50 Columbus

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.

Typical of big builder apartment, the units seem more like a suburban style complex than one suited for the downtown area.

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.

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.
