JERSEY CITY -- New zoning approved by the City Council last week paves the way for a $280 million expansion of Liberty Science Center that will include a K-12 science and math-focused school, labs and a "scholars village" with residences for visiting scientists.

The project, known as Scitech Scity, is slated for 16 acres of city-owned land adjacent to the science center. Mayor Steve Fulop in a statement touted the project as one that will be a catalyst for a growing technology sector in Jersey City.

"Funding for the project is expected to come largely from venture partners and philanthropists"

Sounds great! I just hope they already know who is paying for this so we dont get stuck with the bill in a few years. Looking forward to it though.

Must be nice, with all the FREE land they're getting from Jersey City to build it. Are we sure we can trust Liberty Science Center to not screw this project up?

Remember some years ago when the city had to bail out Liberty Science Center with an interest-free $ 2.5 million loan? This was because when they expanded their buildings years ago, they had no clue how massive the increased utility costs were going to be. I don't know if they ever paid the loan back either.

Furthermore, let's not forget all the vice presidents the organization has with their extremely bloated salaries and yet they laid off a slew of people who make less than $ 30,000 per year. Yeah, I'm sure they'll do great running a hotel, school, residential community and research facility.


You sound like DanL. This is a fantastic and welcomed addition to the city. Unless you're saying the land should have been sold to the highest bidder.


The land should have been sold to the highest bidder but that's another matter. It will be fantastic if it ever actually gets built and the Liberty Science Center knows what the hell they're doing when they are running it. Given their past track record, I can't see how they can be trusted.

I guess it'll need a superhighway from the Liberty Diner to Van Vorst Park, once they build the car bridge alongside the stinky bridge to connect downtown without having to drive Grand/Pacific/Johnston to get there.
