The $75 million transformation of Harborside by owner and operator Mack-Cali is ongoing in Downtown Jersey City and the latest improvements were just unveiled. Lobbies in Harborside 2 and Harborside 3 reveal the recently completed renovations which include new indoor pedestrian routes and refinished lounge areas.

Mack-Cali partnered with Art House Productions who commissioned original photography to complement the Harborside aesthetic inspired by the complex’s industrial past. Each lobby features a panorama of the Pulaski Skyway by Jersey City-based photographer Joe Velez, hanging eight feet tall and 80 feet wide.

“We were thrilled when Mack-Cali expressed interest in hiring a local Jersey City-based photographer for this project,” said Art House Productions Executive Director Meredith Burns in a prepared statement. “We immediately thought of Joe Velez, a multidisciplinary artist—born and raised in Jersey City—who we knew would see the beauty in this structure and could capture the Pulaski from different locations that a non-local may not be privy to.”

The new lobbies include dark metal finishes meant to recall the railroads and wood planks as a nod to shipping piers. Elevator banks were also updated with glass walls to maximize natural light as well as the views of the Hudson River and Manhattan.
