“The Jersey City waterfront is home to some of the highest quality commercial real estate in New Jersey.

Features also entail a substantial branding/signage opportunity for tenants, exceptional power over 12 watts per square foot, full-building redundant power with three 2,000kW backup generators, a seven-story parking garage with over 1,000 covered spaces and a new Whole Foods Market as the ground floor retail tenant.
“AEP has gained a strong reputation for delivering high-quality spaces in top-tier assets, as evidenced by their portfolio and recent activity throughout New Jersey over the past several years, and the acquisition of Harborside 6 further solidifies their prowess,” said Drummond. “With some of the most iconic assets in the state, the Jersey City office market offers exceptional neighborhood offerings and proximity to Manhattan. We look forward to finding a compatible tenant occupying the once-in-a-lifetime space.”
