JERSEY CITY, New Jersey
804 Newark is a new mixed-use development proposed for a prominent corner site in the Little India neighborhood of Jersey City. The first and partial second floors are designated as commercial space providing an open plan with a double-height floor-to-ceiling glass storefront that opens to the corner, contributing to the lively retail environment of the area. The front facade on Newark is narrow relative to the long side of the building, extending out over the corner and returning to align with the adjacent building. The long facade is designed as an articulated metal surface that undulates to accommodate variations in the residential programs at the interior. Clad in corrugated aluminum siding, textured pre-cast concrete panels at the street level, and compressed paper-board panels at the front of the building, this material palette executed in a monochrome brings texture and interest while maintaining a level of restraint amongst the busy visual language of the street.
