Pop Up Jackson Hill is a venture that creates a temporary pop up venue by converting four shipping containers into a community centered retail and art hub. Pop Up Jackson Hill will serve as an entrepreneur incubator for small business owners and provide no cost storefronts in a formerly empty lot across from the newly built City Hall Annex. The project was created in partnership with the Jackson Hill Main Street Management Corporation, the City of Jersey City (Office of the Mayor, Department of Administration, Department of Public Works), the Municipal Utilities Authority, and the Jersey City Redevelopment Agency.
Alongside the shopping, food and entertainment will contribute to the efforts of Pop Up Jackson Hill. Carolyn's Soul Food (76 Orient Avenue) will install a barbecue smoker and grill so that patrons can sit at onsite picnic tables and enjoy a meal while they shop. Local food trucks will also enhance food options.
