Four-year-old conception of Harrison Urban Square by the project’s developers, Ironstate Development

The once underwhelming industrial center of Harrison, N.J. is back on track for its billion-dollar makeover, the New York Times reported.

With the slogan “Connect Here,” the city will look to draw residents to the new “Harrison
MetroCentre” by highlighting its proximity to Manhattan, Hoboken and Newark, as well as a
host of renovations and new housing projects.

This includes 275 new rental units in the Harrison Station apartment complex, developed by Ironstate Development and Pegasus Group, adjacent to the 98-year-old
PATH station and within walking distance of the New York Red Bulls’ new soccer stadium. Complete with an
attended lobby, fitness center, outdoor pool, volleyball court and lounge, the building will start
leasing next month.

The nearby PATH station will see a $173 million renovation, with the addition of a pedestrian
walkway, plaza and new parking garages. There will also be a new glass-and-steel covered
pavilion over the platform for passengers, replacing the old roof that did not cover the entire
platform.

The Harrison MetroCentre plan was originally announced in 2002, but progress has been slow
because of site difficulties and a poor condominium market. [NYT]
