Yesterday, Advance Realty and DeBartolo Development, along with Harrison city officials, celebrated the groundbreaking of a new 286-unit building in Harrison. The project, currently referred to as Block F, is the next phase of the Riverbend District – a revitalization plan that will bring restaurants, bars, entertainment, and culture to the 35-acre neighborhood.
Once complete, the Riverbend District will be home to approximately 3,000 apartments as well as 100,000 square feet of premium retail space. The location is adjacent to the Red Bull Arena, just across the Passaic River from Newark, and an 18-minute ride on the PATH train to NYC.
After the groundbreaking, a ribbon-cutting was also held to celebrate the opening of Steel Works, another rental community in the same area.
“Both the construction of this new building and opening of Steel Works represent critical milestones in the town of Harrison’s ongoing revitalization,” said Harrison Mayor James A. Fife. “We are thrilled to add these state-of-the-art apartments and amenities to our already vibrant community, and look forward to the new energy and resources the rapidly developing Riverbend District will bring.”
