I noticed a vacant store front a year or so ago in handsome brick building at Liberty and St Paul's. Not sure what had been there previously (there used to be a bar around there that closed about 15 years ago but I think was another spot) with a nice big window and corner location it felt like something should be there. I noticed some work happening there this year and finally figured out what is happening - some type of eatery:

Plans for 3 major new Journal Square towers move forward

By Terrence T. McDonald | The Jersey Journal
on August 17, 2016 at 9:48 AM, updated August 17, 2016 at 12:23 PM

JERSEY CITY — Donald Trump's son-in-law is about to put his stamp on Journal Square.

Jared Kushner and KABR Group are proceeding with plans to build three residential towers on two lots near the Journal Square PATH hub, towers that will include a total of 2,466 luxury residential units, 103,784 square feet of retail space and 224,539 square feet of offices.

The plans, given unanimous approval by the Planning Board last night, include a radical transformation of the old headquarters of The Jersey Journal into an open-air retail market and public plaza fronting a 72-story tower.

Chris Langston, chair of the planning board, hailed both projects, calling the one for 30 Journal Square — the old home of The Jersey Journal — "absolutely brilliant.

All that said, I hope the area develops as proposed and JSQ in general continues to see a nice boost in the coming years.
agreed. what a colossal waste of money if we are just talking about 200 feet. wouldn't it be cheaper to build an enclosed walkway with moving walkways to jsq?


That's a great idea!

Plan would bring nearly 500 units to old Puccini's site in Jersey City
By Terrence T. McDonald | The Jersey Journal

on July 29, 2016 at 3:05 PM

JERSEY CITY — A new artist's rendering shows how the site of a former industrial plant and iconic Jersey City eatery will be remade into a nearly 500-unit residential development a half-mile from the Journal Square PATH hub.

Avenir, located at Broadway and West Side Avenue, would include 486 units of market-rate residential housing and over 25,000 square feet of retail space in five buildings ranging from three to eight stories, plus 384 parking spaces. The planning board gave final approval to some of the site last week.

The development will be located on a four-acre site in the city's Marion section that once included Puccini's Restaurant, a West Side mainstay and political hangout for 31 years before closing last year to make way for Avenir.

I found the menu scant and the curry kind of watery, but it wasn't the worst I've had. I'll try something else next time. It's always packed when I walk by, so it's definitely popular.

Port Authority OKs deal bringing Starbucks to Journal Square PATH station

By Terrence T. McDonald | The Jersey Journal
on June 30, 2016 at 6:43 PM

JERSEY CITY — If you take the PATH from Journal Square and need a place to get your morning upside down triple grande extra vanilla caramel macchiato with two Splendas, you're in luck.

A deal that will bring Starbucks to the Journal Square transportation hub was approved today by Port Authority of New York and New Jersey commissioners, giving the gourmet coffee giant its first proper Jersey City location outside of the Downtown area.

The bi-state agency touted the move as part of its efforts to "reinvigorate" the PATH hub, citing the opening of restaurants PJ Ryan's Squared, which debuted in the transportation center in May, and Chickpea, which opened there last July.

The 2,079-square-foot Starbucks location will be adjacent to the PJ Ryan's, facing Kennedy Boulevard, and will include an outdoor seating area. It is expected to open around February 2017, soon after the first tower of the nearby Journal Squared development is scheduled to welcome its first residents.

Starbucks headed to Journal Square PATH station

By Terrence T. McDonald | The Jersey Journal
on June 24, 2016 at 2:40 PM, updated June 24, 2016 at 3:09 PM

JERSEY CITY — Starbucks lovers may soon be able to get their Frapuccino fix at the Journal Square PATH station.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is scheduled to finalize a lease with the gourmet coffee giant at the agency's commissioners meeting next week, a deal that would give Starbucks its first proper Jersey City location outside of the Downtown.

The move is another signal of the changes coming to the center of the city, which city officials for decades have attempted to revitalize. Five towers of luxury housing are planned for the lots surrounding the PATH hub, while another is slated for across the street, on the former site of The Jersey Journal's headquarters.

Poll: Should Journal Square developments continue to get tax breaks?

JJ comment:Quote:
“Last year, The Jersey Journal reported that the 100-plus city properties with long-term tax breaks..”

** ****
YES Journal Square should continue to get abatements. Gee long neglected Journal Square is finally getting some much needed love and now abatements for it are in question? What’s the score as of today Downtown 100 abatements and Journal Square around 5? Abatements made Downtown what it is today a great destination. Journal Square abatements will make Journal Square the Jewel of Jersey City once again. Keep em coming to the Square and to other sections of JC as Mayor Fulop said to attract developers to those other sections outside of DT)

25-year tax break for 40-unit building in Jersey City up for council OK

By Terrence T. McDonald | The Jersey Journal
on May 10, 2016 at 5:01 PM, updated May 10, 2016 at 5:02 PM

JERSEY CITY — A 25-year tax break for a six-story, 40-unit residential building planned for just outside of Journal Square is up for final adoption by the City Council tomorrow.

The $11.5 million project, known as Journal Square Lofts, comes courtesy of developer Matt Weinreich, of Hopkins Group, which was also behind nearby Kennedy Lofts, on Newkirk Street. Journal Square Lofts will be inside an existing building at 2853-2857 Kennedy Boulevard, behind the Landmark Loew's Jersey Theatre.

I noticed on Saturday that the PJ Ryan's in JSQ was open - not sure if it was a soft opening but there were definitely a few people at the bar. Also, I noticed several tables of people at the new Noodle Fan yesterday.

Jersey City in talks to bring art museum to Journal Square

By Terrence T. McDonald | The Jersey Journal
on April 12, 2016 at 3:55 PM, updated April 12, 2016 at 4:02 PM

Jersey City is eyeing a building adjacent to the Journal Square PATH station as a location for a new art museum.

The city is in preliminary talks with Hudson County officials to purchase the four-story building at 25 Journal Square, also known as Pathside and owned by Hudson County Community College. The plan is for an expanded version of the Jersey City Museum, which essentially shuttered in 2010.

One other JSQ thing I have been wondering is what if anything is happening above the JSQ pub (I think it was Hotel on the Square). Last June there was a sign about an auction of the building but I never heard of any outcome or plans for the building.



ChrisNJ I was going to answer your other post but forget. Long post but maybe has some interesting titbits……

Yeah there was a Foot Locker up the Square I think around year 2000 and I am pretty sure it happened to be in a store front in that beautiful 6 story building that is being renovated. That building had a decorative metal screen covering the entire 6 story front for decades. Maybe it was a good thing helping preserve it.

The Hotel on the Square was where that big empty lot is in the heart of Journal Square. It was ripped down many years ago along with a Mc Donald’s and Hallmark to supposedly make way for the two Harwood towers that never came to be. But another developer is about to start a project on the lot.

The Journal Square Pub building 50 Journal Square looks like it is still owned by the same owner since 1999 and their taxes are paid up… JOURNAL SQUARE REALTY CORP. Yeah there are always rumors about that building being auctioned or developed.

The first JSquared tower is supposed to open before the end of this year. Reading the descriptions of its amenities it sounds like the rents will be high. ”rentals with upscale finishes and appointments, plus stunning views" “outdoor swimming pool, full-service fitness center, golf simulator and a children's playroom” “A 2,000 square-foot space on the 53rd floor will also serve as an entertainment space”

The buildings on the old VW / Chevrolet property (3075 Kennedy Blvd and behind on Skillman Ave) are owned by the same guy. An Indian businessman who has projects all over Journal Square. The 3 buildings are named after cars. I just can’t find or remember the names. Maybe one is Caprice. Cool idea considering the history of the spot.

Yeah the crowd at PJ Rayan’s will be interesting. I guess it will be a big hangout for the JSquared tower crowd. People don’t realize this but a lot of old-timer families still live/own in the Journal Square area and they like I have said in other posts been dying for a decent place to go eat and drink. I’ll be there.

Yup 3 Journal Square (by Chase) on the old Bowl property will be 13 stories of rentals. Maybe they are going slow because they are adding extra sound proofing.(lol) The train noise takes some time getting used to.

Speaking of the Mana Contemporary area there is also a 24 unit building going up on the old Joey Starr’s lot on Newark Avenue. Someone should have saved their neon hotdog sign. Also in the area near Broadway a 130 unit apartment building with 4 stores was recently approved. An unconfirmed rumor is that the White Castle property was sold for millions for a future tower. Say it ain’t so.

I’m surprised that 25 Senate has a shuttle to Journal Square. Lazy millennials (lol) I have friends who used to walk from the end of Marion to the Square PATH every day.

Yvonne, why you always got to be so negative? Don't you ever get tired or depressed from being negative all the time? Does Jersey City do anything right in your eyes? Sad woman, I'll pray for you.


Once the land is gone you do not get it back, sorry I don't agree. There should be more open space. In the past, that was part of the requirements for large developments but we are allowing developers to dictate design.


What if the open space takes up street parking spots? You so passionately are against the tiny Newark Avenue Pedestrian Plaza which the many many families that utilize it would call open space.


The what ifs, do not count. Journal Square is one area of the city that should have open space. Even NYC with all of its development all has open space including the new World Trade Center.

It's a shame that so much of this development is just rentals. We could really use more condos in the area.

The Noodlefan sign is up! It is opposite where Mister Gusto is.

Also, this development is apparently under construction - http://jerseydigs.com/adaptive-reuse- ... s-lofts-to-2851-jfk-blvd/

Has anyone else never noticed this beautiful building behind the shopfronts?!

I did not know about Modells coming to Journal Square (wasn't there a footlocker for a few years somewhat recently) but here are my observations/questions of the past few weeks around Journal Square:

1. The PJ Ryan's 2 looks pretty close to ready - hopefully that would be imminent. It is a big space and I can't quite fathom the crowd it will attract - maybe those who want a dive bar will continue at the Journal Sq Pub and those who don't will try PJ Ryan's. Looking at the space in front of it I also wonder if there might be some outside seating (although not much of a view).

2. Most of the windows are installed on the first Journal Square tower - I wonder if this will be completed and people moving in by year end? Very curious to see the prices and the people that pay would pay them.

3. 3075 Kennedy Blvd (a few blocks up from the square next to the school) looks like it has some people living in it but not sure if the lobby/ground floor are completed as there is still a construction fence in front of the property. There are new buildings behind this one that also seemed to be getting finished slowly - not sure if this is the same owner/complex.

4. I tried the Noodle Fan in the heights with my family last Saturday and enjoyed the food/service/decent ambiance. Not sure when the one in JSQ will be open but if it is on par with one in heights then would be good addition to neighborhood.

5. The building next to the Chase Bank (I think 3 JSQ) is now 7 stories and I think heading to 13 stories. It started out slowly building on top of the parking garage but seems like it is moving at a good pace now.

6. I have seen the 25 Senate shuttle van the past few weeks so those apts must be getting rented out. I have noticed over the past year a smattering of artist types exiting JSQ in the mornings (presumably headed towards Mana Contemporary area and presumable coming from a more expensive place to live) so maybe some more of these will try living in the area A ModCup was planned to open there I thought this month but not sure when?
