I don't like sidewalks filled with parking garages either, and this WF design is an excellent example of how to do it right.


I'm not opposed to the WF having its own parking lot, or to parking lots in general. How could I!? I own too many vehicles to not rely on lots.

My point is that there are two lots right across from this WF location (one closer than the other) and anyone coming to this WF location with a car could park at one of those two lots. Whole Foods could make this easy for people with cars by validating their tickets. They do this in other cities around the country. They do not need to have their own lot. At all.

I have no idea about the parking situation in 50 columbus but I can say that every time I have parked in the grove path building you have to go almost to the roof to get a spot.... not sure where these rumors of it being unused come from.

perhaps at night its different but 9-5 working days it is pretty packed in there from my perspective

I'm surprised no one has chimed in about the FIVE LEVELS of parking integrated into the building. That's a parking lot across from another (the one at 50 Columbus, which is usually mostly empty) and across the street diagonally from another parking lot (the one at Grove Pointe) that is usually somewhat empty, as well. I thought we were trying to move away from the idea of reliance on cars and towards more pedestrian friendly concepts.

In any case, I think it also speaks volumes that neither the Planning Board, nor Traffic Department, seem to think that traffic in the area is already a chaotic mess. WTF?


Normally I would agree with you, but this is a grocery store.

Do you intend to see folks walking across those major roadways with shopping bags in tow or pushing their carts to these other lots and then returning those same carts to the store?


Um, yes? It's a dense as hell city and this location is on top of a subway station. There is no need for parking, especially with other (empty) garages on the same block.

How much parking is allotted for the Trader Joe's in Brooklyn Heights? That's a neighborhood with similar density and similar % of car ownership to DTJC.


You need to escape your bubble and realize that most people need cars, especially when going to the grocery store.

No chance in hell to get any kind of major grocer in DTJC without plenty of parking.


How do we know this was really up to the city? Perhaps planners did want to shelve parking or severely restrict it, but Whole Foods is very, very picky and has strict requirements for the places they pick. For example, the WF in Gowanus is relatively new and encircled by a huge surface level parking lot and that area has a comparable density to DTJC.

If WF pushes back against parking restrictions and walks, the city doesn't get its high end grocer and you still have a populous clamoring for better grocery options.

Personally, while I don't like all the extra parking, I don't mind it so much if it's well hidden and NOT on the ground floor, so we can still have an engaging commercial space. Too many projects have gone up with parking smack on the ground floor, forever eliminating the chance to have useful retail or something else there.

I wonder when, if ever, Jersey City will realize that it's a city and start behaving that way, instead of constantly shoehorning itself into a car-first midwestern satellite city-suburb.

I do love creative architectural dreaming, but this idea is one of the most ludicrous I've ever read:

"One major obstacle of this walkway is that it dissects the existing eastern tower. In an effort to avoid walking around the building, the architect proposed having the walkway cut through the middle of the building by demolishing the current lobby. Pedestrians on the path could then walk right through the building."

And, not that it matters, but this presentation and several others have referred to the Metropolis Towers site as the first urban renewal project of its type. New York, Chicago and probably other cities had projects that pre-dated this one. Again, nobody cares except me.

I didn't get as far as 24:10, but this is a pretty interesting presentation (okay "interesting" in a nerdy way), and it's a great lesson for a lot of newcomers on what JC was like just a short time ago. Remember when the Morris Canal basin was littered with abandoned barges??

We've also got the Sunac Natural Market coming in at 70 Columbus and (hopefully) 99 Ranch is still planned to open up where the Pathmark was.

I really hope this summer brings an end to downtown being a grocery desert for those that don't own a car.


Like many here, I am anxiously anticipating the opening of 99 Ranch since I live in the area- so much so that I sent them an e-mail inquiring about their opening date as their website indicates a summer opening. They replied (quite quickly too) that they anticipate a February 2017 opening. What could possibly be taking them so long?!

I've lived in Metropolis towers for six years. They certainly could use a renovation!

Hope what you want - it's a co-op. The idea that the shareholders would be willing to be homeless for a decade while they completely redevelop the site is absurd, no matter what sort of money they'd be making. Getting rid of the parking lot and replacing it with a garage and ground floor retail is the best we could hope for, and having a Whole Foods be part of it is even better than what we could have reasonably hoped for.


I was not advocating for the demolition of the Metropolis towers, silly. More so for development of the excessive surface parking surrounding the building. Why not have residential and offices uses rising above the Whole Foods site? Why does it have to be a single use with a parking garage.

If I was a member of the co-op, I would be jumping at this opportunity due to the potential to generate millions for the co-op off the land lease to pay for renovations\upgrades of the existing common areas and possibly reduce assessments for years to come.

As a resident of Jersey City, that's always been a odd site which kills the urban feel of the area. From the outside, it looks like a public housing complex. A little greenspace and improvements would go a long way into better integrating the towers with the city. Are the co-op owners that crusty to want to have their buildings sit in a sea of parking rather than see development? Serious question.

Maybe the entrance for cars will be off Montgomery and people off Columbus, that might make the most sense.

It was looking at plans Tommy had a while back, could be mine is old and yours is new. I don't think the corner has enough room for 45,000 sq feet and the park they show/talked about. Seems like it has to be in the lot between them to the North side, but I suppose it could be facing Montgomery. IMO, that would be a bit of a mistake, you want the store facing the majority of the foot traffic, and the foot traffic is driven by the PATH & the plaza.

Edit: At the time they had plans for a connecting street/walkway between Columbus and Montgomery.

The NJ.com article states that this Whole Foods will be at the corner of "Marin and Columbus, which is not even really possible. As of now, the hulking monstrosity of a co-op tower is situated near the Marin/Columbus corner of the property. There is no way a 45k SF supermarket is fitting in that corner. So, the Whole Foods has to be going directly across Columbus from 70 Columbus, between the two Motropolis Towers, or at the corner of Marin and Montgomery.


It's going between the towers, which is a big parking lot at the moment, it's pretty damn close the intersection. I would expect there to be an entrance very near the corner of Columbus and Marin, and likely one on Montgomery as well.

Resized Image



Interesting. Do you recall what your source is for the exact location? A while back I spoke with a rep for the developers and he told me that a "high end" supermarket (before it was confirmed to be WF) would be going in at the Montgomery/Marin corner of the property and that a new city street connecting Montgomery and Columbus was to be opened in the space between the existing towers.

These plans obviously could have changed. To me, it is crucial that a connection be opened up connecting Montgomery and Columbus between Marin and Warren. Hopefully, they still plan on doing that, even if it's just via a parking lot with an entrance from Montgomery.

The NJ.com article states that this Whole Foods will be at the corner of "Marin and Columbus, which is not even really possible. As of now, the hulking monstrosity of a co-op tower is situated near the Marin/Columbus corner of the property. There is no way a 45k SF supermarket is fitting in that corner. So, the Whole Foods has to be going directly across Columbus from 70 Columbus, between the two Motropolis Towers, or at the corner of Marin and Montgomery.


It's going between the towers, which is a big parking lot at the moment, it's pretty damn close the intersection. I would expect there to be an entrance very near the corner of Columbus and Marin, and likely one on Montgomery as well.

Completely agree about Metropolis Towers - a horrible eyesore. Unfortunately, the renderings appear to show the towers in the background, so I don't think they're going anywhere.


Damn right it's going nowhere, just completed substantial renovations. I prefer Trop Towers over these sterile glass and steel building that all look the same.
