JERSEY CITY | 351 Marin Boulevard | 406 FT | 38 FLOORS
Kushner Real Estate Plans 507 Units on Jersey City’s Marin Boulevard



A company whose co-founder’s family is no stranger to development and politics is behind a proposal for a massive new Downtown Jersey City high-rise.

A legal notice shows that KRE Acquisition Corp., an affiliate of the Kushner Real Estate (KRE) Group, has submitted plans to construct a development at 351 Marin Boulevard in Ward E. Located across from Hudson Hall, the property stretches from 1st to Bay Streets and has housed Avel Autoworks, Budget Car Rental, and Akian Auto Works.

Now, should KRE’s plans continue to move forward, the site would contain a building with 507 residential units. In addition, the complex would feature nearly 8,000 square feet of commercial space, 203 parking spaces, a 4,500-square-foot outdoor plaza, and amenities decks on the seventh and eighth floors.

The exact number of floors that the building would consist of is not stated in the notice, nor is it mentioned if any “affordable housing” would be included. Updated renderings that are featured on the website of Jersey City-based LWDMR Architects show plans for a building that is at least 30 stories tall and include outdoor terraces, but it is not clear whether those renderings are still valid.

The KRE Group’s landscape architect was set to present the plans in May to the Harsimus Cove Association community group. The notice, which was issued on September 14, shows that the Jersey City Planning Board is now scheduled to hear the plans during its meeting this Tuesday, September 25, at 5:30 p.m. KRE is seeking Preliminary and Final Major Site Plan approval for the project, along with variances such as minimum glass on the ground floor storefront, sidewalk width, and maximum signage.

I remember a lot of mid rises. That category is booming pipeline wise. Haven;t checked it out in a while though. Might be time to revisit.

Renderings Revealed, Ground Broken on 351 Marin in Jersey City




Following years of planning and revisions, two companies have teamed up to break ground on a mixed-use development that will construct a sculptural tower through a stretch of Downtown Jersey City that continues to rapidly evolve.

The development, which is being branded as 351 Marin, will include 507 luxury apartments. 205 of them will be studios, while 243 one-bedroom units and 59 two-bedroom spaces will complete the residential portion. No units will be designated as affordable. None are required to be since the property falls within the Morgan Grove Marin Redevelopment Plan.

The tallest portion of 351 Marin will rise about 383 feet, while a shorter eight-story base will connect to the tower. The development is utilizing a Community Benefit Bonus in the redevelopment plan that allows extra height and as a concession, the developers will build a 4,500-square foot pedestrian plaza outside the building.


The development’s final plans were drawn up by architectural firm Hollwich Kushner in collaboration with Madison-based HLW International. Significantly redesigned from earlier renderings, 351 Marin will feature a faceted base with angular planes slicing through it. A soaring double-height facade will rise to a geometric crown that hopes to harmonize with the existing skyline, while a freestanding pavilion defines the edge of the pedestrian plaza at the tower’s base.

Started on the tower level

Love the base, but the top would have been better with just a flat top, and not the hat. Still, a nice looking tower!

A one or two week series of photos. Both buildings are a couple floors taller now (these are from 2 weeks ago)
