What's interesting is that only a handful of neighbors against this tower came out to the Planning Board and the Council hearings on it. While many of us came out in support, seeking only minor modifications. But that wasn't in the article

Jersey City residents voice opposition to proposed Saint Peter's University tower

By Jonathan Lin | The Jersey Journal
on July 29, 2014 at 12:59 PM, updated July 29, 2014 at 4:39 PM

"All these people's lives are going to change," said Donna Cabell, head of the Mercer Block Association, also known as the Mercer Street Newsletter Group. "The traffic is already a mess there, this is going to make it worse."

Cabell said that she has collected 200 names on a petition against the university's project, but that many members of the community are afraid to speak out against the project.?

Saint Peter's Tower Provides New Concept in Retirement Living for Boomers

Thursday, March 19, 2015
Posted by: Angeline Boyer

Coming in 2018, the new Saint Peter?s tower will be located two-blocks from campus in McGinley Square. The tower will include 454 apartments and 100 of these units are being designed specifically for baby boomers with an interest in lifelong learning and an active, healthy lifestyle. These apartments are open to all graduates of Jesuit schools in America.

The views of Manhattan from this tower will be as good as they get. It will also have a rooftop-restaurant, a pool, a movie theatre, a fresh grocer, a bank and many other amenities. Most importantly, the building will have affordable rental rates.

If you are interested in learning more about possibly becoming a part of this special community, please click here or contact the Saint Peter's University Office of Alumni Engagement at alumni@saintpeters.edu* or (201) 761-6122.

* If the link does not redirect, please copy and paste the address into a new email.

I know someone who could really use a program like that. Being Jesuit might even encourage the person to go.

Going to reach out to alumni relations to find out more.

I cant speak to how St. Peter's is going to structure this program... but I know Penn State has a program where retirees can audit most classes the school offers for no cost... and there are now classes filled with retirees.

It's been a big win for the school as it generates good PR and makes state college a great place for people to put roots. I think it is great SP would pursue this.

I share this purely from word of mouth, but I would gamble someone around here would know how it actually works.
