The ribbon-cutting ceremony for the opening of a new phase of apartments and social spaces at Harrison Urby was held on Thursday, March 3, 2022. The ceremony was attended by the Harrison Mayor, James A. Fife, along with the development principals.
Harrison Urby was opened in 2017 and now encompasses 1,060 apartments, which are spread throughout multiple buildings. The latest phase of 381 apartments is located at 200 Angelo Cifelli Drive and consists of alcove studios, one-, two-, and three-bedroom layouts. Amsterdam-based firm Concrete is responsible for designing the Harrison Urby architecture.
“On behalf of council, I am proud to welcome this new building at Harrison Urby to the community,” Mayor Fife said. “Urby, Ironstate Development, Pegasus Group, and Brookfield Properties have been prolific developers in Harrison and a major catalyst for the redevelopment of the waterfront. Their investment has delivered PILOT revenue, brought in new residents, and contributed to the renaissance of our town, which began in the 1990s.”
“We’re excited to expand this transformative residential concept in Harrison at a time when demand for smartly-designed apartments and vibrant social spaces in urban locations near mass transit is on the rise,” said David Barry, Founder and CEO of Urby. “This new building introduces the next level of the Urby experience.”
Since opening in 2016, Urby operates four properties including NYC, Jersey City, Harrison, and Stamford, CT. Future developments are planned for Newark, Dallas, and Washington D.C.
