Construction is nearing the halfway mark at 533 Mercer Street, aka 289 Jordan, in Jersey City. The superstructure has been steadily rising and will eventually top out as one of the tallest buildings to the west of the main downtown district. The 16-story structure is designed by Marchetto Higgins Stieve Architects and developed by Mercer Jordan LLC, an affiliate of New York-based company Sequoia Development Group, GRID Real Estate, and Dresdner Robin. The mixed-use project is expected to contain 300 apartments.
533 Mercer Street
Construction at 533 Mercer Street, aka 289 Jordan, has risen above street level in the McGinley Square neighborhood of Jersey City. Located at the intersection of Mercer Street and Jordan Street, the 16-story mixed-use residential property will contain a total of 300 apartments. These will include 56 affordable housing units, 138 studios, 90 one-bedroom homes, 33 two-bedrooms, and six three-bedroom homes. The project is being designed by Marchetto Higgins Stieve Architects and developed by Mercer Jordan LLC, an affiliate of New York-based company Sequoia Development Group, GRID Real Estate and Dresdner Robin.
Sequoia Development Group and GRID Real Estate are planning a 16-story, 300-unit mixed-use building at 533 Mercer Street, located on the corner of Jordan Avenue in the McGinley Square section of Jersey City. Dubbed 289 Jordan, it would include apartments ranging from studios to three-bedrooms, of which 56 units, or roughly 19 percent, would be designated as affordable. There would also be 4,000 square feet of retail space on the ground floor, Jersey Digs reported. Marchetto Higgins Stieve Architects is responsible for the design. Before the as-of-right project can rise, a collection of single- to three-story mixed-use structures must first be demolished.
