Construction is nearing topping out on 32 Oakland Avenue, a 15-story residential building in Jersey City, New Jersey. Designed by Michels & Waldron Associates, the 446,917-square-foot structure will yield 297 residential units and 58,266 square feet of office space spread over two floors, as well as an automated parking garage with a capacity of 181 vehicles. The property is rising from a large plot at the corner of Oakland Avenue and Washburn Street.
Recent photos show the reinforced concrete superstructure reaching the final levels, with crews putting together the interior metal frame stud walls on the 14th floor. The crane is continuing to deliver materials around the roof, and other workers were forming the inner core walls with concrete blocks. Topping out should occur in the coming weeks.
Photos taken from a distance show 32 Oakland Avenue with its blue waterproof membrane and insulation boards. The property is located within close proximity to Journal Squared and the nearby Journal Square PATH station.
To the east along Washburn Avenue is 345 Baldwin Avenue, another residential building underway.
The main rendering shows the façade composed of brick masonry in varied colors, with an orthodox window grid on the residential levels and floor-to-ceiling glass on the lower stories. The structure will be topped with a landscaped outdoor terrace featuring a swimming pool and hot tub, and will provide panoramic views of the entire Manhattan skyline to the east across the Hudson River. The entrance and exit to the on-site parking garage will be located along Washburn Street.
32 Oakland Avenue is estimated to be complete sometime in 2023.
