Urby is expanding its footprint beyond Staten Island, and making a new home further up north in Jersey City. Ironstate Development’s community-focused residential project is set to open its second location on Greene Street in Jersey City. For this particular project, Ironstate collaborated with Roseland Residential Trust, and leasing on Jersey City Urby’s 762 apartments is set to get underway sometime next month.

But just a few weeks before the launch, the developers have now debuted the teaser site for the 69-story tower. Much like its sister project on Staten Island’s north shore, this development too will be focused on tenant interaction through a variety of social spaces, residential programming, and collaborations with local institutions.

At Staten Island Urby, residents have their own farm, coffee shop, and barbecue joint, and the future tenants of Jersey City Urby can expect amenities along those lines.

The tower in Jersey City was designed by Dutch firm Concrete, which is known for its design of CitizenM hotels across the world. The apartments at this tower will be available in studios, one, and two-bedroom sizes and rents are expected to start around $2,000/month.

Following the launch of the Jersey City development, the next Urby location is set to open in Harrison, New Jersey by the end of the year. The 69-story tower is part of a three-building development that will bring nearly 2,400 apartments to the neighborhood. At 713-feet tall, Jersey City Urby is also one of the tallest buildings in the state.
