Cast Iron Lofts II is the second building in the 387-unit Cast Iron Lofts Collection. Manhattan Building Company, alongside a few other developers, is well underway in creating a brand new residential neighborhood in the former industrial just outside the Holland Tunnel, also known as Lackawanna.
Manhattan Building Company’s piece of the larger neighborhood concept will ultimately include 2,312 residences in multiple buildings complemented by street-level retail space. The current phases include 20,000 square-feet of retail space occupied by 8 Springs Studio, a Pilates and Yoga studio; Viaquenti Academy, a bilingual pre-school; Brewshot, a coffee shop that has several other locations in Jersey City and NYC; and The Art House, a non-profit that will include a 99-seat black box theatre.
Although Cast Iron II is fully leased, the company’s next property, SOHO Lofts is nearing completion. This one brings 377 apartment homes in two high-rise buildings connected by a lavish lobby and amenity deck.
