Executives from the West Side Square Development Fund were recently joined by Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop and Jersey City officials to celebrate the groundbreaking for West Side Square, a 477-unit mixed-use community located at 66 Broadway in Jersey City.
The community is scheduled to be completed in the summer of 2026.
Located less than a mile from the Journal Square PATH station, West Side Square will be a key piece in the continued transformation of Jersey City’s Journal Square area. The dynamic community will join the diverse mix of new housing, offices, retail and public open spaces found across the neighborhood.
The development of West Side Square will be overseen by the West Side Square Development Fund, a focused investment fund headquartered in Toronto. Led by LanTree Developments, Altree Developments Inc., Lanterra Developments Inc. and Westdale Properties, the West Side Square Development Fund will harness each company’s decades of expertise in acquiring, developing and operating real estate assets across Canada and the U.S.
“Jersey City’s ideal location, paired with an unparalleled range of entertainment and dining options, continues to make it one of the most in-demand residential destinations in New Jersey,” Zev Mandelbaum, CEO and president at Altree Developments, one of the four companies leading the West Side Square Development Fund, said. “Once completed, West Side Square will seamlessly encapsulate the essence of Jersey City — a unique blend of living, working and leisure — offering our future residents an unparalleled experience at their doorstep.”
Raphael Mandelbaum, principal at LanTree Developments, another key piece of the leadership team of the West Side Square Development Fund, added: “We are excited to work with our partners from Altree Developments Inc., Lanterra Developments Inc. and Westdale Properties to shape the ground beneath our feet into the latest mixed-use community in Jersey City. Rooted in a shared dedication to superior quality and forward-thinking design, our collaboration promises a distinctive experience for every resident and guest who becomes part of this vibrant community.”
“Once completed, West Side Square will become the latest addition to the vibrant Journal Square neighborhood, intertwining modern living, leisure and community in one dynamic space. We’re thrilled to welcome this exceptional addition to our diverse and thriving city,” Fulop said.
Designed by MHS Architects, West Side Square will combine spacious living paired with an unmatched amenities package. Each of the community’s studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments will include modern designs from Childs Dreyfus Group, an award-winning interior design firm, with stainless steel appliances, modern kitchens/baths and in-unit washer/dryers.
Residents will also enjoy a full suite of lifestyle amenities, including an outdoor deck with a swimming pool, grilling stations, seating/lounging areas and a dog run. The accompanying indoor amenities will include a state-of-the-art fitness center, coworking spaces and a community room for private events. Beyond its resident amenities, the community also will feature 9,814 square feet of ground-level retail space.
