Halpern Real Estate Ventures today announced the topping out of 49 Fisk Street at six stories, bringing the new residential building on Jersey City’s revitalizing West Side neighborhood into focus.
The construction milestone for the Opportunity Zone development puts the building on track for an end-of-year leasing launch for its 337 luxury rental residences and impressive suite of amenities, according to the developer, which tapped The Corcoran Group as exclusive marketing and leasing agent.
“We’re thrilled to mark the building’s construction progress, which is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our entire team who are helping to bring this exciting project to life,” said Joel Halpern, President and Managing Director of Investments for Halpern. “49 Fisk Street will further elevate the residential options available to existing and new residents of Jersey City’s West Side, where significant investment and municipal focus is stimulating the rise of a new destination center.”
JRM Construction Management is the Construction Manager for 49 Fisk Street.
Sustainable Development that Enhances the Resident Experience
Designed by renowned Minno & Wasko Architects and Planners, with interiors and amenities curated by The Meshberg Group, 49 Fisk Street will incorporate design elements and innovative technologies that consider both the environment and the people that live there. Sustainable features will include a waste diversion and energy recovery system, rooftop solar panels, electric vehicle chargers, and rainwater collection for irrigation uses.
The eco-friendly project will be underpinned by a network of open space activated for resident use, including a 14,000+ square-foot landscaped courtyard with green space, an 18,000+ square-foot rooftop with a 360-degree view, and a community garden.
An impressive 50,000 square feet in all of indoor and outdoor amenities will deliver both a functional and exciting live/work/play environment crafted from a post-Covid mindset. In addition to the substantial outdoor space, residents will enjoy private and public co-working spaces for flexible work-from-home models. A hotel-like lobby with an interconnected stair to the second floor will provide an open and welcoming entrance for residents and their guests, while additional amenities will include a speakeasy-style bar, fitness center, and covered parking onsite.
