Situated west of I-78 and bordering the burgeoning Bergen-Lafayette neighborhood in Jersey City, 262 Johnston is a new mixed-use 24 story residential tower that will become an iconic landmark signaling the gateway to Bergen-Lafayette. MHS Architects designed 262 Johnston for Alpine Residential and Fields Grade Development.
The surrounding network of rail and bridge infrastructure inspired the façade design with an articulated metal and glass detailing. The east facade is pulled back featuring an open grillwork of residential balconies with magnificent views of Jersey City and Manhattan skylines. At grade the building transitions from the scale and rhythm of the adjacent two-story masonry townhomes to 24 stories encompassing 169 residential units, roughly 9,000 sf of commercial space, 10 parking spaces, and an impressive panoramic pool deck.
