I couldn't agree more, N4J. Like I said, I don't think this will go U/C for awhile, but if Steiner is aiming for a different market segment than the other redevelopers - perhaps Rutgers Business School, NJIT, and Seton Hall Law students - they definitely might try to push this project through the pipeline sooner rather than hold off.
btw - great photos. The second one truly shows how the retail with its lighting really brings the streetscape to life. I can't wait til there is more of that here.

What is planned for the warehouses along 280?

Do you mean the warehouses south of 280? If so, that's Heller Industrial's property where they should be starting heavy demo in a matter of a few weeks...

North of 280 , there Occupied at the current moment , but are there any plans to redevelop there?

Good question - I'm not sure if any plans have been released to the public, but perhaps with redevelopment plans popping out of nowhere every month now, we might definitely see a proposal for the redevelopment of at least one of those buildings this year. One of them (the sandstone colored one) has been fenced off for a few years now for some reason. I'd really like to see what might be on the drawing board for the Harrison Plaza site (where Wendy's/Auto Zone are)...that site is pretty readily redevelop-able since it's a combination of 1-story buildings and parking lot.

North of 280 is a healthy industrial area. Its mainly small manufacturers where many working class Harrisonians work. Among them a company that makes steel products (pots,pans, household hardware)It receives steel/metal coils on rail cars.

They actually have had the equipment onsite for a few weeks now at the site near Red Bull Arena, but this morning they finally fired up the rig to begin piling (they were most likely just waiting for permits). The site was bustling just after 7 AM; weather permitting, we might see some great progress in the next few weeks. I'm guessing they have the foundation poured and the building is really going vertical by the beginning of Spring.

Here's a photo of the mayor holding a rendering of the Riverbend building under construction (looks like it will be 5 stories all around):
