Frinjc.. Do you know anything about construction? What about this tells you that it doesn't absorb sound? Nothing. I agree developers cut cost. Hell I'm an interior designer who works on projects like this for a living and I know developers are cheap(No i dont just pick the pillows) but just bc it's wood doesn't tell you the accustical value.

I'm not arguing the merits of this building but don't just say negatives things to be negative.

Kencares... Those two buildings are not comparable.

The hateraid is strong today.

This mentality is so very wrong. I own a car and live in Jersey City. I sometimes have to commute to my office in W.Jersey. Just because I work somewhere that is not easily accessible by public transit means I should move closer to my job and leave Jersey City?


If your living preference has enough of a negative impact on those around you, then yes.


Will you move into NYC when the PATH Trains are no longer sustainable? I mean, really, your response is just silly.

If you like being waken up by your neighbor sneezing in the middle of the night or even dropping a pen then by all means buy into this place. It looks even worse that the condo building I was living in Hoboken in the early millenium and it took me years to readjust after that one.

Another cheapo tinderbox. Those multi unit wood frame buildings should have been banned a long time ago.

I wonder where the parking is going. I suspect underground since from the picture it doesn't look like they have an above ground garage.


parking is the first floor, sunk just a tad below street level. bummer for the neighbors, as it pretty much deadens that whole stretch of block.

also, at a long-ago Harsimus Cove Association meeting, there was talk of a boutique hotel on this block.

I guess condos won the day? there doesn't seem to be any other space for a hotel.

So dumb.


People aren't required to own cars but some people need them. If you don't want to use a spot then rent it and you have another car off the street. The pipe dream of everyone walking or biking everywhere is just that. Believe it or not there are some people in Jersey City who work in west Jersey. If they had figured out a way to move everyone's job closer to their home then we would have very little traffic anywhere. That too is a pipe dream.

At the very least, keep a development like this, on a street like this, parking-free. It's absurd.

So many parking garages all over downtown. Most of which sit empty and create hideous streetscapes. It's ruining downtown. The high rises are one thing, but on a quiet rowhouse street like this, it is a sin and completely out of character.

It just goes against every trend in every other developing city. I don't understand the fascination with adding parking. It's not sustainable. The streets will be terribly clogged with traffic.

I wouldn't care about parking so much as I care about the lack of retail. Why is an area like that still not zoned for mixed use? If all the ground floor of that unit were dedicated to retail, that could be a small supermarket. Or at least a place that sells something people could use. Not a damn parking garage or an overpriced condo or rental.

Does anyone know what's being built in the new construction at 213 -215 Bay Street? The property used to be La Congita's parking lot.
