City of Jersey City
Mr. Donald E. Henry Jr.
The Jersey City Municipal Services complex was a collaborative effort in planning, design, permitting and construction that transformed a former industrial site into a multi-building complex, reconciling the conflict between intense manufacturing uses, the surrounding rail lines and highways, and the City’s desired “Green Gateway to Jersey City.”
The complex supports multiple city agencies, with space for offices, hearings, vehicle repair, recycling, emergency services, material staging and parking. Three main buildings anchor distinct site regions: internal and external forces generate the irregular geometries with massing that responds to functions within.
