Construction is nearing the halfway mark at 533 Mercer Street, aka 289 Jordan, in Jersey City. The superstructure has been steadily rising and will eventually top out as one of the tallest buildings to the west of the main downtown district. The 16-story structure is designed by Marchetto Higgins Stieve Architects and developed by Mercer Jordan LLC, an affiliate of New York-based company Sequoia Development Group, GRID Real Estate, and Dresdner Robin. The mixed-use project is expected to contain 300 apartments.
Developer Promont NYC has gained approvals to construct a new eight-story apartment building near Prospect Park in Flatbush, Brooklyn. The structure will rise from an interior lot at 150 Lenox Road and will eventually contain 42 apartments and a small ground-floor community facility. At 688 square feet apiece, the homes will most likely be rentals.
