Terrence T. McDonald at NJ.com recently updated his report on the Jersey City building boom. Projects include Silverman‘s Charles & Co. on Grove St at Montgomery, Baker Building in Bergen-Lafayette, Ironstate‘s 70 and 90 Columbus, The Criterion at The Beacon and many others.

To whet your appetite ….

Developers Eric and Paul Silverman have been building in Jersey City for over 30 years — before it was cool. The brothers’ new building, Charles and Co., a 99-unit Grove Street building with office and retail space, is opening this summer. Eric Silverman told The Jersey Journal the city’s newest boom is part of a global trend of more people choosing city living over suburbia.

Earlier this month, ground was broken for an 83-unit apartment building on Suydam Avenue in Bergen-Lafayette, the largest development Ward F has seen in years. The apartment complex, which will be named Baker Building after the Baker Coating Factory that used to stand in its place, will be a 100,000-square foot wood frame building less than four blocks away from the Liberty State Park Light Rail station.

The Criterion, a 271-unit tower at the Beacon — the former Jersey City Medical Center complex on Baldwin Avenue — is also expected to open up this year.

Meanwhile, Ironstate is building a 44-story, 670-unit tower at Grand and Grove streets on the site of the old Boys and Girls Clubs of Hudson County. That project, which could break ground late this year, will come with park improvements and an extension of Grove Street into the Liberty Harbor North area.
