6 Residential Developments, Completed & Underway Apartments In Jersey City, New Jersey

Just across the Hudson River from New York City is Jersey City, New Jersey, which has experienced a rapid boom in construction over the past decade. Its waterfront skyline, once littered with derelict warehouse buildings and abandoned rail yards from its former industrial past, is now home to some of the state's tallest office and luxury residential skyscrapers that want to get a front row seat to the Manhattan skyline. This is all thanks to a surge in demand mostly driven by new residential homes and the desire to have convenient access to New York, primarily around several PATH train stations between Newark and Exchange Place. Further inland is Journal Square, which for nearly all of its history never had skyscrapers until recently. Several tall buildings are already completed with more in the pipeline that will give it a skyline of its own. Below are just a few projects that are either finished or currently underway.  

1) Journal Squared (Tower 3)

One of the tallest new skyscrapers currently being built in Jersey City is taking shape at the three-tower Journal Squared complex in the Journal Square neighborhood. Designed by HWKN Architects and Handel Architects for Kushner Real Estate Group, the tower is addressed as 595 Pavonia Avenue and will eventually stand as the second tallest in the complex at  575 feet tall and 60 floors high with a total of 600 rental apartments. The project is located by the three-way intersection of Summit, Pavonia, and Central Avenues and is a short walk to the adjacent Journal Square PATH station. 

Journal Squared as a whole will boast a total of 1,840 residences and 36,000 square feet of dining and retail area. Tower 3 will have 18,000 square feet of residential amenities including a performance lounge, a karaoke room, recording spaces, a “makerspace” area, a coworking lounge, a lobby café, and a sky lounge. Residents of the first two buildings currently share 100,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities.

Journal Squared Tower 3 is anticipated to be finished in the spring of 2024.

2) One Journal Squared 

Nearby our first contender is One Journal Square, a two tower residential and retail complex addressed as 10 Journal Square. Designed by Woods Bagot and also developed by Kushner Real Estate Group, the project will bring 1,723 units split amongst the two 64-story, 710-foot tall skyscrapers. The podium will span 40,000 square feet and include retail space and an enclosed public parking garage. The site is located directly next to the Journal Square PATH Station and bound by Sip Avenue to the south and Bergen Avenue to the west.

Future residential amenities are slated to span 45,000 square feet and feature an Olympic-sized indoor swimming pool, a cold plunge pool, a whirlpool spa, a sauna, steam rooms, a bowling alley, a golf simulator, multiple lounges, a coworking space, a chef’s kitchen, and a kid’s club. Additional health and wellness amenities include separate yoga and training rooms, a spin cycle suite, a full-size indoor basketball court, a rock climbing wall, and a squash court. There will also be two landscaped rooftop terraces and an outdoor swimming pool with a hot tub.

One Journal Square is expected to be completed in 2026.

3) Haus25

Haus25 is one of the newest residential properties to have been completed and opened in the downtown Jersey City area. The 57-story skyscraper is located at 25 Christopher Columbus Drive and is designed by Elkus Manfredi Architects, while Veris Residential is the developer of the 626-foot tall skyscraper that yields a total of 750 apartments with interiors designed by Fogarty Finger. There is also an adjacent grade school within the complex that was designed by KSS Architects, as well as a multi-story parking garage and ground-floor retail space. Haus25 is bound by Christopher Columbus Drive to the north, Montgomery Street to the south, Washington Street to the east, and Warren Street to the west.

Residential amenities at Haus 25 include an outdoor swimming pool atop the parking garage, dining and lounge areas, a children’s playground, an open-air space for outdoor fitness equipment, and a spacious green lawn. Leasing has launched for Haus25’s inventory of 244 studios, 249 one-bedrooms, 224 two-bedrooms, and 33 three-bedrooms. Thirty-seven of the homes are designated as affordable housing.

The PATH train is accessible to the west at the Grove Street station, and various dining options and an upcoming Whole Foods Market are located in the surrounding area. The Jersey City waterfront can be accessed by walking directly east along Christopher Columbus Drive.

4) 351 Marin Boulevard 

Rising 38 stories tall, 351 Marin Boulevard offers 507 rental units ranging from studiods to two-bedroom units. Designed by Hollwich Kushner and HLW Architects and developed in collaboration by Kushner Real Estate Group and Northwestern Mutual, the property is one of several construction projects that line Marin Boulevard, which itself is transforming into a residential corridor of new construction around the Grove Street PATH station. As of February, the developers reported more than 80 percent of inventory leased at 351 Marin Boulevard

Each apartment features wide-plank hardwood flooring, in-unit washer and dryer, solar shades, steel appliances, and white quartz countertops.

5) Provost Square 

Another Jersey City project on the rise of the third phase of Provost Square, located at 151 Bay Street in the Powerhouse Arts District.

Twelve units will be designated as live-work units, with one for an artist in residence. The site is located at the corner of Provost Street and Bay Street.

As a whole, Provost Square is planned to yield 950 residential units, over 40,000 square feet of retail space, a 26,000-square-foot pedestrian plaza, and 17,706 square feet of multipurpose art space. There will also be a new 26,352-square-foot, 550-seat performing arts center in the existing lobby of the A&P Annex Building. It was last announced that a fourth and final phase at 352 Marin Boulevard will follow and consist of a five-story building with 32 workforce housing units, 2,600 square feet of ground-floor retail, and a rooftop space.

151 Bay Street’s completion date is targeted for February 2024.
