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.
Construction has topped out on the 13-story, 240-unit mixed-use building under development at 3 Journal Square Plaza, in Jersey City‘s Journal Square section. Photos of the structure were recently posted to the YIMBY Forums. Dubbed The Residences at 3 Journal Square and revealed by YIMBY roughly a year ago, it will encompass 219,446 square feet. There will be retail space and residential amenities on the ground floor, followed by rental apartments above. Known amenities include a four-level underground parking garage, which the project was built atop, and a rooftop terrace. Hartz Mountain and Panepinto Properties are the developers. Marchetto Higgins Stieve Architects is the design architect and the Childs Dreyfus Group is responsible for the interiors. Tocci Building Companies is managing construction. Completion can probably be expected by the end of the year.
The dilapidated, two-story venue building at 2 Chapel Avenue, in the Port Liberté community of southern Jersey City, is expected to renovated and expanded into a four-story, 40,000-square-foot structure. The previous venue was called The Pointe, but Landmark Developers will rebrand the project as the North River House, Jersey Digs reported. The redeveloped building will include a lobby, a lounge, a restaurant, and two banquet halls. In addition, there will be multiple bars throughout, landscaped gardens, patios attached to the restaurant, and cabanas. Work is expected to start soon and completion is scheduled for 2018.
Last week, the Jersey City Planning Board approved plans for a five-story, 308-unit mixed-use project at 100 Monitor Street, located on the corner of Johnson Avenue in the city’s Communipaw section. The building will include 2,980 square feet of ground-floor retail space and 8,000 square feet of office space, the latter of which will be leased to the Jersey City Redevelopment Agency, Jersey Digs reported. The residential units will be rentals and amenities will include an 85-car parking garage, a fitness center, a pool, and a landscaped garden. Ironstate Development and Landmark Developers are developing the building. The site is an assemblage of six vacant lots and groundbreaking is scheduled for early 2017.
Back in January, YIMBY reported on the groundbreaking ceremony held for the planned 79-story, 781-unit mixed-use tower under development at 99 Hudson Street, in Jersey City. That’s located between Grand and York streets in Exchange Place section of the city. Pile driving and foundation work are now underway, as seen in photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The 1.5-million-square-foot skyscraper, to stand 900 feet in height, will include 15,000 square feet of retail space and 14,000 square feet of public space, some of that in the form of a plaza. The plaza will be located on the corner of Grand and Greene streets. China Overseas America Inc. is the developer and Perkins Eastman is behind the design. Completion is expected in 2018, followed by occupancy the next year.
