Two brand-new renderings of Harborside were just released by Mack-Cali Realty Corporation, further illustrating their $75 million capital investment in the complete transformation of their office buildings and the waterfront. Mirroring similar developments across the river along Manhattan’s West Side, Harborside will be a singular destination for living, working, and playing in Jersey City along the Hudson River.
NYC-based SJP Properties is set to manage the development project which includes ambitious architectural updates to recall Harborside’s beginnings as a railroad terminus and shipping station. Elkus Manfredi Architects drafted the new design and SJP Properties will also partner with Mack-Cali on a new 1.2 million square foot, build-to-suit office tower to be constructed next to the Harborside complex.
Most apparent in the new renderings is the reskinning of Harborside’s office buildings. All eight floors on the east side of Harborside 1 plus the first three floors of Harborside 2 and 3 are reclad as a sparkling curtain wall with spectacular light and views of the Hudson River and Manhattan.
**I figured I should start a topic on this redevelopment project because of its scale and undertaking and that the exterior reskinning has started this summer.
