Construction has topped out on the 43-story, 376-unit mixed-use tower, dubbed Ellipse, at 1-25 14th Street, located in the Newport section of Jersey City, N.J. The structure, which is now receiving glass installation on its 27th floor, can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The 592,800-square-foot tower’s apartments will be rentals, ranging from studios to three-bedrooms. There will be 24,000 square feet of amenities, as well as a retail component near street level. The LeFrak Organization is the developer. Arquitectonica is the design architect and Haines, Lundberg & Waehler (HLW) is the executive architect. Completion is expected later this year.

The City of New Rochelle, in Westchester County, N.Y., has launched a request for proposals (RFP) for the downtown development site at 45 Harrison Street, located on the corner of Cedar Street. The 30,492-square-foot city-owned site could accommodate a building up to 28 stories in height, the Daily Voice reported. A project could include a mix of uses, including residential apartments, commercial space, such as office or retail space, hotels, and/or medical or civic facilities. An existing two-story, 20,000-square-foot fire station currently occupies the property.
Sequoia Development Group and GRID Real Estate are planning a 16-story, 300-unit mixed-use building at 533 Mercer Street, located on the corner of Jordan Avenue in the McGinley Square section of Jersey City. Dubbed 289 Jordan, it would include apartments ranging from studios to three-bedrooms, of which 56 units, or roughly 19 percent, would be designated as affordable. There would also be 4,000 square feet of retail space on the ground floor, Jersey Digs reported. Marchetto Higgins Stieve Architects is responsible for the design. Before the as-of-right project can rise, a collection of single- to three-story mixed-use structures must first be demolished.
Renderings have been revealed of a 17-story, 308-unit mixed-use building at 30 Evergreen Place, located on the corner of Freeway Drive East in East Orange, in Essex County, N.J. The project, dubbed The Station at Brick Church, will also contain retail space, a public plaza, and a parking garage, according to the Urban Essex Coalition for Smart Growth. TD+Partners and J.G. Petrucci Company Inc. are the developers, Jersey Digs reported, while Clarke Caton Hintz is serving as the design architect. Phase one of the project, presumably the residential tower, is slated to be complete in 2018. The 2.5-acre plot is currently vacant. The site’s predecessors, two office buildings, were demolished some time before 2009.
