HK Organization unveiled plans for a comprehensive capital improvement plan at 333 Washington St., a loft office building in Jersey City’s Powerhouse Arts District. The multimillion-dollar restoration includes a new lobby and upgrades to all common areas and building systems.
“In a post-COVID world, the trend of people wanting to live near where they work will continue,” said David Dobkin, HK’s director of investments. “Workers will also crave direct access to open space during the workday that will have manageable density. There is no place that includes all of these ingredients better than Jersey City.”
The Newmark team of Daniel Reider and John Crawford of Newmark recently secured two new tenants for 333 Washington St. PuppySpot, an online marketplace for responsible breeders, leased 11,349 square feet on the third floor. In addition, a notable e-commerce haircare company leased 2,061 square feet on the second floor and has recently moved in.
