Harrison Commons

Harrison, NJ
Harrison Commons is a vibrant mixed use environment which includes the reuse of existing factory buildings as residential structures and new multi-family housing.

Torti Gallas developed a comprehensive plan for the revitalization of the Passaic River Waterfront in Harrison, New Jersey.  The plan created a mixed use environment which included the reuse of existing factory buildings as residential structures and the created new multi-family housing.  A 2,500 car commuter parking garage adjacent to an existing PATH commuter rail station is lined with loft style residential units above convenience retail.  Public green spaces adorn the plan signifying the major connection from Rogers Boulevard to the Passaic River.  

The plan connects two distinct commercial centers (Downtown Harrison to the north and the Ironbound Neighborhood of Newark to the south) by reweaving the city grid through the area and focusing commercial activity along Rogers Boulevard, the connecting ligament.
