The Jersey City Planning Board unanimously approved plans to construct a 60-story mixed-use tower at 400-420 Marin Boulevard. Led by G&S Investors, the tower is the latest component of Jersey City’s Hudson Exchange redevelopment plan that aims to invigorate the area with big-box and local retail, quality housing, and entertainment destinations in an area surrounding the Harsimus Cove Light Rail station.
The tower will top out at 634 feet, making it the fifth-tallest building in Jersey City.
Designed by Beyer Blinder Belle, 400-420 Marin Boulevard will include an 85,000-square-foot ShopRite supermarket, a 508-vehicle parking garage, 430 bicycle docks, and 802 apartments. Additional retail tenants will occupy first floor suites, ShopRite will take up the second floor, and the parking garage will occupy a total of three floors.
As specified in the proposals, the residential component is expected to include 80 studios, 399 one-bedrooms, 295 two-bedrooms, and 38 three-bedrooms. It is not clear if any of the apartments will be priced as affordable housing units.
Amenity spaces will include a swimming pool, a landscaped rooftop garden above the six-floor podium, a fitness center, a children’s room, resident lounges, and a flexible event space.
The development site is currently occupied by a shuttered Bed Bath & Beyond retail store and a surface-level parking lot. The project team has not confirmed when construction will break ground, nor when the project is expected to debut.
