    Nexis,

    nice pics. The optical illusions in some of those angles always amaze me, it seems like you can literally walk straight across into Manhattan. Makes the downtown seem even bigger than it is.

    Anyone know of any plans for that powerhouse?

    I agree with ianmac's skepticism about the Columbus tower redesign. Has Gene Kaufman ever produced a design that wasn't a steaming pile? The only question is whether it'll be just plain ugly and anti-urban, or whether it'll be aggressively ugly and anti-urban.

    Lloyd Goldman delivers latest blow to Jersey City’s art district

    From left: Lloyd Goldman and a rendering of 110 First Street

    The newest dispute surrounding development of Jersey City’s Powerhouse Arts District comes in the form of a Lloyd Goldman-backed 500-unit high-end development that, in its latest incarnation, would not be required to include affordable housing inside, the Wall Street Journal reported. However, some City Council members and locals say they think this development will prove to be final blow to a district that officials had promised to create as a safe haven for artists through the inclusion of cheap lofts.
    Negotiations are still on the table to keep the affordable housing option within the district, but a decision is still weeks away.
    “We’re an artists’ district by name only,” Kevin Pollack, who lives in the area and is on the board of the Powerhouse Arts District Neighborhood Association, told the Journal, “especially if we get rid of the affordable housing.”
    But according to Goldman, there will be affordable housing development, albeit offsite. He said his tower at 110 First Street would bring new development to a vacant area, as well as new residents, construction jobs and tax revenues that boost the economy. Originally, he had agreed to create 50 units of affordable housing at 110 First Street, half on-site and half off. But now, city officials said, he will contribute $2.5 million to construct 25 cheaper units off-site in the Heights neighborhoods. [WSJ]

    Luxury Jersey City development breaks ground

    From left: the groundbreaking and a rendering of 18 Park

    A new Jersey City, N.J. mixed-use development — 18 Park — broke ground today with Jersey City Mayor Jerramiah Healy in attendance, a statement from the developers said. The 422-unit luxury rental building will sit atop a new state-of-the-art facility for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Hudson County and is being developed by Ironstate Development and Kushner Real Estate Group.
    The 11-story building’s residential portion will offer upscale amenities such as full-service fitness center, outdoor swimming pool, landscaped outdoor deck and a children’s playroom in the residential portion. The non-profit Boys & Girls Club will have 34,000 square feet of classroom and recreational space.
    The building was designed in collaboration between HWKN Architects and Minno & Wasko Architects, the statement said.
    “This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity where the private sector, municipal officials and a non-profit organization were all able to come together to formulate a plan that truly benefits everyone involved,” said Gary Greenberg, executive director of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Hudson County, in the statement. The building, set to be complete in 2014, will replace the current home of the non-profit, which had fallen into disrepair.
    It’s not the first time Ironstate, one of New Jersey’s largest developers, and Kushner have worked together. They launched sales at 225 Grand, a 348-unit rental building down the street from 18 Park, in 2010 and leased it up in less than ten months. The Kushner Real Estate Group is run by Murray Kushner, not his more-maligned brother Charles, who was convicted of tax fraud and making illegal campaign contributions in 2005 and served time in federal prison.
    The developers told The Real Deal previously that rents at 18 Park would be on par with those at 225 Grand — around $36 per square foot. — Guelda Voien

    What a beautiful building this is - something of this caliber is long-overdue in Jersey City. Glad to see this added on this side of the Hudson! Now we just need more like this...

    I think it looks horrible, just a big cube with no relief.
