Continuing the discussion from JERSEY CITY | The Waterfront Redevelopment:


Two high-rise residential projects in Jersey City set to absorb New York City overflow around transit hubs.

Down the tracks toward Manhattan, developers Mack-Cali Realty Corporation and Ironstate Development just broke ground on the first of three more towers grouped around the Exchange Place PATH Station. Concrete designed the three towers as a series of stacked glass boxes rising from parking podia covered in pixelated metal and wood screens. Occupiable landscaped roofs linked by pedestrian bridges connect the overall site. Standing 713 feet tall with 69 floors, the new tower, called URL Harborside, or Urban-Ready Living Harborside, takes the state’s second tallest title behind Cesar Pelli’s 42-story, 781-foot-tall 30 Hudson Street.

“We believe there is strong demand for a live-work-play environment that offers a true sense of community—all in an amenity-rich, transit-oriented location,” said Mitchell Hersh, Mack-Cali president and CEO, in a statement. Each of the planned 763 residences is designed to be energy-efficient with innovative layouts and communal amenities that appeal to flexible, urban lifestyles. When complete, the entire project will contain more than 2,300 units and retail space. The first phase of URL Harborside is expected to be complete in 2016.

Found this rendering on the Mack-Cali site:


Good indication of how it will look from the Hudson. Already, its so prominent when viewed from the Path station (wtc).




Great photo!



Can you imagine the 6th Borough when the planned 900’ and 1,000’ towers are added to this great skyline?

Only in NY, lads!!!




Nice photo, Chris!

When do the next 2 towers begin construction?



JC’s skyline is better than most US cities’s


I think after they sell out most of the first tower. I remember reading something that phase II and III will start once sales finish.
