After months of construction cataloging in our Forum, one of New Jersey's tallest buildings is now complete and ready to begin residential occupancy. Developers Ironstate Development and Roseland Residential Trust have officially launched the first phase of leasing in the 69-storey Jersey City Urby, which tops out with a flat roof 217 metres above the ground.

The building's 762 apartments are broken down into a mix of studios, one-, and two-bedroom suites, with the cheapest units starting from $2,000 a month. One bedrooms are fetching at least $2,300 while two bedrooms are going for $3,400 a month. East-facing units are gifted with views of the Hudson River and the Lower Manhattan skyline, including the growing World Trade Center complex.

Like any new residential development, Jersey City Urby comes with a wide selection of on-site amenities, from a fully equipped fitness centre to a communal kitchen. Those are two of the more standard amenities most highrises will offer, but this project also comes with a unique creative lab for residents to cultivate their flower arranging and interior design skills. A heated outdoor pool and adjacent deck round out the conveniences.

The building's shifted stacked-block aesthetic was envisioned by Amsterdam-based Concrete. Future phases will bring another two towers to the complex and adopt this cantilevered architectural style. The first wave of residents are expected to move into the building in early April.
