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. 


Mercer Arms has a 99/100 walk score. The PATH, Citi bike stands and the Light Rail are all less than five minutes away.
