The Journal Squared project at Journal Square from Pavonia Ave to Summit Avenue is about to begin.

I have mixed feelings: At one end, I enjoy some of the nice newer developments in the JC area. Because of them, I get to enjoy nearby restaurants, shops, parks, and just a nicer area than the current JSQ area, which is still clustered and dingy. At the other end, some nicer residential towers that are currently up and running demand rents that I, honestly, cannot afford.

This brings me to the residents about to be displaced. Where are middle income tenants like that suppose to go if they cannot afford to live in a nice building? They are being pushed out so others can enjoy the proximity to the trains leaving the current residents to find something (near transportation) with rent that is $2600+/a month or they would have to move out of JC.

Maybe it's just me but I feel there is no middle ground. It's either a place you can't afford in the luxury towers or a residence that is worse than where one currently is.

With that said, is there a place for middle income residents in JC that's decent?
