A multi-building mixed-use project is in the early development stages at 246 Johnston Avenue, in the Liberty Harbor section of downtown Jersey City. The mega-project, dubbed Crescent Park and proposed by Quadrum Global, could contain 995 residential units as-of-right, or as much as 2,265 if the 7.5-acre property is rezoned. There would also be 50,000 square feet of retail space and 860 parking spaces, Jersey Digs reported.
Piling work has begun for the six-story, 45-unit mixed-use building under development at 380 Newark Avenue, located on the corner of 6th Street in The Village section of downtown Jersey City. Progress on construction can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums.
A rendering has been revealed of a two-towered project planned at 177 Grand Street, located in the Paulus Hook section of downtown Jersey City. Plans presented to the Historic Paulus Hook Association last week call for a 22-story building along Grand Street and a 16-story building along Sussex Street.

TriBeCa-based Opis Partners is planning to develop a seven-story, 20-unit residential building at 325 Pine Street, in the Bergen-Lafayette section of Jersey City. The project will feature rental apartments, ranging from one- to three-bedrooms, Jersey Digs reported. The Jersey City Redevelopment Agency (JCRA) selected Opis as the developer last August. In October, the city’s Planning Board approved the project, which required a height variance. The development site, spanning 323-325 Pine Street, consists of two three-story, multi-family townhouses. A construction timeline has not been revealed, although the first step would be to demolish the existing structures.

The project, dubbed The Studebaker Lofts, includes expanding the structure vertically by a single floor, Jersey Digs reported. The final product will feature 14 residential units and 2,350 square feet of ground-floor retail space. The city’s Zoning Board of Adjustment approved the plans in April 2015. A construction timeline has not been released.
