Developers broke ground yesterday on a new home for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Hudson County that is slated to open in the fall of 2014.

After 30 years at its current facility in an adapted warehouse, the new custom quarters are part of a new 11-story, residential and retail development, with 422 rental apartments, to be called 18 Park in Jersey City.


Development partners Ironstate Development Co. and Kushner Real Estate Group entered a deal with the Boys and Girls Club to buy the existing building at 1 Canal St. and are seeking site approval to build a 660-unit residential building there, said Hoboken based developer David Barry, owner of Ironstate.

Barry said the developers have also established a $5 million endowment to benefit the Boys and Girls Club.
