Legal battle reignites over proposed Jersey City tower

By Terrence T. McDonald | The Jersey Journal
on August 24, 2015 at 3:29 PM

JERSEY CITY — A battle that could determine how high developers can build in a residential Journal Square neighborhood is back in court, three years after the city negotiated a deal with the developer that would allow for a 42-story tower in the area.

You forgot to mention the big empty lots namesake Mayor Healy. As in “Healy’s big empty ugly lot” I used it in many posts during the last election. (lol)

I’ll just mention one example from Healy’s 2009 campaign BS machine. Remember he actually held a big “party” in front of “Healy’s big empty ugly lot” on April 7, 2009? The event even had a flyer it was dubbed “Square Renaissance: The Beginning “.The flyer is still out there in internet land err I mean (using Healy’s term)the blog-o-sphere. Gee right before the May2009 election how CON-venient. (yes pun intended twice once for the CON Healy pulled on us for the lot and one for all of his administrations CON’s who would be busted shorty in Operation Bid Rig)

jj april 2009:Mayor Jerramiah T. Healy -- who has made the rejuvenation of Journal Square a priority of his administration and part of his campaign for re-election -- applauded the movement.

"My administration has been the first in decades to take the necessary steps to restore Journal Square as the central business district of Jersey City, and we are pleased to see this project move forward," Healy said.

Four times Jersey City pledged to develop still-vacant Journal Square site

By Terrence T. McDonald | The Jersey Journal The Jersey Journal 
August 20, 2015 at  3:23 PM

JERSEY CITY — New plans for a residential tower across the street from the old Jersey Journal headquarters in Journal Square have some excited that the long-vacant lot will finally be home to something other than a garbage receptacle.

But Jersey City has been here before. For at least the last 20 years, city officials have made promises about bringing development to that property. Here is a flashback to some of their lofty pledges

Chris, here it is: Journal Squared, approaching 20 stories, is being done by KRE. That is Murray Kushner the estranged brother of Charlie Kushner. Next to Chase Bank is 3 Journal Square Plaza being done by Joe Panepinto, a political operative & no connection to the Kushners. One Journal Square is to be done by Jared Kushner, Charlie Kushners son, and the son-in-law of Donald Trump. With the similarities of names and addresses it is difficult to keep track.

4. The giant new building on Senate Place next to Canco. A few blocks further away from the Square, but in the same vicinity.

I am trying to keep track of these projects in the works:

1. Journal Squared by Kushner - this is the one directly behind Journal Sq that is under construction and approaching 20 stories already.

2. 1 Journal Square Plaza - this is next to the Chase Bank also being done by Kushner and it looks like some preliminary work has started.

3. 1 Journal Square - the vacant lot mentioned in today's article that may also be done by Kushner.

What other ones are there on the horizon that have a chance to go forward? What happened with the auction for the building that houses the JSQ Pub? I thought this took place in June but I have not heard any outcome/future plans for the site.

After seeing the area in its present state for so many years I am really curious what the next 5-10 years will bring.

Excellent news for JSQ property owners. Not so great news for anyone upstream who relies on the PATH.

Once all of the new developments in the JSQ area are finished, these trains could be packed before leaving JSQ. Then imagine what it will look like once all the other developments are complete.

Mayor Healy wanted to tear down the Loew's. That tells you all you need to know about him and his "progress."

So, zoning has nothing to do with development decisions!! What an educated and informed statement. If you google Jersey City you see plenty of Buzz over the Healy years, the Wall Street Journal, USA today, the Times, ect. Get real, the turn around of Jersey City has been a 30 effort by many people, not the least of which has been the planning professionals of the city. Development of Journal Square and all those great buildings downtown started long before Steven to the oath of office. As a matter of fact, long before he every thought of moving into JC. Now, if you never left, you would know that.

This picture sums up Healy’s term in office for all Journal Square property owners. A field..err I mean lot of empty dreams.

Resized Image

Mayor Healy’s term: November 12, 2004 - June 30, 2013

PS - the Journal Square 2060 Development Plan is not bringing developers to Journal Square, it just states how tall buildings can be.(except for the Robin Hood project) Like it or not Mayor Fulop has created a development buzz in Jersey City especially in Journal Square. Thank you Steve.

So Healy don't get credit for the Journal Square Plan that started in 2007 and was adopted by the CC in 2010, but he takes the hit to the Robin Hood settlement. Also, the EDA grant of $35 million came under Healy, the planning board approval came under Healy, not Steve. Without that grant and planning board, there is no tower in Journal Square. Let give Steven credit for giving KRE the most lucritive tax abatement in the City's history!! You can cherry pick all you want, most of what you see today downtown and in Journal Square and around the city was started under Healy. Even the two project recently give massive EDA grants where stated under Healy and given lucritive long term tax abatements under Steven. Steven is doing it just the way Healy did it, vote against tax abatements as a councilman and push them as mayor. Wonderful how things have changed.

Mayor Healy’s term: November 12, 2004 - June 30, 2013

The 'new' Journal Square takes another step forward: October 18, 2006

(old buildings torn down gutting the heart of JSq……zero new development except for a big empty lot)

Journal Square 2060 Redevelopment Plan: July 14, 2010

(plan was created but soon after Healy and Matsikoudis broke it with the Robin Hood “deal” -zero new development another empty lot)

$600 Million, Three-Tower Residential Project in Journal Square to start later this year : October 23, 2013

“This isn’t the first time a Jersey City mayor has promised a Journal Square renaissance. In 2009, then-Mayor Jerramiah Healy said a twin-tower project on a lot directly across from The Jersey Journal office was imminent, but that property remains empty.

“The public has seen groundbreakings before that didn't come to fruition,” said Fulop. “People are going to see steel coming out of the ground very, very soon.”

"This project, behind us, is really going to change Jersey City and change Journal Square."

"We have made it a priority to get actual buildings going up in Journal Square," Fulop told The Jersey Journal shortly afterward. "This is the first one coming out in decades. It's a big day for Journal Square. It's a game changer, and I couldn't be more excited about it."

(the deal was done at the end of Healy’s term he is NOT responsible for the many new development projects up Journal Square)

I agree, at least 75% of the things happening in my area were done by Healy years ago. Things are just happening with the Claremont redevelopment, including the high rise complexes behind the Richard street light rail but if you were paying attention this was done back in 2011 when Fulop was a uknown councilman to the Greenville area.

I find it funny that during the dark Healy years nothing was developed in the Journal Square area except for a lot of BS about coming development. (hmm right before every election) Since Healy appointed Bob Antonicello JCRA director back in 2006 nothing “started in Journal Square”. (think Jersey Bounce) Odd now that Healy is gone development has taken off and it seems the ex- director of the Jersey City Redevelopment Agency has his hands in the many multi-million dollar Journal Square “deals”. Interesting very interesting.

Boggiano doesn't say he opposes the plan, he said he tentatively supports it but will wait to hear from residents in that area before making his support official.

“Baldwin Place has excellent access to public transportation as it is located only a five-minute walk to Journal Square. The Square contains the Journal Square Multimodal Transportation Center, which serves 56,000 riders on bus and PATH train each day. It is the busiest non- terminal station in the PATH system and from this station; riders can reach the World Trade Center or downtown Newark in 11 minutes and Midtown Manhattan in 20 minutes.”

It always amazed me how JScare (soon to be back to JSquare) lacked the spark for development especially after reading the line….” The Square contains the Journal Square Multimodal Transportation Center, which serves 56,000 riders on bus and PATH train each day.”

We have been let down for years and years and administration after administration. Finally things are getting ..mi mi mi...."started in Journal Square".

Four residential buildings planned for old Jersey City pasta factory site

By Terrence T. McDonald | The Jersey Journal
on June 19, 2015 at 1:33 PM, updated June 19, 2015 at 1:43 PM

JERSEY CITY — Four residential buildings, two of them 25-stories high, are slated for the old Mueller's pasta factory on Baldwin Avenue, another sign that the Downtown building boom is extending farther west.

The developer, Argent Ventures, wants to build 980 units on the 5.2-acre site, located less than half a mile from the Journal Square PATH station. The Mueller's site is largely vacant, aside from a four-story, 300,000-square-foot former manufacturing plant that will be demolished.
