JERSEY CITY | Jersey Avenue Development (4200+ Units) | 42 Acres


Jersey Avenue Development Plan

The ultimate in urban neighborhood living is being proposed on 42 acres by a consortium of local and national developers in response to the mandate of smart growth and transit-oriented development. The recommended design combines two urban neighborhoods and a mixed-use core, where you can live, work, shop, play and attend school. A district where everyone is within walking distance to a new Hudson/Bergen light rail transit station with connections to the PATH and New York Waterways. Where parks and landscaped plazas are integrated into daily life. This urban design plan is in an approved redevelopment area containing over 4,200 urban homes in new and rehabilitated loft type buildings and over four million square feet of commercial offices space within mixed use buildings. The emphasis is on the character and scale of the streets to insure walkability and community quality of life.

I think this is a stale proposal. Several of the lots in the plan were already developed (or are currently under construction) as “SoHo West/Cast Iron Lofts”


The Van Leer development is technically part of this whole jersey ave development in the soho west neighborhood.

Van leer north site is clear but not much going on.

Van leer south had a lot going on today. Mostly digging.

Here’s an updated map showing how all the proposed developments in the area fit together:


Hamilton House Phase 2 (purple on the map above) is already topped out. I passed by it last week.
