Construction of The Lively, a 180-unit mixed-used project in Jersey City’s Powerhouse Arts District, has begun and will carry through summer 2019, developer LMC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Lennar, announced last week.

“Jersey City, particularly the downtown district, is experiencing a resurgence as it evolves with growing culture, new restaurants, bars and retail.” City President of the New York tri-state region for LMC, Greg Belew, said in a news release. “The area is attracting more residents with its industrial-chic energy, turn-of-the-century architecture and eclectic arts.”

Located at 321 Warren Street, The Lively will consist of 180 apartments, a black box theater, and over 1,300 square feet of retail. Nimbus Dance Works, currently located at 165 Newark Avenue, will operate the 14,200-square-foot theater while Lackawanna Coffee will occupy a portion of the retail space at The Lively.

The site of The Lively is located two blocks from the Grove Street PATH station and the Harborside Light Rail station.

The developer said it anticipates move-ins to begin in the summer of 2019.

“We’re thrilled to be a part of this evolution and to bring a community to market that will further energize the district and deliver a highly sought-after luxury living experience to the area,” said Belew.

Resident amenities will include 24-hour concierge services, a fitness center, pool, BBQ grills, and a demonstration kitchen to name a few. The project consists of a mix of studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom units.

Fogarty Finger is the architect and interior designer of the Lively. Clifton-based Parkwood Development had previously intended to develop the site and had been awarded development rights in November 2015. Lennar purchased the site from Parkwood Development one year later.

  1. How exciting! The Lively will no doubt be a magnet for young, poor upcoming artists and also those artists who were evicted from JC to make this possible. Congats to all and I personally cannot wait for the first watercolor showings by those ultra creative bankers wives!
