Recently constructed two-family for sale: 378 5th Street, Downtown Jersey City.

Standing on an unusually large lot in the heart of Downtown Jersey City, 378 5th Street checks off every rare urban amenity. The detached two-family townhouse features an expansive owner’s duplex, a separate two-bedroom unit, outdoor parking for two cars, a private backyard, and a garage — the rarest urban amenity of all.

The modern red brick and metal facade is eye-catching, set back from the street and built recently (2010) to the highest standards in construction. The lot measures 25’ x 100’ and large bay windows distinguish each floor.
