148 First Street
Jersey City, New Jersey
Design and preparation of construction documents for this newly constructed 12- story, 119-unit residential building located in the ‘Powerhouse Arts District’ of downtown Jersey City was a joint-venture between LWDMR and Fogerty-Finger Architects of New York. Construction is on a tight urban-infill site within a flood- zone, necessitating raising the ground floor above grade.
The building is of reinforced concrete construction, with projecting balconies at the rear. A penthouse level is set back from the front elevation. Amenities include a common rooftop terrace with a pool and an enclosed lounge.
