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.
