Construction is complete on VYV South, a 432-unit residential building at 444 Warren Street in Jersey City. Designed by Perkins Eastman and developed by Brookfield Properties and G&S Investors, the structure is the second building to rise in the 18-acre Hudson Exchange West development following the completion of its sibling VYV at 474 Warren Street. Both edifices feature a curtain wall of dark gray brick and glass panels, and culminate in relatively flat parapets. The entire development will consist of 12 new towers with 5,400 units and 350,000 square feet of amenity, retail, and dining spaces.
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.
Activity has yet to begin at 444 Washington Boulevard in Jersey City, the site of a 722-foot-tall skyscraper from Gerner Kronick + Valcarcel Architects and Tower Cove Jersey City Urban Renewal. In addition to the 70-story tower, which will contain 950 residential units, there will be a second 575-foot-tall structure, as well as a neighboring six-story building containing 17,192 square feet of retail space and a 382-vehicle parking garage.
Equipment has arrived at the Jersey City site of Harborside 8, a 708-foot-tall residential skyscraper on the Hudson River waterfront. Designed by Elkus Manfredi Architects and developed by Mack Cali, the 68-story tower will be among the tallest structures in the city and the state of New Jersey upon topping out.
Curtain wall installation is closing in on the 754-foot-tall pinnacle of 537 Summit Avenue, the second and tallest skyscraper in the three-tower Journal Squared complex in Jersey City. Designed by HWKN/Hollwich Kushner and Handel Architects and developed by Kushner Real Estate Group, the buildings stand out dramatically from their isolated position west of downtown.
