Mack-Cali Realty Corporation and its joint venture partner, Ironstate Development Company, broke ground in January on a new type of residential tower: ULR® Harborside. URL® (Urban Ready Life) is a direct response to the needs and desires of those looking to live in apartments that use less energy, provide more innovative spaces, and offer public areas that foster community. URL® Harborside will ultimately feature three towers comprising 2,358 residences overlooking the Manhattan skyline.
URL® Harborside, a uniquely designed, 69-story, multi-family residential tower, will bring 763 contemporary rental residences to Harborside and the Jersey City Waterfront. The project features a contemporary design, on-site amenities, breathtaking views, and ideal transportation access. The exciting project will create hundreds of jobs in Jersey City, including construction and other full-time employment opportunities.
The URL® concept was developed by Ironstate president, David Barry, to provide people with innovative housing that maximizes space, reduces energy consumption, is more environmentally sustainable, offers close and easy access to public transportation, and provides public areas that foster community. Designed by acclaimed Dutch architecture firm, Concrete, URL® Harborside will be a flagship property with a distinctive tower reflective of its waterfront landscape.
The first tower at URL® Harborside was topped off in September 2015.
