As part of an ongoing transformation of Harborside, Mack-Cali Realty Corporation, earlier this week, held an unveiling event for a new sculpture hanging inside the atrium of the downtown Jersey City building.
Designed by Jersey City-based artist Robert Koch, the sculpture features nine steel spheres suspended at varying lengths. The spheres signify the diverse cultures and ethnicities that exist across Jersey City, as well as the importance these subcultures have in creating the local community.
Koch’s work centers solely on steel sculpture inspired by organic movements found in nature. He’s been represented by prestigious galleries in Provincetown, Bridgehampton and Manhattan. A similar sphere sculpture is on display at 150 Bay Street.
The installation is part of Mack-Cali’s re-imagining of Harborside. Inspired by the area’s industrial past, Mack-Cali is transforming the mixed-use asset into Harborside Terminal–a live, work, play destination that will bring high-end dining and shopping experiences to the waterfront building.
