via Steve Lubetkin/GlobeSt.com – Construction has begun on 207 Van Vorst Street in Jersey City, NJ, consisting of two 15-story buildings with 408 residences and approximately 14,500 square feet of ground-floor retail space.
The project, which is being developed by Fields Development Group, was designed by architectural firm Marchetto Higgins Stieve. McLaren Engineering Group is providing structural engineering design and construction support for the project.
“The latest among a multitude of multifamily buildings that we are constructing in Jersey City, 207 Van Vorst is a great example of the type of challenging project that Fields Construction excels at completing,” says Fields construction principal Jim Caulfield. “We’re excited to expand upon our hard-earned reputation here on New Jersey’s Gold Coast, where we’re building structures for many of the market’s premier developers.”
The building, which is supported by steel-pipe-bearing piles, integrates two distinct structure types: an innovative light-gauge steel framing in a nine-story structure atop a five-story concrete podium.
