The Colgate Palmolive Company owns eleven city blocks of land in the Exchange Place area of downtown Jersey City, New Jersey. Colgate Palmolive operated manufacturing facilities on their site for more than 150 years. The site is now being redeveloped with more than 6.6 million square feet of commercial and residential buildings, including five 35- to 65-story office towers, twelve 15-story residential buildings, a retail-oriented promenade along the Hudson River and a 250-room first class hotel. A comprehensive multimodal transportation impact study was prepared to gain local redevelopment plan Amendment and Master Plan approvals and a state waterfront Development Permit.
