    Color me skeptical, but I don't see that Marin Blvd proposal happening anytime soon.

    First of all, it's literally in the middle of a 12-lane highway--between 6 lanes of inbound and 6 lanes of outbound Holland Tunnel traffic. Gotta cross a highway just to walk to the Newport stop or any shops or restaurants. If One Journal Square has had trouble getting funding right on top of a PATH stop in a walkable and centrally located neighborhood, I just don't see this happening any time soon.

    Second of all, the rate of construction permits right now is at the lowest since the recession. Jersey City has had about 850 apartments get construction permits in the past 12 months. For comparison, 1930 apartments got construction permits in the 12 months before that. To look at it another way, Newark has also permitted about 850 apartments in the past 12 months. How are they gonna get funding for 750 apartments next to the Holland Tunnel, when builders have only gotten financing for 850 apartments throughout the city in the past year?

    The truth is, there is insane demand in the Jersey City market right now, but mostly for workforce housing. And because high-rises have such high construction costs, they can't really fill that demand. The city needs to enable construction of more mid-rise 5-story infill buildings like the ones built in the 1920s throughout the city. These are cheaper to build and pencil out with lower rents. They've already rezoned much of Ocean Ave and MLK for this, as well as the area of Lafayette Park near the light rail stop. It needs to spread to other parts of the city too.

    -The first market rate residential building is topped out and now joins the new dorms on the West Campus. The second one across Stegman Pkwy should start construction soon after this one is completed.

    -The 5 story building on former Mac Video site is moving along nicely.

    That's basically whats going on right now. I'm hoping those two parking lots at Pollock and West Side an the last lot at Culver and Westside go the way of the dinosaur soon to really complete the street wall on that end.

    West Hudson in regards to 99 Hudson they are going slow but I'm hopeful once they top out the garage portion, the project really flies considering the tower portion is very slender. They put up banners around the construction fence showing the latest renderings.

    University Place Moves Full Steam Ahead While Bayfront Languishes
    By Gillian Blair - August 18, 2017


    Rendering Credit: Marchetto Higgins Stieve

    As reported recently, the area of Jersey City’s west side along the Hackensack River known as Bayfront has been mired in cleanup, controversy, and leadership quicksand–no one has emerged as a front-runner to advance the development beyond the rendering stage. However, directly across Route 440, another development is well underway and already bringing to this neighborhood what Bayfront up to now has only proposed.

    University Place is a $400 million, 22-acre development with four mixed-use projects in the works as well as a new ShopRite, parking garage, and housing for New Jersey City University (NJCU) students.


    University Place site plan | Courtesy of Strategic Development Group

    The first mixed-use building, developed by Claremont Companies, is about to top out, bringing 163 rental units and 12,000 square feet of retail to market. Leasing is slated to begin next year for May 2018 move-ins. Claremont Companies’ second mixed-use building will break ground in April 2018.

    GRID Real Estate was tapped to market the first phase of retail space at the project. Available is over 10,000 square feet of space including a restaurant opportunity that will sit at the gateway of University Place. “With very little options to choose from on the west side of Jersey City, University Place’s restaurant’s will cater to the university along with the outside public who now have to hop in their car and head downtown to grab a bite to eat.” Said Bobby Antonicello Jr. of GRID Real Estate.

    KKF University Enterprises is developing the other two mixed-use buildings, set to break ground in August of this year and December 2018. The four buildings will total 630 luxury rental apartments and 30,000 square feet of retail space. The developments have been staggered to minimize leasing competition.

    The new ShopRite will be 70,000 square feet and 1,000 vehicles will be able to park in the new parking garage. The new dorm for NJCU has been up and running since August 2016 and houses 430 students. And the entire development is built around a tree-lined, brick-paved boulevard, anchored by a public plaza with enough space to host outdoor performances. New Jersey City University’s new Center for Music, Dance, and Theater also plans to build its home here, possibly opening as early as 2019.

    Like Bayfront, University Place’s parcel of land on the east side of Route 440, bounded by West Side Avenue, was also owned by Honeywell whose predecessor contaminated the soil to the point of mandatory remediation which was completed years ago.

    Unlike Bayfront, what was called the West Campus of New Jersey City University was reimagined, redeveloped, and rebranded as University Place at a breakneck pace. Mr. Anthony Bastardi, CEO of Strategic Development Group, calls this project his passion for the last three years, wanting to develop a “place, in the urban planning sense, where people live, work, and play.”

    Involving the community, NJCU, Jersey City officials, and professional experts as key stakeholders from the very beginning certainly helped to drive the project forward. “University Place was imagined, embraced, and contracted all in one year,” said Mr. Bastardi. Incredibly, all development up to this point, from concept to construction, has taken only three years.


    Rendering courtesy of Strategic Development Group

    University Place Boulevard is nearly complete and landscaped while surrounding roads are also being built. Mr. Bastardi estimates that one year from now, in the summer of 2018, “all the roads will be in, 160 families will have moved into the first building where there will be a restaurant for us to have lunch, and three more buildings will be under construction.”

    University Place will activate 1,080 permanent jobs and $12 million in state and local taxes annually. Plus the 30-year PILOT negotiated with Jersey City will result in $93 million in payments to Jersey City.

    Thumbs up WESTSIDE HOT: Mixed Use Water Street Development and Culver Ave Development

    Three Phase Development With Over 600 Units Proposed for Jersey City’s West Side
    By Jared Kofsky - August 14, 2017


    (Bennett Street project is u/c to left of proposed site currently undergoing environmental remediation)

    Another new mixed-use development could join Bayfront, University Place, and the projects along Bennett Street that are set to contribute to the residential boom that is coming to the area of Jersey City’s West Side just east of Route 440.

    The project is being proposed for the large tract at 100 Water Street, which stretches from Claremont Avenue past Yale Avenue to Clarke Avenue. City records show that the plans call for the development to be constructed in three phases.

    Phase I would include a new five-story mixed-use building with 233 residential units, 7,763 square feet of retail space, and two parking lots with a combined 123 that would be temporary. Yale Avenue, which currently ends just west of Mallory Avenue, would be extended to Bennett Street, and a new connector road between Claremont Avenue and the proposed Yale Avenue extension would be constructed.

    Phases II and III are set to include the development of two new buildings, each of which would be seven stories tall. While one would contain 310 residential units and 11,057 square feet of retail space, just 78 residential units and 9,638 square feet of retail space would occupy the other. A new parking garage that would be six stories tall with 373 parking spaces would also be built as part of the plans.

    The property is located within Ward B’s Water Street Redevelopment Plan Zone, which is undergoing a transition from being an industrial and residential part of the city to containing more residential and retail space. This site, which is surrounded by fencing, was previously home to multiple buildings that were used for various industrial and automotive-related purposes, including Zone Towing and Recovery, 1 Extreme Towing, Lucan Enterprises, Avanti Bus Tours.

    However, The Jersey Journal reported in 2015 that the owner of 1 Extreme Towing was suddenly told to move his business out of the site within a month in order for the property to be redeveloped. All of the structures on the premises, which, according to NJ Parcels records, are owned by CWY, LLC, were demolished last year.

    The developer, 100 Water Street Development, LLC, which was registered with the State in 2016 out of Hoboken, is seeking Preliminary and Final Major Site Plan approval for Phase I and Preliminary Site Plan approved for Phases II and III. The case is set to be heard by the Jersey City Planning Board during its meeting on Tuesday, August 15th at 5:30 pm at City Hall.

    6-Story, 60-Unit Building Proposed for Jersey City’s West Side
    By Jared Kofsky - September 6, 2017


    181-191 Culver Avenue | Credit: Google Maps

    Although in the past few years, most of Jersey City’s new residential development proposals have been announced for Downtown, Journal Square, and Bergen-Lafayette, it appears that the city’s West Side is becoming the newest hub of multifamily construction as more projects are being announced.

    The latest new building is planned for 181-191 Culver Avenue, between West Side Avenue and Mallory Avenue, in Ward B. According to City records, the structure is set to be six stories tall and would include 60 residential units. 30 parking spaces would be provided on the premises for residents.

    The development is being proposed by John & Maryann, LLC, which, along with similarly named John & Maryan, LLC, has been acquiring properties and proposing new residential buildings across Jersey City in recent years, including a 32-unit building at 52-56 Cambridge Avenue in The Heights and a 16-unit development at 373-375 Danforth Avenue in Greenville. The company, which has been the owner of the Culver Avenue site for several years, is registered out of the same house on Bleecker Street as Angelo Construction.

    This property is now located within the Route 440-Culver Redevelopment Plan Zone and has been a gated vacant lot surrounded by homes and mid-rise residential building for at least a decade. Records from the Jersey City Municipal Council show that the Jersey City Planning Board unanimously recommended in May that the Zone be extended to include this ‘Mid-Rise A’ property within its boundaries, and the Council adopted the recommendation in June.

    The site is situated within a few blocks of the West Side Avenue business corridor, the West Side Avenue Station on the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail, New Jersey City University, the Hudson Mall, and NJ Transit Bus 80 to Journal Square and Exchange Place.

    The developer applied for Preliminary and Final Major Site Plan approval in order for the project to move forward, and the Jersey City Planning Board is scheduled to hear the proposal during its meeting on September 12th.

    Always great to see JCMAN on here and with this set of postings he's making up for lost time! I LOVE IT... as strong a backer I am for downtown development and especially Journal Square, this area is the heart of where I've lived my life... The West Side and Route 440 development is where I have the most excitement and passion because it is home for me, and will take areas of this part of the city that were dormant or severely underused and make them living, breathing neighborhoods and finally realize the potential this area has always had within it if only others shared that vision. I'll have more to say later about these developments but thanks again for your dedication and enthusiastic support for smart development in our city.

    Coralridge... I saw you are in Florida. My thoughts and prayers to you and anyone in Florida now with the approach of Hurricane Irma, hope you say safe and we hear from you as soon as possible.

    Cool Columbus Dr. Tower with School and Retail

    New Tower With Community Benefits Approved for 25 Columbus Drive
    By Chris Fry - September 18, 2017


    Credit: Handel Architects/L+M Development Partners

    Last year, Jersey City paved the way to add another piece to its skyline and in the dog days of this year’s summer, final approvals were granted for a plan that will see a new 52-story tower built with several other community benefits.

    In September 2016, Jersey City’s Planning Board voted unanimously to amend the Paulus Hook Redevelopment Plan. The move eliminated a parcel at 25 Columbus Drive from the existing plan and cleared a path to create a new redevelopment scheme specific to the site.

    The change was made because of a $370 million proposal by L+M Development Partners, and those plans were granted final approval by the Planning Board on July 18th. New York-based Handel Architects has designed a project that would build the aforementioned750-unit tower, a brand new 35,000 square foot public school, four storefronts and a public plaza, also sprucing up a current affordable housing complex in the process.

    L+M and the Paulus Hook Community Housing Corporation signed a deal back in 2014 for the sale of both an existing 163-unit affordable housing building and a neighboring parking lot at the property. Under the deal, all the current affordable apartments will be maintained and L+M will invest $3 million to improve the building, work that will include new windows and façade renovations.

    In exchange for that investment, L+M will get to build a 52-story, 750-unit tower on a parking lot right next door. The rental apartments at the new property will break down as 157 studios, 380 one-bedrooms, 197 2-bedrooms, and 16 3-bedrooms. Amenities at the building will include a dog run, a pool, and two roof decks totaling about 7,200 square feet. Select units in the building will sport private terraces.

    38 apartments in the new tower will be set aside as moderate-income units, and 401 parking spaces will be included in the development. In addition to the tower, the project will sport 16,485-square feet of retail split up between four spaces in shorter buildings surrounding the high-rise, three of which will be located on the corner of Montgomery and Warren Streets. The fourth storefront will be along Columbus Drive in the center of the property.

    In addition to the affordable units and retail, L+M will construct a 35,000-square foot school facility on another section on the property that will be deeded to the city for $1. The contract has already been approved by the Board of Education and the Jersey City Redevelopment Agency will issue $1 million in bonds for the project due to the community givebacks that are included.

    A public plaza will also be built at the corner of Warren Street and Columbus Drive. L+M estimates that 350 new construction jobs and 15 permanent ones will be created when the project moves forward. However, all these benefits do have a price; the city granted the development a 25-year tax abatement in February this year by a 6-3 council vote.

    The property currently produces about $51,000 in taxes annually for the city, but when the new tower rises and the retail and school components get built out, over $1.7 million per year in ratables will be generated for the city with the tax abatement. A timeline for the project isn’t clear, but during a week where another Columbus Drive development suffered a setback, it looks like the street’s growth spurt is still going strong.

    All of the construction management trailers and equipment are gone from the site next to the first Urby tower, so I have a feeling it may be awhile before the second one starts construction. Personally I hope they come up with a new, different design for the next tower.

    Journal Squared 2 site is fully cleared and graded. All construction equipment was cleared off the site a few days ago.


    A revised version of One Journal Square is going before the Planning Board on the 25th. This version is consistent with FAA filings from February that detailed two towers of equal height, each 777ft, rather than the 42-story and 79-story towers previously approved by the Planning Board. The new version has 66 stories in each tower (10-story base + 56 stories above), and 1512 apartments instead of 1725 apartments. This must be some sort of record for the number of times a project has gone before the Planning Board after being approved...

    I agree with West Hudson that I hope they switch up the design for the second and third Harborside towers. I like the one that's there by itself, but it wouldn't look as nice next to two other towers of equal height with the same design.

    Urby 2 breaks ground in Spring 2018. This has always been the plan.

    Thumbs up Harborside Re-Imagined and new Ferry Terminal Opening October 2

    Mack-Cali Wows With New Renderings of Harborside’s Transformation
    By Gillian Blair - September 20, 2017


    Rendering courtesy of Mack-Cali

    Two brand-new renderings of Harborside were just released by Mack-Cali Realty Corporation, further illustrating their $75 million capital investment in the complete transformation of their office buildings and the waterfront. Mirroring similar developments across the river along Manhattan’s West Side, Harborside will be a singular destination for living, working, and playing in Jersey City along the Hudson River.

    NYC-based SJP Properties is set to manage the development project which includes ambitious architectural updates to recall Harborside’s beginnings as a railroad terminus and shipping station. Elkus Manfredi Architects drafted the new design and SJP Properties will also partner with Mack-Cali on a new 1.2 million square foot, build-to-suit office tower to be constructed next to the Harborside complex.

    Aspects of the massive redevelopment are already up and running. The Harborside Atrium was reimagined as a cultural and communal space that often hosts local events like the Jersey City Wine Fest, Craft Brew Fest, and Midnight Market as well as music, dance, and art performances. And the Lutze Biergarten opened earlier this year.

    Even more can be expected during the current transformation phase. Office building lobbies will be made more accessible to pedestrians and connect to the Harborside Atrium as well as feature finishes like dark metal and wood that recall an earlier industrial era and collaborative meeting spaces throughout. The existing food court will become The Marketplace, a European-style food hall, and kiosks will rotate local vendors.

    Most apparent in the new renderings is the reskinning of Harborside’s office buildings. All eight floors on the east side of Harborside 1 plus the first three floors of Harborside 2 and 3 are reclad as a sparkling curtain wall with spectacular light and views of the Hudson River and Manhattan.

    Also confirmed with the release of the new renderings is a new ferry stop. “Together with the addition of a new NY Waterway ferry terminal, serving the Hudson Yards and World Trade Center, coming this fall, the capital improvements will facilitate far greater connectivity at Harborside,” said Michael J. DeMarco, CEO of Mack-Cali. “In order to activate the waterfront and energize the neighborhood, it’s integral that we create a seamless experience for residents, workers, and daily visitors.”

    Starting Oct. 2, there's another option for New York-bound commuters
    Updated on September 25, 2017 at 12:15 PM Posted on September 25, 2017 at 12:14 PM


    NY Waterway will begin ferry service between Harborside in Jersey City and two destinations in New York on Oct. 2. (David Mosca | For The Jersey Journal)

    By Ron Zeitlinger
    The Jersey Journal

    Jersey City is getting a fourth commuter ferry.

    Mayor Steven Fulop, NY Waterway President and Founder Arthur E. Imperatore, Mack-Cali Realty CEO Michael J. DeMarco and Roseland Chairman Marshall B. Tycher today announced a new commuter ferry terminal at Harborside that will open on Monday, Oct. 2.

    The Harborside terminal Downtown will make daily trips to the West 39th Street Ferry Terminal in midtown Manhattan and to the Brookfield Place/Battery Park City terminal in Lower Manhattan.

    The new terminal is at 210 Hudson St., and is close to the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail, the PATH at Exchange Place and NJ TRANSIT buses on routes 80 and 82.

    "Harborside now has the complete transit package," DeMarco, whose company is responsible for much of the Harborside development, said in a statement. "The ferry provides a direct connection to both PATH and the light rail, and Harborside has 3,500 parking spaces available for those who commute by car. Additionally, commuters can be comfortable waiting for their next connection inside the recently renovated Harborside Atrium."

    Service between Harborside and the West 39th Street terminal will be offered Monday-Friday 6:30-9:50 a.m. and 4-7:38 p.m., with ferries departing every 30 minutes. Fares are $8 for a single ticket, $75 for a 10-trip ticket, and $274.50 for a monthly pass.

    Service between Harborside and Brookfield Place/Battery Park City will be offered Monday-Friday 6:40 a.m.-9 p.m.,with ferries departing every 15 minutes. Fares are $6 for a single ticket, $56.50 for a 10-trip ticket and $196 for a monthly pass.

    "Investment in transit and finding alternative means of transportation has been a focus of our administration since Day 1," Fulop said in a statement. "Whether it was creating 22 miles of bike lanes, adding a 24-our bus route to and from New York City and now this commuter ferry terminal at Harborside, not only are we giving our residents more mass transit options, but we are allowing visitors another avenue in which to fully experience Jersey City's rich cultural scene."

    New Jersey City University broke ground Wednesday on a residential building at University Place, the $400 million redevelopment project that will see market-rate apartments and retail space added to Jersey City's West Side neighborhood.

    University officials and local dignitaries ushered in the start of construction on the $50 million building being developed by KKF University Enterprises. Comprising 149 units, the building is the second of five residential projects planned for University Place.

    NJCU President Sue Henderson was joined by Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop, NJCU Board of Trustees Chairman Rafael Perez and others for the ceremonial groundbreaking at 63 University Place Blvd.

    Last September, officials broke ground on the Claremont Construction Group's $50 million building at University Place that, once completed, will feature 163 apartment units and 10,000 square feet of retail space.

    Claremont is also slated to build another $50 million project at University Place, starting in the spring, featuring 167 units and another 11,000 square feet of retail space.

    Meanwhile, KKF Enterprises is scheduled to break ground on a pair of mixed-use residential buildings in spring 2019. The buildings will comprise a combined 152 units and 17,000 square feet of commercial space.

    The University Place projects are public-private partnerships between the university and the developers, in which the developers secure their own financing and design.

    So just to update, the building that broke ground last week is the third building in the middle on the bottom of the plan. The dorm that opened earlier this year is to it's left and the residential building under construction by Claremont is to it's right. The second Claremont building will begin construction in Spring of 2018 is just North of the current Claremont building under construction. KKF's two other buildings is a the very Northeast corner of the plan. Academic building is in the middle of the site and the LA Fitness & Shoprite will be in the Northwest corner of the site.
