River of Dreams: Developers Banking on Harrison as Next Big Thing
Where is the next Hoboken or Jersey City? Young professionals who work in New York City can look further up the PATH train line to Harrison, NJ.
Advance Realty Group of Bedminster has committed to developing a 132-acre urban district in the Hudson County city. Known as the “Riverbend District” for its position along the Passaic River, the area was once home to bustling industry. In the coming years, look for a complete transformation as old factories give way to tree-lined neighborhoods.
For Phase 1, Advance Realty partnered with DeBartolo Development, LLC to develop 1,000 apartments and 20,000 square feet of retail space on three blocks. First up, at Cape May Street and Frank E. Rodgers Boulevard, a 5-story, 286-unit building with studio and one- and two-bedroom apartments and an on-site parking deck will be ready for occupancy in Summer 2017.
Transportation will play a key part in making the area attractive to those seeking modern, urban lifestyle. The nearby NY & NJ Port Authority PATH Train is undergoing a $256 million renovation and a new I-280 Interchange is planned for easier access.
Nearby attractions include the 25,000-seat New York Red Bulls Arena, home to Major League Soccer’s New York Red Bulls, as well as NJPAC, the Prudential Center and Newark’s Downtown and Ironbound districts.
Construction Pros of NJ is proud to be a part of this exciting redevelopment.
“It’s going to be a great place to live, work and play,” says Al Best, Managing Partner of Construction Pros. “We look forward to seeing this vision become a reality.”
