Re: Gulls Cove Light rail side

I live on the 7th floor and have a view of the station albeit set back a bit. Noise isn't a factor when the windows are closed. In the warmer months when we sleep with the windows open, even then noise is pretty manageable. We moved here a few years ago from midtown Manhattan, which was noisy and polluted. No complaints on our end at GC.

Considering what BPC and TriBeCa are trading at (north of 2K/sq ft) as well as LIC and the nicer parts of Bk (both north of 1K/sq ft), this is a bargain. Remember this newish building is close to a major airport, atop a light rail station, walking distance to the path, 10 mins from Fidi, and near 2 ferry stops. Crowning detail? This bldg is zoned for PS16, which now rates a 9/10 on greatschools. That makes it comparable to a decent suburban school, and provides a floor on pricing. Doesn't get much better. Oh and the building suffered no harm during sandy.

This thread raises some valid trends but is also missing a trend.

The folks moving to JC today frequently prefer urban living to suburban living, especially given the different types of work we do compared to 30-40 years ago that require longer hours, shorter commutes, quick access, more flexibility and creativity, and virtual work schedules.

Will the majority of folks hightail it to the burbs after a set time? Yes, always, because that's where the more sought after schools are located. But many choose to stay for the same reason that they choose to remain in Brooklyn or Queens -- proximity, diversity, short commutes, architectural variety, various other educational enrichment options. Frequently it's people with money who can buy private education or otherwise fund enrichment programs for their kids privately.

PS 16 is a crowded school in part because it has been able to bounce back quicker. PS's 37 and 5 are, anecdotally speaking, following suit as those feeder areas gentrify.

As with many things in life, follow the money.

Yes, I wouldn't sweat the OP's post to much. It's a clear case of "internet muscles" at work. I'm reminded of Time Magazine's Joel Stein who penned an article expressing feelings similar to what the OP expressed. Look him up on Wikipedia.

Chicago is about to get its first one:

Chicago shared street


A great concept, but a very risky bet given the general douchiness of the average NJ driver. Just the other day, this guy slowly ran a red light at Grove and York while I had the green heading north on Grove.

And it's not the first time. One time I was at a HBLR light in Hoboken ahead of Paterson Plank. And this driver passed me, paused at the tracks, and proceeded to run the pair of red lights.

It's like NJ drivers shed their IQ by 50-75% every time they get behind the wheel.

Bubble is already bursting, but you won't read about it for another 12-18 months when brokers want to use 'bargain' prices to lure buyers back in.

Units in new buildings just aren't selling - just go to those few new buildings downtown and ask how many units have sold and you'll see what I mean. And gold coast buildings that have been on the market for awhile - just saw an ad for in Weehawken - are now slashing prices and offering incentives.

Prices peaked over the winter between 2014 & 2015. Sales are falling off a cliff and prices are now following - prices were unaffordable for anyone who doesn't earn several hundred thousand a year, and those folks would all rather rent in brooklyn or manhattan than buy in JC.

Asking prices peaked above $700/sf, now they're down to around $600/sf, even with the low supply. Look for those to fall further to around $500/sf as investors freak out and want to cash out before they lose an opportunity to make a profit.

As for the Crystal Pointe sale, nothing shows nervousness like a need to advertise sales. This is looking like 2006-2007 all over again. Anyone remember that fool who paid a $2.3 mil for the penthouse in the Beacon back then? Talk about bad bets!

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/02/11/rea ... tions%2FNew%20Jersey&_r=0

Quote from Feb 2007 article:

"Last week, a two-story penthouse at the Beacon, the former Jersey City Medical Center complex that is being converted to condominiums, set a record for a high-rise apartment in Jersey City when a purchase contract was signed for $2.3 million.
[...[
Most Liberty Terrace units were sold by September, though, said Ms. Urgo — and she sees the market for expensive condos with riverfront views as having picked up significantly since then."

We are in a massive asset bubble right now, driven by a super-long period of record-low interest rates. People couldn't get a halfway decent return putting money into savings accounts or bonds, so they invested in stocks, startups, & multifamily properties, and individual condos and townhomes.


You can't compare Weehawken to DTJC. They're completely different markets. And which DTJC properties are you referencing?

The deal broker lives in my building. It's still cheaper to buy DTJC waterfront realty than across the river, which is trading for 2X this price point in most cases. Until we can establish that Manhattan is in a bubble, it's hard to logically say that DTJC is in a bubble. There's not a lot of debt pumping up prices now. It's a lot of cash deals and foreign money.

Do we know whether the JC location scheduled to close? They're not liquidating, just reorganizing under Chap. 11. Given the high prices at that location, I should think it's a big money earner for the company.

2015’s Best & Worst Cities for Recreation

WALLETHUB - by Richie Bernardo

To highlight the benefits of public spaces and recreational activities to consumers and the local economy, WalletHub compared the 100 largest U.S. cities across 27 key metrics. In each city, we examined basic costs, the quality of parks, the accessibility of entertainment and recreational facilities as well as the climate.

@JCDevil @Jaded8695 @Maise

Thanks for the information - again very helpful! I'm going to rule out 50 Regent. I checked out in Paulus Hook as well, but its out of my price range currently. As for 18 Park, I fell in love with the place, but was very concerned about the south-facing units that are facing the new condo construction site. Was the noise pretty unbearable? That's not a good sign if it indicates that the walls are really thin.

I'm considering units in Gulls Cove, and while they face the Light Rail, I'd hope they'd be less disturbing than 18 Park. Maybe they have better insulation?

Does anyone have any insight into the quality of Toll Brothers apartments? I know the company has just started entering into this market, wanted to see how they were doing reputation-wise.


I live in Gulls Cove, which is a condo building. Most units are owner-occupied, but some are available for rent by owner. Construction quality is decent. You don't hear any construction noise from the other side of 18Park and the noise from the light rail is negligible. Units are on average much larger than at 18Park because it's a condo unit that was finished in 2008-09, when land prices were lower.

Where Gulls Cove falls short is on amenities. It has a doorman, a gym, a small common area on the ground/1st floor, and a landscaped courtyard. But no pool, indoor common room, community room/party facility, or kiddie playroom. 18Park has all of those.

Those numbers are in the ordinance, but there is never any hard proof when I ask.


Again with the parking. You'll be surprised how many of those folks take transit from near and far. I'm a former JPM worker btw. Relocated to JC and moved here as well from manhattan as I saw the obvious real estate possibilities. Also, I'm a US citizen who won't meet your visual of one.

Certainly that means the millionaires can buy fewer gold plated iWatches and may have only four or five homes instead of nine or ten, but for the average worker, the quality of life is higher. Damn right unionized workers are going to fight to maintain that standard of living and they have every right to do it.

For many of use those breadcrumbs as you call them can be quite substantial. More so than the average person's take in France. France, and much of Europe, are great places to be B-team. Society will take care of you. Just don't bother being an A. For that there's London and the US.

JERSEY CITY — When Gull's Cove, the first high-rise development in Jersey City's Liberty Harbor North area, began selling units in 2007, its developer heralded his "one-of-a-kind" building and declared its sales program "a sensational success."

"We are thrilled about the attention Gull's Cove is receiving," developer Dean Geibel said then of the planned two-building, 431-unit development.

Eight years later, some Gull's Cove residents are less than thrilled. The second building has yet to be constructed. Meanwhile, Geibel remains in control of the homeowner's board, with residents saying they're given no voice to make changes they say are badly needed.
