The Heights section of Jersey City is perhaps the best-kept secret among New Yorkers. Its real estate hasn’t yet reached the prices of downtown, but it’s full of beautiful blocks with skyline views, hip new restaurants, and tons of green space. The Beckford is a new condo in the neighborhood that offers all this and more. Located right on Central Avenue, it has sleek urban luxury condos, along with a backyard and a shared roof deck with a BBQ grill and those NYC views. Currently, there are three two-bed, two-bath units on the market for $495,000.

The Landmarks Preservation Commission on Tuesday voted to approve plans for a debated mixed-use project and a new museum in the South Street Seaport. The Howard Hughes Corporation presented a revised proposal for 250 Water Street that includes one 324-foot tower to be built on a parking lot instead of the two 470-foot structures originally proposed in January. The project also involves constructing a new building for the South Street Seaport Museum at 89 South Street.
Developer LeFrak began work on Newport, the 600-acre planned community on the Jersey City waterfront, in 1986, and today they’re launching leasing at a new luxury rental within the neighborhood. The Beach is a 336-unit project that not only offers residences with views of the entire Manhattan skyline, but has several outdoor spaces including a landscaped waterfront courtyard with grilling stations and fire pits, an outdoor pool and sun deck overlooking Hudson Yards, and a sixth-floor roof deck with multiple seating areas. In addition, The Beach is located right next to Newport Green, the neighborhood’s four-acre park and playground complete with a sandy beach.

In recent years, the downtown Jersey City skyline has expanded in ways no one could have imagined 20 years ago. And a new mega-development is planned for an area previously untouched, just west of Liberty State Park and the Liberty Landing Marina. Known as The Cove JC, the 13-acre, mixed-use project is envisioned as a global hub for life science, tech, and medicine. It will be comprised of 1.4 million square feet of lab/tech office space and 1.6 million square feet of residences, along with a waterfront park.

A 100-year-old property in Midtown South will be reimagined as a modern office building with courtyards and terraces, flexible workspace, and lots of greenery, amenities the owners hope will draw tenants back to in-person work post-pandemic. Tribeca Investment Group, PGIM Real Estate, and Meadows Partners announced this week plans for a $350 million redevelopment of 295 Fifth Avenue, also known as the Textile Building. The owners acquired a 99-year ground lease for the 17-story building in 2019 for $375 million.

In preparation for a spring sales launch, new details and a teaser website for the 12-floor residential building at 208 Delancey Street on the Lower East Side have been revealed. As first spotted by New York Yimby, fresh renderings of the ODA New York-designed project show a bright lobby with a natural color scheme and an impressive rooftop terrace with plantings and multi-use areas. In total, the building measures 85,000 square feet and contains 85 units, including two ground-floor townhouses.

Sales have resumed at 200 Amsterdam Avenue, the 52-story Upper West Side tower that has faced a series of legal challenges since 2017. Developed in partnership by SJP Properties and Mitsui Fudosan, the building is 668 feet tall, the tallest in the neighborhood. The tower nearly lost that superlative after a judge in February 2020 ruled that as many as 20 floors may have to be chopped from the building for violating zoning rules. But last month, the New York State Appellate Court reversed that decision and declared the developer’s permit valid.
