Jordan Gruzen receives Jersey City Legend Award
DateJune 3, 2014
JERSEY CITY, NJ – Jordan Gruzen, internationally renowned architect in our New York City office, has been honoured with a Jersey City Legend Award.
The award is given to an individual who has achieved a lifetime of civic accomplishment and who encompasses the historical spirit and legacy of Jersey City, New Jersey, located east of Newark.
Gruzen has carried on the architectural legacy of the Jersey City firm of Kelly & Gruzen, founded in 1936 by B. Sumner Gruzen and Col. Hugh A. Kelly at 26 Journal Square.
Born at the Margaret Hague Maternity Hospital and raised on Stegman Parkway in the Greenville section of Jersey City, Gruzen has continued to contribute to the city’s dynamic built form through the successor firm of Gruzen Samton, architects of Crystal Point, Liberty Towers, Portside, and other seminal waterfront buildings. Gruzen Samton was acquired by IBI Group in 2009.
The award was handed out last week by the Jersey City Landmarks Conservancy, a non-profit organization, during its 14th annual ceremony marking National Preservation Month.
