Louis Manzo who was the Health Inspector for Jersey City under Cucci said the land was capped and the chrominum goes sideways. He actually wrote a book and fictionalize Jersey City has a shore town that had chromium. In that book he wrote about the behavior of chrominum.

Right..SHI had a few small traces of contamination, SHII did have more and it was dug out and removed. SHIII (Droyers Point ) had the most and sections of that phase were clay capped and built on.

The SH development didn’t need a tax abatement because it was planned and built at the height of a real estate market boom in the late 80’s. It was going to be detached 2 family houses but the plan changed to condos. (to fit more units in $$) There were long buyer lines at every development being built all over NJ especially Hovnanian projects. People would camp out for days. (sort of like todays Apple and sneaker releases) As I posted before a lottery was held for SHI. Tens of thousands of people from all over the tri state area signed up for a chance to buy a condo with the models not even finished yet. They had the drawing down at the LSP RR building. It was a mad house.

When the market collapsed in the 90’s with SHI being 80% complete there was a fear that the three phases would not be built but they were and are still going strong.

PS – people from SH go to Bayonne Park for recreation. (and they don't glow)

Bayfront next door neighbor, Society Hill, was developed in the 1980s without tax abatements but I am sure this will get a load of tax abatements. Did I forget to mention that Society Hill is also built on toxic soil?

Wasn't a new LR station part of the plan? Is that no longer part of the plan?

A river so polluted I wouldn't dip a toe in. You have to cross the highway of death to get to the LR. Walking distance to Lincoln Park, with clubs? If you have a death wish. As far as market rate, who knows. Did I miss any downtown developments with 50% low income? Whitlock Cordage is better than nothing, but BeLa ain't downtown.

Well, you are just full of useful information tonight

1) It's right on the river
2) It's walking distance from an HBLR station
3) It's walking distance to the new golf course and Lincoln Park
4) The market rate units will not be cheap
5) Fulop's policy for a few years has pushed for more affordable units in DTJC

Checkout the renderings on the link... all very bucolic, then I see #4... and my eyes are attracted to the 5 Wind Turbines in the aqua blue Hackensack River. I flashed back to that crazy afro adorned quiet spoken scenery painter on PBS Bob Ross painting that scene.

"You know, let's connect the deep blue water of the Hackensack to the blue cloudy sky by painting in 5 happy little wind turbines just to make the neighborhood a little more eco friendly".

Former toxic site shouldn't just be for the rich, Jersey City mayor says

In a major shift that would transform a 100-acre mixed-use community planned for Jersey City's western waterfront, Mayor Steve Fulop said his administration will seek to make 50 percent of the planned residential units on-site affordable housing.

Fulop announced the proposed change, which could increase the number of affordable units on the Bayfront site by 900 percent, in a letter he sent earlier this month to Honeywell International. Honeywell co-owns the formerly chromium-contaminated site with Jersey City and will partner with the city to find developers.

Kushner Companies scraps planned Orthodox Jewish community in Jersey City

Had it been granted the $150M bid, the company could have built 8,100 homes at formerly contaminated Bayfront site

May 10, 2017 11:30AM

UPDATED, May 10, 12:30 p.m.: Kushner Companies was the leading bidder on an industrial site called Bayfront in Jersey City that would become home to a planned Jewish community geared toward members of Orthodox sects who are being priced out of Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

But when Bloomberg reporters asked company spokesperson James Yolles about the bid on Tuesday, Yolles said that the company already dropped any intentions it had to buy the site from Honeywell and Jersey City for $150 million. An unnamed Kushner employee also told the news site that these plans were dropped late last year, but the office of Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop said it was unaware of this and has yet to receive any word of Kushner’s withdrawal from consideration.

It’s unclear if the Kushners decided to abandon the project for ethics reasons, but Honeywell, a Fortune 100 list conglomerate, has billions in government contracts that could prove tricky in any dealmaking tied to the Kushners. The development would likely also require federal subsidies to improve the infrastructure within and surrounding the site. “It’s a good sign that they are pulling out,” Larry Noble, general counsel of the Campaign Legal Center, told Bloomberg. “Though the question is whether or not it’s just because of the publicity or because they actually see there is a potential conflict of interest in these situations.”

In a statement to The Real Deal, Yolles said “a decision was made late last year not to pursue the project because the company was not persuaded by the economics of the deal.”

Last weekend, the company made front page news when White House senior adviser Jared Kushner’s sister Nicole promoted a Jersey City project at One Journal Square to Chinese investors. The sales pitch made mention of Kushner Companies’ ties to the White House and Nicole told the audience the project was “important” to her entire family. It was later reported that the project in question is going through a rough spot, losing an anchor tenant in WeWork and at risk of losing a key 30-year tax abatement. [Bloomberg] — Will Parker

Kushner firm drops bid to develop Jersey City's Bayfront

By Terrence T. McDonald | The Jersey Journal
Email the author | Follow on Twitter
on May 10, 2017 at 9:42 AM, updated May 10, 2017 at 11:39 AM

Kushner Companies is no longer seeking to develop a sprawling, formerly contaminated site on the western Jersey City waterfront that officials have said will become the city's "second gold coast."

The firm, run by the family of Jared Kushner, adviser and son-in-law to President Trump, was one of multiple bidders seeking to develop the 100-acre property, known as Bayfront. The city's plan is to have more than 8,000 units of residential housing, parks, retail shops and other commercial properties on the site, located along the Hackensack River just north of Society Hill.

Yes Country Village had flooding during Sandy the houses with basements flooded. They always had problems with flooding with heavy rain over the years. Especially the ones with the steep sloping driveways leading to basement garages. After Sandy the city installed one of the 4 super pumps on Mina Drive. Seems to be working out fine.

Society Hill I, II, and Droyers Point did not have any flooding inside of any of the condo’s and there were no basements to flood. SH is close to 10 feet above sea level. The Sandy storm surge did come within a few inches of the rear of the first floor units along the river. (it was a real nail biter) The streets in front of the units did flood with a few inches of water because the water came up through the sewers which drain out into Newark Bay. There were just enough inches of water to ruin many cars down there. I recall one even shorted out and burned.

Hudson Mall was flooded out being it was built decades ago and is almost at river level. I’m sure Bayfront will be built even higher than Society Hill was especially after Sandy and the new flooding regulations. You can see how high the NJCU West Campus is now and how they also raised the new Lincoln Park Golf Course.

Yeah that area will be nice once complete like a well-planned mini city within a city. It has been in the works for what seems like forever but it is finally starting. People never thought Society Hill would be built it also took a long time to get going but once it started it took off with phases 1, 2, and 3. All kinds of delays . It was originally going to be unattached 2 family houses like Country Village but the developer backed out and Hovanian stepped in and built SH.

I think I posted this before but there was/is talk about extending the LR to Newark Airport. If you look at one of the drawings on the Bayfront website the one with the wind mills you can see a bridge carrying LR cars over the water. If you do a satellite map of Culver and rt 440 look at the water behind the Toyota property. You can still see the outline of the old railroad bridge in the water maybe they will revive it?

Another thing when SH was being planned and sold a big selling point was that the LR was going to go down to the old Roosevelt Stadium Drive-In. They were going to build a huge Park and Ride lot on the site along with a LR station. Those plans died but they seem to have resurfaced again with Bayfront.

Why Two Sites in Jersey City Received Quick Cleanups of Chrome

By ROBERT HANLEY, Special to The New York Times
Published: July 18, 1989

JERSEY CITY— While poisonous chromium leaches undisturbed toward the surface of neighborhoods across this city, the contaminated sites of two large developments have undergone quick exclusive cleanups.

The complexes, Newport City and Society Hill, are major elements of a waterfront renaissance. State officials separated both cleanups from a broader neighborhood study that was mired in dispute and delay from its start in 1985 until it was finished last spring, two years late.

The approach has enabled construction to start at Newport City and Society Hill while leaving homes, work sites and people exposed to toxic chromium over the more than five years the authorities have known of the danger.

Let me guess because they were glowing green right? SH is fine I know plenty of people who have lived there from the start. Gee almost 25 years and still no glow. It is still one of the most successful developments in JC.

Just out of curiosity …your user name is NewportNJ do you live there? You do know it was/is one of the most contaminated properties in Jersey City right? . Also there were many questions on how and if the the contamination was fully cleaned up in Newport. Just as Lou Manzo or do some reseach.

I saw Sommerman asked about the rt 440 Bayfront project on the Radio Shack RIP thread. So I will throw an update onto this thread. Below is my original post with three links to the three rt 440 projects that I am aware of. They will span rt 440 from Society Hill to Culver Avenue.

I have also added two new links that I found: A link that gives up to date information on the rt 440 remediation progress scheduled to be completed in 2016. A new Bayfront link with drawings from an architect firm named Minno & Wasko.

Oh yeah and they have started to demolish the rt 440 JCMUA, DPW and JCIA buildings since they moved to the new Linden Avenue complex.

A really fantastic project!!

JERSEY CITY, NEW JERSEY
Bayfront Redevelopment LLC

Bayfront is slated to become one of Jersey City’s newest waterfront communities. The site is located on the east side of Jersey City and ideally situated to take advantage of views to the Hackensack River and Newark Bay. The 100 acre development will have 23 acres of open green space; about 4-5 times the amount normally found in a typical Jersey City urban tract of the same size. The project will be built in phases, and the 1st 18-acre phase will include 6 blocks of residential and mixed use buildings and 8 acres of public green space that will offer waterfront walkways and passive park areas.

100 Acre site, 23 acres open space
4,200- 8,100 residential dwelling units
200,000 – 600,000 sq ft Retail space
700,000 – 1,000,000 sq ft office space
Includes a future transit Station (Hudson-Bergen Light Rail)

I just hope this actually gets done and it is not another pull the rug out from under the JC residents kind of election year bs deal. Like the Journal Square Towers grand announcement before the May 2009 election.


It's a nice vision for the future but if it's done in phases without any setbacks it will be at least 20 years before the area will look like the illustrations.

This is what I got from reading the JJ over the years. There are really three projects for the “West side”.

Bay Front is from Society Hill down to Culver both sides of rt 440.

The new West Side project is across rt 440 across from the MUA and Toyota Dealer. This one is new haven’t seen it mentioned before.

I just hope this actually gets done and it is not another pull the rug out from under the JC residents kind of election year bs deal. Like the Journal Square Towers grand announcement before the May 2009 election.

Jersey City Planning Board backs redevelopment for area between Route 440, West Side Avenue

Thirty acres on Jersey City’s West Side just east of Route 440 would become a redevelopment area with a new street grid and new residential and commercial development under a plan given initial approval by the Planning Board last night.

The Route 440/Culver Redevelopment Plan would allow the city to take industrial properties in the area by eminent domain if the owners do not redevelop the properties within the next five years.

Full JJ piece…

And this is the .pdf of the plan, check out the maps at the end of where the light rail will extend too. When the light rail was first planned it was going to go down Culver. Looks like that idea is coming back.

is this project happening in phases? It looks a lot smaller on the area map than i thought it was originally.
