National Realty & Development Corp., (NRDC) announced that it is beginning a comprehensive renovation of the façade at Old Colony Square Center.
Old Colony Square Center is a Pathmark-anchored shopping center located at 402 Grand Street in Jersey City, New Jersey.
The shopping center will see enhancements such as, new canopies, columns, exterior lighting, and updated storefronts utilizing fresh and modern neutral tones. Pedestrian access will also be improved with new walkways and crosswalks throughout. Renovations are scheduled to begin early summer 2013 and will be completed by year end.
“By continuing to invest in our properties we enhance the overall shopping experience for our customers and attract new tenants to our shopping centers”, said John Orrico, president at NRDC.
“The fresh new look of Old Colony Square Center has been designed in keeping with the architecture of the surrounding neighborhood. New improvements and additions to the area include new and recently redeveloped brownstones, the opening of the Wilzig Hospital at the Jersey City Medical Center, and the recently opened M.E.T.S. Charter School, specializing in an advanced math, engineering, technology and science curriculum.”
