The Jersey City Urby is the first of three planned residential towers that is completed. The layout of the tower revolves around a very efficient core with elevators and stairs in the heart, and 12 apartments per floor wrapped around the centre. By extending some of the floors, the dimensions and nature of the apartments vary. The cantilevering floors form striking blocks in the building's architecture, creating towers that look as if they were built by a child with wooden blocks. These protruding blocks have an uneven amount of floors in order to avoid any type of repetition in stacking. Three different colour tones further increase the playfulness. The crown of the building consists of a steel structure filled with a steel mesh curtain hiding the mechanicals and elevator overruns. The crown is illuminated at night with an intensity that differs and changes in relation to the level of activity in the building: the more people are at home, the brighter the light shines into the night.
