DVORA 175 is a new 148-unit rental building coming to Jersey City, and just like a lot of the luxury rentals springing up in the area, it has a rooftop pool, this one with a “Miami-inspired resort” vibe, according to a press lease. The 14-story building at 175 Second Street is located in what’s known as the Powerhouse Arts District, a section of downtown full of old warehouse buildings. Though pricing has not yet been released, leasing will kick off next month with initial occupancy slated for October.

The L-shaped building front Second Street and Marin Boulevard. It was designed by Fogarty Finger Architects to wrap around a historic, low-rise building on the corner that houses a Packer shoe store. The architects added a modern version of a monumental clock on the building facade that can be seen down busy Marin Boulevard.
The residences range from one- to three-bedrooms, some of which have an additional den, as well as garden and penthouse homes. Many units have balconies, and all have custom built-in closets, in-unit washer/dryers, Calacatta porcelain tile floors, Italian custom-built vanities and countertops, and smart thermostats.
But it’s really the amenities that steal the show, most notably the roof deck, which “has been transformed into a Miami-inspired resort experience complete with a pool, private cabanas, BBQ areas, outdoor showers, and green space,” according to the press release. Other amenities include an indoor/outdoor lobby with a fireplace, upper deck mezzanine level for co-working, a state-of-the-art fitness center, and on-site enclosed parking. There’s also a street-level cafe open to the public.
A special DVORA app will allow residents to reserve times in the amenity spaces (to adhere to social distancing guidelines), as well as to access virtual events and redeem perks from local partner businesses.
In terms of location, DVORA 175 is prime. It’s just across the street from a shopping plaza with a Shoprite, Bed Bath & Beyond, and BJ’s and a few blocks from Grove Street, where there are tons of restaurants and bars and a PATH station. Other transportation options include the Light Rail, with the Harismus Cove station just a couple block aways, as well as the nearby ferry.
