While sky-high rental buildings have started to define the area near Jersey City’s westernmost PATH station, a smaller scale condominium project has officially commenced construction along one of the neighborhood’s quiet side streets.
Jersey City-based The Stonebridge Group held a groundbreaking ceremony on November 14 for their 38-unit development project that they’ve named The Journalist. Two existing homes and a shed formerly occupying the land at 96-100 Tuers Avenue have already been torn down at the 10,000-square-foot property, which welcomed Mayor Steve Fulop during the commencement.
The development was approved by the planning board last June and a new rendering was released following the ceremony. The development was designed by New York-based GRO Architects and will utilize a combination of exterior brick façade and fiber cement panels.
The condominiums at The Journalist will be split evenly between one- and two-bedroom spaces with 19 of each. Several of the first-floor units will sport side balconies, while three of the second-floor units will have sizable private rear decks that take advantage of the depth of the lots.
Other amenities at the elevator building will include a playroom, game room, a common roof deck, a wine cellar, and a bicycle storage room with space for 54 bikes. The Stonebridge Group is hoping to wrap up construction on The Journalist by September 2020.
