Transit-oriented rental development breaks ground in Jersey City (SLIDESHOW)

A new transit-oriented, mixed-use development has broken ground in Jersey City, according to developer Saul Bardosh.

Construction work has begun on the 20,000-square-foot, five-story, 10-unit, transit-oriented development, Bardosh said. The project is slated for completion in mid-2020.

The development, which is a five-minute walk from the Journal Square PATH Station, includes a mix of one- and three-bedroom units each with a balcony or backyard.

Amenities for residents include a vegetable garden, a gym, a bike storage room and private storage space in the basement.

“This project addresses the growing desire for all-inclusive in-house community experiences,” said Esther Sperber, founder of New York-based Studio ST Architects, the architectural firm that designed the development.

The building will also feature 900 square feet of retail space.

“The development’s location next to public transportation along with the high-end housing will make 36 Jones Street an ideal place to live for renters looking for a city experience with a neighborhood feel,” Bardosh said.
