Hoboken-based Urban Square Properties is moving forward with demolition work to make way for a six-story, 27-unit mixed-use building at 500 Palisades Avenue, located on the corner of Bowers Street in The Heights section of Jersey City. The project will include 2,834 square feet of ground-floor commercial space, as well as a gallery. There will also be a 14-car parking garage, Jersey Digs reported. Lee Levine Architects is behind the design. The project was approved in May by the city’s Zoning Board. Urban Square then purchased the property, previously owned by CLG Properties, for roughly $1.9 million during the summer. A targeted completion date has not been revealed.

Back in November of 2015, the expansion of the former three-story building at 139 Ludlow Street, on the Lower East Side, topped out at five stories, or 71 feet above street level. Bowery Boogie reports that the project is largely complete, now that the windows have been installed, exterior detailing has finished, and the scaffolding has been removed. The 16,500-square-foot commercial building, dubbed Ludlow House, will eventually house two restaurants and a members-only club, featuring event spaces, lounges, and screening rooms. Princeton Holdings is the developer and Lee Levine’s Hoboken, N.J-based Lee Levine Architects is the architect of record. Opening is expected within weeks, according The Lo-Down.
Princeton Holdings’ vertical expansion of a former three-story building at 139 Ludlow Street, on the Lower East Side, has topped-out, according to Bowery Boogie. The building has gained a fourth floor and now measures 16,500 square feet, and new masonry is also currently being installed. The building will be entirely commercial, and features a rooftop terrace. Lee Levine, based in Hoboken, New Jersey, is the architect of record, and completion can probably be expected early next year.
