50 Columbus, luxury rental tower in downtown Jersey City

50 Columbus is the fraternal twin to New York City residential tower, the "Zebra Building" on the West Side. The two towers share a pedigree, architect Costas Kondylis. 50 Columbus differs from the zebra building in that the alternating black and white brick on the New York building are of varying widths.

The luxury rental tower is the first phase of a three tower project. Attached to the west side of the parking will eventually be a pair of 48 story towers as well.

A Tower

A by the Athena Group, is a condominium tower on Second and Washington Streets in downtown Jersey City. Like many downtown towers, the residential units are built on top of a bulbous parking garage.

The tower sits on the edge of the Powerhouse Arts District, a neighborhood originally envisioned as a community of Artists. The red brick and square lines were meant to imitate the lines of the former warehouse district. Behind the tower sits a small park, constructed by the developer as required by the city.

Shore Club

The two tower condominium project in Newport is connected by a low rise base and has a shared parking garage. Five retail spaces are in the base of the building. The south tower was completed first with some work still left to do on the north tower. The Shore Club had spectacular views of the Hudson River and New York City for about 6 months before the 31 story Aqua tower rose immediately to the east of the Shore.

Metropolis Towers

Two co-op apartment buildings located on a large gated plot of land just east of Grove Street, behind City Hall and the Grove Street PATH station. The towers originally had a small, low rise retail structure connecting the two buildings. This structure was recently removed for the installation of a parking garage. Plans have been approved for two additional towers along Columbus Blvd, and speculation exists that an additional two towers are planned for Montgomery Street. At present, the fences and long blocks surrounding the complex present a very pedestrian unfriendly environment.

The complex is a co-op, however, many units are owned by a single management company. The co-op had gone bankrupt in the last decade.

Mandalay on the Hudson is a rather generic looking high rise condominium tower overlooking Newport to the north and the financial district to the south. To the east, stunning views of Manhattan are soon to be ruined with the construction of an office tower at the end of the Second Street. The building is block away from the Harborside Light Rail station, though quite a ways from the nearest PATH stations.

Marbella Tower

For now, the tallest residential tower in New Jersey, soon to be surpassed by the Trump Towers and 77 Hudson Street, both currently under construction, or the proposed Metropolitan, not yet approved. Not only is Marbella a particularly tall structure, but as there are no other buildings sharing its block, and the building overlooks the metro plaza parking lot, the height is accentuated.

Thomas Jefferson at Newport

The more southern and eastern of two twin buildings at the corner of Washington Boulevard and Newport Parkway, part of the Presidential Towers in Newport. The once uninterupted views of Manhattan are now being blocked by the under construction Shore Club at Newport.

These are two of the oldest residential towers in Newport and a rather iconic part of the skyline. Both are clearly visible from all approaches to the Holland tunnel, and so have come to define the skyline of Jersey City's waterfront.
