Joint Venture to Develop 529-Unit Apartment Tower at 90 Columbus in Jersey City
JERSEY CITY, N.J. — Ironstate Development and Panepinto Properties are developing the final tower at the team’s multi-phase Columbus Drive project in Jersey City. Located at 90 Columbus Drive, the 50-story, 539-unit luxury apartment tower will be the fourth tower in the development, which already features residential buildings at 50 and 70 Columbus Drive, a more than 900-space parking garage and an under-construction 152-room Marriott Residence Inn at 80 Columbus Drive. The joint venture broke ground on the final tower earlier this year and completion is slated for October 2018. Completion for the hotel is slated for this winter. Russell Bershad of Gibbons Real Property & Environmental department has represented the joint venture on the Columbus project since its inception. The Gibbons team has closed $170 million in permanent financing for 70 Columbus, $155 million in construction financing for 90 Columbus and completed a $16 million term loan for the 70 Columbus project. Additionally, Gibbons served as counsel in connection with the ED-5 equity investment component for 90 Columbus.
