The spring edition of JC Friday was extra lively this past Friday night, as the Novado Gallery celebrated its grand opening at 110 Morgan Street. Joining the celebration at the Modera Lofts were Jersey City officials including Deputy Mayor Marcos Vigil and representatives of Mill Creek Residential.
The contemporary, 3,000 sq. ft. Novado Gallery is the latest addition to the former Butler Brothers warehouse space. Rotating exhibitions here will share space with a ceramics and design section where national and local artisans will display live edge and industrial furniture.
“When seeking retail tenants for Modera Lofts’ ground floor, we were committed to finding the right fit,” said Richard Murphy of Mill Creek. “We knew the space would appeal to individuals who are drawn to the beauty and unique aspects of the building. Since embarking on this amazing adaptive reuse development, Mill Creek has been certain that the local arts community would be an integral component of the project’s success.”
“Jersey City has and will always be supportive of sustaining and advancing the arts,” said Deputy Mayor Marcos Vigil. “Novado Gallery is just the latest commitment to our unique and growing cultural and arts community and we look forward to even more such outlets in the future.”
Novado Gallery adds to the appeal of the eight-story, 366-unit Modera Lofts, an industrial-chic residential community in the Powerhouse Arts District that’s nearing full occupancy less than a year after opening. The lofts include amenities like a hotel-style rooftop deck with a dog run, 24/7 concierge service, a direct-access private parking garage, and a clubroom equipped with pool table, shuffle boards, and flat-screen televisions.
The gallery’s inaugural exhibit, Identity, runs through Thursday, March 9th.
