A new world-class, science-focused public high school known as Liberty Science Center High School will soon begin construction within SciTech Scity in Jersey City. Developed under a public-private partnership between the City of Jersey City, County of Hudson, Hudson County Schools of Technology, and Liberty Science Center, the parties will share financial cost alongside philanthropic donors. The school will be built adjacent to the Liberty Science Center in Jersey City and offer science, technology, engineering, and math classes for 400 students in grades 9-12. Students will have access to a work education program with over 200 technology startup companies that will also be a part of SciTech Scity.
Harrison North of Guyon in New Jersey is the latest project to surface as part of the Harrison Waterfront Redevelopment Plan. As revealed by Jersey Digs, the mixed-use, 20-story tower is comprised of office and retail components. Located North of the Harrison PATH station, the tower will become the town’s tallest building and include 242,276 square feet of office space, 15,027 square feet of retail, and an unspecified hotel.
In late October, the Union City planning board approved plans for a four-story, 32-unit mixed-use building at 511-519 32nd Street, located in central Union City, in Hudson County, New Jersey. The project will feature four ground-floor commercial-retail units, in addition to 35 off-street parking spaces. Crest Point Development, which acquired the site a year ago for $1.425 million, is the developer, Jersey Digs reported. The 21,500-square-foot property is currently occupied by a small, single-story bank. A construction timeline has not been revealed.
Steel is rising into place on the three-story, 340,000-square-foot High Tech High School under construction at the end of Paul Amico Way, located in Laurel Hill Park, in southern Secaucus, New Jersey. The new vocational school will boast four academies, including performing arts, applied sciences, culinary arts, and architecture and engineering, the Jersey Journal reported. There will also be a cafeteria, a 350-seat theater, and a parking garage, according to Real Estate Weekly. The Hudson County Improvement Authority and the Hudson County Schools of Technology are the developers. DMR Architects is the design architect, while RSC Architects is serving as the executive architect. Opening is expected in September of 2018.
Construction is close to kicking off on the six-story, 138-unit residential building planned at 18 East 21st Street, on the southern end of Bayonne. That’s in Hudson County, New Jersey. Dubbed 19 East, it will contain luxury rental apartments ranging from studios to two-bedrooms. Amenities will include a fitness center, two rooftop terraces, a business center, and a 212-car parking garage on the bottom two floors. A plaza will be built on the plot’s frontage along Broadway. Ingerman Development Company is the developer. Completion is expected in early 2018, Jersey Digs reported. Much of the seven-parcel assemblage was vacant with the exception of a three-story apartment building, which has since been demolished.
