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.
Exterior work is nearing completion on 167 Chrystie Street, a 16-story residential building on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Designed by ODA Architects, the 77,000-square-foot, 170-foot-tall structure will yield 78 units, averaging 680 square feet apiece, as well as 4,600 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Permits were filed by the Arava Group in August 2018 and Be-Aviv and Nexus Building Development Group, Inc. are developing the project, which is located between Rivington Street to the north and Delancey Street to the south. Sara D. Roosevelt Park lies across Chrystie Street to the east.
Construction has topped out on 540 Waverly Avenue, a nine-story mixed-use building in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. Designed by Kutnicki Bernstein Architects and developed by The Daten Group, the 117,000-square-foot structure will yield 135 rental apartments spread across 91,000 square feet, including 40 units reserved for affordable housing, as well 6,000 square feet of ground-floor retail and a 56-vehicle parking garage. The property is located at the corner of Atlantic and Waverly Avenues.
