JERSEY CITY | Marbella II | 137m | 450ft | 38 fl | Prep



---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Marbella II - 401 Washington Blvd. Jersey City

38 stories, 311 apartments
Mack-Cali Realty and Roseland break ground on luxury rental building




Quote:
City and corporate officials gathered in the chilly December air on Dec. 4 at 401 Washington Blvd. to start construction of a new 38-story luxury rental tower. The building will rise on the Marbella development site, connecting to the existing Marbella rental tower by way of a shared garage. The tower will include 311 apartments, including studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom sizes.

“We want to continue to see Jersey City grow into a premier mid-size city in the country,” said Mayor Steven Fulop. “That means culture, arts, school and investment. This building will be the largest in the state on the residential side and will once again remake our skyline.”

Citing a significant amount of development activity in Jersey City, Fulop said there needs to be the right balance of development in arts, residences, and businesses that will allow the city to grow to its full potential.

The project received a 10-year tax abatement earlier this year, under which the developer would pay about $1.1 million in lieu of taxes as well as contribute $1 million for affordable housing construction or renovation. The new building is also expected to generate more than 400 construction jobs and 18 permanent jobs when complete.

The building is expected to house about 600 new residents.
The new 38-story building will connect with the existing residential building on the property, which opened in 2004 and was the tallest residential building in New Jersey at the time. Marbella and M2 will share a 16,000-square-foot landscaped roof deck, with pool, which will connect the two buildings.

It looks decent, but not very luxurious.

Marbella II Breaks Ground on Washington Blvd in Downtown Jersey City

Quote:
11/06/13

Ten years after Marbella was completed at 425 Washington Blvd in downtown Jersey City, construction on Marbella II has broken ground. The ringing of structural pilings will grace the Newport/ Powerhouse neighborhoods this Fall 2013 as construction for Roseland Property‘s Marbella II moves forward.

Marbella II will claim 401 Washington Blvd and the seal of an approved U.S. Green Council Building according to records. While no renderings seem to be public at this time, a uniform facade to its sister tower is to be expected. With ten years gone by since completion of 425 Washington Blvd, the design and facade of the new tower was anticipated to be different and more modern. The original took two years to build and cost approximately $73 million according to emporis.com.
