This week, Smogasburg opened a new 300-seat outdoor venue at the Harborside commercial campus in Jersey City, joining Smorgasbar, which opened earlier this summer. The company’s premier outdoor destination in New Jersey now offers local craft beers, barbecue tacos, lobster rolls, and brick oven pizza. The debut is the latest in a flurry of announcements from developer Mack-Cali, which is quickly transforming the Harborside campus into a mixed-use destination for local residents and Manhattanites just a quick train or ferry ride away.
The exterior recladding of Harborside 1, Harborside 2, and Harborside 3, is almost finished and has made significant installation progress since YIMBY last covered the complex back in the early fall. The Harborside buildings sit along the Jersey City waterfront as a contiguous trio of low-rise structures ranging from eight to 12 floors high. The 21st-century upgrade is designed Elkus Manfredi Architects and is being developed in a collaboration between Mack-Cali Realty Corporation and SJP Properties. The three buildings sit on a long rectangular parcel bound by Harborside Place to the north, Hudson Street to the west, and Christopher Columbus Drive to the south. Plaza Construction is in charge of the construction, which is expected to cost $75 million.
The first annual Jersey City Mural Festival arrives this weekend at the new Harborside Campus near the city’s Hudson River waterfront. The weekend-long festival will take place June 5-6 and will activate more than 30 walls across Jersey City.
SJP Properties recently completed a redevelopment and renovation of 200 Wood Avenue South, a low-rise office building within Iselin, New Jersey’s Metropark commercial campus. The building comprises 270,000 square feet and now offers a modernized lobby, a fitness center, collaborative common areas including landscaped outdoor meeting space, indoor dining area, and on-site parking.
Mack-Cali Realty Corporation has revealed new renderings and forthcoming components of its ongoing transformation of the Harborside commercial campus in Jersey City. The development is located on the shores of Hudson River and includes Harborside buildings 1, 2, and 3, a trio of low-rise office buildings that will be fully renovated for the modern office tenant.
