One of Downtown Jersey City’s larger condominium projects has a second phase that will look a little different, and a few additional condos and workforce units will be coming to the property as well.

Late last year, changes were approved for the second leg of Shuster Development’s The Oakman project. The first phase is already built at 160 1st Street, and a T-shaped lot on 2nd Street that currently serves as surface parking will eventually be home to the property’s second phase.

Last month, more changes to the project were approved by the planning board, which included amendments to the building’s façade, floorplans, bulkhead, and an increase in unit count. The newest version of the development ups the number of condominiums in The Oakman’s second phase from 150 to 159 units, including 17 workforce housing units.

The 13-story project will still feature 28 parking spaces in a garage, a large analog-style clock on an upper portion of the building, and over 4,600 square feet of ground-floor retail split between two storefronts. NY Yimby reports that the biggest exterior change involves the façade, which will be comprised of elegant white brick, zinc Alucobond, and bone white Alucobond that will be arranged in alternating fins and metal panels.

Amenities at The Oakman’s second phase include a fitness room, bike storage, and a 3,396-square-foot communal roof deck sporting an outdoor swimming pool. There hasn’t been visible activity at the site and no timeline has been announced for the project, but the latest changes might indicate that a final version of this development is ready to go and could be coming soon.
