perhaps the state should use a part of super high taxes on legal marijuana to reduce its unfunded pension liability.

Developer breaks ground on 309-unit project in Jersey City's Lafayette section
Updated 3:08 PM; Posted 3:01 PM

By Ron Zeitlinger The Jersey Journal

Ironstate Development Company, known for its Downtown Jersey City projects, broke ground this week on a mixed-use building in the Lafayette neighborhood.

The $84 million project, undertaken with joint venture partners Brookfield Property Group and Landmark Developers, is expected to include 309 residential units, 3,800 square feet of street-level retail space and 8,000 square feet of commercial space that will serve as the new headquarters for the Jersey City Redevelopment Agency.

The planned five-story building, at 100 Monitor Street, will occupy a now-vacant 2.7-acre site near the Liberty State Park Hudson-Bergen Light Rail Station and within walking distance of the Liberty Science Center and Liberty State Park.

true, but, imo, the facts they priced this thing at $2.4 million suggests that the sky is not falling as some had predicted. even if they take $1.5/$1.8 million, i would not consider that a disaster.Quote:

i think fulop and his team could learn something from hoboken in terms of pushing back against developers and getting better development deals for the city. i'm all in favor of smart, dense development but some of those behemoths they are building downtown clearly are out of character with their surroundings.

Leasing Caven Point would be disaster; Area should remain natural | Feedback

Caven Point a critical natural habitat

I have just written the NJ Department of Environmental Protection to implore the Office of Leases to keep Caven Point (in Liberty State Park) as a natural wilderness area. It would be disastrous to lease it to Liberty National Golf Course for any length of time. Currently managed as protected wildlife habitat, Caven Point includes one of the last relatively undisturbed marsh areas of the Hudson River Estuary and a long natural beach.

Being off limits to people (and their dogs) from March 1 through September, the Point provides critical and unique habitat for wildlife in the area because it is relatively undisturbed. These existing benefits, which will get only more valuable as time passes, need to be factored into any land-use planning for the area.

I looked at this building with a potential buyer and my PE a few years back. It was a leaning tower then but fully occupied. If I recall correctly, this was one of two buildings sharing a common party wall. The owners of the buildings could not get their act together. In any event, at least then, the owner I met was a greedy bastard and the asking price was far too high for the project to make any sense given the height restrictions for the lot and the aforementioned issues with the party wall. Guess it never did sell after all.

my point is that imo plenty of the bland towers going up in jersey city are ugly too. at least, this ugly building breaks the mold a bit. and as i said, it is MY OPINION. some may find the towers as well as 485 marin exciting and uplifting.Quote:

Talk about cutting the nose to spite the face. Favoring an ugly building over a traditional (or, boring) one seems like an odd stand.

I am with the others. I have watched this building go up and it always struck me as oddly out of place: too large for its location, aesthetically it clashes with its surrounding, and the design itself is not at all visually pleasant. Complete and total FAIL.

I have to ask: have you ever actually stepped foot in BL? Because if you have done so recently, you should have noticed all the young professionals living in the area, the nice cars parked on some streets, along with new developments, some of them of substantial size.
