Developers recently celebrated the commencement of construction at 36 Jones Street in central Jersey City. Located just south of the Journal Square’s major transportation plaza, the five-story building will eventually contain ten apartments, amenity space, and approximately 900 square feet of ground floor retail.

The residential component includes a mix of one- and three-bedroom units that each feature floor-to-ceiling windows, furnished appliances, and private balconies. Indoor amenity spaces include a gym, a designated bike storage room, and private storage space in the cellar. Outdoor amenities include a roof deck equipped with lounge areas and a petite vegetable garden.

Studio ST Architects, a New York-based firm, designed the building, which founder Esther Sperber describes as her response to the growing desire for all-inclusive community experiences. The building’s façade is comprised of simple gray-hued masonry, glass elements, and bronzed cementitious overhangs that support the residential balconies.

The property is expected to debut by mid-2020.
