What does an office on the cutting edge look like? Mack-Cali Realty Corporation and SJP Properties have presented their vision for the next-generation Harborside Tower, a project Jersey Digs first reported on this past summer.

This first peek at architect FXFOWLE’s renderings for the 40-story Class A office building reveal state-of-the-art details that aim to make its 1.2 million sq. ft. the most coveted commercial real estate in downtown Jersey City. Riding high on the current trend of densification – a ruefully Dilbertesque euphemism for shrinking, more tightly packed corporate offices – this “intelligent building” is designed with open spaces that foster collaboration, and is equipped to get its tenants down to work.

The infrastructure is built around super-fast Internet service with unlimited bandwidth, which offers plug-and-play capability through a distributed antenna system (DAS). That network also powers a web-based service request system that ensures quick and seamless resolution. The Internet of Things permeates the building, with a digital management system monitoring and controlling all building systems to maximize operating efficiency and minimize energy consumption. Thus, Harborside Tower has achieved LEED Gold certification.

An elegant two-story glass lobby that greets all who enter, and on the way in, pass an exterior LED. In the lobby, you’ll find a concierge and security personnel along with a fully staffed mail and messenger center.

The most dramatic feature of all is a roof garden and lounge providing unobstructed views of Manhattan, available for tenant use along with a conference center on the mezzanine level. Whichever level you’re heading to, the destination dispatch elevators can get you there 25% faster.

Finally, anchoring Harborside Tower on the lobby level will be two retail units totaling 37,000 sq. ft.

As if high-tech goodies and Manhattan views weren’t temptations enough, companies that move into Harborside Tower will be eligible for economic incentives that include New Jersey’s “Grow NJ” assistance program.

  1. I’m thankful for a 1.2 million sqft office building on the waterfront, and the new workers that will come with it which will contribute to the vibrancy of Jersey City. I wish something more could be done on this site. Mack Cali also does residential construction and it would be even more beneficial for the community if this was a high density mixed-use building, given that it’s so close to HBLR and the PATH. Think big.
