About this event

The Cove Jersey City is a breakthrough lifestyle community for the twenty-first century driven by science. A global hub for academic and commercial life science, tech, and medical entities, it offers an unrivalled environment for fostering discovery while also building a local ecosystem on the principles of sustainability, health and wellness, and social equity. As the flagship destination for the sciences in New Jersey and the greater New York metropolitan area, The Cove drives economic growth for all.

The Cove is a super-connected live–work–play community just minutes from Manhattan.

Spreading across some 13 acres, the mixed-use live-work-play campus features flexible, state-of-the-art workspaces alongside residences, dynamic amenities, ample green spaces, and expansive parkland on the Hudson River.

It also includes retail, restaurants, and bars, along with easy access to mass transit, rail, ferries, and international airports. It comprises more than 1.4 million square feet of laboratory, technology, and commercial spaces; 1.6 million square feet of residences, and parking.

The Cove will be among the first regenerative, state-of-the-art carbon-neutral neighborhoods designed to leverage reclamation, renewal, and resiliency.

The time is right.

Given the changes of the last decade or even the last year, The Cove demonstrates the opportunity—if not the obligation—to redefine the innovation districts for the twenty-first century.

The Cove creates a single, interconnected network to advance scientific research and build a robust and healthy society. In addition, it creates a strong brand experience and community identity that aids in attracting tenants, recruiting employees, and appealing to residents.

Join us for a day of discussion and exploration.

Based on six transformational pillars that are driving the next generation of innovation communities, The Cove JC is uniquely situated as a gateway between the greater New Jersey and New York regions, the home of the largest concentration of medical centers in the country, in addition to abundant research companies, academic institutions, health systems and international pharmaceutical firms. The area is also home to the largest number of STEM workers in the world.

The Cove demonstrates how private industry, educational institutions, local government agencies, and scientific/community organizations can work together to catalyze community building and economic development, working alongside renowned healthcare and cultural resources to encourage economic growth.

Learn about these exciting developments, network and experience the campus-like environment directly across the river from Manhattan. The event takes place at the beautiful Liberty House, directly in front of The Cove site.
