Not torn down but can't it still be converted into condos?

At least. Get some storefronts maybe, along with the other building with construction underway, it could be a small step forward for J.sq

Jersey Journal to move headquarters to Secaucus in the fall

By The Jersey Journal
August 15, 2013 at 8:15 PM

The Jersey Journal, Hudson County?s daily newspaper since 1867, will move its headquarters to Secaucus in the fall, Publisher Ken Whitfield announced at a staff meeting this afternoon.

The new offices, at One Harmon Plaza, are being designed with 21st-century needs in mind and will feature all new furniture for staffers. The 10th-floor offices also have spectacular views of Hudson County and the New York skyline.

The paper is working to find a satellite office in Jersey City for reporters and salespeople, Whitfield said.

The move comes just months after the newspaper upgraded to new computer systems and outfitted many of its staff writers with laptops to bring Hudson County news to Hudson County as speedily as possible via NJ.com/Hudson.

The new office, termed ?The Jersey Journal 2.0? by Whitfield, ?will offer room for our teams to collaborate, visit with news sources and with customers,?? he said. ?There?s also ample space to welcome the Hudson community into our new home to regularly discuss issues important to them.?

The paper continues to print six days a week, Monday through Saturday, with its presses remaining at one of its sister paper?s plants, the Staten Island Advance in Staten Island.

This will be the fifth home base in The Jersey Journal?s storied history.

Begun by two Civil War veterans, what was then The Evening Journal was first printed on May 2, 1867. At the time, the paper was headquartered in a two-room office at 13 Exchange Place off Jersey City?s working waterfront. A hand press was installed in a building at Hudson and Montgomery streets, literally cranking out the afternoon paper, a task that sometimes involved longshoremen from the nearby Cunard lines.

By 1875, the Journal had outgrown those early facilities and installed itself in brand-new headquarters at 37 Montgomery St., where it stayed until moving to what is now Journal Square in 1911. By then, the paper had been renamed The Jersey Journal.

By 1925, the paper was building its current building, 30 Journal Square, which originally housed its presses as well as its staff. The architect was the prolific John T. Rowland, Mayor Frank Hague?s personal favorite, who, according to Jersey Journal Legends & Landmarks columnist John Gomez, designed many of Jersey City?s most recognizable buildings ? among them Dickinson, Lincoln and Snyder high schools; All Saints Church; 2600 Kennedy Blvd.; and, most famously, the old Jersey City Medical Center, which is now home to the Beacon residences.

Journal Square is named after the paper.
