The first year lessees are coming up for renewal at the moment. The building started renting in September 2014, with a free month promotion, so this would be the usual churn of people leaving and coming as those 13-months leases come to an end in October and November.

Judging by what I am seeing, some people are moving out and others are moving right in after a few days. The only units not moving well are the three bedroom units. Surprising (to me) given their general lack of availability in the market. I guess there really is almost no market for large rental units.

THE RECORD

For new apartment hunters Kyle and Marielena Jasey, a vibrant city setting where they could walk to restaurants, shops and other neighborhood attractions topped their priority wish list. After looking at different options in Hoboken and Jersey City, the Jaseys decided that downtown Jersey City, which has blossomed with new cultural, retail and nightlife establishments, clearly fit the bill.

"Jersey City just has this great vibe to it, and it was obvious that you get a lot more for your money here than in Hoboken," said Kyle Jasey, who works in real estate financing. "We just needed to find the right apartment."

Rejecting several options due to a lack of amenities, an inconvenient location and proximity to seemingly never-ending construction noise, the couple discovered The Art House, a new luxury rental building in the City?s Powerhouse Arts District, and knew they had found their new home.

"It was the first place we walked into where we said ?this is perfect,?" said Marielena Jasey, a professional organizer. "We loved that it was much smaller and more intimate than most of the new buildings in the area. The apartments were beautiful, and the location was great. We looked at a few other buildings after first visiting The Art House, but nothing compared to it."

Well, it will be a true urban view... being able to look into your neighbor's and see what they are reading or watching on tv.

People complain about the lack of parking and the proliferation of gigantic towers throughout the city but to me, this block is the worst example of planning/zoning gone awry.

There will be no view once Phase 2 of this project finishes - there will be an even taller building behind it on Second Street.

In a city saturated with rental properties, The Shuster Group has ended a nearly decade-long drought of new condominiums in Jersey City with the launch of The Oakman, a luxury condominium building in the historic downtown Powerhouse Arts District.

Sales are underway for the new collection of 159 luxury residences. The homes are complemented by first-class amenities and services, and a vibrant location at 160 First Street amidst the artist-inspired neighborhood?s boutiques, galleries, restaurants and convenient public transportation to Manhattan.

Designed by Fogarty Finger Architects, The Oakman features a 15-story, industrial-inspired design that respects the fabric of the Powerhouse Arts District while providing a decidedly more intimate, boutique setting when compared with the monolithic towers that dot the city?s landscape.

The Oakman?s full suite of amenities and services also belie its size, with a well-rounded lifestyle offering that blends urban sophistication with sought-after privacy. An impressive outdoor rooftop offers views of iconic New York City buildings, including the Empire State Building and One World Trade Center, and features a landscaped rooftop terrace with a pool, BBQ area, sunbathing area, outdoor shower and an adjacent entertainment room with a fireplace and lounge with a kitchen. The full-service building also provides a 24-hour concierge, fully-equipped fitness center, private residents? lounge, library and business center and artistically-inspired, sky-lit Children?s playroom. Residents will also appreciate the building?s onsite parking garage with electric vehicle charging station.

Resized Image


The Oakman?s upscale residences will redefine luxury living in Jersey City with a collection of studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom residences ? including spectacular Penthouses ? featuring inspired living spaces and custom-designed finishes and appointments. Top-of-the-line kitchens boast Italian-made Pedini cabinets and appliances from prominent names such as Fisher-Paykel, KitchenAid, Bosch, Bertazzoni, Miele and Liebherr. Select homes also include balconies or private terraces. The exclusive collection of homes is currently priced from $700,000. The building has been granted a 20-year tax abatement by the City of Jersey City, which provides significant financial savings to buyers.

Provost Square is the series of towers built by Toll Brothers that starts at Morgan St and Marin Blvd. Then phase two will rise at Morgan between Provost and Warren Street. Last tower, phase three will go up on Bay Street between Provost and Marin Blvd. The rest of the hood is PAD.

I saw an ad for condos last week that called the neighborhood "Provost Square" so I guess that's what developers are going with now. Personally, I like "Powerhouse District" as a name even if we don't have any arts stuff there anymore.

Ord. 15.049 approved on Wednesday, not Ord. 15.105

The owner will most likely demolish or flip it.

The Juan Ribbon Machine Shop (currently the home of Parlay Studios) on Provost Street that extend entire block from First to Second Street is up for demolition after planning board decided back in 2011 to not save it if owner didn't want to.

Powerhouse District Redevelopment Plan is being amended again for this lot only - they are recommending replacing building with an eleven story non-industrial looking residential mid-rise, but in turn they will restore the Belgium block stone beneath Provost Street on that block.

Please complete the following survey. Be sure to fill-in comments as to why you voted the way you did. The details are important.

Survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LGD3PK3

Please read the documents related to this survey. They can be found at:
http://www.padnajc.org/wp-content/upl ... 015-03-17-for-council.pdf

http://www.padnajc.org/pad-redevelopm ... juan-ribbon-machine-shop/

This latest amendment to the Powerhouse Arts District Redevelopment Plan's First Reading was presented last week and passed introduction. Next week, April 22nd, the Second Reading is scheduled to occur - the public (you) has the opportunity to comment during this reading - and then city council will vote. There is no more discussion after that.

It sounds to me like JC needs some teeth in it's Landmarks legislation. I assume the machinations of developers have prevented this over the years, but what is holding back a popular outcry from achieving something similar?


doesnt the city own this property? so it's going to sue itself?

I'm not an expert on this stuff but it seems like designating and arts district is the best way to ensure there will never be arts there (or that the existing arts community will not be around much longer). Seems like it's more of a gimmick to sell luxury housing. So for the benefit of artists in JSQ let's hope an arts district is never designated there.

Cordish can be a wolf, tiger, lion or sheep for all i care. They NEED to do something about that warehouse NOW before it collapses and knockout the path power transformers or worse kill someone. If it needs to be a 100 story building to make it financially feasible so be it.

Right now this skeleton is unsafe and a dump. Everytime there is bad weather like the snowstorm we barely missed it's an accident waiting to happen, not to mention all the garbage that gets blown all over the neighborhood when there is wind.

It's so ridiculous they left a garbage dump in the middle of a residential area surrounded by high density condos.

Do something! level the damn warehouse and put a grass field.

These buildings were put a Landmarked List back in 2011. City Planning is unaware of any conversations of demolition.

Yeah the name is a farce at this point, a marketing gimmick more than reality. I know there are some artists at 150 bay but the heart of the creative community is not in that area any more. All of the JC arts events I attend are elsewhere, only exception is the open studio tours.

Where did you hear that 124-136 Bay Street will be torn down? This is the yellow building on Warren Street between Bay and Provost Streets, and grey building just east of 140 Bay. Acadia Scenic shop has been a long time tenant.
