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.
25 Columbus Drive
Construction has passed the halfway mark on The Charlotte, aka 25 Columbus Drive, a 57-story mixed-use skyscraper in Jersey City. Designed by Handel Architects and developed by Mack-Cali with Fogarty Finger as the interior architect, the building will eventually stand 626 feet tall.
A new rendering with a slightly modified exterior design has been posted on the construction fence of 25 Columbus Drive, along with a new name: The Charlotte. Meanwhile, work on the ground level of the 626-foot-tall Jersey City property is underway. The 57-story skyscraper is designed by Handel Architects and being developed by Mack-Cali, with Fogarty Finger as the interior architect. The structure will contain a total of 750 rental apartments, a 35,000-square-foot privately funded public school for pre-K through first grade, four storefronts covering 16,485 square feet of retail space, and a public plaza.
The reinforced concrete foundation walls for 25 Columbus Drive have reached street level in downtown Jersey City. Additional rebar is sticking out and pointing upward, indicating the location of the columns and walls for the ground-up, 626-foot-high mixed-use project. Handel Architects is designing and Mack Cali is developing the proposed 57-story skyscraper, while Fogarty Finger is the interior architect.
The first stages of excavation at 25 Columbus Drive are apparent as the asphalt from the former parking lot is now being ripped up. This will become the future site of a new mixed-use complex that will rise 626 feet tall and 57 floors high. Handel Architects is designing the proposed structure, while Mack Cali is the developer of the downtown Jersey City project. A total of 750 rental apartments, a 35,000-square-foot privately-funded public school for levels pre-K through first grade, four storefronts covering 16,485 square feet of retail space, and a public plaza will soon be built.
