The work of a local artist is now on display at Harborside in a Jersey City, where Mack-Cali Realty Corp. is hoping to transform its flagship office complex.
The real estate investment trust on Wednesday unveiled the hanging sculpture by Robert Koch, which is being displayed inside the Harborside atrium. The work features nine spheres suspended at varying lengths, Mack-Cali said, “signifying Jersey City’s diverse cultures and ethnicities and the importance that different subcultures have in creating a more dynamic community.”
In a news release, the REIT said the display is part of its commitment to arts and culture in the city, as it proceeds with a “reimagination” of Harborside inspired by the property’s industrial past. The transformed Harborside will feature high-end dining and shopping in an open layout, with easy access to a waterfront esplanade and sweeping views of the Hudson River and Manhattan skyline.
