Mack-Cali Plans ‘Harborside Terminal’, Jersey City’s Hip Waterfront Destination
By Gillian Blair
February 22, 2017

You may have noticed that Markers Restaurant near Exchange Place closed, and if you’ve walked through the Harborside Financial Center recently, you’ve seen that the small shops, restaurants, and even the CVS have shuttered. The closings are part of a planned $75 million transformation of the complex into Harborside Terminal–“depart from the ordinary, arrive at the extraordinary.”

Mack-Cali Realty Corporation, who owns Harborside, is making major capital investments along the waterfront in the retail, commercial, residential, and public spaces to create a “pedestrian-friendly urban landscape at the water’s edge” and a real “live work play” kind of neighborhood.

“Be Here Now” is Mack-Cali’s call to action, capitalizing on the energetic evolution of Jersey City. Renderings depict a day and night destination that looks like it will be Jersey City’s very own version of NYC’s Brookfield Place. Walls of glass and an ambitious atrium will host music and dance performances, art installations, events, and more. The complex will also complete the neighborhood with a high-end grocery store and coffee shop. Experiential retail and a Marketplace reminiscent of food halls in Europe, offering ethnic culinary specialties, are also planned. Read more
