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.

Leasing to begin at Journal Squared in February

NJBIZ  By Andrew George, December 19, 2016 at 12:08 PM

With the first of three residential towers situated next to the Journal Square PATH station in Jersey City now complete, the mixed-use Journal Squared project will begin leasing rental space in February 2017.

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.

The now completed 53-story tower will offer 538 rentable residential units. The two other towers will stand at 63 stories and 71 stories, respectively.

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.

How are people going to get around this city? I am all for a commuter lifestyle but you have to have the means.

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."

JJ piece…

Construction on Jersey City's massive three-tower residential development begins

By Jonathan Lin | The Jersey Journal
on August 11, 2014 at 1:12 PM

Construction on "Journal Squared," a massive three-tower project that will include the tallest residential building in New Jersey has begun in Jersey City's Journal Square.

The KRE Group project, which is located between Magnolia, Pavonia, and Summit avenues, just east of the Port Authority transportation hub will include a 54-story tower with 540 units; a 70-story tower with 700 units; and a 60-story tower with 600 units. The project received a 30-year tax abatement from the city last November.

Once completed, the 70-story tower is expected to be the tallest residential building in New Jersey, according to Hollwich Kushner's website, surpassing the 55-story Trump Tower Residences in Downtown Jersey City, which opened in 2008.

Yes indeed…I went by today (8/2/2014) and sure enough there is a massive 2 story hole excavated on the lot with mountains of dirt next to it. Tractors galore and what looks like black foundation footings. Unless JScare got hit with a meteorite or someone revealed yet another interment spot for Hoffa I would say foundation work on the first tower has begun. The old white Bell Telephone building is still standing but I think that is where tower three is going so I guess there is no rush to take it down.

This is the architect’s web site with 7 images.
(they also did 18 Park. I love the seventh image of the JSquare towers via the iPhone)

Gas main break at site of $666 million project closes Jersey City roads for hour

By Michaelangelo Conte/The Jersey Journal
January 31, 2014 at 7:40 PM

A gas main was ruptured at a site undergoing demolition work adjacent to Jersey City’s Journal Square Transportation Center this afternoon, causing streets to be closed in the area.

The gas line break occurred at 3 p.m. at the KRE construction site at Pavonia and Summit avenues.

The $666 million KRE project calls for 54-story tower with 540 units, a 70-story tower with 700 units and a 60-story tower with 600 units. The developer is KRE Group, headed by Murray Kushner.

Construction of the first tower is to take three years to complete. The final tower is expected to be complete in 2029.

By 4 p.m. all streets around Journal Square were reopened.

Officials at the transportation hub said that buses were temporarily delayed after the roads were closed, but that by 5 p.m. the buses were all on schedule.

Maybe I'm missing something (always a possibility). Why are we so concerned with attracting new people to JC, we're incredibly densely populated as it stands.

Why aren't we just focusing on making it better for EXISTING residents?

We don't really need new people at all, unless the city is planning to replace those in abject poverty with tax payers, which would net out positive. But if we're talking about just attracting new residents, why?

Are rents not expensive enough (from a supply/demand standpoint)?

You stated it already. The city would like to replace residents that are currently paying little to no taxes with those that will pour it in.

Additionally, by attracting individuals that will spend more, and spend more locally, the services will have to improve. This isn't about making life more expensive for you. Bringing in new, high quality of life residents should decrease your cost.

The only downside would be that you might not be able to afford Downtown. Something with deeper pockets would replace you Downtown and then you can replace someone in McGuinley Square.
