Brookfield Properties and G&S Investors completed the second of two large residential towers in Jersey City, bringing another 432 luxury apartments to the city’s booming waterfront.
The developer on Wednesday announced the opening of the 35-story tower at 444 Warren St., the final piece of what’s known as VYV. Located just west of the Hudson River, the property includes a mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom units with an expansive indoor and outdoor amenity floor that is connected to its three-year-old sister tower.
All told, VYV now houses a combined 853 units.
“With the opening of the south tower, we are excited to complete our twin residential project VYV as part of our larger Hudson Exchange development, which is bringing new housing, public open space, retail and dining to the Jersey City waterfront,” said Alireza Esmaeilzadeh, senior vice president of development for Brookfield Properties. “VYV brings unparalleled amenities and views to Jersey City living within a dynamic community with great access to transit, local retail, restaurants and more.”
In a news release, the developer touted features such as a two-level fitness center, sports bar and outdoor deck with a pool grilling stations, lounge and bistro seating, fire pits and a movie screening area. The property’s indoor lounge space offers fireplaces, games and media rooms, while residents also have access to private work pods and conference rooms.
The opening of the tower coincides with the installation of a large-scale, interactive sculpture from artist Maximilian Pelzmann on the eighth-floor amenity deck, the news release said. Pelzmann is known for exhibiting large-scale interactive sculptures in public parks and spaces in Brooklyn, Manhattan, northern New Jersey and Europe.
VYV offers views of the Hudson River, the Statue of Liberty, Jersey City and the Manhattan skyline, Brookfield said. The property is steps from the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail’s Harsimus Cove station and minutes from Jersey City’s retail, dining and recreational offerings.
