    Wish it were a bit taller but we may well get the height in the at least 700 ft two towers left to be built in the URBY development plus the former Harborside 8/9 lots in back of Crystal Pointe and Harborside 10 expected to go very high rise residential double towers. At 40 stories with some high floors we're looking at least 450-500ft, probably a bit taller than 34 story, 485 ft. Harborside 5 office tower... seems like it will have a lot of nice amenities for tenants including a rooftop garden/lounge area. That LED display component could be really iconic too...wonder how it will play out? All in all, great news and hopefully we'll get construction starting soon!

    Lightbulb JSQ Getting Digital Clock

    Giant clock planned for new Journal Square tower

    Jersey City may get its own version of Big Ben.

    The developers behind the three-tower Journal Squared project won approval from the city Planning Board recently to add a giant digital clock to the next tower slated for construction.

    Unlike London's iconic Big Ben, which sits atop a 315-foot tower, the Journal Squared timepiece will be much closer to the ground. A rendering of the building shows the clock near the ground floor of the 759-foot building. It will face south, toward the plaza that leads into the Journal Square PATH hub.

    Crews broke ground on the second Journal Squared tower earlier this year. The 72-story high-rise is expected to be completed in 2020. It is the tallest of the nine high-rises planned for Journal Square.

    KRE Group, the development firm of Murray and Jonathan Kushner, is behind Journal Squared.

    The planning board gave approval to revised designs for the second Journal Squared tower at its Oct. 24 meeting. The revised plans include the addition and the clock and four more apartments for the high-rise, boosting the total to 704.

    Thumbs up Jersey City Medical Center Set for Expansion with donation

    N.J. hospital plans to expand, thanks to seven-figure donation

    The Jersey City Medical Center is planning a major expansion, and a donor has stepped forward to help make it possible.

    Jersey City developer Joseph Panepinto Sr. announced a seven-figure gift to the RWJBarnabas facility to kick off the project, which includes a new 60,000-square-foot building that will house a "state-of-the-art" emergency department and surgery suites, officials said.

    "Individual philanthropy is vitally important to health care and to our local community hospital," said Panepinto, founder and chief executive of Panepinto Properties. "With this donation, we hope to inspire other community members to join me and my family in investing in the one service that every single person will ultimately require-healthcare."

    The exact size of the gift, which is being touted as one of the largest in the hospital's history, has not yet been determined, a hospital spokeswoman said.

    The hospital expansion and donation announcement were made at a gathering of more than 100 community leaders, board members, and staff.

    "Jersey City is poised to become the largest city in New Jersey," JCMC CEO Joseph Scott said. "A strong infrastructure with world-class health care is key to sustaining this expansion. JCMC must evolve with the rapidly growing population."

    Besides the new building, the expansion plans call for additional private patient rooms and essential medical units at the hospital's Downtown Jersey City campus.

    Hospital officials have said that over the past few years 81,000 patients were seen annually in the JCMC emergency department, roughly 25,000 more than it was designed for annually.

    "As Jersey City continues to grow, in the number of residents as well as corporations moving into our neighborhoods, so do the health care needs of our community," Scott said. "We are grateful for the generosity of community leaders and developers like the Panepinto family, who are investing in their community hospital to help make our expansion a reality."

    In August, RWJBarnabas, under the JCMC name, opened a medical facility in Bayonne that includes a satellite emergency department. (http://www.nj.com/hudson/index.ssf/2...ves_final.html)

    Default J2 Second Tower

    It appears that construction of the second J2 tower hasn't actually started yet. There's just a single excavator at the site and I didn't see a construction management trailer. I believe they've just finished site prep. From Thanksgiving morning:

    ^^^They're done with excavation. That excavator (and another that was previously onsite) dug the hole, and finished about a week ago. Don't they usually schedule a few weeks of flex time between the end of excavation and the beginning of foundation work?

    There should be at least a construction management trailer onsite for the GC on the project, but there isn't one there. Seems like this work that was just completed was just environmental cleanup, not site prep for the next tower. And usually for residential projects (unless there's a significant underground parking component), test piling and/or CMC/caisson work will start within days of the start of site prep, so if that were site prep work we'd be seeing a pile driver or other deep foundation equipment onsite by now.

    Thanks West Hudson, you're very informative, as always. But something doesn't make sense here--this site didn't need enviro remediation; most of the site was only ever occupied by residential (never industrial), with only a small part of the site later occupied by the Verizon office building. They dug a 1.5 acre hole (~65,000 sq ft) to a depth of like 20 feet. Most of the site was at grade before excavation! Seems like a very expensive undertaking if they're not proceeding with the tower.

    has 808 Pavonia broken ground yet? Jersey Digs article (Bodegas of Journal Square) says 808 Pavonia and a few others have either broken ground or under construction. Yet same article refers to another article that says not until 2019 (2 years from now!!) ??

    808 Pavonia has absolutely not broken ground.

    At the very least. nothing will happen til next year (or more likely 2019 as those other articles attest to) and they have to demolish the parking lot there first anyway. Hopefully Harwood doesn't land bank this like they did when they had the City Center property across the street(now held by the dysfunctional Kushner side of the family.)

    Cool 88 Regent St. to be final piece in block.

    Liberty Harbor’s 88 Regent Street to Break Ground Next Year
    By Chris Fry - December 11, 2017

    With construction at 333 Grand Street set to wrap in the early spring, the biggest developer behind the Liberty Harbor project has already gained approvals for a new tower set to rise at the intersection of Jersey Avenue and Regent Street.

    Last month, representatives from Liberty Harbor met with the Van Vorst Park Association to present their modified plans for property they own at 88 Regent Street. The Planning Board then signed off on the changes at their November 17th meeting, which fully conform to the area’s existing zoning.

    Designed by Hoboken-based Marchetto Higgins Stieve, the 32-story development will consist of 392 rental apartments, 9,110 sq. ft. of ground floor retail, and over 5,000 sq. ft. of office space. A multi-level garage with space for over 300 cars will be included at the property, but will be buried within the structure from the street to better conceal it from pedestrians.

    88 Regent will be more of a skinny tower and feature large glass components. The corner of the property will be rounded, although more suddenly and dramatically than the 333 Grand building. A dome-like structure dubbed a cupola will be featured on top of the building, which was designed to offer great views of NYC, Ellis Island, Liberty State Park, and other local landmarks.

    A representative for the developer told Jersey Digs that the project was designed to activate the space, and they hope the property becomes iconic. The location and height of the development means it will be one of the first things people heading to Downtown Jersey City see when traveling along Grand Street.

    “We view 88 Regent as a gateway building for Downtown,” the rep says. “We hope it’s a positive introduction for the neighborhood.”

    The 13th floor of 88 Regent will be fully devoted to amenities, which have not been finalized yet but should include a pool, gym, and facilities similar to other Liberty Harbor developments. The back of house for the entire block of Regent Street will be dedicated for loading, which was designed to create a cleaner-looking block for residents.

    The massive Liberty Harbor project was first conceived by developer Peter Mocco in the 1990s and has expanded significantly since then. In the last year, the 194-unit 50 Regent Street was completed and Phase 2 of the condo-based Gull’s Cove project is underway.

    Other developers like private equity investment firm Quadrum Global have pitched grand plans for the area as well, which does have some undeveloped land and offers a pretty unique park and marina side location.

    For Mocco’s latest part of the redevelopment effort, 88 Regent will fill the last peg of a block directly in front of the Jersey Avenue Light Rail Station. Construction should start in mid-2018 and is anticipated to take about 30 months to build out.

    Post Craneless Construction at 75 Park Lane

    Here's a view from the top, from this morning (you can see that there quite a few pieces of equipment that they're using, including what appears to be a mobile concrete spreader).



    Happy holidays everyone!
