this building has a lot of problems:

1) building quality issues - leaks, defective window units, pipes etc..

2) upcoming construction on north, west, and south side in very close proximity that will block a lot of the light nevermind any views. Only the east side is somewhat safe as there is no plan to touch avalon currently and it has some distance to allow sunlight with washington blvd in between even if there is a highrise in place of avalon.

3) horrible inexperienced management who has no idea how to deal with all those significant building problems but waste the association's money.

If you are looking to buy in the area, i would avoid A condo and trump especially considering how overpriced they are vs what you get.

If you are looking for top end checkout crystal point and 77 hudson (i prefer crystal point - better value/finish/views, and parking included), or the newport condos that have a better immediate neighborhood.

For mid end, checkout portofino, mandalay, and 311 washington st. (i prefer portofino - larger units, new lobby, parking included and very well managed low condo fees).

Either way cant go wrong with any of those buildings, but not A condo (too many problems and bad management) and trump (horribly overpriced and badly managed)

good luck

not surprising. I look at how quickly they put up towers and wonder. I saw a building in Manhattan that was recently undergoing extensive exterior renovation even though it was less than 2-4 years old

Don't know about the sinking issue but A condo seems to have compromised on the quality of material used during constructions.

Recently, it had a pipe burst on 24th floor and 3 lines of floors, right from 24th to 7th floor (bellow 7th its all parking) have been damaged. Even now if you walk into A condos floor, you will see open walls, switches, connections, etc.

Heard that this is the third time the building got damaged because of the water problem. And it was constructed when? Around 2007?

Also, remember during Sandy, A condos was the last building in the area to get electricity. It is built on a different grid.

Saying it all from personal experience. Lived there for last two years, was about to buy and then decided against it.

Never heard about 1 Greene sinking and would be somewhat surprised since its a relatively older building. Did hear that Goldman Sachs had issues - windows popping/breaking but don't know if that true, but the scaffold around GS seems to be a permanent fixture now.

FYI - Paulus Hook at one time was marshland, so the entire area is built on landfill.

All new buildings large or small "sink" it's part of the settling process of a new construction.

I'm waiting for all of the buildings to be built then buying on the edge. This way the noise will end and I'll be sure to have my view.

Not sure where you heard that rumor, but it is totally not true.

Does anybody know if there are any structural problems with A-Condos (389 Washington Street, Jersey City)? The rumor I heard was that this building is sinking?!?!
Anybody heard anything?
