A church-to-residential conversion project in the heart of Downtown Jersey City officially has its interior designed, which looks to put a modern touch on preserved historic details.

Earlier this year, a new residential project was revealed for a property at 380 Montgomery Street. Formerly home to St. Bridget’s Roman Catholic Church, the building is currently owned by a company named SBJC LLC, and they have plans to covert and expand the property into 38 residential units.

The exterior design, undertaken by Jersey City-based LWDMR Architects, will preserve almost everything on the outside of the building and construct an addition behind the former church set to contain mechanical equipment, an elevator, and a stairwell. The new section will sport terracotta panels to match the color of the church’s masonry plus a dark ironspot brick to match the slate roof.

The newly revealed interiors are designed by Josh Felix of JGoldman Design, a BEAM Studio. A somewhat minimalist black and white hallway design complements preserved stained glass in the lobby, while the kitchens and baths in the units themselves are of a modern aesthetic. Historic arches from the church are found in some units, all of which will be market rate rentals made up of 17 studios, 19 one-bedroom apartments, a two-bedroom unit, and a three-bedroom unit.

A few of the renderings show a gym facility is also planned for the property. A spokesperson for the architect told Jersey Digs that no groundbreaking is scheduled yet for the project, which gained approval from the city’s zoning board on December 12 last year.

  1. I’m sad to see a church go into disuse and be converted to residential. But I’m glad the heart of the building and the community will be preserved.

  2. Space was better used as a community event space. Now it’ll just be unoccupied unaffordable housing instead of benefiting the masses.

  3. Nice design for the addition as far as I can see from the picture. I like it because the windows follow the patterns found in the church building. If there is a mailroom attendant to clean up and sort packages then it will be fine (the mail room). Otherwise, those mailboxes will be stuffed and mail will be on the floor. Mail carriers roll maIl up in rubber bands making it difficult to put in small boxes. Nice
