JERSEY CITY | 711 Montgomery St | FT | 16 FLOORS


Continuing the discussion from JERSEY CITY | Journal Square 2060 Redevelopment Plan:

Should neighboring properties benefit?

City Planner Robert Cotter said that the owner of a property currently used for a parking lot had proposed to construct only a five-story building. But City Council President Rolando Lavaro said he believes the owner is looking to sell the property to a third party. Lavaro said the sale would be conditioned on a change of zoning that would permit a 16-story building.


“This latest development will be constructed in the McGinley Square neighborhood at 711 Montgomery Street, at the southwest corner of Jordan Avenue. The tract currently contains a private parking lot. When completed, according to GRID Real Estate, the upper levels of the project will consist of 272 residential rental units, including 103 studios, 137 one-bedrooms, 26 two-bedrooms, and six 3-bedrooms. Meanwhile, the ground floor is set to include around 5,000 square feet of retail space.”
