This 3-family brownstone in the Hamilton Park neighborhood of Jersey City was originally built in 1864 on a spread footing foundation. In addition to restoring the facade and fully modernizing the interiors, Shuster built and integrated an additional structure using a pile foundation that extended the depth of the building from 40 to 60 feet. The three units (of approximately 1500, 1300, and 1000 sq. ft.) sold as condos. This project is one of several examples highlighting Shuster's ability to blend the best of traditional aesthetics and old-world craftsmanship with modern technologies and conveniences.
