Announcing the Nimbus Arts Center at the Lively!
321 Warren Street
Jersey City, NJ
Opening early 2020
Nimbus Dance announces a permanent new home located at 321 Warren Street in Jersey City’s Powerhouse Arts District. Slated to open in early 2020, the Nimbus Arts Center at the Lively will be a 15,500 sq. ft. multi-arts facility on the ground floors of the building, with apartments above, representing one of the most significant investments in the arts in Jersey City history. The comprehensive arts center will include a 150-seat black box theater, studio and rehearsal space for Nimbus’ Company and School, and company administrative offices. The center will be fully ADA accessible to audiences and artists alike.
Envisioned as a meeting point for artists of all genres, ages, and backgrounds, the Nimbus Arts Center also will house new partnerships: Nimbus and St. Peter’s University will join together to explore new initiatives in delivering arts education. Pro Arts Jersey City will be the resident visual arts organization at the center, presenting a rotating calendar of art exhibitions, events, and professional development sessions.
This development project by Lennar Multifamily pays heed to the history and artistic identity of the Powerhouse Arts District, designated as an arts district in the early 2000s when artists worked out of many of the area’s warehouse buildings, including the now-demolished 111 1st Street. The theater and lobby portions of the Nimbus Arts Center will be provided by Lennar Multifamily as part of an agreement brokered by the Jersey City government and spearheaded by former Councilwoman Candice Osborne.
Nimbus has launched a Capital Campaign to raise funds for theater outfitting costs and interior construction of the 2nd floor. Michael DeMarco, CEO of Mack-Cali Realty Corporation, is co-chair of the Capital Campaign committee.
