When the new year begins, so could construction on a new development that has been approved for Jersey City’s McGinley Square neighborhood

The property at 75-81 Jordan Avenue, between Mercer and Vroom streets, has long been a multipurpose property, with a three-family residential building and parking area in the rear and a decades-old automotive garage in the front. However, those days will soon be over as demolition gets underway in order to make room for an upcoming six-story building with 35 residential units. Fifteen parking spaces will also be included, along with a rooftop deck with views of the region.

Lower Manhattan-based Titanium Realty Group is developing the new structure in collaboration with WDesignè of Manhattan, River Drive Companies of Wyckoff, and Eli Martin from LWDMR Architects of Downtown Jersey City.

According to Diego Hodara, the founder and CEO of Titanium Realty Group, all of the studios, one-bedrooms, and two-bedrooms in the building will be market-rate rentals. He told Jersey Digs that because services from the existing buildings have now been disconnected, construction will begin once demolition is complete and the necessary building permits are obtained. The development is expected to be completed 18 months after construction begins this winter, he said.

The project was granted the necessary approvals along with multiple variances by the Jersey City Zoning Board of Adjustment back in May 2016. It is also receiving a five-year municipal tax exemption, though the agreement’s terms require a $52,500 contribution to the Jersey City Affordable Housing Trust Fund and other yearly payments.

Residents will be situated within a half-mile radius of the Journal Square Transportation Center, Saint Peter’s University, and two major business districts.

  1. The property at 75 Jordan Ave was demolished months ago to make way for a supposed condo building. Since then, not an ounce of construction has taken place. BUT, the property has been used as a storage facility for heavy equipment (backhoes) and building materials and fill. Apparently this company has another construction site nearby in Journal Square and they keep a good amount of equipment stored in this empty lot. The contractors (Roman out of Newark) are consistently abusing the residents of my street with disregard for all ordinances and laws pertaining to construction sites. Incessant double parking, diesel engines idling for 30+ minutes, air brake releases all morning, late night (10PM-12AM) deliveries to site, strobe lights on delivery vehicles and coffee meetings around the double parked vehicles. Sometimes there are 15+employees gathered on the street awaiting the supposed “supervisor.” Most of this typically goes on between the hours of 5-7AM. Residents are losing their patience with this Roman outfit and there will soon be many instances of confrontation, as they act like they own the street..this must come to an end for the sanity of the residents of Jordan Ave.

  2. Hey first of all @ Jeff Czerkies there is a group of plumbers that come in at 6 no one on the job site it there at 5am and none of the equipment runs on Diesel the reason why we are double parked is cause there is no parking the building is silent until 7:15 on the dot because that’s the time we can use power tools and what not. What’s the problem with our coffee breaks we can’t have our morning coffee like everyone else?

  3. Hey Angel, look when I wrote that post…. 2018. Way before y’all even started on the construction. Turns out that PSEG were keeping equipment there for a bit. I have no complaints about anybody that is currently building this place… all good my man!
