Fields Construction Co. has broken ground on the second of two apartment towers near St. Peter’s Prep high school in Jersey City, the firm announced.
The 16-story project, 207 Van Vorst St., calls for 153 luxury apartments and 7,305 square feet of retail space in city’s Paulus Hook neighborhood. And it comes as construction continues for the 15-story first phase, which includes 255 units and another 7,237 square feet of retail, with completion slated for fall 2017.
Completion of phase two is slated for winter 2018, the Hoboken-based firm said in a news release.
The project, which is being developed by Fields Development Group, was designed by architectural firm Marchetto Higgins Stieve. McLaren Engineering Group is providing structural engineering design and construction support for the project.
“Located in a densely populated section of Jersey City, right next to a school, 207 Van Vorst Street presents the type of construction challenges that we’ve become adept at overcoming,” Fields Construction Principal Jim Caulfield said in a prepared statement. “As we look to take on new projects throughout New Jersey, these two buildings will serve as a shining examples of the world-class work that our team produces.”
