    NICE updates and as always, great to see JCMAN... live only a few blocks from the NJCU development and looking forward to it! The new building off 440 was really completed fast... going to be so nice to have West Side up to 440 connected trough this development and the huge Bayfront project that will transform the area.

    Wow....talk about a massive Hudson County update. Not to go off the topic of JC, but anyone know if anything is U/C in Union City & North Bergen? Union City was pretty hot during the last boom - I remember reading about what I believe was a David Childs (or some starchitect) -designed building on the edge of the Palisades overlooking midtown Manhattan.

    Jersey City residents ready to ride as Citi Bike racks are installed around town

    Citi Bike stations at in Jersey City on Monday, September 7, 2015. Michael Dempsey | The Jersey Journal

    JERSEY CITY - Jersey City residents seem ready to ride as bike racks for the city's new Citi Bike bike-share program are being installed around town.

    "I think it's a pretty neat idea and I will use them," said Alex Fitzhugh this morning as he passed the Citi Bike bicycle racks at Hamilton Park in Downtown Jersey City.

    Fizthugh, who recently moved to Jersey City from Tennessee for a job in Manhattan, said, "I'd ride it to the PATH station. I go there every morning and there's a drop off near the station."

    George Bullis was strolling with his beagle "Bagel" when he said he has his own bike, but he knows that people in Manhattan "definitely use it."

    "I think it will increase our property value, too," he added. "The only bad thing is it is going to make it tight on the sidewalk" once the bikes are in their racks. He said a neighbor has already signed up.

    The program will launch this month with 350 bikes at more than 30 stations throughout the city, providing a new, environmentally friendly, healthy and affordable 24/7 transportation option for Jersey City. The city has added 22 new miles of bike lanes over the past two years and bike share represents the next big step in creating a more bike-friendly city, city officials said.

    Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop said Downtown will have 13 stations, the most of any of the city's six wards, and the Heights will have seven. The Journal Square area will see five — three within a block of the PATH hub — four will go to the West Side and there will be three each in Greenville and Bergen-Lafayette.

    Jersey City's Citi Bike memberships will be $149 annually and membership will also allow access to bikes in New York.

    When Citi Bike launched in New York in 2012, the roughly 400 locations were located mostly in midtown and Lower Manhattan. This month, Citi Bike will install nearly 80 new stations in Brooklyn, 12 in Long Island City and one in Queens.


    Citi Bike Jersey City will launch in September and plans to install bike-share stations in 35 locations throughout the city. Courtesy of Jersey City

    does anyone know if Ironstate still plans a total of 3 Url buildings? If so, would they be located such that they would block the view of Manattan from Trump and Trump2?

    Ironstate is still doing 3 URL towers. The other two will be done in a second phase. It is similar to the 3 tower Journal Square project. This one is being done first because it is isolated from the rest. The other two share a base.

    Modera Lofts is not being powerwashed. They are applying a thin layer of new brick over the old brick to protect and seal it. It is quite noticeable up close.

    Default 99 Hudson

    99 Hudson had their building permits approved on August 12, 2015 for footing and foundation work. It's status is open. Core sampling rigs were seen on site atleast 3 different times in the month of August.

    Thanks JCMAN for the 99 Hudson update.... hopefully it does mean we will soon hear of a groundbreaking date and the parking lot will be cleared for good.

    Anytime. Yeah the file was last updated on August 31st so I'm hoping for a ground breaking within the coming month. In other news the new UNICO Tower on Marin Blvd got its 20 year abatement approved and per the abatement approval there will 20% affordable housing included on-site similar to other new developments that have been recently approved and broken ground. Another benefit is that yet another surface lot bites the dust.

    Council OKs 20-year tax break for Downtown Jersey City tower

    A rendering of a proposed 400-unit residential development proposed for Marin Boulevard in Jersey City. (KRE Group)

    JERSEY CITY — A 20-year tax break for a 17-story residential building proposed for the Hamilton Park neighborhood won final approval from the City Council tonight.

    The $163 million project, which has already won a $40 million state tax break for developer KRE Group, will add nearly 400 units on a parking lot near Unico Towers, at Ninth Street and Marin Boulevard. Construction is expected to begin this month.

    The city initially intended to award KRE a 30-year tax abatement, but the deal was amended to 20 years tonight. Asked why, Corporation Counsel Jeremy Farrell told The Jersey Journal to ask Deputy Mayor Marcos Vigil, who declined to explain.

    The deal was adopted 6-2, with Councilman Michael Yun and Councilwoman Candice Osborne voting against. Yun said he opposed the length of the abatement, while Osborne said she essentially supports it but voted no because the abatement is "not consistent" with the new tax abatement policy the mayor unveiled last week, which sets a maximum abatement term of 15 years for the neighborhood where the new KRE tower will be constructed.

    Mayor Steve Fulop, a longtime opponent of long-term tax breaks for towers near the Waterfront, has argued that the abatements are worthwhile if developers pledge to build on-site affordable housing. Twenty percent of the KRE tower will be affordable for households that make between 50 and 80 percent of Hudson County's median household income, $58,442.

    Council President Rolando Lavarro echoed Fulop tonight when voting in favor of the KRE abatement (Ord. 15.120).

    "I think it's a benefit for everyone," Lavarro said. "I'm more than happy to stand by it and stand for it because I think this is import if we're going to see Jersey City moving forward."
