Manhattan Skyline Views, Trump Style
By ANTOINETTE MARTIN
Published: September 18, 2005
DONALD J. TRUMP is moving into Jersey City in a big way. He is set to announce this week that construction of Trump Plaza, a $415 million condominium project to include the two tallest residential towers in New Jersey, will begin in November - with occupancy projected to start in fall 2007.
Metro Homes of Hoboken will team up with the Trump Organization in building the project, which is also to include retailing space, parking and amenities for residents like a rooftop pool, fitness center, business center and private film theater.
Dean S. Geibel, who with his partner Paul E. Fried runs Metro Homes, said he initially pitched the idea to Mr. Trump. "We know he likes to do things that are big," Mr. Geibel said, "and this is really big. Plus, it will be highly visible from Manhattan, and so it's right up Trump's alley."
Trump Plaza will be set on a riverside plot at Washington Boulevard and Bay Street, and the triangular design of its two towers, 50 and 55 stories tall and rising from a seven-story base, will permit views of the Manhattan skyline across the Hudson River from almost every apartment, Mr. Geibel said.
The 55-story tower will have 445 condos; the 50-story tower will provide 417. The 328,658-square-foot, seven-story base will house a garage with 696 parking spaces and 23,000 square feet of retailing space.
The two-story building lobby will be "classic Trump, extravagant and classy," Mr. Geibel said.
The condos will range in size from studios to three-bedroom units, offering from 750 to 2,224 square feet.
Neither Mr. Geibel nor the Trump Organization specified a price range for the condos but said more details would be forthcoming on Thursday at a formal announcement of the project.
Currently, the tallest residential building in New Jersey stands only two blocks away from the Trump Plaza site. It is the 40-story Marbella apartment building at 425 Washington Boulevard.
The state's tallest building is also nearby, the 781-foot Goldman Sachs office tower at 30 Hudson Street.
For Immediate Release
DONALD TRUMP, DEAN GEIBEL ANNOUNCE PLANS FOR LUXURY CONDOS IN TALLEST RESIDENTIAL TOWERS IN NEW JERSEY* * *SEPTEMBER 22, 2005 - Trump Organization CEO Donald Trump, Metro Homes Founder Dean Geibel and his partner Paul Fried today announced construction will begin on Trump Plaza: Jersey City, a $415 million condominium project that will include the two tallest residential towers in the state of New Jersey. Construction will begin this year with occupancy beginning in November 2007, Trump and Geibel said.
Trump Plaza: Jersey City Towers Include Condos, Retail and Parking
Trump Plaza, at Washington and Bay Streets, will include a 531,500 square-foot tower, topping out at 55 stories, with 445 condominium homes, and a 481,283 square-foot tower, reaching 50 stories, with 417 condominium homes. The towers will rise from a 328,658 square-foot, seven-story base, housing a garage with 696 parking spaces and 23,000 square feet of prime retail space. The base will accommodate a business center, home theater screening room, a private 8,000 square foot fitness center, a rooftop plaza with an outdoor heated swimming pool, a private landscaped yard, children's play area and enclosed basketball court.
"The addition of this luxury structure to Jersey City's Gold Coast is a testament to the attraction of our city as a destination for people to live, work, and raise families. We are pleased to welcome Mr. Trump and Mr. Geibel as developers of this project whose shared vision contributes to the continued growth and success of our downtown revitalization," said Jersey City's Mayor Jerramiah T. Healy.
"We are honored to be working with Donald Trump to create a world-class living experience in Jersey City with its incomparable views of the world's most famous skyline, outstanding amenities and convenient transportation links. I also want to thank Mayor Healy for his efforts to create an environment where Trump Plaza is possible." said Geibel, whose Hoboken-based Metro Homes LLC is the developer of the project.
"This is a quality project, worthy of the Trump name, rising in one of the most exciting places on the planet today - Jersey City," said Trump. "The Trump Organization participated in the design and invested in the project, and we will manage Trump Plaza to ensure that the people who live here will fully enjoy this great urban lifestyle."
Because of the positioning and triangular design of the residential towers, most units will have Manhattan skyline views.
The lobby will be an extravagant two-story structure, serving as a statement piece for the building and will be attended by a 24-hour professional concierge service. The studios, one-, two-, and three bedroom residential units will range in size from 750 to 2,224 square-feet. The units will have state of the art kitchens and appliances, marble bathrooms and distinctive wood floors. Comparable properties are two of the Trump Organization's Westside Manhattan properties - 200 Riverside Boulevard at Trump Place and 240 Riverside Boulevard at Trump Place.
Working with Mayor Healey and other elected officials in Jersey City and Hudson County, Metro Homes secured property tax abatements which will be passed on to condominium owners.
Metro Homes LLC presently is developing Gull's Cove, a community of 431 condominium residences that is part of Jersey City's Liberty Harbor North redevelopment effort; and The Esperanza of Asbury Park, 224 condominium residences in Asbury Park's celebrated oceanfront redevelopment district.
Panepinto Properties and The Applied Companies, the original owners and developers of the project, remain as partners in the development. Trump Plaza was designed by the Manhattan-based DeWitt Tishman Architects. Bovis Lend Lease will construct the project.
###Metro Homes LLC was founded in 1993 by real estate entrepreneur Dean S. Geibel. He and his partner, Paul E. Fried, manage one of New Jersey's most integrated and well-balanced real estate firms specializing in urban development and revitalization. The Hoboken-based company has built hundreds of condominium residences in Hudson County and is in the forefront of New Jersey's "smart growth" development.Rubenstein Associates, Inc.

Thanks injcsince81. I was wondering what the building would look like and I'm not impressed at all. Lets hope the actual building looks better then the rendering.
^ These 2 Trump stumps look like left-overs from Trump Place: dull, unimaginative, bleccch .....
^^ The architect is DeWitt Tishman Architects, LLP.
Emporis has 5 of their buildings, all in Hoboken and Jersey City: http://www.emporis.com/en/cd/cm/?id=104236
Nothing special in any of them. Utilitarian and mainstream to a fault.
I know they are not the best, but hell they are Trump, all of his buildings leave something to be desired, but I do not see him building in Brooklyn, or LIC so NYC just shove it and be happy for us.
^ If that's what you want then you're welcome to it (them).
Too bad those of us on this side of the Hudson will have to look at them, though.
I never said they were beautiful and most buildings look better when they are built then they do in the renderings so I have hope. Just be respectful and stop looking down at us cause Jersey City has stopped takin crap (for lack of a better word) from NY long time ago. I mean if JC wasn't an important city he would not build here.
