The first stages of excavation at 25 Columbus Drive are apparent as the asphalt from the former parking lot is now being ripped up. This will become the future site of a new mixed-use complex that will rise 626 feet tall and 57 floors high. Handel Architects is designing the proposed structure, while Mack Cali is the developer of the downtown Jersey City project. A total of 750 rental apartments, a 35,000-square-foot privately-funded public school for levels pre-K through first grade, four storefronts covering 16,485 square feet of retail space, and a public plaza will soon be built.
Leasing at 90 Columbus in downtown Jersey City is nearing its end, with over 400 of the 529 apartments now spoken for since the 51-story tower came to market last November. 90 Columbus is the fourth and final phase of The Columbus Collection, a mixed-use development by Ironstate Development Company and Panepinto Properties. There are a total of 1,484 rental residences, a 152-suite Residence Inn by Marriott hotel, an approximate 1,000-parking space enclosed garage, and street-level retail space housing a Base Gym and Sprove Market Place.
The Lively recently topped-out at 321 Warren Street in Jersey City’s Powerhouse Arts District. Today, YIMBY has another update on the 18-story mixed-use structure. Due to its quick construction schedule, the development is expected to debut this summer with move-ins around July. It is designed by Fogarty Finger Architecture and developed by LMC. There will be 180 apartments, 1,343 square feet of ground-floor retail, and a 14,200-square-foot black-box theater with dedicated space for local artists.
Construction on 321 Warren Street, aka The Lively, has reached the eighteenth and final floor over downtown Jersey City. As of YIMBY’s last update back in early November, the mixed-use tower had just climbed above the double-height ground floor space, reaching the fifth floor. Three months later, the reinforced concrete structure is almost at its pinnacle. The building is being designed by Fogarty Finger Architecture and developed by LMC. There will be 217,000 square feet of interior space when completed.
Forgarty Finger Architecture has unveiled official renderings of a new mixed-use residential building in Jersey City. The rising property is located at 387 8th Street, and sits squarely within the new Enos Jones Redevelopment Plan Area. Given the property’s location, developer RAFA Realty was required to seek special approvals from the Jersey City Redevelopment Agency (JCRA), which were granted in September 2018.
