    Default 321 Warren Update

    Nothing at 331 Marin yet. I think they'll start construction within the next year but for now there's no survey markings or any other sign of construction at the site. The only thing that looked promising was the soil core sampling that took place a few months back.

    On the flip side, here's an update on 321 Warren (about a block over), which is starting to grow quickly.


    Looking southwest toward 50 & 70 Columbus:




    Looking northwest toward 10 Provost:




    (looks as if they're completing the lobby level right now, so the final structure will be about 6 1/2 times the height of what's been built so far...really going to substantially fill that area in):

    Default A Beautiful Design Destroyed by Value Engineering

    Looks like 75 Park Lane is another victim of the practice. The developer grossly overestimated the profit it could achieve on each unit and had to cut asking prices to get buyers in. It subsequently looked for ways to cut costs, starting with the facade...this will be the tallest structure in the state of NJ to use this cheap siding; ironically the new towers in Newark are higher-end structures with more expensive façade systems. I feel sorry for any buyer who paid top dollar a year ago for a unit here thinking they would be living in a Manhattan-quality building.






    Here's a reminder of how it was supposed to look (brick & metal paneling):

    Interesting snippet in the recent Yimby interview of Larry Silverstein, who just saw WTC3 open in recent months and also (confirmed in the interview) expects WTC2 to be realized sooner rather than later. He commented about having two residential high rise developments in the pipeline... one in Queens, NYC... and most juicy, one in Jersey City in Journal Square. And from the interview it didn't appear to be a typo, as it had him stating that just a couple of stops from Manhattan is Journal Square,but I can't find this project anywhere. ANYONE have a clue about what it could be, if it's correct?
