“We are excited to share the construction progress at Journal Square Urby and look forward to opening our second Urby location in Jersey City,” Urby Founder and CEO David Barry said in a statement.
“Journal Square Urby will offer the unique shared spaces and inspired design that define the Urby brand, while also creating an intimate boutique environment for residents to connect with one another and the culturally-rich neighborhood.”
Topping out at 265 feet, the space includes 317 brand new apartments, as well as a roof garden with a pool, work from home spaces, and views of the Manhattan skyline.
Journal Square Urby will be the seventh Urby location to open nationwide and the second in Jersey City, following the 2017 debut of a 69-story property in the city’s Harborside waterfront neighborhood.
With an expected spring 2024 opening, planned amenities include an integrated cafe in the lobby, a huge state-of-the-art gym complete with an attached yoga studio and stretching area, and a suite of indoor and outdoor features on the 25th floor, such as work from home spaces, a roof garden, pool, BBQ areas, and a dog park with panoramic views.
The building was designed by Concrete, the award-winning Dutch design firm responsible for citizenM Hotels around the world, with HLW serving as the executive architect.
Meanwhile, outdoor spaces will be designed by internationally renowned landscape architect Bureau Bas Smets, which was recently awarded the commission for the grounds of the legendary Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris.
Urby is a joint venture between Barry and Brookfield Properties.
