The 800 Harbor project marks the largest deployment of SlenderWall panels in the product’s 27-year history. Even with its lightweight features, SlenderWall panels are tested to withstand 226-mph winds. SlenderWall also plays a significant role in the energy efficiency of the project.

Smith-Midland Corporation, a PCI Mid-Atlantic Producer Member, recently announced they were selected to manufacture and install their SlenderWall envelope system for the new 800 Harbor Boulevard project at Lincoln Harbor in Weehawken, NJ.

The expansive luxury residential waterfront apartment building will incorporate over 157,000 square feet of white acid-etch finished SlenderWall panels.

Partners for the 800 Harbor project include architects Marchetto Higgins Stieve, owner/developer Hartz Mountain Industries, Inc. and general contractor Katerra.

Smith-Midland Corporation develops, manufactures and sells a broad array of precast concrete products for use primarily in the construction, transportation and utilities industries. Smith-Midland Corporation has 3 manufacturing facilities in Midland, VA, Reidsville, NC and Columbia, SC.

Easi-Set Worldwide, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Smith-Midland Corporation, licenses the production and sale of Easi-Set products, including SlenderWall.

ABOUT SLENDERWALL
SlenderWall, an Easi-Set Worldwide licensed product, is a unique composite cladding system that is 66% lighter than traditional 6” thick precast. This is achieved by integrating a galvanized interior steel stud frame with a 2” thick precast concrete panel.

Even with its lightweight features, SlenderWall panels are tested to withstand 226-mph winds. Each panel on the project will have its stud wall cavity filled with 3.5” of factory-applied closed-cell foam insulation to achieve an R-24 thermal rating. SlenderWall plays a significant role in the energy efficiency of the project.

PROJECT OVERVIEW
The 800 Harbor project marks the largest deployment of SlenderWall panels in the product’s 27-year history. Smith-Midland previously worked with Marchetto Higgins Stieve on the Port Imperial, NJ Nine on the Hudson multi-family project which opened in 2018.

The 800 Harbor building is phase one of an over $375,000,000 Hartz Mountain development project that will include residential, retail, office, hotel and recreation facilities. These new projects will complement the already thriving redevelopment of Lincoln Harbor that first opened in 2014.

Lincoln Harbor sits on 60 acres of prime waterfront land with dramatic, panoramic views of midtown Manhattan with direct ferry and rail service located on premises.

Hartz Mountain Industries is one of the largest private owners of commercial real estate in the United States. They own and operate a portfolio of more than 250 buildings primarily in the New York/Northern New Jersey area, representing more than 38-million square feet of residential, office, hotel and industrial properties.
