JERSEY CITY-Sawa Steakhouse & Sushi Bar has signed a lease for 3,800 sf at Gull’s Cove, Metro Homes’ new mixed-use project here. The location will be the third for the Eatontown-based Sawa, which has eateries there and at Pier Village in Long Branch. Terms of the lease were not disclosed.

“Jersey City is an up-and-coming place to be,” says Anne Wagar, Sawa’s managing partner. “Gull’s Cover lends itself to fine dining and take-out for singles, couples and families.”

Sawa Steakhouse & Sushi Bar will open as part of the first phase of Gull’s Cover, located in this city’s Downtown area at 205 Luis Munoz Marin Blvd., overlooking Liberty Harbor and Lower Manhattan. Phase one will include a 16-story condo tower of 321 residences, and Gull’s Cove will build out to a total of 432 residences and 30,000 sf of ground-floor retail space. Gull’s Cove itself is part of the larger 80-acre Liberty Harbor North Redevelopment District.

“Sawa is a good fit for Gull’s Cove,” says Dean Geibel, managing partner of the Hoboken-based Metro Homes. “It will attract an upscale customer base and will provide another amenity for our residents.”
