Harrison North of Guyon in New Jersey is the latest project to surface as part of the Harrison Waterfront Redevelopment Plan. As revealed by Jersey Digs, the mixed-use, 20-story tower will bring office and retail components to the suburban neighborhood. Located North of the Harrison PATH station, the tower will become the town’s tallest building and include 242,276 square feet of office space, 15,027 square feet of retail, and an unspecified hotel.

GRO Architects designed the mixed-use tower which is expected to begin construction in 2019. The project will be completed in two phases.

Other components of the development will include a new Harrison PATH entrance, a public plaza, parking structures designed to accommodate 2,200 vehicles, a residential development offering 518 units, and over 85,000 square feet of retail. Recreational areas could include a movie theater, multiple restaurants, and a bowling alley.

Future development will include additional commercial and residential projects, hotels, outdoor public areas, community facilities, additional parking structures, and increased capital investments to the New Jersey PATH station and road network. In total, the redevelopment area spans approximately 250 acres and amounts to about 32 percent of the town’s area.

According to an official statement from the Harrison Waterfront Redevelopment plan, “the mixed-use areas are encouraged to be neo-traditional downtown styling, that is, buildings three or more stories with little or no front setback.

They go on to say, “residential uses are envisioned to be market rate predominantly studio and one-bedroom apartments for those who desire easy access to the PATH station and other regional assets. The remaining ground floor areas in the District are encouraged to include non-residential uses and shall be designed to accommodate such uses in the future.”

  1. Please pardon me for using your space: Beautiful because of its design and you know. (Thank you)

  2. They need to put some liner units on that parking garage so the plaza and PATH station entrance isn’t burdened with an inactive and hideous exposed parking structure looming over it.
