Room with a View
A 41-storey condo in Jersey City
Jersey City, NJ
If you live on the NJ side of the Hudson there are pluses and minuses. The plus, is the view; the minus, the car. A new typology has sprung up along the rivers facing Manhattan — crystal towers perched on chunky parking garages. This proposal treats the base as a figural animated member of the ground plane landscape, reminiscent of a loyal dog greeting his owner at the front door after a long day at work.
The tower above was faceted in order to provide added lines of sight towards Manhattan. This 41-story condominium on the Hudson waterfront in Jersey City was the last project Scott served as the senior designer for while at Gruzen Samton.
