Mack-Cali Realty Corporation has announced its partnership with SJP Properties to develop Harborside 4, a 1.2-million-square-foot office tower long-proposed at 136 Greene Street, in the Exchange Place district of downtown Jersey City. The development team won’t break ground on the tower until an anchor tenant has signed on, Real Estate NJ reported. The site, bound by Christopher Columbus Drive, and Greene, Pearl, and Hudson streets, is currently a parking lot.
The site at 68-74 Trinity Place has been one of the more notable recent demolitions in the Financial District, with the building coming down over the course of the past year. The site’s owner, Trinity Church, had previously planned a condominium building designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli. While those plans were shelved earlier this year, we now have new renderings of what will replace it.

In February, it was reported that Alloy Development would be building its new headquarters at 341 Nevins Street (a.k.a. 431 Carroll Street), in Gowanus. The firm has recently filed applications for the project, which will measure 9,923 square feet and rise 38 feet above street level. Part of the ground floor will be leased as retail space for a restaurant, while Alloy’s office space will be located on the rest of the ground floor, a mezzanine level associated with the ground floor, and the second floor. The ground floor will also contain two parking spaces. Alloy is designing the project in-house and construction is expected to begin in 2017 for a 2018 completion.
