    Thumbs up WBL Moves HQ to JC

    Lending firm leaves Manhattan, cuts ribbon on new Jersey City headquarters

    After securing the approval for a 10-year, $16.8 million Grow New Jersey award from the Economic Development Authority in February, small business lending firm World Business Lenders has formally left Manhattan for New Jersey, cutting the ribbon Wednesday on its new corporate headquarters in Jersey City.

    Atop the 33rd floor of 101 Hudson St. near Exchange Place, WBL’s new office features more than 35,000 square feet of space with panoramic views of the Hudson River and Manhattan skyline.

    Founded in 2011 in New York, WBL offers branches nationwide, with locations in Georgia, California, Connecticut, Florida and Texas.

    CEO Doug Naidus said the move will help the company realize some of the “bold ambitions” he has for its future.

    “World Business Lenders is committed to enhancing the vitality and sustainability of small businesses across the country, and we are thrilled to contribute to the growth of Jersey City as a haven for commerce,” Naidus said. “By continuing to increase jobs, we are enthusiastic about growing our company while adding to the momentum of this tremendous city. We are delighted to call Jersey City our new home.”

    As part of its relocation, WBL plans to bring 225 full-time jobs to Jersey City by the end of the year and says it is actively working with Mayor Steven Fulop’s administration to address the needs of local small businesses.

    The company credits the EDA steering it across the river. At the time of the award approval, WBL was said to also be considering an alternative site in Queens.

    “The end of our lease in Manhattan presented an opportunity to explore other options to accommodate our rapid growth,” said Naidus. “The Grow N.J. program helped to make moving to New Jersey possible. We are excited for the company’s next chapter here in this sophisticated, ideally-situated city.”

    The EDA estimates that WBL’s relocation will yield a net benefit of over $85 million back to the state over 20 years.

    “The Grow N.J. program was designed to help New Jersey compete with other locations that are attractive for businesses looking to expand or relocate,” EDA CEO Melissa Orsen said. “We are delighted to see WBL joining the ranks of companies that recognize all that New Jersey has to offer in terms of location and financial industry talent.”

    With Manhattan clearly visible from the podium at Wednesday’s event, U.S. Rep. Donald Payne Jr. (D-Newark) joked that Naidus had finally come to his senses regarding business location.

    “I’m glad that he decided to come on the right side of the river,” Payne Jr. said, tongue-in-cheek. “The correct side of the river.”

    Payne Jr. added that he felt it was important not to lose sight of the work WBL does, providing small businesses with the loans needed to operate, amidst the excitement of the ribbon cutting event.

    “This business of lending really is what’s needed,” Payne Jr. said.

    Fulop, in a statement, said WBL was “a great addition to our Jersey City business community.”

    “Helping small businesses thrive has been one of the guiding priorities of my administration, which makes World Business Lenders’ relocation to Jersey City even more rewarding,” Fulop said. “Not only will this mean 225 new jobs for Jersey City, but we are also welcoming a company whose mission fits so well with what we’re trying to accomplish.”

    Earlier this month, Jersey City continued its strong record of securing EDA incentive approvals, as five potential city-based projects were approved for over $86 million in awards.

    WBL’s award also isn’t the most recent approval for space at 101 Hudson St. In March, the EDA approved a 10-year, $8 million Grow New Jersey award for the United States Fire Insurance Company to also consider occupying over 35,000 square feet there.

    Jersey City paints over controversial Monopoly board mural



    By Terrence T. McDonald | The Jersey Journal
    Email the author | Follow on Twitter
    on July 27, 2016 at 7:01 AM, updated July 27, 2016 at 8:25 AM

    The controversy surrounding Jersey City's Monopoly board mural is as never-ending as a game of Monopoly.
    The mural, painted on the Newark Avenue pedestrian plaza by Gary Wynans, a.k.a. Mr. Abillity, came under fire first from the local police union, then from a group of city activists who demanded the city alter a portion they found objectionable. When the city made the change against the artist's wishes, free speech advocates cried foul.
    In the latest wrinkle, Wynans alleges in a new interview the city asked him to add a reference to local developers Paul and Eric Silverman to the mural after it was nearly completed.
    This may be the last time the Monopoly board makes headlines — city workers painted over it yesterday morning. City spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill told The Jersey Journal the city had previously planned to repaint that side of the pedestrian plaza, saying, "Obviously artwork painted on a public street is not permanent."
    Now, instead of the 33-foot mural, that portion of the plaza is painted green, and someone has added a chalk message aimed at Mayor Steve Fulop: "CENSORED — BROOKE HANSON (THANKS FULOP)." Hansson is the official who oversees the city's mural program.
    The episode has artists who live locally and elsewhere chiding the city for its oversight of the three-year-old mural program and urging city officials to change course if it wants to recruit big-name artists to contribute.
    "I can't imagine most serious artists are going to accept the potential that the city can sort of step in and alter things based on whims or a couple of complaints," said Hrag Vartanian, co-founder and editor in chief of art site Hyperallergic. "It's sort of sad, and it tells me that a place like Jersey City isn't ready for serious art in a public forum."
    Wynans started painting the mural before Memorial Day. On his final day, he told the National Coalition Against Censorship in an interview posted online Friday, he was approached by a man named Paul who asked if his company could get a shout out on the mural. Wynans said he told him no, then said he received a call from Hansson asking if "we can incorporate Charles & Co. on the board." Charles & Co. is the latest residential development from the Silverman brothers, located across the street from City Hall.
    "At this point the butting of heads had peaked and no rational discussion could take place," Wynans told the NCAC, adding, "you know who's really in charge of your fine city."
    On Friday, Morrill declined to confirm whether the conversation with Hansson and Wynans took place. If it did, Morrill said, that would be "highly inappropriate." A request for comment from Paul Silverman was not returned. Hansson deferred all questions to Morrill.
    The city will implement a new board to review all murals planned for the mural program, according to Morrill. The new board, scheduled to be approved by the council in September, will include local artists and will "make sure there is a process in place," Morrill said.
    Daonne Huff, gallery coordinator for Rutgers University's Mason Gross School of the Arts, worked for three years with Brooklyn-based public-art organization Groundswell. Huff said a board of local artists is a good start, adding that the board should also include residents who live in communities where new murals are proposed.
    Huff said the city moving forward should be mindful of whether a particular piece of art is appropriate for a neighborhood as well as the artist's freedom of expression.
    "Art's role is to create conversation," she said. "If you whitewash it, you whitewash the conversation that's happening."

    "OBVIOUSLY ART PAINTED ON STREET ISN'T PERMANENT"
    -What an elitist insult of intelligence!
    Sure, the city had planned to paint a green square at that very spot!

    Great news - the Fulop administration is basically implying in this article that if Fulop is elected governor, he'll get the Port Authority to build a Marion PATH stop!

    Plan would bring nearly 500 units to old Puccini's site in Jersey City



    By Terrence T. McDonald | The Jersey Journal

    A new artist's rendering shows how the site of a former industrial plant and iconic Jersey City eatery will be remade into a nearly 500-unit residential development a half-mile from the Journal Square PATH hub. Avenir, located at Broadway and West Side Avenue, would include 486 market-rate apartments and over 25,000 square feet of retail space in five buildings ranging from three to eight stories, plus 384 parking spaces. The planning board gave final approval to some of the site last week.
    The development will be located on a four-acre site in the city's Marion section that once included Puccini's Restaurant, a West Side mainstay and political hangout for 31 years before closing last year to make way for Avenir.
    The portion of West Side Avenue between Broadway and the PATH rail tracks that line the site's northern border would be turned into a pedestrian plaza. Archtect Dean Marchetto, who helped to design Avenir, said there are discussions to install an elevated walkway over the tracks that would bring pedestrians to Mana Contemporary on Newark Avenue.
    "Linking it over to the Mana really could create a little arts district down here," Marchetto said.


    The site would comprise four buildings on the east side of West Side Avenue, while on the west side would be a 17,500-square-foot building housing 424 units. The largest building would include ground-floor retail space lining Broadway, plus art gallery space and murals facing the PATH tracks.

    Construction on the smaller buildings may begin in the spring, but building the largest one may be two years out as city officials investigate whether the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey would build a long-rumored Marion PATH stop at the site (PATH rail tracks run along its northern border). If the PATH stop can be built there, the largest building would have to be set back an additional 30 feet from the tracks.

    City spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill confirmed the city hopes to get a PATH stop at the site.

    "While we know it probably won't happen in the next year, we are hopeful that the next governor will commit the dollars towards a PATH stop," Morrill said.

    Morrill's boss, Mayor Steve Fulop, is widely seen as a top contender for the Democratic nomination for governor in 2017.

    Avenir is one of a number of real-estate projects set for Jersey City's west side, including a massive development two miles south on West Side Avenue, on the New Jersey City University campus. Closer to the Puccini's site, developer Frank Peraza is converting a convent near St. Aloysius into 16 units, plus constructing an adjacent five-story building with 54 units.

    Amerestate Holdings purchased the Puccini's site, which included seven separate properties, for $19.5 million in 2015.

    Editorial: Hudson County is model for economic growth
    July 24, 2016 at 3:00 AM


    Harborside Plaza II in Jersey City. - (MACK-CALI REALTY CORP.)

    It's not always easy to find positive business news in New Jersey, what with our high taxes, political shenanigans and high cost of living. But when you need something to feel good about, our commercial real estate market is usually a dependable place to start.

    Nowhere is that more true than Hudson County, which is increasingly finding itself the belle of the ball, with companies in New York City increasingly looking west as they consider their own real estate costs in Manhattan. It’s a fable we’ve long been told would come true someday, and while it’s too soon to say that day has come, the signs are very encouraging.

    Take last week’s report from Newmark Grubb Knight Frank, which said surging demand was helping to put a dent in the vacancy rate, now south of 13 percent and with rising asking rents increasing to nearly $37 a square foot. That’s driven in no small part by proximity to mass transit in cities such as Hoboken and Jersey City, which are clearly driving the bus here, and we’ve got a preview of what they might offer in the future. Earlier this month, the Economic Development Authority awarded more than $80 million to companies to entice them to relocate to, or grow their operations in, Jersey City; the largest, Omnicom Group, would bring 415 full-time jobs across the river if the company decides to make the move. Meanwhile, accounting giant EY would get nearly $40 million if it moves a chunk of its operations from Times Square to River Street in Hoboken.

    Jersey City, Hoboken are the model; it’s time for other areas to figure out how to replicate their great success.

    This, of course, is an example of incentives done right. Those are some big dollars the EDA is poised to hand out, but the kind of jobs that would be retained — advertising and marketing professionals and accountants — would strongly benefit the state’s economy, with new high-wage earners with the spending power to live in all the new high-rise projects being built along the water in Hudson and also coastal Bergen County, such as Fort Lee’s Hudson Lights project.

    It’s also why we use this space to discuss the dangers of underinvestment in transportation. While these employees may no longer work in Manhattan, they would obviously rely upon access to the Big Apple to effectively do their jobs — not to mention accountants, who often travel to visit clients. Crumbling rail and road infrastructure will prohibit firms from making moves like this if stunts like the governor’s ill-advised gas tax showdown and road project shutdowns continue.

    Can other counties make a play for New York firms? It’s premature to say, but it would be an encouraging win for the EDA if some of these heavy hitters made the leap.

    Goodness, the PATH train is already busting at the seams during the morning rush hour it's barely usable. And with JC's ludicrous projected population increase...
    I've never seen a train line so unbearable. And I catch the 4/5 subway trains every morning.

    The Port Authority claims it'll be increasing rush-hour service 20% in 2018, after CBTC is installed. And in the next 5-10 years they'll finish expanding the NWK-WTC line station platforms to allow for 10-car trains, increasing capacity on that line by another 43% (some of this capacity can then be shifted to the 33ST-JSQ line by running more trains on that line and fewer on the NWK-WTC line). This Marion project probably won't be completed before that.

    These changes should be enough to absorb ridership growth for a while. The Port Authority should also follow the MTA's lead and start buying trains with open gangways between the cars. That would increase capacity by another 8%-10%. There's no plans to do this yet, though.

    All in all I'd say that stopping development isn't the way to keep the PATH train from bursting at the seams. If anything, the Port Authority is always doing the bare minimum to ensure the PATH is barely below full capacity. If ridership hadn't increased, they never would've made the improvements that they're making, and the system would feel just as full, but with much lower ridership and worse service.

    Default WSJ Spotlights Journal Squared

    The 53-story Journal Squared rental tower is expected to open this winter, according to the Wall Street Journal. As reported earlier, the $280 million building is the first of three towers, the latter of which will rise 70 and 60 stories. All three towers will be linked at ground level with landscaped plazas that lead into the JSQ PATH station.

    The WSJ also mentions that the PATH station will get a much-needed redesign courtesy of HWKN, Handel Architects, and Melillo+Bauer Associates. Per the WSJ, it will include a covered walkway that cuts straight through the tower’s ground level.

    Amenities at Journal Squared will include a double-height fitness center, outdoor pool, and a 53rd-floor lounge for residents (which will likely have some killer views). Studios are expected to start at $1,900/month. —WSJ

    JERSEY CITY -- The Whiton Street building that once housed All Saints School has been transformed into 25 condominiums in the Bergen-Lafayette section of the city.

    During a ribbon cutting ceremony Wednesday afternoon, officials touted the new Saint Lofts, which brings four affordable housing units and 21 market rate condos to what they described as a thriving neighborhood.

    Each of the 14-one bedroom and 11-two bedroom units have already been sold. Prices range from $114,000 to $400,000. The project, is a partnership between New Jersey Community Capital, City National Bank, and the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Agency.

    Additionally, the city provided $387,000 in Affordable Housing Trust Fund money.

    "This project represents the type of public-private partnership that helps build communities and grow neighborhoods," Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop said. "We are pleased to support this type of adaptive reuse that encourages home ownership and converts a vacant building into a home for dozens of families."

    The building kept it's original frame with extensive renovations completed inside, including the addition of a second floor that was once an open space part of the school's gymnasium. The stairs from the school remain in place, along with a stained glass window on the front of the building.

    New Jersey state Sen. Sandra B. Cunningham (D-Jersey City), New Jersey Community Capital President Wayne Meyer, City National Bank Chairman and CEO Preston Pinkett III, and NJ HMFA Executive Director Anthony Marchetta, all attended the ceremony.

    Desks from the former school along with an old clock face are expected to be added as decor for inside the building.

    Thumbs up 90 Columbus Secures Financing

    HFF Secures $155.83 Million Financing for Development of Luxury Apartment Tower in Jersey City
    August 04, 2016 04:17 PM Eastern Daylight Time

    FLORHAM PARK, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announced today that it has secured $155.83 million in financing for the development of 90 Columbus, a 539-unit, 50-story, Class A apartment tower in Jersey City, New Jersey.

    HFF worked exclusively on behalf of Ironstate Development and Panepinto Properties, Inc. to secure the construction loan through a national commercial bank. This transaction follows the announcement of permanent financing that HFF procured for the adjacent 50-story apartment tower at 70 Columbus in March 2016 through Northwestern Mutual Real Estate.

    90 Columbus is positioned at the corner of Marin Boulevard and Steuben Street in Jersey City’s Grove Street District. The property is part of a multi-phase development, which also includes the 400-unit, Costas Kondylis-designed 50 Columbus apartment building; 50-story, luxury residential tower 70 Columbus; soon-to-be-completed, 152-room Marriott Residence Inn at 80 Columbus; and on-site shared parking.

    Due for completion in 18 months, 90 Columbus will feature studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom luxury residences averaging 789 square feet each and 7,500 square feet of indoor amenity space featuring a swimming pool, grilling areas, indoor and outdoor children’s play areas, dog run, sport court, table tennis room, library and Wi-Fi lounges. Residents will also have access to the amenity package at 50-70 Columbus, including membership at the 30,000-square-foot BASE Fitness.

    90 Columbus shares its design, conceptualized by world-renowned architecture firm Gwathmey, Siegel, Kaufman and Associates (GSKA), with neighboring 70 Columbus. The transit-oriented property will include on-site access to the Grove Street PATH Station providing direct access into downtown Manhattan, as well as a 15,000-square-foot grocer on its ground floor. Surrounded by the Paulus Hook, Newport and Power House neighborhoods, 90 Columbus will offer expansive views of the Manhattan skyline, Hudson River, Statue of Liberty and New York Harbor.

    The HFF debt placement team representing the borrower was led by senior managing director Thomas Didio.

    Thumbs up MASSIVE Towers Proposed for JSQ

    It looks like JSQ might be home to the tallest cluster of buildings in the state of NJ in the not-too-distant future if two proposals that are up for a vote in this week's Planning Board meetings go ahead. Although it's probably at least the tenth revised proposal for the site, One Journal Square is now being proposed as an iconic 79 (yes, seventy-nine) story tower along with a shorter 46 story tower (a combination that is very much in line with the original proposal from way back in 2006). Also, 30 Journal Square (Jersey Journal building redevelopment) is being proposed as a 72-story tower. And of course there's a 70-story tower in the mix for a future phase of the J2 project. I believe that one thing that may be encouraging the height for these buildings (besides one of the last opportunities to develop very high density housing next to a PATH station in NJ) is far more favorable geotechnical conditions compared to downtown (bedrock, like midtown Manhattan has, as opposed to silts/sands that you see in downtown). Besides the height, a great thing about these towers is that they all contain a substantial amount of office space as well as a substantial amount of retail space....which is essential for further developing JSQ as the 24/7 heart of Jersey City.

    So is this what Jared Kushner was up to? Very nice... IF he really will build if they are approved and not continue wasting valuable space. Had no idea there was a revised plan for both...please keep us informed if there is approval or not, though I don't foresee a problem especially as development critic downtown councilman Rich Boggiano is on board with the 30 Journal Square project, supporting the public plaza development included there. Any new heights to report? looks like at least 500 for the shortest tower and the other two could go 800-900 ft. which being in one of the highest points in the city will look even more impressive than downtown's towers.
