T.J. Stewart Apartments

Jersey City NJ

With its dramatic brick and terra cotta façade, the T.J. Stewart Apartments in the Harsimus Cove Historic District of Jersey City stands six stories tall and provides 48 units of affordable senior living to the local community. The building features bold red brick with tight lime joints, corbelled decorative banding and parapet, five-brick half-circle pediment window bays, brick bow bay corners, sandstone lintels and sills, wrought iron window cages and decorative terra cotta elements, including horse heads above the two former carriage doors.

The Jersey City Housing Authority, the current owner of the property, embarked upon a project to clean and repair the façade, perform deferred maintenance, secure the parapet, and rebuild the exterior entry stair landing in a more historic appearing finish, so that the building can continue to be a neighborhood landmark well into the future.

Throughout the design and construction period, the local Historic Preservation Commission was consulted to ensure the end product met the specified intents and goals of the project, and all within the appropriate historical context of the District.
