In Downtown Jersey City sits the area’s latest luxury apartment complex, the Quinn. The 16-story building, in the Paulus Hook neighborhood, sits on the Hudson River waterfront. The project’s developer, Fields Development Group, is also responsible for another luxury complex in Paulus Hook, the Lenox. Sitting across from the Lenox, the Quinn features over 150 residential units with nearly 4,000 feet of ground level retail space.

With a mixture of one, two and three-bedroom options, the Quinn was designed by Marchetto Higgins Stieve Architects. The Hoboken-based firm stays within the NJ-NY area with a number of residential projects under their belt including the Lenox. The architects describe, “Offering views of lower Manhattan, the modest and polished architecture presents separate buildings which are connected by a well thought out pedestrian plaza incorporating amphitheater seating and plenty of trees for shade.”

The building was designed within a few-block radius of the area’s Marin Boulevard Light Rail Station and the Liberty Harbor Ferry Terminal, providing direct access to New York City. In fact, a transit screen was integrated into the Quinn’s elevator lobby to allow residents to check the train schedule as part of the architect’s design intention to produce a “highly efficient, transit-oriented multifamily building.”

One of the building’s most impressive amenities is the rooftop, which provides direct views of Lower Manhattan, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.

The building’s exterior features shared wallspace, where a number of exterior materials were chosen to produce versatility. The façade utilizes 40,000 square feet of Alucobond aluminum composite material in Zinc, Brushed Carbon and Cadet Gray finishes. Alucobond was specified by the architect and produces a modern aesthetic.

The metal composite panels were fabricated by Fairfield Metal who explain, “We have been fabricating panels for about seven years now, so when it comes to standard panels we never run into issues and are always able to fabricate effortlessly beautiful panels.”
