Exterior work is nearing completion on 88 Regent Street, a 32-story mixed-use tower in the Liberty Harbor North Redevelopment in Jersey City. Designed by Marchetto Higgins Stieve and developed by 88 Regent Street, LLC, the project will yield 392 rental apartments, 9,110 square feet of retail space, and 5,595 square feet of commercial office space. The site is located at the corner of Regent Street and Jersey Avenue, directly across from the Jersey Avenue light rail station and the Jersey City Medical Center.
Since our last update back in early November, the reinforced concrete superstructure has topped out and almost the entirety of its glass curtain wall has been installed.
The safety cocoon netting and construction have both been taken down, while the exterior hoist remains attached to the curved southwestern corner. The overall envelope is uniform in appearance and goes around the multiple right-angled corners on the southern elevation and the flatter sides on the rest of the building’s perimeter.
Work is also progressing on the retaining walls and landscaping between 88 Regent Street and the light rail tracks.
Residential amenities for 88 Regent Street have yet to disclosed, but they are expected to be located on the 13th story, which is on top of the podium. The building will also contain space for a multi-level parking garage with a capacity for 305 spaces. Alongside the adjacent Jersey Avenue light rail station is the Liberty Harbor-Marin Boulevard ferry stop on the Hudson River. These make it easy to get from the location to downtown Jersey City, Hoboken, and the Weehawken waterfront. The PATH train to the World Trade Center and Newark Penn Station is found at the Grove Street and Exchange Place stations along Christopher Columbus Drive to the north, and the Paulus Hook ferry terminal is a brisk walk to the east by the Goldman Sachs skyscraper along the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway.
88 Regent Street looks like it could be completed closer to the end of this year, or in the first half of early 2022 at the latest.
