If you disagree with LPR/citizenship granted to someone willing to invest half a mil in the US, then reach out to your congressman/woman and your senators. Meanwhile, there is nothing wrong or nefarious in what the Kushners are doing. It's the same thing all savvy developers are doing: wooing foreign capital to fund projects.


People are complaining because it's an obvious conflict of interest when the developer offering visa's for investment $$$$ is a Kushner and related to our moron president.

Kushner family in Beijing: 'Invest $500,000 and immigrate' to US


May 6, 2017: 2:16 PM ET

The Kushner family hopes to lure investments from wealthy business owners in China with the promise of American visas.

Nicole Kushner Meyer, the sister of White House adviser and President Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner, spoke at an event in Beijing on Saturday. She was marketing a Kushner-owned property in New Jersey -- invest in the development and get into the United States on a so-called EB-5 visa.
.
.
.
The event was meant to draw investors for 1 Journal Square, a $976.4 million residential and commercial project underway in New Jersey. The company says about 15% of it will be funded through the EB-5 program.

Developers celebrate opening of first Journal Square high-rise

By Terrence T. McDonald | The Jersey Journal
Email the author | Follow on Twitter
on March 17, 2017 at 1:02 PM, updated March 17, 2017 at 2:14 PM

JERSEY CITY -- The developers behind the first tower in the Journal Squared project celebrated the opening of the 53-story high-rise today, saying the "bold and beautiful" building will transform the area.

The first residents begin moving into the tower's 538 luxury apartments tomorrow. Jonathan Kushner, of KRE Group, which is behind the three-tower project, said KRE has leased about 100 apartments since the leasing office opened a week ago.

The $204 million tower is Journal Square's first skyscraper, the first of five high-rises planned for around the PATH hub. A sixth is planned for across Sip Avenue, on the site of the old Jersey Journal building.

Journal Squared's first Jersey City apartment tower launches leasing

The building’s 538 apartments all have views of Manhattan and beyond

CURBED NEW YORK by Mar 8, 2017, 10:00am EST

The first phase of Journal Squared, a massive project in Jersey City developed by KRE Group and National Real Estate Advisors, is officially on the market. Leasing launched this week for the first tower’s 538 apartments. Eventually, the development’s three towers will collectively bring 1,838 apartments, 36,000 square feet of retail, and a public plaza to the Journal Square neighborhood.

Apartments in the 432 Park look-alike will begin on the ninth floor to ensure that “each apartment offers spectacular views of the Hudson River, Statue of Liberty, and the Manhattan skyline,” per a release. More than half of the units are one-bedrooms with open floor plans, hardwood floors and oversized windows.

Journal Squared's first Jersey City tower will rent from $1,800

Also get a drone’s-eye view of the massive development site

CURBED NEW YORK - by Jan 25, 2017, 5:15pm EST

Just over a week after we saw photos of the nearly-finished first tower at the massive Journal Squared development in Jersey City, we now have pricing info on the project that will bring 538 apartments to the neighborhood. The Wall Street Journal reports that studios here will start from $1,800/month, one-bedrooms from $2,100, and two-bedrooms from $3,200.

More than 50 percent of the units here are one-bedrooms, and a little over 25 percent are studios, according to the Journal. The first of three towers being developed by the KRE Group and National Real Estate Advisors, is part of an overall development that will eventually bring 1,838 apartments to Journal Square along with 36,000 square feet of retail, a public plaza, and restaurants.

but in all honesty, i do think its a good location and theres a real dearth for a good supermarket, and even a movie theater could do well there too.

There are also a few smaller projects about 40 to 130 units going up. Most of these are rentals. I'm not aware of any of these being condos. There's also a micro units building going up on Academy. The micros are really small... I mean small!!

We are trying to put together a deal too for about 120 units.

Off the top of my head I know of four that are either approved or In the process of getting approvals.

Journal Squared’s first Jersey City tower nears completion

Curbed New York - by Jan 17, 2017,

As Jersey City’s skyline continues to transform, a few tall towers have started to rise above the rest. There’s the 780-foot Goldman Sachs tower, which was completed in 2004; Urby Harborside, a cluster of boxy towers; and the Journal Squared complex, which will have 1,800 apartments over three different skyscrapers.

As the first phase of the latter development inches towards completion, Field Condition took a trip across the Hudson River to see how the building is coming along. This particular tower is the smallest in the larger Journal Squared development; it’ll rise just 563 feet and 53 stories when it’s finished, compared to the other two buildings, which will rise 60 and 70 stories.

Developed by Kushner Real Estate Group and National Real Estate Advisors, the project ultimately calls for 1,838 residential units and approximately 36,000 square feet of retail dining space with direct access to the transit hub.

Journal Square high-rise construction project halted over falling debris

By Ron Zeitlinger | The Jersey Journal
December 11, 2015 at 6:49 PM

JERSEY CITY -- The massive Journal Squared construction project in Journal Square has been temporarily halted after debris fell from the high-rise building this afternoon, Jersey City spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill said.

Pavonia Avenue between Kennedy Boulevard and Summit Avenue, and Homestead Place, between Pavonia and Van Reipen avenues, have been closed until at least tomorrow. The streets will not be reopened until the netting on the 53-story residential high-rise is re-secured, Morrill said.

It's pretty unbelievable that they are all going to be rentals. Does nobody see a market for condos here? There is like zero inventory for sale anywhere downtown.

Good luck getting a seat on the Path if you live anywhere downtown. This will exacerbate an already awful situation.

Stringer, that rendering is not the Journal Squared project. It is the other megaproject which is still stalled. The article has the correct rendering of the three-tower complex.

Journal Squared rental towers will bring 1,838 residences to site

November 21, 2014, 1:21 AM

Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop joined officials from development partners The KRE Group and National Real Estate Advisors (National) on Tuesday, Oct. 21 to officially break ground on "Journal Squared," a three-tower, mixed-use development adjacent to the Journal Square PATH Station that is expected to fuel the revitalization of the massive transportation hub and serve as the centerpiece of a resurgent urban neighborhood.

Rising at the intersection of Pavonia and Summit Avenues, the new development will comprise 1,838 rental residences and 36,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space in 53-, 60- and 70-story towers – the latter of which will be the tallest residential building in New Jersey. The transformative project will also include a pedestrian-friendly public plaza. The collective elements of Journal Squared will reenergize the City’s largest transportation center and benefit current and future residents, business owners, area employees and commuters.

"This is an exciting day because this is really a game-changer for Jersey City in so many ways," Mayor Fulop said. "This project is going to change Jersey City, and it’s certainly going to change Journal Square. When all three towers are complete, it will literally transform and recreate the entire Jersey City skyline. That is no small accomplishment and nothing short of something that the entire City should be proud of."

Phase I of Journal Squared will be a 53-story building with 538 rental apartments that is scheduled for completion by the end of 2016. Phase II will include 700 rental residences in a 70-story building, while Phase III will feature 600 rental homes in a 60-story building. A total of 920 parking spaces will also be included in the development. The developers will pursue LEED certification for all three buildings.

Developer breaks ground on 'Journal Squared,' tallest residential building in state

By Jonathan Lin | The Jersey Journal
on October 21, 2014 at 2:57 PM, updated October 21, 2014 at 2:59 PM

Game changer. Transformative. Incredible.

These were just some of the words used by Jersey City officials and developer KRE Group at the groundbreaking ceremony this morning for "Journal Squared," a massive, three-tower project at the heart of the city which, upon completion, will boast the tallest residential building in New Jersey.

"This project which we're undertaking today is truly a transformative project -- transformative for this wonderful city of Jersey City, and for the state of New Jersey," said Murray Kushner, KRE Group chairman, before a gathering of about 100 people. "The design, the scale, the scope of this project, and the importance of this project to restoring the historical significance of Journal Square are self-evident."
