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.

Exterior work at 40 East End Avenue on Manhattan’s Upper East Side is now complete, and YIMBY has a look at a new set of photos of the project thanks to developer Lightstone Group. The 100,000-square-foot, 28-unit residential building rises on the northern corner of East 81st Street and East End Avenue. The complex features two- to five-bedroom apartments, a maisonette, and a duplex penthouse with a private rooftop terrace. Pricing for the residences ranges from $3 million to $25 million. Deborah Berke Partners collaborated with Gerner Kronick + Valcarcel Architects on the design of the 210-foot-tall, 20-story project, and Corcoran Sunshine is responsible for sales and marketing.
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.
