities will be located on the top floor and include a roof deck, a lounge, a business center, and a media room. 170 Erie Street will be one of the first buildings in Jersey City with semi-automated parking.
The construction project is bound by 10th Street to the north, Erie Street to the west, and 9th Street to the south, while two adjacent buildings and a centralized rear yard all flank the eastern perimeter. Newport Centre is two streets to the east, Hamilton Park is one block away to the southwest, and the entrance to the Holland Tunnel is close by to the north via 12th Street.
170 Erie Street is scheduled to be completed in the spring of 2021, as noted on Silverman’s website.
