Construction is now six stories above street level on the first of two 15-story, mixed-use buildings under development at 207 Van Vorst Street, in Jersey City’s Paulus Hook section. Work, presumably excavation, has also begun on the second building. Fields Development Group is the developer and Marchetto Higgins Stieve Architects is behind the design.
A groundbreaking ceremony was recently held for the four-story, 64-unit mixed-use building planned at 455 Ocean Avenue, located on the corner of Dwight Street, in Jersey City’s Greenville section. The project, dubbed Dr. Lane Frances Edwards Apartments, will boast ground-floor commercial retail space and a mix of supportive and affordable rental apartments. There will be five units set aside for homeless veterans, while the other 59, comprised of one-, two- and three-bedrooms, will rent at below-market rates to families of a limited income, the Jersey Journal reported. The Jersey City Redevelopment Agency (JCRA) is the developer and Kitchen & Associates is behind the design.
A rendering has been revealed of the planned 15-story, 113-unit mixed-use building at 87 Newkirk Street, in the Journal Square section of Jersey City. The project will measure 129,500 square feet in total, featuring 5,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space, followed by 21,500 square feet of co-working space on the second and third floors. The residential units above will be rental apartments configured in studios and co-living suites with multiple bedrooms.
The six-story, 93-unit residential project planned at 440-446 Whiton Street, located on the corner of Ash Street in the Bergen-Lafayette section of Jersey City, has been granted a 20-year tax abatement, Jersey Digs reported. The project was approved by the Jersey City Planning Board earlier this year. Construction is expected to begin later this year, with completion scheduled in early 2018. It’s unclear if the apartments will be rentals or condominiums, although a 74-car parking garage is included. Ash Urban Redevelopment is developing, though the vacant site’s architect and design have not yet been revealed.
Joint venture PH Urban Renewal, comprised of developers L+M Development Partners and Low-Income Housing Corporation, is proposing to develop a mixed-use tower at 25 Columbus Drive, in the Paulus Hook section of Jersey City. At this point, the project is expected to include up to 750 residential units, of which five percent (37 units) would be designated as affordable, the Jersey Journal reported. The tower’s base would feature a 35,000-square-foot, 200-student privately-funded public school for levels pre-K through first grade.
