Owner and developer Mack-Cali Realty Corp. recently unveiled a $75 million capital improvements project to upgrade its 4.3 million square-foot development on the Jersey City waterfront.

Mack-Cali said the improvement plans for Harborside, which were designed by Elkus Manfredi Architects, will be overseen by SJP Properties.

 “Together with the addition of a new N.Y. Waterway ferry terminal, serving the Hudson Yards and World Trade Center coming this fall, the capital improvements will facilitate far greater connectivity at Harborside,” Michael J. DeMarco, CEO of Mack-Cali, said. “In order to activate the waterfront and energize the neighborhood, it’s integral that we create a seamless experience for residents, workers and daily visitors.”

Mack-Cali said key components for the project will include:

  • Revamping the pedestrian routes and access, and refinishing hallways and lounge areas.
  • Creating a food hall named ‘The Marketplace’ where “Kiosks will be leased to a rotating roster of local vendors, with an eye toward making the public space a day-and-night dining destination.”
  • Reskinning the east side of Harborside 1 and the first three floors of Harborside 2 and 3.

The firm said these capital improvements are aimed at upgrading public and retail spaces in the Harborside complex. 

Earlier this year, Mack-Cali also announced plans to develop a 1.2 million square-foot built-to-suit tower adjacent to Harborside.
