The evolving West Side of Jersey City is on pace to welcome a slew of residents to a new complex later this year as a prominent project from a New York developer has topped out.
Halpern Real Estate Ventures recently announced that their 49 Fisk Street endeavor has hit the milestone. Plans to revitalize the 2.54-acre first emerged in November 2020, with an expanded version gaining approval during the summer of 2021.
The development, which has a buildout being managed by JRM Construction Management, is on track for an end-of-year leasing launch for its 337 luxury rental residences. Halpern has tapped The Corcoran Group as the exclusive marketing and leasing agent for the complex.
“We’re thrilled to mark the building’s construction progress, which is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our entire team who are helping to bring this exciting project to life,” said Joel Halpern, President and Managing Director of Investments for Halpern. “49 Fisk Street will further elevate the residential options available to existing and new residents of Jersey City’s West Side, where significant investment and municipal focus is stimulating the rise of a new destination center.”
The six-story development will top out at 71 feet and include units that skew smaller, with 129 studios, 151 one-bedrooms, and 57 two-bedroom units scattered throughout the project. Designed by Minno & Wasko Architects and Planners, 49 Fisk Street will include 143 automated parking spaces in a ground-floor and basement garage facility.
49 Fisk Street will sport interiors curated by The Meshberg Group that incorporate design elements and innovative technologies that consider both the environment and the people that live there. Sustainable features will include a waste diversion and energy recovery system, rooftop solar panels, electric vehicle chargers, and rainwater collection for irrigation uses.
Amenities for future residents of the complex will include a 14,000+ square-foot landscaped courtyard with green space, an 18,000 square-foot rooftop with a 360-degree view, and a community garden.
The building will also feature private and public co-working spaces for residents who might work from home plus a hotel-like lobby, a speakeasy-style bar, and a state-of-the-art fitness center.
