Just saw a coming soon sign for a place called seafood shack on the corner of Garfield and Comminpaw. Anybody know anything about the owners or timeline for opening?

Block party was great, and yes to an extent retail is good, however, brick and mortar retail does not do as well as e commerce. Restaurants occupy retail locations and if they are successful don't have competition from e commerce.

615 jersey is going to be an office space for Gotham West. This was told to me by one of the workers at the site. I was hoping for a new restaurant but oh well.

Anyone know what is being done at 615 Jersey Ave? I'm not sure if it is residential or commercial, although there looks like a counter along one wall that you would rest drinks on.

Good for them, the VVP neighborhood desperately needs more local retail that isn't a hair salon or a medical/real estate office. I'm looking forward to visiting as soon as they open, whatever it may be.


Actually, Montgomery, starting west from the park, has a lot of abandoned and underutilized ground floor retail. If done right, it has potential to be redeveloped into a nice restaurant/retail strip.

Does anyone know what is going into the old sleep cheap store on Newark Ave? It's a massive space and I was curiously looking into the window today and saw a bunch of succulents and plants being stored. Is that store being converted?

While on the topic, anyone know anything about Hard Grove Cafe? Are they completely out of business or looking to open in a new spot?

Thanks.

I guess i'll reserve my judgment until i actually see it and hope that my untrained eye will be pleasantly surprised, but the renderings do not look beautiful to me - it looks clunky and already strangely dated. And that red accent...

As for whether or not we will look back in a few decades and look at this design as an eyesore, there are alot of curves in nature that we find beautiful and so they are a natural influence on architecture. The Dancing Tower in Prague was built in the early 1990's and to this day it is a beloved building:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dancing_ ... ia/File:Case_danzanti.jpg

I think people generally value architecture that is balanced, unique, and still fits into its surroundings (as we see in this proposal for 280 Newark Ave).

That isn't Jersey City. The bike isn't on the sidewalk.

(I love the look of the building - if it ends up looking anything like that, it will be a win. With very few exceptions, the "architecture" of Jersey City lacks style and imagination. More of this, please!)

That's because the one's that ride the sidewalk can't afford to live there. Their salaries are just too low even after building these towers.

"The penthouse unit will get a private roof deck with Manhattan and Jersey City views."

That's HILARIOUS.

I sort of like it. It is hard to imagine how the building will be viewed in 20, 30 and 50 years. But I do know that when Eiffel Tower was built, people thought that it was an eye sore. People thought the same thing about the twin towers (WTC). No matter what it looks like, I think people will get used to it eventually.

Re 280 newark - its imaginative, but i dont find it very pleasing to the eye, at least in the rendering. I wonder how it will age. Will we be looking back in 30 years saying "what were they thinking?", kind of like when i see a classic 1970s structure?

A building is opening in Jersey City without a parking deck! #babysteps

It's a pretty good looking rendering.


I really like the look of these modern buildings that compliment their neighborhoods, rather than trying to replicate them.

this one is lovely, and the idea of two side-by-side duplex apartments on the 3/4th floors, each with its own roof deck, is brilliant.

I take it you don't enjoy the cafe culture that many European cities enjoy. Usually it's considered a plus for a city.


Yeah I think it's a more of a positive than a negative, I was more commenting on their feasibility of success given the other spots nearby.
