Bergen-Lafayette is growing! With 424 Whiton breaking ground this week and a proposal for a 20-unit development at 323-325 Pine Street and a 55-unit at 342 Johnston Avenue, the upward trajectory of Bergen-Lafayette, particularly in terms of appreciation, seems to be continuing. The new building will rise six stories and bring 30 new rental units to the neighborhood, two of which will be dedicated to affordable housing. The property will be a mix of one – and two-bedrooms, plus a few units will have dens and large private terraces.
And Harborside is really taking the cake in the news this week! With yesterday’s announcement of new restaurant pop-ups and retail plans, the development also unveiled a new sculpture hanging inside the atrium of the downtown Jersey City building. The nine-steel sculpture is designed by Jersey City-based artist, Robert Koch, and signifies the diverse cultures and ethnicities that exist across Jersey City. To read more about these developments, and evolving neighborhood culture, visit Jersey Digs.
