Curvaceous Condo Project Planned for 280 Newark Ave

C+C Architecture shared some renderings of a new project they’re working on at 280 Newark Ave – a boutique condo building in The Village.

The design of the project is rather unique with the exterior surface of the building taking on a flowing, curvilinear appearance. Clad in metal panels that accentuate the flowing of the surface, the building appears to fade from black to white as it rises to the sky.

Each full-floor unit is entered directly via the elevator. Once inside the large 1,200 square foot units, you’ll notice high-end fixtures and modern design – including polished concrete floors, modern kitchens, and LED lighting. Floor to ceiling windows provide much natural light. Units also feature private outdoor terraces. The penthouse unit will get a private roof deck with Manhattan and Jersey City views.

On the ground floor of the building, a retail space encased in glass on two sides provides high visibility for its future tenant. The exposure and location on this prominent corner make it the perfect space for a broker, coffee shop or boutique.

Frederick Cooke of C+C described his inspiration for the building, “This important corner building will be held by a turret like form that harkens back to victorian urban corner buildings, a vernacular well known in Jersey City. ”

280 Newark is being developed by Point Capital Development, who are also behind The Baker Building and Mill Rocks at 361 Newark. Zoning has already approved the project. They plan to file permits in the next few months.

  1. I don’t see how that building fits into the JC style. Maybe some people like this style but looks hideous to me.

  2. This really sucks. I am so fucking sick and tired of this shit.

    THIS IS NOT JERSEY CITY. This is some fucking jack asses coming into my community and building shit that people in this community cannot afford.

    This area of Newark Ave has already been ripped up to replace the sewer lines three times in the lat 10 years, not again. WTF, and the developers DO NOT have to pay for it, the current property owners in the community have to cover this bill. Bullshit.

    Fuck this development company. They are not from here, and they do not belong here. Go develop your own fucking community.

    I cannot wait to vote against Fulop and every son-of-a-bitch on the City Council who supports this shit.

  3. I agree with Mr. Buontempo I have lived in downtown Jersey City since 1967 and I can’t believe how greedy people are, I sometimes look out my window to see if these MF’s are not making a huge building in my back yard. The prior administration gave away buildings for peanuts 🥜 like 8 Erie street, the museum on Montgomery and Monmouth St., they gave that away for $900.000 thousand and the prior administration had payed $5,000000 million dollars to renovate this building. I’m more then sure that somebody got payed. This new administration is allowing construction 🔨 companies to make buildings anywhere in the downtown area, with no parking. My question is when is it going to be enough, when are these politicians start caring for the citizens of Jersey City.
