Stacked blue boxes will be tallest towers in New Jersey

January 15, 2014 06:10PM

A trio of zig-zagging apartment towers will soon shift the New Jersey skyline. The first, a 69-story building that upon completion will be the highest in New Jersey, broke ground today.

The Jersey City project, dubbed URL Harborside, is being developed by the Mack-Cali Realty Corporation in partnership with Ironstate Development Company. Designed by the Dutch firm Concrete, the towers will resemble stacked blue boxes and will feature a number of flood-proofing features.

URL Harborside 1, as the first tower will be known, will have 763 of the trio’s 2,358 total rental units and include commercial space, a parking garage, cafe, gym, roof gardens and terraces. There is no word yet on what rents the developers will be asking. [Curbed]Julie Strickland

  • Tallest building and tallest residential building are different categories. These will be the tallest residential building. The Goldman Sachs Tower just down the street will remain the tallest building in New Jersey, but it is commercial.
