New renderings from Bilow Garrett Group Architects and Planners reveal a new six-story residential development near the waterfront edge of Fort Lee, New Jersey. The construction site is located at 2130 Center Avenue, immediately adjacent to I-95 thoroughfare leading up to the George Washington Bridge.
The second twin of The Modern Towers at Fort Lee officially opened its doors to residents in a ceremony yesterday, following a successful round of pre-completion closings.
We are living in a bit of a renaissance for New York City-area bridges. New spans are under construction for the Goethals, Kosciuszko, and Tappan Zee bridges, and the deck of the Bayonne Bridge is being raised. The world’s busiest bridge, the George Washington, is also having work done.
In 2014, the Fort Lee, N.J., skyline got its first new high-rise in over a decade. The Modern, at 800 Park Avenue, is a glassy, 496-foot-tall, 47-story, 450-unit rental building. Now, its twin is rapidly rising.
New buildings replace old ones quite frequently, and skylines evolve. It isn’t very often that a development literally redraws the map, but that’s what has happened with Hudson Lights, located in downtown Fort Lee, N.J.
