Renderings have been revealed for the upcoming high-rise at 26 Cottage Street in Jersey City’s Journal Square. Located mid-block between Summit Avenue and John F. Kennedy Boulevard, the new development will rise 223 feet high in a low-scale residential neighborhood within walking distance to the Path train. The 20-story 26 Cottage Street is one of three towers in development by the Namdar Group, a Long Island-based developer. The other two are 35 Cottage Street across the street and 26-28 Van Reipen Avenue on the next block to the south. C3D Architecture is responsible for the design.
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.
Permits have been filed for an 11-story mixed-use building at 3095 Webster Avenue in Norwood, The Bronx. Located between East 203rd Street and East 204th Street, the interior lot is a short walk to the 205th Street subway station, serviced by the D train. Non-profit Geel Community Services under the Geel Webster Avenue Housing Development Fund is listed as the owner behind the applications.
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.
