A Tower

A by the Athena Group, is a condominium tower on Second and Washington Streets in downtown Jersey City. Like many downtown towers, the residential units are built on top of a bulbous parking garage.

The tower sits on the edge of the Powerhouse Arts District, a neighborhood originally envisioned as a community of Artists. The red brick and square lines were meant to imitate the lines of the former warehouse district. Behind the tower sits a small park, constructed by the developer as required by the city.

Luxury apartments just outside of the powerhouse arts district, capitalizing on the hip factor of the PAD. Currently, the building has solid views, but approved towers across the street from the building will almost certainly obscure some of those views.

The building was designed to mimic the appearance of the nearby Powerhouse building. The lofts are in the city's art district, a former industrial center designated by the city as a bastion for artists and galleries, though few devleopments seem to be adhereing to the standards. The luxury style lofts are nearing completion for occupancy.

The Powerhouse was built in 1906 to power the railroads running in the Tubes connecting the Jersey City waterfront and Manhattan. The Tubes later became the PATH system, although the Powerhouse has been idle for more than a half century. In recent years, the powerhouse has developed a cult following and was the namesake to the now defunct Powerhouse Arts District. The district was designed to provide discounted housing for artists to encourage a lively arts community. The powerhouse is currently undergoing renovations, though a final plan has not been resolved. High rise development around the Powerhouse will almost certainly put further pressure on preservation efforts.
