A new Urby on the block! Creating a neighbourhood with Harrison Urby.
Third Urby residential building developed by concrete opens its doors in Harrison, New Jersey.
Together with Ironstate Development and Pegasus Group, Concrete has completed the first phase of the Harrison Urby project. Offering 409 apartments in phase one and 270 more in phase two, Harrison Urby is the third building developed under the Urby brand that caters to the ever-changing demands of the modern urban citizen. Offering smart apartments at more affordable rates and unique communal facilities and programming, Urby represents unprecedented value for money and a truly connected living experience.
Developed by Concrete and Ironstate to more adequately meet the needs of the modern-day New Yorker, Urby is the first real estate concept that is tailored to fit the neighbourhood and responds to changes in modern urban life. After the first Urby location opened its doors in Staten Island in 2016 and the second complex in Jersey City in 2017, Urby Harrison is now the third location to shake up the New York Area rental market.
Harrison Urby features 409 rental apartments, with a second development stage currently underway. The complex is located just off the Passaic River at a five-minute walk from the PATH station that links residents to New York’s WTC in 20 minutes and to Newark International Airport in 15. In line with the brand philosophy of facilitating connected living, Urby Harrison plays a prominent role in the reinvigoration of this former industrial New Jersey town.

The architectural design of the building pays homage to the neighbourhood’s industrial heritage. At the same time, it reflects the organic nature of the Urby brand, focusing on playfulness, open space and connection. The complex consists of two buildings built around a large communal landscaped garden. Broken down into separate blocks with different facade treatments, window configurations and alternating heights, the buildings have a more intimate appearance than their size would normally dictate. The effect is that of a neighbourhood within a neighbourhood.
Like every Urby building, Harrison Urby has been designed to create natural opportunities for neighbours to meet. At the heart of the complex is the garden that organically connects all communal areas, that include a publicly accessible entrance café, a music recording studio managed by the musician-in-residence, an industrial style gym and a communal kitchen. The communal spaces are actively programmed to further foster interaction between residents and neighbours.
Harrison Urby apartments are available in S, M and L. Compact in size to keep monthly rates down, all apartments feel relatively large and spacious thanks to the clever use of the available square footage, big windows and bright lighting plans. With plenty of built-in storage space, fully equipped kitchens and bathrooms, plus pre-installed Wi-Fi, Urby apartments set a new standard in ready-to-move-in rental housing. The Urby concept and brand have been created by Concrete and Ironstate Development. Concrete is responsible for all of Urby’s design - from the architecture of the buildings to all of its interiors, urban landscape and decoration. MInno and Wasko Architects and Mellilo and Bauer Landscape Architects where the local firms to collaborate with Concrete on the execution design of Harrison Urby.
HARRISON URBY - DESIGN STORY
Harrison is a town located right next to Newark, New Jersey’s largest city of and home to Newark International Airport. Harrison is only a 20-minute PATH subway ride from New York’s WTC. Companies like R.C.A. Radiotubes, Otis Elevators and Edison Light Works (by inventor Thomas A. Edison) were founded in the industrial town of Harrison, once nicknamed ‘the beehive of industry’. In its heyday, the industry of Harrison provided jobs to more than 90.000 people. Over the past decades however, the decline of the manufacturing sector has had a significant impact on the region. But in recent years, Harrison is back on the rise with new residential developments, the Red Bull Arena soccer stadium around the corner and a large-scale renovation and expansion of its PATH station.
In the past few years, Ironstate Development already developed two residential complexes and a Westin Hotel in the area and decided to create an Urby branded Housing scheme in Harrison. Concrete was brought on board to lead the design process, with Minno&Wasko Architects and Mellilo&Bauer Landscape Architects as the local executive firms.
The town of Harrison benefits from great infrastructural connections. It is surrounded on three sides by the Passaic River, with Newark on the opposite shore. To the north lies the Interstate route 280. The national railroad system and PATH subway line run right through the area. After the decline of the industrial sector, the city counsel proposed the Harrison Waterfront Redevelopment Plan in order to transform the city into a vibrant mixed-use town. The plan included a combination of residential, office and commercial activities connected by new and upgraded roads that link directly to the Interstate highway, a waterfront park and a completely renovated and expanded PATH station. With the Red Bull Arena soccer stadium attracting over 30,000 people during weekends, Harrison is rapidly turning into a great place to live and work.
In touch with the neighbourhood
The Urby Harrison site is centrally located and only a block away from the PATH station that takes commuters to New York’s WTC in just 17 minutes and to Newark International Airport in 15 minutes. The area is zoned to become a close-knit neighbourhood with sidewalk cafés, small shops and a pedestrian orientated streetscape surrounded by 4 to 7-storey buildings. The URBY site covers two city blocks, with Somerset Street running from the PATH station splitting the site in two. Instead of creating two enclosed city blocks with inner courtyards, the buildings are designed to form a micro neighbourhood with a series of smaller linked buildings with a large inner courtyard between them that opens up towards the public street. As a result, not just the URBY residents will cross the URBY property and its green lush courtyard, but people walking from the station into the neighbourhood as well.
Architecturally, the buildings are broken down into separate blocks. Different facade treatments, window configurations and alternating heights create diversity and give the large buildings a more intimate appearance. Brick work, corrugated metal, wood cladding and concrete-stone panels are filled with exposed metal, wooden frames and boxes, deeply pushed back windows and exposed parapets. At the same time, all buildings are white, black or silver and have an unmistakably modern character. The first floor corners are reserved for small-scale retail shops, emphasized by awnings and a sidewalk set up. Together with large rusty steel planting areas, the corner shops form an organic transition between the streets and the inside. Urby is proof that a small town neighbourhood does not have to look old fashioned. On the contrary, the area around Urby Harrison is the very definition of a modern day neighbourhood.
The buildings enclose a large inner communal courtyard that is partially accessible to the public. The courtyard is designed as a landscaped garden with multiple areas for activity and relaxation. Drawing inspiration from the steel structure of the old industrial bridges across the Passaic River, a triangular and angled pattern of footpaths provide structure to the garden. Reclaimed brick finishing and rusty steel planters and edges give another nod to Harrison’s rich industrial history. The areas between the paths are filled with wild flower gardens and tall trees, seating, picnic and barbeque areas, a swimming pool with sundeck and a large lawn area.
In the middle of Somerset Street, a freestanding house-shaped building serves as the main entrance to the complex. It’s also a café that is open to both residents and the public with the purpose of creating interaction with the neighbourhood. While one side of the café building houses the entrance, the other side connects Somerset Street to Urby’s communal landscaped courtyard. In the back, the building exits on 2nd Street. Pedestrians and cyclist can follow this route, crossing the Urby communal landscaped area, providing yet more opportunity for interaction between the neighbourhood and Urby residents. Across the garden is another freestanding building with a more industrially referenced roof that houses the gym
Instead of a traditional lobby, Harrison Urby has a café right next to its main entrance, with its very own barista who welcomes residents and visitors with a delicious cup of coffee. The café clearly stands out in a freestanding house-shaped building that creates an instant feeling of coming home. Its shape and soft green facade with a vertical batten are reminiscent of an old farmhouse. Yet with its fully glazed facades facing the street and courtyard, and large window openings scattered around the sides and roof, the Urby Harrison building is a modern interpretation of an intimate home. The café is a collaboration between Urby and Coperaco Coffee, a boutique coffee roaster . Coperaco Coffee’s roasting facility is around the corner from Harrison, providing the local F&B market with high quality coffee. The Urby Coperaco Café is their first autonomously run venue in the US.
The café is open to both the public and the residents, creating a natural connection between Urby and the neighbourhood. It’s the perfect place to start the day or unwind on the way home. The café faces straight down Somerset Street and leads to the communal courtyard in the back. The large house-shaped structure consists of two smaller ‘houses’. As such, it breaks up the space into smaller areas, each with their own look and feel. The front is the entrance to the café area, welcoming you with the aroma of freshly brewed coffee. A marble bar with high tables forms the perfect stop for a quick shot of espresso. The bar runs into a double height grand café. A large communal table, big mirrors and high magazine racks are responsible for a typical Parisian feeling. Towards the back, the double height spaces transforms into a garden room with a 16 ft. tree in the middle and round tables, surrounded by banquet benches. By the large windows facing the garden is a grand piano, waiting to be played by the residence musician or any other aspiring pianist. This is the stage for musical performances and spontaneous jam sessions.
The second house inside the overarching building is a completely wooden structure that houses a living room and a library. The living room comes with large soft couches and seats around a fireplace. With a coffee table stacked with board games, it’s the ultimate hang out for a relaxed evening with the neighbours. The library on the second floor offers countless interesting books, from fiction to art and everything in between. The large reading table with leather-upholstered chairs is the perfect place to read, browse or study, while a large seating corner provides another comfortable spot for quiet reading.
Urby Harrison is built on the concept of fostering interaction between its residents and the neighbourhood. This interaction is facilitated by multiple communal places and activities, both indoors and outdoors, with the large inner courtyard serving as the connecting communal space. Like all communal spaces, the café provides direct access to the garden. The area between the café and the gym consists of terraces and seating areas around three large trees. Café terrace seating, lounge chairs on gravel and picnic tables under string lights create an intimate outdoor extension of the café. The large circular bench around one of the trees plays off the idea of an old town square.
This hardscaped area is linked to a more green and landscaped area. A green border of wild flowers, small trees and vertical green between the buildings and walkways provide privacy for the apartments on the first floor. These apartments come with a small private terrace that leads directly to the garden. Slightly further away from the buildings the garden is filled with triangular rusty steel planters accommodating wild flowers and vertical green. Tucked away benches create cozy hideaways to escape the urban hustle and bustle. The southwest facing east side is dominated by a large swimming pool on a wooden deck with deck chairs. The pool is surrounded by green, giving off the impression of swimming in a lush garden. The adjacent lawn offers plenty of space to lie in the sun, either on the grass or on one of the deck chairs.
Deeper into the garden is a large lawn area for the residents to relax. Whether that means reading a book, playing Frisbee or doing outdoor Yoga. The garden continues with a planter filled with tall vertical green. In the center is a large round wooden bench around a fire pit, perfect for long summer nights with friends or neighbors, or to read a book during the day in a practically closed off outdoor space. Beyond the fire pit, the garden extends towards the far west part of the building where the communal kitchen can be found on the first floor. In front of the kitchen is a large wooden decked terrace with picnic tables under string lights. Surrounded by green and trees, it’s ideal for long communal outdoor dinners prepared in the kitchen or in one of the three outdoor BBQ pits. A bocce court awaits for a relaxing after dinner game. A rubber play area with rubber building blocks, painted streetscape games and an outdoor table tennis and fuss ball table provides entertainment for the young ones.
The communal kitchen is located in the garden diagonally across from the main entrance and café, next to the building’s secondary entrance. The facade is set back form the perimeter, creating a covered porch between the courtyard and the interior spaces. The kitchen is decked out with professional cooking equipment that is organized around a large kitchen table made of wood from chopping blocks. The kitchen area features a communal table, lounge seating along the windows overlooking the courtyard and a table tennis table. The area is designed to feel like your grandmother’s kitchen, with large pans hanging over the stove and wooden shelves and cabinets filled with pots, plates, cookbooks and board games. The double doors opening to the porch and garden provide easy access to the outdoor picnic tables and outdoor grills. The kitchen is actively programmed with cooking classes, food and non-food related events and other communal gatherings. When there is nothing scheduled, everyone is welcome to hang out, read a book or get some work done.
Staying fit without leaving the house
The gym is located at the other end of the garden, opposite the café and terraced area. The gym building is a freestanding double story building with a saw-tooth roof shape, referencing the former industrial character of the Harrison area. A dark green facade and vertical batten cladding with large square openings links the gym with the garden and café. The gym is entered from the garden or through a second entrance via a bridge connection from the second floor to the main building. The gym consists of two large open floors with a void in between. Natural light floods in through skylights. The workout area is set up with the latest cardio equipment, weights and other fitness gear. Hard wooden basketball floors, colored mirrors, benches and colored wooden rings hanging in the voids give the gym a playful character that is typical for Urby.
The gym building has two alleys on both sides for people to exit towards 2nd Street. Behind the gym building the landscaped garden continues with reclaimed brick walkways and wild flowered and vertical green areas. Besides additional seating facilities, this is also the go-to hangout for the resident dogs. In an extensive woofgarden, dogs can run free and play right in the middle of the city.
All together now
Communal life at Urby is actively programmed to encourage interaction and connection between residents and make them feel at home living in Urby. Harrison Urby comes with the in-house musician, Davell Crawford. The New Orleans born and raised singer and pianist will live and work on the property, organizing get-togethers, sessions and music lessons for residents and neighbours. There is a sound studio with instruments and equipment to record songs and create video and music content. The studio is completely midnight blue toned and designed to be a mix between an old fashioned jazz club and a teenage bedroom. Besides this the cafe has a grand piano and a flexible set-up to transform the space into venue for music performances and jazz sessions.
Urby also hosts other communal events, such as book clubs, creative workshops, cooking classes with the inhouse chef from the Urby Staten Island property, outdoor dinners and several gym, yoga and training classes. Other events and programs are organized in collaboration with local people and entrepreneurs to further establish connections between residents and the neighbourhood.
Life made easy
Urby residents have a range of technological innovations as well as other services at their disposal to make their lives easier. For instance, they can choose to receive notifications via the Urby app (in development) when a package has arrived for them, as well as an access code for the locker in which the package is stored. Through the keyless entry system, residents can unlock their doors with their phones or give friends and delivery services temporary access to their apartments.
The main entrance area between the café building and the main residential building leads residents directly to the so-called service zone. The entrance space is designed as a covered alley that connects the street to the courtyard. The reclaimed brickwork floor finish is a continuation from the landscaped courtyard vibe. Pots and planters extend the green feeling from the main entrance onto the street. This space is also the domain of the doorman. From the main entrance area there is a direct passage to the café on one side, and a connection to the leasing offices and residents’ service and elevators on the other. The service zone is an open plan space with green-coated, freestanding mailboxes and package lockers on a wooden floor. With plenty of windows facing the courtyard, the space has an open and outdoorsy feel. Notice boards advertise the building programming and local events. On a mailroom table equipped with office stationary, residents can pack or unwrap packages or their mail. Next to the mailroom table is a large custom-made marble water fountain that provides filtered tap water, saving residents from having to buy – and throw out - tons of plastic bottles. Every resident leaving or entering the building passes by this iconic element, reminiscent of fountains that in the olden days were typically found on central town squares. The elevator lobby can be found in this zone as well, with a large window facing the street. A large mural of magnified bird-feathers by the French-Dutch street artist Adele Renault, as well as the enlarged Mask Chair by South-African artist Porky Hefer provide an outdoor feel and a great place to hang out in.
The writing on the wall
Photographer Ewout Huibers was commissioned to shoot hundreds of number signs from the streets of NYC and Jersey City. The images where compiled in a light box collage to indicate the apartment numbers in the corridors while bringing a sense of urban street life into the building. The elevator banks at the upper floors are decorated with a hand-drawn and especially designed graphic - a collage of industrial elements and icons from Harrison’s rich history.
Smart use of space
All Urby apartments feel larger than they are as a result of smart use of the available space. Despite being compact, the units are built with an optimal flow and spatial balance in mind. Sliding doors between connecting spaces let residents fully open up the apartment and experience its full size and sense of space. All apartments boast windows across the full width of the units. Combined with a straightforward design and use of light colors, the large windows bring daylight and a sense of spaciousness deep into the apartments, while at the same time offering panoramic views.
A new level of turnkey
Urby apartments are constructed in such a way that they’re ready for residents to move in. All spaces are finished with durable materials, including bamboo floors in all areas. The units come with a complete and operational lighting plan that has been specifically designed to match the overall look and feel of the apartments. Bespoke furniture pieces have been installed, such as extra deep windowsills with bookshelves underneath that double as a desk or seat by the window. Window blinds, built-in wardrobes and storage spaces in the bedrooms, as well as fully equipped tailor-made kitchens and bathrooms, including a washer/dryer are ready for immediate use. The apartments also come with pre-installed Wi-Fi, completing the ready-to-move-in package.
Different shapes and sizes
There are a range of different apartments ranging from 400 to 800 sq. ft. The apartments are available in S, M and L; small, medium and large or studio, 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom apartments. The standard S-units are studio apartments measuring approximately 400 sq. ft. While in most studio apartments the only place for the bed is in the living room, the S-units come with a small alcove space in the entrance area that offers enough room for a double bed. As a result, there’s more space in the living room to actually live in, essentially turning the apartment into a 1-bedroom rather than a studio. The 600 to 700 Sq. ft. M-units are set up with sliding doors between areas. When opened, all areas of the apartment are connected, allowing residents to circle the unit around the kitchen block in the middle of the apartment. By removing the vanity from the bathroom and placing it in the hallway that comes with built-in cabinetry with full-length mirrors, the hallway doubles as a dressing area.
As a living brand, all Urby projects are constantly monitored and evaluated for improvements. Based on the ever-changing societal needs, every Urby project is developed taking learnings from previous Urby projects into account. In Harrison, 14 units are all-new M units, with a bedroom facing the window. As a result, the apartments feature a much larger and convenient dressing and vanity area, with even more built-in closet space. The 2-bedroom L-units measure 800 sq. ft. They’re mostly positioned on the corners of the buildings as to make optimal use of the façade perimeter and create 270-degree views. The living room with built-in kitchen is placed right on the corner of the unit, providing stunning views in two directions. Wall-to-wall windows run along both sides of the room. The two bedrooms are situated on both ends of the living room. The sliding doors between the living room and bedrooms are positioned on the window side. So when the doors are open, the windows and sills from the living room extend into the bedrooms, giving off a sensation of abundant space and light.
Prior to going to market, four model room units are available for viewing, each furnished and styled differently. Concrete designed two model rooms. A two-bedroom garden unit on the first floor that is directly connected to the garden. Filled with pots and planters, leafy wallpapers and large nature artworks, the unit links seamlessly with the landscaped courtyard outside. The other modelroom furnished by Concrete one of the 14 new M-units. This unit has a musical theme, designed in black and white, with wooden instruments, books on music and an amazing sound system. The art on the walls by Omar Robbles portray classic ballet dancers in the streets on New York. The Urby brand and concept have been created by Ironstate development in collaboration with Concrete. Concrete is responsible for all of Urby’s design - from the architecture of the building to all of its interiors, landscape design and decoration. The brand language and messaging is designed by ...,Staat Creative Agency.
Conceived with the ever-changing needs of the contemporary urban citizen in mind, Urby is a total and dynamic living experience that provides the perfect haven for those embracing everything the city has to offer.
URBY – THE BRAND
In the past decades, urban life has changed beyond recognition. As a result of shifting values and new technological possibilities, our lives today revolve more around experience than possession. Thanks to technology, we can turn any public space into a mobile office, drive cars without owning them and connect to everyone and everything at any time. Residential development however, is struggling to keep up with the changing demands of the modern city dweller. As rents go up and value for money falls behind, the urban rental offer is rapidly losing its appeal to young potentials and the middle class. That’s where Urby comes in. Built from the ground up with the needs of contemporary urban citizens in mind, Urby is a unique residential concept that offers unprecedented value for money and a truly connected living experience.
Urby stands for competitively priced rental housing with a strong focus on experience and community. The apartments – available in S, M and L – are compact in size, resulting in lower monthly rates. At the same time, they feel larger and more spacious thanks to the clever use of the available square footage and bright lighting plans. Sliding doors between rooms further increase the sense of space, whilst large windows let in abundant daylight and offer panoramic views. With plenty of built-in storage space, lighting, a fully equipped kitchen and bathroom, plus pre-installed Wi-Fi, Urby apartments set a new standard in ready-to-move-in rental housing.
Urby buildings have been designed to create natural opportunities for neighbours to meet and interact. Every building is entered through a publicly accessible, house-shaped entrance café that gives anyone walking through the door an instant feeling of coming home. Once inside, all areas are seamlessly connected. The numerous communal resident spaces include a kitchen, a gym, gardens, a pool and potentially even an urban farm. The communal spaces are actively programmed and can include anything from an in-residence chef who cooks several days a week and offers cooking lessons in the communal kitchen, to an in-house artist who hosts creative workshops or a musician who provides music lessons to the residents. On properties such as Staten Island Urby that feature an urban farm, residents can join the in-house farmer in growing their own vegetables for dinner. Other events and programs are created in collaboration with local people or small businesses. It all depends on the local needs and demographics of the residents. But no matter the local needs, the goal is to foster interaction between the residents and between residents and the neighbourhood.
Being a residential concept for the connected age, Urby has a digital side as well. But one that always serves the analogue purpose of interacting with other residents in real life. Via the Urby app, residents can access the program of the communal activities, enjoy keyless entry to their apartments, and use the smart mail and package systems and a variety of local services. Other amenities include communal bicycles and filtered water stations that serve as natural meeting points and promote the use of tap water over bottled water. The architectural design of the properties reflects the playful and organic nature of the Urby brand, focusing on openness, space and connection resulting in an expressive and progressive architecture. Constantly in motion, tailored to fit the neighborhood and responsive to changes in modern urban life, Urby is the first real estate concept that isn’t set in stone.
URBY – DEVELOPMENT BACKGROUND
Every day, 180,000 people around the world move to the city. And all those people need a place to live. But with rising demand comes rising rent, making it virtually impossible for young potentials and the middle class to find rental housing that is not only affordable, but also caters to the needs of the modern urban citizen. In a time characterized by flexibility, community and sustainability, the available rental housing increasingly fails to meet modern-day demands. And so in 2009, Concrete was approached by Ironstate Development to develop a better rental-housing product for New York’s densely populated areas. ‘Better’ in this context was defined as a product that more adequately meets the needs of the modern urban resident, offers higher value for the money and facilitates a more positive way of living. Concrete and Ironstate teamed up and before long, Urby was born. A unique residential concept that offers premium value at sub-premium rates and a truly connected living experience.
Urby is a holistic housing concept that offers residents much more than living quarters. That said, Concrete started out with focusing on the essence: the apartments. The design team created Small (studio), Medium (one-bedroom) and Large (two-bedroom) units. In order to test functionality, flow and setup, several mock-up apartments were built in a Jersey warehouse. In 2012, Concrete and Ironstate completed a 48-unit building in Jersey City and started renting the apartments out to gauge market response and collect user feedback. Three apartments have been kept on for testing purposes to this day, in order to constantly fine-tune layouts, finishes and fixtures. Meanwhile in 2011, Concrete started working on the Staten Island Urby and the Jersey City Urby projects, applying the learnings from the test building to the first official Urby buildings. In 2016, phase 1 of Staten Island Urby, featuring 571 apartments opened its doors. In the spring of 2017, the first of three Jersey City Urby towers was delivered, containing 762 apartments in a 69-storey building. Meanwhile, back in 2013 the design process of Harrison Urby began.
Jersey City Urby is developed by Ironstate together with the Pegasus Group in the background. The 1st phase of the project consisting of 409 apartments in a 4-storey building has now been completed, while construction has been started on phase 2 containing another 270 units. Development of Stamford Urby, featuring more than 670 apartments is on its way as well and other sites in and around New York are currently under design investigation.
