618 Pavonia Avenue takes off in Jersey City

Construction peaked at 618 Pavonia Avenue, a 27-story mixed-use tower in Jersey City’s seven-building Homestead Place masterplan, spanning 2.1 million square feet. Designed by C3D Architecture and developed by Namdar Group, the 293-foot-tall structure will produce 376 residences with 24 studios, 264 one-bedroom units, 80 two-bedroom and eight three-bedroom units, as well as 5,500 square feet of land on the ground floor and second to fourth floor office space. 618 Pavonia Avenue is bounded by Pavonia Avenue to the south, Homestead Place to the east, and Van Reipen Avenue to the north.

Recent photos show the complete reinforced concrete superstructure, with the floor-to-ceiling glass curtain wall surrounding about half of the building.

Other associated addresses are 87 Newkirk Street, which is now full and fully occupied, 26 Cottage Street and 26-32 Van Reipen Avenue, and 626 Newark Avenue.
