Urby’s numerous communal resident spaces include a kitchen, a gym, gardens, and a pool. The communal spaces are actively programmed and can include anything from an in-residence chef who offers cooking lessons in the communal kitchen, to a musician who provides music lessons to the residents. After seeing everything that Urby has to offer, who’s ready to move to Jersey City?
Urby stands for competitively priced rental housing with a strong focus on experience and community. The apartments are compact in size, resulting in lower monthly rates. At the same time, they feel larger and more spacious thanks to the clever use of the available square footage and bright lighting plans. Sliding doors between rooms further increase the sense of space, whilst large windows let in abundant daylight and offer panoramic views. With plenty of built-in storage space, lighting, a fully equipped kitchen and bathroom, plus pre-installed Wi-Fi, Urby apartments set a new standard in ready-to-move-in rental housing.
Urby’s design puts emphasis on interaction between residents and between residents and the surrounding neighborhood. Instead of a traditional lobby, Jersey City Urby has an entrance café with its own barista who welcomes residents and visitors alike. The café, 9BAR, a local coffee shop, is surrounded by a variety of seating options, from communal tables to a cozy living room area. From the moment you step in the door, Urby is made to feel like home.
Built from the ground up with the needs of contemporary urban citizens in mind, Urby is a unique residential concept that offers unprecedented value for money and a truly connected living experience. Rich in communal amenities, digital system integration, and quality apartments, Urby offers a holistic, state-of-the-art residence for today’s city dweller.

How will mobility enhance or otherwise change everyday work flow? Mobility strategies for the workplace can mean different things for different organizations. For some companies, supporting mobility is a way to reduce real estate costs. For other companies, mobility is part of a broader strategy to support employee flexibility.
The biggest factor in a mobility strategy is understanding the population at hand. What are the key work modes and work styles of your employee base? What kind of individual work or team collaboration takes place throughout the day or week? What spaces in the office (if at all) does your employee base use on a daily basis? How much of your staff works (or can work) remotely, and how much of your staff is required to be in the office for face-to-face work? Ultimately: In what ways can work happen away from the boundaries of the workstation or office?

The goal for the Water Garden revitalization was to create a campus that provides the amenities and environments that culturally resonate with today’s tech tenant. New recreation areas, a pedestrian path, and the sculpted landscape creates opportunities for passive exercise, outdoor events, and supports active design and sustainable practices.
One of the main focuses of the refresh of the Water Garden was to promote sustainable use of water resources. By reducing the lake and replacing water-intensive plants with drought-tolerant, California native plants, this corporate campus was able to cut down on expensive and wasteful irrigation. The Water Garden achieved a perfect score for their LEED GOLD Recertification.
