Revealed: 33 Park Avenue, Two 44-Story Towers Coming To Jersey City

BY: NIKOLAI FEDAK 7:00 AM ON FEBRUARY 19, 2015

Back in early September, NJ Biz reported on two new towers coming to the Jersey City waterfront, after “LHN Owner Urban Renewal LLC” sought approval for a ten-year tax abatement. YIMBY now has the reveal for the site, which is actually being developed by the Fisher Organization, and it will rise between Marin Boulevard and Saint Peter’s Street.

High-rise architecture in Jersey City tends to be dominated by simple design and no-frills massing, and the current plan for 33 Park Avenue certainly seems to be par for the course. Two towers will share a five-story podium that will have parking, retail, and additional apartments. Above, the buildings will top-out 44 floors above street level, and a tipster sent along word that Perkins Eastman will be designing.

So long as it's well integrated, it doesn't hurt that much. But this project is right next to the light rail, so it shouldn't need so much.

From today
Any idea why they went with the tower away from Marin Boulevard first? (rather than the one on it)
