Façade work is progressing on The Charlotte, a 57-story mixed-use skyscraper at 25 Christopher Columbus Drive in Jersey City. Designed by Elkus Manfredi Architects for Mack-Cali’s Roseland Residential Trust, the 626-foot-tall reinforced concrete superstructure topped out back in early September, and its glass and metal curtain wall has since risen more than halfway to the parapet. The property will yield 750 units with interior design by Fogarty Finger. Melillo + Bauer Associates is the landscape architect, DeSimone Consulting Engineers is the structural engineer, AMA Consulting Engineers is the mechanical engineer, and KSS Architects is the designer of the school that will be located in the podium.
Excavation is set to begin at 144 First Street in Jersey City‘s Powerhouse Arts District, the site of a 12-story mixed-use building. Designed by Fogarty Finger Architecture and developed by EPIRE, the project will yield over 111,000 square feet with 84 apartments ranging from studios to three-bedroom units.
