New Renderings and Details Emerge as Jersey City’s Bayfront Moves Forward
The first phase of construction will be from BRP Development Group and Bayfront Development Partners LLC and see 16 acres developed into mid-rise buildings including a total of 1,092 units, 35% of which will be set aside as affordable housing.
“Jersey City will be selecting a contractor to build infrastructure at the mostly vacant parcel on February 23. Per the Request for Proposal, the initial portion of the work will focus on the construction of roadway embankments and the placement of surcharge material. The RFP specifically calls for the demolition and removal of existing utilities followed by the installation of settlement plates, drainage pipes, and structures.”
The project is being overseen by the Jersey City Redevelopment Agency. Planned totals are 8,000 residential units, 23 acres of open space, a boat launch, retail, an 110,000-square-foot K-8 school with a separate gym and auditorium space, and a new light rail station.
