    A little improvement regarding Provost but goodness we've seen a LOT faster. But hopefully the rest of the way is more rapid. Now this is the third tower(shortest one) NOT the one with part of the old Manischewitz factory in its facade?

    That's correct. The preserved Manischewitz building is across Provost Street from this site.


    btw - if you think Provost Square is moving along slowly, you should see Park + Shore...ugh. Barely have the foundation together at the tower site and they took the pile driver away from the midrise site after doing only about a quarter of the piling...not sure why.

    According to Jersey Digs the lot between 70/90 Columbus and the Morgan on Marin Boulevard should be getting a ten story, 200+ room hotel with a sizable retail component that will be a boutique subsidiary of Hilton... Canopy by Hilton which will have several branches opening up throughout the US.

    Default Plans Revealed For 20-Story Tower At 2973 Kennedy Blvd In Journal Square



    Rendering Credit: HLW International2973 Kennedy Blvd

    A massive new development has been proposed for three properties at 2973 John F. Kennedy Boulevard and 96-100 Cottage Street, located at the northwest corner of Kennedy and Cottage. According to a legal notice, the building, which would be located in Ward C’s Journal Square 2060 Redevelopment Area, is slated to be a mixed-use 20-story high-rise tower.

    Project plans show that 79 dwelling units are proposed for the building, as are 18,654 square feet of office space, 6,770 square feet of retail space, and ‘resident amenity space’. Sassoon Properties, Inc. and Sasvic Holdings, LLC, which is based out of Alpine Capital Bank’s offices in Manhattan, are proposing the development. “We’re very excited about the project”, said developer David Newton, who said the goal is for the development to be completed within 18 to 24 months.

    Although a one-story commercial building containing R.W. Mansfield Charting Service used to stand there, the site, located adjacent to the Apna Bazar Cash and Carry, has consisted of a vacant lot for several years. The Jersey City Planning Board approved the development proposal on November 1st, 2016.

    Just a few yards away from the site, another development is being planned for the area. Legal notices show that a new eight-story residential building is being proposed for 74-76 Cottage Street, between John F. Kennedy Boulevard and Summit Avenue. Applicant Kasturi Thangri is planning for the building to contain 44 units atop 2,252 square feet of retail space. Currently, two multifamily houses sit at the site, which is located in a largely residential neighborhood across from a Pepboys Auto Service Center. The project was approved on October 18, 2016 by the Jersey City Planning Board.
    A transportation, retail, and business hub for all of Hudson County, the entire Journal Square/Five Corners area is rapidly seeing dramatic changes, and is set to be developed even more in the years to come with projects like these and Journal Squared.

    Thumbs up 700 Washington Back on the Drawing Board

    The site for which the below two-tower complex was proposed back at the end of 2010 is back on the radar. It looks like the plan is to split the site, a slither of land just north of the Newport Green, up into eight smaller sites, create two new streets, construct a building with 338 units on one of them and temporary surface parking on the others.

    Original proposal:

    So basically one large tower will be built at present with the likelihood down the road for that temporary surface parking to eventually be developed as a separate residential tower? Interesting move creating two new streets... do you have a link to a more detailed look at the proposal anywhere? Thanks for the heads up on this!

    Here's how the area is depicted on the city's official development map. The overall site known as "700 Washington Blvd" is the area numbered as 144, 169, 170. The proposed new street grid is the uncolored spaces between the sites. The two-tower rendering that West Hudson linked to above would go on the site numbered "144" and would have 790 units. The 338-unit site is probably one of the two sites labeled as "170."



    Here are the relevant items on the May 16 Planning Board agenda:

    This looks like a very interesting, pretty expansive plan... several buildings and new streets. Don't think I can attend the Planning Board meeting but hopefully someone who can will be able to give us more info. Thanks Hamilton for the link, definitely a development at Newport that's going to be intriguing seeing how it plays out. And yes, hopefully if the two tower idea for the 144 lot is still intended, they go with a better design. I guess better than the old style Newport buildings but not going to agree with Planning Board guy Yost's positive, kinda glowing reviews... it's functionally okay but not aesthetically all that great.

    I didn't realize there were that many development sites left east of Washington. So altogether, there's probably enough room for about 30 towers in Newport if you include the three shopping centers (Acme/Best Buy, Target, and Staples/Modells).

    In some digging online I found that the site between Grove and Marin/18th and the Lightrail tracks where the banners recently went up labeled with the Newport logo (depicting loft/warehouse -style midrise residential buildings) is 677 Grove Street, the former Millennium Towers site (for those of you who remember the 45 story proposal from back in 1999-2000). Looks like Newport Associates purchased the property for $11 million in 2012; the previous owner bought the site for just $1.5 million in 1998 I believe...talk about amazing price growth.

    Sad that we won't be getting the Millenium Towers but a nice mid sized development is welcome, too.... we should still be seeing a number of 30-40 story towers in these new lots and where there is potential for them. Hopefully they can rezone those big box lots West Hudson mentioned(which is an incredible waste of space) and build residential with sizable retail components like they're doing on that Metro Plaza lot right next to the Mall.

    Guess what's turned up halfway around the world as "Kushner 1" ... that's right, our old friend, One Journal Square, still casting about for funding from Chinese investors. Check out the towers in the pic:

    This story brings out a visceral, furious reaction from me which I have shared in other forums. Enough!!!! This side of the Kushner family says that they have stable funding, fund it then. Start it even if they have to do them one at a time rather than build them together. It's been more than long enough, ten years since the Hotel on the Square and the other buildings here were demolished. So many broken, empty promises... first by the Harwoods(and it remains to be seen if they are truly serious about the Loews project/art district) then by their union pension investment fund partners who still found time to buy Newport Tower for $400 mil.... now by the politics- intoxicated, influence loving seedier branch of the Kushner family. We have to urge Mayor Fulop to push the Kushners on this project or make them sell it to someone who doesn't have such a problematic atmosphere of toxicity and influence peddling surrounding them.
