Developers at odds over future of Jersey City neighborhood

JERSEY CITY — A four-block Downtown Jersey City neighborhood that sits in the shadow of the New Jersey Turnpike Extension is at the center of a tug-of-war between developers with competing plans to transform the area into the city's hottest new residential neighborhood.

Developer Sandy Weiss of Manhattan Building Company has plans to build nearly 900 apartments in the area, but property owners have their own development proposals that the city is looking to halt to make way for Weiss' project. The property owners now face the prospect of having their lots seized via eminent domain as the city argues they've had more than a decade to change the neighborhood and haven't.
