Jersey City Council votes down repeal of Airbnb regulations

Updated 5:38 PM; Today 5:33 PM (8/14/2019)
By Joshua Rosario | The Jersey Journal

The Jersey City Council doesn’t appear to be budging on its support of new short-term rental regulations.

The council Wednesday voted down the introduction of an ordinance to repeal a controversial measure it adopted in June that creates new rules governing short-term rental services like Airbnb. The council voted 7-1 against repealing its June ordinance, despite a petition drive seeking the reversal of the law.

Plan calls for high-rise to replace 75-year-old public housing complex in Jersey City

By Joshua Rosario | The Jersey Journal and Patrick Villanova | The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY – Residents of the Holland Gardens public housing complex could be getting posh new digs under an ambitious plan that calls for the current complex to be redeveloped as a mixed-income high-rise.

The Jersey City Housing Authority proposal calls for at least 500 units to be developed at the current Holland Gardens site near the Hoboken border. Officials contend the project is needed to better integrate the current complex into the surrounding neighborhood, where various residential developments are planned or already completed.

Federal judge tosses Kushner Companies lawsuit over $821 million One Journal Square project

Updated 1:49 PM; Today 1:36 PM (08/08/2019)
By Ron Zeitlinger | The Jersey Journal

A federal judge has dismissed an 11-count lawsuit against Jersey City by the Kushner family’s development firm over the $821 million One Journal Square project that would have brought two residential skyscrapers to the heart of the city.

The 19-page ruling, issued Wednesday, rejected the claims that the city voided the redevelopment agreement with Kushner Companies and its partner, KABR, because of “political animus toward President Trump.” Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law, was CEO of the company until he stepped down to take a position in his father-in-law’s administration.

After decades of talk, road project connecting Downtown to Liberty State Park, Bergen-Laf is underway

Today 2:09 PM (8/7/2019)
By Ron Zeitlinger | The Jersey Journal

A long-planned road project that will connect Downtown Jersey City with Liberty State Park and the Bergen-Lafayette neighborhood is finally underway.

Jersey Avenue, which ends at the Ethel Pesin Footbridge over the Mill Creek in the northwest area of the park, will be extended over the canal and connect to Phillip Street, city officials said.

The total cost of the project — which has been discussed for decades and has been in the planning stages since 2013 — is expected to be $13 million, with the state Department of Transportation paying $10 million of the cost, city officials said. The project is expected to be completed by December 2021.

New restaurant Danforth and Rt 440 plus other observations ….
#16
Home away from home
Home away from home


.

The Eastern King Buffet closed a while ago I guess it couldn’t compete with the popular Hibachi Grill & Supreme Buffet in the Hudson Mall. Renovation work has been going on inside and outside of the building at rt 440 and Danforth (near Wonder Bagel) for a while now. Today two cool looking signs went up for Mamak House. It says Chinese Cuisine. Doesn’t say anything about being a buffet.

History of the property…. back in the day it used to be called Paradise East. Great interior bamboo walls, booths, bar, and nice low lighting. I recall a small fountain too. I can’t remember if they had blow fish lights. It was all sadly ripped out during the buffet craze and a place called Fun Buffet opened which later became Eastern King.

Speaking of cool Polynesian type bamboo interiors and blow fish lighting google Lee’s Hawaiian Islander Lyndhurst. Great place.

** ****

Next to the new UPS Store in the Stadium Plaza area on rt 440 a women’s apparel store called Sayallures Boutique opened. Looks nice and fresh. BTW the employees in the UPS store are the best very helpful.

Pet Land Discount, Kmart, and National Wholesale Liquidators spaces are still empty. Sadly it seems the NWL parking lot has turned into some sort of renegade truck stop with 15 to 20 big rigs parked and idling day and night.

The La Mexicana restaurant which closed and had a For-Lease sign on it may be seeing some action the For-Lease sign is gone. Speaking of ripping out cool looking restaurant interiors (like the PE)… Before La Mexicana the building housed the classic Colonette Diner. Sort of like the Broadway Diner in Bayonne. All the diner interior was gutted to make way for the now defunct La Mexicana “night club”. Maybe it will come back as a diner. Need something in the area with the new NJCU University City across rt 440 and the future Bayfront development next door.

JERSEY CITY — A police precinct that serves the Heights section of the city is due for a total makeover after 118 years.

A new North District police station is planned on Central Avenue between Sherman Place and Hutton Street, across the street from the current one, which was built in 1901, city officials said.

Plans for the new station include a parking deck, which will free up street parking for residents, Jersey City spokeswoman Kimberly Wallace-Scalcione said. Currently, police vehicles are parked on Central Avenue and surrounding streets.

Took me a while but figured it out that is at Pavonia Avenue and Homestead Place. That is the McLaughlin Funeral Home parking lot that sold for $16 million as mentioned in the McLaughlin thread. There are many sewers in the intersection the JSquared construction must have screwed them up.

Growing up the only flooding I remember around Journal Square was more down towards Marion at Westside and Sip. I think it still floods. We would take our bikes down there and ride through it for fun. After our Huffy’ s dried off a bit it was off to Lincoln Park. The lake would over flow its banks and cover the walkway. The game was to maneuver the walkway without going into the lake. Gee would have made some great viral video’s if cell phones and YouTube were around. Talk about jackass stunts. (lol) That is what we did for fun we got outside and explored….no video games for us.

I recall reading or hearing that McLaughlin Funeral Home was offered a boat load of money by KRE Group (headed by Murray Kushner) for their building as KRE was buying up the other properties on the block for their JSquared project but McLaughlin refused the offer.

Looking at an aerial view of the area I wonder if the property will wind up like Vera Coking’s property in Atlantic City in the 1970’s she refused a $1 million ($3.5 million in 2018) offer. The casino developer eventually built around her house.
