bearbear - from the last condo meeting i went to you can expect more units to slowly trickle into the market. the renters they have in some units are not being extended - so keep an eye out. i recommend contacting diana sutherlin, my agent who is like bff with the sales director there prob can show you units as they are about to come to market.

does anyone have any thoughts on the 140 bay area? we've been looking around there & i just can't make heads or tails of what is going to happen there? right now it feels a bit desolate at times, lots of empty lots.

we've also looked at hamilton square, love the building but feels like every time a place hits the market it's gone just as quick.

I recently bought in Paulus Hook (66 Morris) and am loving the neighborhood. If you are priced out of 77 Hudson and are willing to do a walk-up, you could try to find a re-sale at the Sun Blossom Condos on Washington Street. There is also a cool taller condo building at 105 Greene Street in a very transit-friendly location, but with prices that will probably be more doable than 77 Hudson.

Beyond Paulus Hook I am a big fan of Hamilton Park. +1 for the Hamilton Square development and its construction quality. It's not super-close to transit but the building seems very nice.

we purchased in the Hamilton Square this Feb and LOVE it. the walls that share with other units are concrete and so are the ceilings so noise is no problem. the people, the neighborhood, everything is worth a look.

there is a lot more to talk about the place, but if you are looking around I would put it on your list of places to see.

As long as views aren't that important to you, GC is a good bet.

If views, quality construction, and convenience is important, 77 hudson is your best bet. Shore club is also nice but a farther walk to the PATH. Crystal point is also worth considering but no deeded parking - I believe parking is valet.

If money is of no consequence, try and see if anything is available in sugar house lofts - probably the best condo building in all of hudson county, but definitely in jersey city.


I wish it were the case that money was no object, but... =)

I agree that any sound seeping in from my neighbors' would totally defeat the purpose of purchasing a space downtown (I already deal with this on a daily basis in my rental building and know it sucks). Aside from GC, have you had any "noise experiences" in the other buildings I noted in my initial post? I made a point to pound on all of the shared walls between units while walking through them, but that probably isn't the most foolproof way to determine whether or not I'll have to listen to my neighbors' conversations at 3 in the morning while tossing and turning in my own bed. I suppose it's the nature of the beast--living in cramped conditions sort of creates this microcosm where peace and quiet is a luxury in and of itself, but that's one "amenity" I will not budge on. I can't imagine developers being able to put up these massive buildings just to skimp on sound-proofing, but it wouldn't be the first time common sense took a backseat.

There are also units in modern brownstone-like structures on the 3 streets perpendicular to Grand leading to Regent street and the beer garden.

I am at 10 Regent in one of the units facing north (opposite side of the beer garden) on the first floor. It's very quite since I am facing the backyard of all the brownstone. No view whatsover thought :(

10 Regent does get noise from the beer garden on weekend nights. Co-worker has a unit facing west and says noise on some weekends can be pretty obnoxious. Other than that, it's pretty quiet.

How's the sound isolation at Liberty Harbor?
