Construction Underway on Second Phase of 207 Van Vorst Street in Jersey City

Fields Construction Company, a vertically-integrated, full-service construction management firm, recently announced that construction has commenced on Phase II of 207 Van Vorst Street in Jersey City, New Jersey.

Featuring 153 luxury apartments and 7,305 square feet of retail space, Phase II of 207 Van Vorst Street is the second of two 15-story buildings that are being erected on the site, which is situated adjacent to St. Peter’s Prep high school and within walking distance of NJ Transit’s PATH and light rail lines.

The first building, which is also under construction, features 255 residences and an additional 7,237 square feet of retail space.

“Located in a densely populated section of Jersey City, right next to a school, 207 Van Vorst Street presents the type of construction challenges that we’ve become adept at overcoming,” Fields Construction Principal Jim Caulfield said. “As we look to take on new projects throughout New Jersey, these two buildings will serve as a shining examples of the world-class work that our team produces.”

The project, which is being developed by Fields Development Group, was designed by architectural firm Marchetto Higgins Stieve. McLaren Engineering Group is providing structural engineering design and construction support for the project.

Construction of Phase I is expected to be complete in fall 2017, while Phase II is slated for completion in winter 2018.
