Built in 1856, 46 Mercer was one of the first homes constructed in the newly formed Jersey City, even predating City Hall by 40 years.
Taking care to honor its 164 year history, we’ve restored 46 Mercer to its original purpose– being a home. Each of the seven bespoke three bedroom, two bath apartments at 46 is unique and flawlessly blends historic charm with the modern amenities you’ve come to expect.
The 47 Mercer Story
47 Mercer was constructed in 1910 shortly after City Hall was finished and was built to support a growing upper class in Jersey City.
Designed as a classic Five-Story New York Style apartment house, it served 20 families faithfully until around 1950 when the max exodus to the suburbs began.
To combat low occupancy, the city briefly proposed turning the building into low-income housing in the 1960s. However, this proposal was blocked by the neighborhood and instead 47 Mercer sat abandoned for many decades.
As part of a city-sponsored downtown revitalization effort in the late 1990s, we were offered the opportunity to restore 47 Mercer to its intended use- quality housing.
