Activity has yet to begin at 444 Washington Boulevard in Jersey City, the site of a 722-foot-tall skyscraper from Gerner Kronick + Valcarcel Architects and Tower Cove Jersey City Urban Renewal. In addition to the 70-story tower, which will contain 950 residential units, there will be a second 575-foot-tall structure, as well as a neighboring six-story building containing 17,192 square feet of retail space and a 382-vehicle parking garage.
444 Washington Boulevard
Renderings have been revealed of Avalon Tower, a 70-story skyscraper that will be one of the tallest structures to rise in Jersey City and all of the state. Approved last month, the 950-unit building will be located at 444 Washington Boulevard near the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway. The developer, known as Tower Cove Jersey City Urban Renewal, plans to build the tower on the northwest corner of the site, which is currently occupied by a parking lot. Part of the project includes public spaces called the East Coast Greenway Plaza and Overlook Plaza along Thomas Gangemi Drive that will offer Manhattan skyline views, a pedestrian terrace, a children’s play area, and a dog run.
YIMBY has a preliminary rendering of what could become one of the tallest skyscrapers to rise in Jersey City and all of the state. Applicant Tower Cove Jersey City Urban Renewal is planning to construct a 950-unit mixed-use structure at 444 Washington Street, just steps away from the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway and directly behind the two-building, five-story Avalon Cove housing complex. The image shows the tower standing at the southeastern corner of Washington Street and Thomas Gangemi Drive.
