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:

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.

The flood of incredible coffee in 2015 was one of the best things that's ever happened to me.

For what it's worth, 9Bar has the best overall coffee, Prato has the best coffee, sandwich, and sit experience, and Seven Sheep has the coolest food offerings. That croissant with vegetable thing is so damn good.

Looks like the rumor mill was right with Latin Lounge, Hippie - looks a lot nicer now, tacky blue lights aside. Lamp Post now has a sign for Batata Cafe, but I can't find any info on it aside from a location by the same name in Brooklyn.

Word in the neighborhood is that the Latin Lounge is trying to class up their act a bit and reopen -- the renovations are pretty nice and putting in a window is a good move.

The old Lamp Post space is, as I understand it, supposed to be a Brazilian or Brazilian fusion spot of sorts, BYOB.

Ha, this thread is about 90% questions and 10% answers.

Does anybody have any intel on the ground floor commercial space at the "Vito A Lofts" on Columbus just west of Jersey Ave? It's been outfitted for some sort of commercial or retail operation.

By the way, the building actually looks like a cool building, I just don't know if I could get over telling people that I live in the "Vito A. Lofts", LOL.

Well, it can't be worse than the deli that used to be in that space.


oh god that deli. with Shouty McRageRoid behind the counter, and his yappy dog.

I wonder if the new place would consider doing breakfast. I'd be there every morning if they could perfect an egg n' cheese. (or hell, a hamburger, egg n' cheese, if they must stick to the theme.)

That is actually great news.

It seems like for the last ten years every time I take WTC the entry/exiting is worse than it was last time. Hopefully some time this century there's an underground transfer to the ACE again.

the space on first street at erie, right across from torico??? I peaked in one morning when the back door was open, i could see a bar.. they just layed tiles down on the front stoop. anybody have any more information than that? (sorry if it's already been discussed, i didn't see it)


Spoke to a guy a few weeks back who was working on it, and he said burger joint. I got to peek inside, it's this beautiful wooden counter. Maybe it'll be more of a pick up spot instead of restaurant, like Left Bank?


take-out burger joint. they really classed-up that storefront. I hope they succeed, if only as a reward for making that corner so much prettier than it was when it housed an endless succession of lackluster delis.


Walked past this place this morning - they now have a hamburger sign hanging out the front. Quite understated, not at all garish.

While I'm at it, one of the "no photos!" gestapo at WTC PATH was telling a commuter this morning that the new southern exits will be opening next week. Anyone who works south of WTC will probably shave about five minutes off their commute by exiting on Liberty and Church rather than schlepping up to Vesey and then backtracking down Greenwich.
