44-Story, 448-Unit Residential Tower Rises To 35th Floor At 33 Park Avenue, Jersey City

In February of 2015, YIMBY revealed renderings of the two-tower, 900-unit residential development at 33 Park Avenue, in eastern Jersey City’s Liberty Harbor section. A few months after our post, Fisher Development broke ground on the first tower of the project, which includes a 44-story, 448-unit building with retail space in its base. Now, photos by Tectonic reveal that the structure is roughly 35 stories above street level and rising. Curtain wall installation has also begun on the four-story base podium. The other tower will also eventually stand 44 stories but will contain 452 residential units. Retail space in both components will total roughly 15,000 square feet. The apartment towers are being designed by Perkins Eastman and completion of the first tower is expected in 2017.

Foundation Work Begins For 15-Story, 255-Unit Mixed-Use Building At 213 Van Vorst Street, Jersey City

Early in 2015, the Jersey City Planning Board approved plans for two 15-story mixed-use buildings at 193 and 213 Van Vorst Street, in the Paulus Hook neighborhood of Jersey City. Now, HFF has secured for the developers, Global Real Assets and Fields Development Group, $63.5 million in financing for the first phase of the project, according to REBusinessOnline. The first phase at 213 Van Vorst Street will have 255 residential units, which will come in one-, two-, and three-bedroom configurations, and two ground-floor retail units totaling 7,237 square feet. The second building will include an additional 153 residential units and 7,305 square feet of ground-floor retail. Pile driving and foundational construction on the first building began last January, per Jersey Digs, and completion is expected in 2017. Marchetto Higgins Stieve is the design architect.
