Construction is rising on 26 Van Reipen Avenue, a 27-story residential tower in Jersey City‘s seven-building, 2.1-million-square-foot Homestead Place master plan. Designed by C3D Architecture and developed by Nambar Group, the 315-foot-tall structure will yield 235 rental apartments in studio to three-bedroom layouts. The property will also feature ground-floor retail, office space on the third floor, and a swimming pool. The development is located at the intersection of Van Reipen Avenue and Homestead Place.
Recent photos show the reinforced concrete superstructure standing 11 stories high, with an array of wooden formwork on the upper levels assisting in the formation of the latest floors. Crews could likely reach the midpoint of 26 Van Reipen Avenue by this summer, with a topping out closer to the end of the year.
From above, we can see steel rebar laid down for the next concrete pour.
The renderings show the façade composed of floor-to-ceiling windows with a uniform grid of sleek metal paneling. There is a subtle cantilever on the fourth story, and the building is divided into five stacked boxes with horizontal bands. A flat roof parapet caps the tower.
Below is a plan view of the entire Homestead Place development with the address and location of each building.
A completion date for 26 Van Reipen Avenue has not been announced, but sometime in the latter half of 2023 is conceivable.
