The brick and glass curtain wall is nearing completion on 351 Marin Boulevard, a 383-foot-tall residential tower in downtown Jersey City. Designed by Hollwich Kushner in collaboration with HLW International and developed in a joint venture between KRE Group and Northwestern Mutual, the 38-story edifice will yield 507 residential units, 8,000 square feet of commercial space, 203 parking spaces, and a 4,500-square-foot public plaza with a freestanding pavilion. The property is located on a rectangular parcel bound by Marin Boulevard to the east, 1st Street to the north, Bay Street to the south, and low-rise buildings to the west.

Almost all of the façade has been installed since our last update in November, when only the first floor had received its final exterior treatment. Now, only the gap where the exterior hoist is attached remains to be completed.

Photos show how the façade highlights the multiple chamfered triangular corners on the lower half of the superstructure. This design pulls back from the street and is by far the most unique and interesting architectural aspect, setting the project apart from the neighboring buildings. Ventilation grilles are found underneath each window, along with the additional use of gray metal panels.

The residential program will include 205 studios, 243 one-bedrooms, and 59 two-bedroom units. There will also be residential amenities, though this part of the project is still unclear. The Grove Street PATH station is a three-minute walk to the south at the intersection of Christopher Columbus Drive and Marin Boulevard, while the Hudson River and waterfront esplanade is found to the east, alongside ferry access and places to eat and see the skyline of Manhattan.

No formal completion date for 351 Marin Boulevard has been announced, though YIMBY leasing is expected to begin this fall.

    Another boring Jersey City new box with very weird corner indentations.

  2. Though those corners are a bit weird, I do think they make the building a bit more interesting, considering the rest of the building is kind of boring.

  3. Another phenomenal tower for NJ. Is there a habitable space in those corners? Instead of furniture does the tenant lie on the glass?

  4. Something very Star Destroyer about this corner angles. Can’t quite put me finger on it, but I like them.
