    Thumbs up 331 Marin Site Prep Begins

    Demo has started at the site of Silverman Building's upcoming tower by the Grove Street PATH station:




    The three-story building below is about to get torn down:






    Here's what the new tower will look like:




    View from roughly the same angle as the first two demo pics above:

    I am a student of urban mass transit. Does anyone know the following:

    Grove St. PATH station, I believe, currently has 3 entrances/exits: a "gazebo"-looking structure in the pedestrian plaza, , a round, ugly entrance at Marin (which apparently replaced an entrance that was the same as those still at Hoboken), and an entrance across from the "gazebo" with escalator and enclosed in a "glass bubble". Was this "glass bubble" part of the original station? If so, did it replace one of the ancient kiosks still at Hoboken (and formerly at Marin)?

    The original station entrance was actually in the middle of the of Columbus Dr., (at the time known as Railroad Ave.) at the intersection with Grove St. under the elevated Pennsylvania Railroad tracks. The entrance at Marin Blvd. (then Henderson St.) was like the entrances at Hoboken Terminal. it was later closed but reopened at that circular round house. The entrance gazebo and and glass bubble are modern entrances I believe.

    J2 is under construction now.
    1JSQ is the one embroiled in litigation and not moving forward anytime soon.

    87 Newkirk is under construction now

    with all the plans and false starts, I've lost count. Is J2 the project Jared Kushner was involved in? If so, I thought that was still on hold. If not, which project is this? How many stories tall? How far has construction gotten and are they still working or has there been work stoppage? thx

    No. J2 (Journal Squared) is the three-tower complex on the corner of Pavonia and Summit. The first tower stands (54 stories), second tower (72 stories) is now under construction. Well, tons of earth work is happening on the site every day, but nothing rising out of the ground yet. The developer of this project is Kushner Real Estate (KRE), headed by Murray Kushner and his son Jonathan Kushner.

    1 JSQ is the approved (for now) two-tower complex on Bergen/Sip Aves. This one was to be developed by Kushner Companies and KABR. Kushner Cos. is headed by Charlie Kushner and until 2017 his son, Jared Kushner. Charlie and Murray (KRE) are estranged brothers, and Jonathan and Jared are cousins. This project is stalled and has made tons of news over the past year, including over the EB-5 visa controversy, project changes and loss of state and city incentives, and most recently, Kushner Cos' lawsuit against the city and JCRA, alleging bias. Kushner Cos. and KABR also own the former Jersey Journal building with approved plans to build a 72-story building behind it. Given the issues with 1 JSQ, I doubt that project moves forward anytime soon.

    It's easy to confuse Journal Squared and 1 JSQ because of their similar names and similar names of the developers, but the two branches of the Kushner family hate each other and the Journal Square neighborhood is the front line of their family feud.

    The Hudson County Courthouse was supposed to move toward 139. Is anything happening with that?

    Last I heard (quite a few months ago now), the county was still working on acquiring the properties needed.

    JCRA moving forward with bringing hotel to Journal Square, selects developer

    The Jersey City Redevelopment Agency is moving forward with plan to bring a hotel to Journal Square, selecting a developer at their meeting last night.

    The hotel is slated to be built on a five-parcel lot at the intersection of Newark and Cottage Avenues in Journal Square. The site, which had been previously transferred to the JCRA, will be purchased and redeveloped by Canbis, LLC, who has entered into a partnership with Dream Hotel Group, and has proposed a mixed-use space.

    Is this one of the four so so properties going between 23-27 stories in either the Homestead Assemblage or Central Avenue extension? I know one of the several in the Homestead Asemblafe was going to be 23 stories, another 25(this one?) and 27 for a third.

    This is at the north end of the Homestead Assemblage. 35 Cottage St was approved by the planning board earlier this month. That will be 27 stories.

    Nice! Didn't see anything about that first one approved earlier in the month, any links or info? This is going to make for a nice, dense transit oriented solidification of a thriving, vital Journal Square district. Hopefully Homestead Assemblage projects will start up[ a lot quicker than the miserable blot we have now at One Journal Square... hopefully Mayor Fulop helps get the ball rolling there by pushing out the Jared/ Charles Kushner development group that is either unable or unwilling to actually move forward with that god forsaken property. We need that developed asap... but this Homestead Assemblage series of developments wil get the ball rolling nicely until then. After all, the land is already pretty much vacant, no need for much in the way of demo work?

    No links on 35 Cottage, just the planning board action agenda email. There are buildings that need to be demolished for both 35 Cottage (there’s a synagogue there now) and the Dream Hotel (article says it’ll be built on the parking lot and 4 adjacent parcels, which presumably have buildings on them. I wonder if Vaibhav or Max’s are on any of those parcels. I’d hate to lose either of those restaurants.
