Last week, YIMBY reported on the topping-out of the 69-story, 763-unit mixed-use tower under construction at 200 Greene Street, in Jersey City’s waterfront district, and now we can share photos of the view from the top of the 713-foot-tall tower. Dubbed URL Harborside, two more towers are planned, which will bring the site’s total number of apartments to 2,358. The first building will open for leasing at the end of 2016, according to developers Mack-Cali Realty Corporation and Ironstate Development Company.
