    The 46 Mercer Story

    In 1856, when 46 Mercer was built, Jersey City was still forming. In fact, City Hall (which can be seen from 46 Mercer’s stoop) wasn’t finished until 40 years later in 1896.

    Although originally designed as a personal row home, over its 164 year history 46 Mercer has served in a variety of community roles.

    1908 – It was converted to a maternity clinic. It would serve the women and families of Jersey City for the next 40 years.

    1948 – The Democratic Party of Jersey City acquired the building for use as as their headquarters.

    1985 – Eventually the city took ownership and converted it to a welfare office.

    By the end of the 90’s, like much of downtown Jersey City, it was boarded up and abandoned.

    However, as part of a city-sponsored downtown revitalization effort,

     we were offered the opportunity to restore 46 Mercer and bring it full circle to its original use- quality housing.

    Taking care to honor 46’s history by preserving historic details, we’ve created seven bespoke three bedroom, two bath apartments. Each unique apartment flawlessly blends historic charm with the modern amenities you’ve come to expect.
