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.
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.
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.
The superstructure of 185 Broadway is now several floors above ground in the Financial District. Designed by FXCollaborative and developed by SL Green, the 260,000-square-foot development will top out at 31 stories and bring more than 200 rental apartments and flagship retail space to Lower Manhattan.
Construction has topped out on 700 Washington Boulevard, aka the Beach, a 24-story residential building in Newport, Jersey City. Formerly called The Wave, the project is designed by HLW International Architecture and Engineering and developed by LeFrak Organization. The building is located along the Hudson River waterfront just off 18th Street, bordering the northern end of Newport Green Park. A shorter 12-story sibling also stands topped out.
