Jersey City Mayor Bret Schundler, joined by Governor Whitman, national and local political and civic leaders, and officials from the Lefrak Organization, will welcome Chase Manhattan Bank to its new offices at Newport, the 600-acre $10 billion multi-use waterfront community located in downtown Jersey City.

"We welcome members of the Chase Manhattan family to Jersey City. This move is just one more example of the growing popularity of Jersey City's financial center. Our City is the shining star in New Jersey and I am proud that Chase chose to make it their home," Mayor Schundler said.

Offering dramatic views of the Manhattan skyline, Newport Office Centers V and VI are 22 stories and 12 stories respectively with column free space featuring granite and glass curtain wall facades, and marble and granite lobbies. 1900 Chase employees will enjoy the benefits of a childcare center, a fitness center, 24 hour/7 days per week security and ample parking for commuting employees. The Bank is expected to move in January, 2002.
