5 Upcoming Residential Developments in Jersey City

Across the Hudson River is the rise of Jersey City and its vertically growing skyline. The wave of new buildings signal the booming housing market that's bringing in a surge of new apartments in Jersey City, much of which are concentrated either along the Hudson River waterfront or more inland around the Journal Square PATH station. Below we list five projects ranging from modest developments to massive residential skyscrapers that will leave a mark on the skyline in the years to come. 

1) 400-420 Marin Boulevard

The tallest new development that will soon rise and become another monumental symbol of the booming real estate in Jersey City area is 400-420 Marin Boulevard, which will top out as a 60-story 634-foot tall skyscraper designed by Beyer Blinder Belle and developed by G&S investors. The mixed-use project is going to yield 80 studios, 399 one-bedrooms, 295 two-bedrooms, and 38 three-bedrooms. It is not clear if any of the apartments will be priced as affordable housing units. There will also be an 85,000-square-foot ShopRite supermarket, a 508-vehicle parking garage, 430 bicycle docks, and 802 apartments. Additional retail tenants will occupy first floor suites, ShopRite will take up the second floor, and the parking garage will occupy a total of three floors.

Amenity spaces will include a swimming pool, a landscaped rooftop garden above the six-floor podium, a fitness center, a children’s room, resident lounges, and a flexible event space.

Excavation and foundations should get underway soon, as the site has been cleared. A completion date has yet to be announced to the public. 

2) 262 Johnston Avenue

Located along the southern end of Jersey City is 262 Johnston Avenue, a topped out 25-story, 290-foot tall residential building that is currently under construction. Designed by Marchetto Higgins Stieve Architects and GRT Architecture and developed by Alpine Residential and Fields Grade, the ground-up reinforced concrete superstructure is going to have 169 rental units with spectacular skyline views of Jersey City and Lower Manhattan, and also face the New York harbor with 360-degree views around the tower. Also part of the project is going to be a host of residential amenities, a small parking lot, and around 9,000 square feet of retail space on the first and second floors. 

Amenity spaces will include a fitness center with CrossFit equipment, a package room, an indoor resident lounge, communal kitchen, coworking spaces, and a gaming room. On the 24th floor, there will also be an outdoor roof deck with a plunge pool, grilling stations, and dining areas.

The building is expected to debut in early 2024.

3) 50 & 55 Hudson Boulevard 

Last year, the Jersey City Planning Board approved a pair of residential towers along the waterfront edge of Jersey City at 50 and 55 Hudson Boulevards. They are being developed by Goldman Sachs, which has partnered with Tishman Speyer to complete the project. The complex will comprise 1,941 residential units, which would be set atop a large retail podium component, an amenity deck, and public plazas Colgate formerly operated a plant on the site for more than 100 years, which closed in the 1980s. To this day, the development site are the two last undeveloped parcels of real estate in Jersey City's waterfront. Additional members of the project team include Handel Architects, Marchetto Higgins Stieve Architects, and landscape architect Melillo Bauer Carman. 

50 Hudson Street will top out at 42 stories with the lower levels housing more than 12,000 square feet of retail and 467 parking spaces with 924 residences above. 55 Hudson Street will top out at 58 stories and comprise the same configuration of use-type with 62,000 square feet of retail, 378 parking spaces, and 1,017 units. All of the units will range from studios up to three-bedroom floor plans. The development is expected to provide some of the best waterfront apartments in Jersey City with prime skyline perspectives of New York City from the World Trade Center to Billionaire's Row. 

Future amenities include an outdoor pool, tennis courts, a dog run, and landscaped terraces with barbecue grills and lounge space. Additional amenities include resident lounges, a fitness center, bike storage, and more to be announced.

A start and completion date have yet to be heard of. 

4) 618 Pavonia Avenue 

Located next to the Journal Square PATH station is 618 Pavonia Avenue,  a topped out and nearly finished 27-story mixed-use tower in Jersey City's seven-building, 2.1-million-square-foot Homestead Place master plan.

The other associated addresses are 87 Newkirk Street, which is now complete and fully occupied, 26 Cottage Street and 26-32 Van Reipen Avenue, and 626 Newark Avenue.
