Project Description

The New Jersey City University School of Business is located in a 1920’s era 1,000,000 sf former industrial building along the Jersey City Waterfront. The design adapts 52,000 sf of this space, maximizing natural light and the amazing views of Lower Manhattan while allowing for future flexibility. The existing concrete columns and much of the ceilings are exposed, taking advantage of the character of the original architecture. The floors were partially removed at the main entry to create a dramatic, two story lobby with lounge seating, a monumental stair, a donor wall and direct views into the “trading room.” This partial floor demolition occurred with five occupied floors above. An irregular lease area was given for the project and the design sought to rationalize the plan area with a dominant “main street” corridor which accesses all of the public spaces from the main entry lobby. The new spaces feature glass walls, bright colors, dramatic textures and sustainable materials, providing NJCU with a state-of the-art Business School, in the middle of the financial center of the world.

The funding structure of the project required that a design-build team complete the project in only 10-months (design and construction!). The two-story facility features 18 instructional spaces, two data science centers, a simulated trading floor, a lecture hall, offices, study areas, a student lounge, and a large waterfront conference center with stunning views of lower Manhattan.
