    But yes, a lot of the proposals were always aspirational. A lot of people think that any project that gets approved will be built overnight, which is why they oppose approvals of projects. But it's a more gradual organic process than that.
    Also, demolition for two recently approved buildings on Cottage Street (same developer as 87 Newkirk) is going to proceed soon. The two buildings are 20 stories and 27 stories.

    Default Prelim Site Work Starts at Provost Square III

    The site for Toll Brothers' third tower is now fenced off with some light construction equipment present. The project is supposed to take a little longer than the second phase since it includes a building (the old A&P building) that has to be remediated.

    The third tower is planned as condos, though with the condo market quickly slowing down with the small increase in interest rates that we've seen, who knows what it will end up as. The building is planned to have 259 units.

    Separate from this, the condo building at 175 Second Street appears to be steaming ahead. The perimeter foundation area has been excavated and a set of H piles has arrived onsite. That building is planned to have 159 condo units, which means a total of 422 condo units are planned for release over a roughly 18-month period (alot for a single neighborhood...).

    Default Newark Ave Infill Boom

    Especially at the western edge of downtown (the Village neighborhood), there is a ton of small-scale infill construction taking shape. In the image below, you can see nine sites that are under construction (red), have had recent demolition with proposed redevelopment (orange), proposed redevelopment with imminent demo (yellow), or recent completion (gray). Most of these sites are slated for condominiums, and there are several other small sites to the north, south, and east. This area has been largely light-industrial for decades and is quickly changing now.




    Here are some photos from 11/23 showing some of the construction activity:

    Long site behind Monaco Lock/White Eagle Hall




    Wedge-shaped site at the corner of Newark Ave & Fifth Street







    Site on Sixth Street

    Thumbs up 25 Columbus Site Prep Begins

    Well, it's the first weekday of the month, and sure enough, Mack-Cali is indeed moving forward with its new mega tower at 25 Columbus. I was surprised to see the entire southwest corner of the parking lot at Montgomery Tower sectioned off with a construction fence tonight as there was no activity at all this morning. Looks like all the cars that were parked there moved during the day to make way for a staging and construction management trailer area.

    This area is in the footprint of where the multi-level parking deck will be....I'm guessing the management trailer arrives tomorrow or Weds.

    Framing for the podium (retail that faces Pavonia & parking floors above that) are up to the 8th floor (where the amenities / pool floor's rooftop). The actual second tower still seems to be at ground level.

    By Jessica Perry, December 5, 2018 at 2:42 PM


    26 Journal Square, Jersey City. - (KUSHNER COS.)

    26 Journal Square in Jersey City has completed its repositioning, adding more than 17,000 square feet of new retail and office tenants to the property originally built in 1928.

    New York City-based Kushner Cos. and KABR Group of Ridgefield Park said work has been completed at what is considered to have been the first skyscraper in Jersey City.

    In addition to upgrades to lobbies, corridors, bathrooms and other common spaces at the 111,000-square-foot property, Kushner announced new retail and office tenants for the completed project.

    Flatbread Grill is already open, occupying 1,544 square feet, and will be joined by Chipotle Mexican Grill, which is set to occupy 2,321 square feet in the first quarter of 2019.

    New office tenants include Always Caring Health, Ora Group International, Access Nursing and Formulus Black Corp., who will occupy a combined 11,974 square feet.

    Default Heavy Equipment Arrives at 25 Columbus

    Today a few pieces of heavy equipment were delivered and a crew was onsite to begin some initial staging work. Looks like they'll probably start ripping out the parking lot within the next few days to make way for the new multi-level parking structure.

    This area is really shaping up. Besides these two, the planned new courthouse building will be huge. This site has renderings for 345 Baldwin from its last proposal.

    Jersey City property rebrands to attract innovative tenants
    By Jessica Perry, December 11, 2018 at 8:19 AM


    Lab rendering for the Liberty Innovation Centre at 95 Greene St. in Jersey City. - (SJP PROPERTIES)

    SJP Properties has announced the rebranding of Jersey City’s 95 Greene St. to the Liberty Innovation Centre.

    JLL will lead leasing at the property and a marketing campaign to entice tenants from the life sciences, health care and biotechnology industries.

    The eight-story, 350,000-square-foot building originally served as a manufacturing facility for Colgate Palmolive, but was converted to an office building following SJP’s acquisition with partner Prudential Real Estate Investors of the property in 1999. The building, SJP said, was later occupied by Merrill Lynch, “for many years.”

    “Despite considerable pent-up demand among these users,” SJP Properties Chief Executive Officer Steven Pozycki said in a release, “very few existing buildings in this market can accommodate tenants with lab components or robust power requirements, let alone those that can also provide immediate access to a highly skilled workforce and Manhattan via multiple mass transit options.”

    It drives me crazy how someone would attempt to block a development that would essentially give them the same outcome as winning the lottery. Sell your property, buy the penthouse in the highrise that replaces it, and put the rest into a stock index through which dividends alone will probably give you far more income each year than you'll ever make at your day job.

    Cool NJCU West Campus Rapidly Building Out

    University PAC, Center for Music Dance and Theater coming to NJCU at University Place
    Performing arts projects, which could be coming as soon as 2020, are just the latest additions to transformational project

    NJCU
    Renderings of the newest planned projects at NJCU's University Place.


    The arts are coming to Jersey City and New Jersey City University in a big way.

    The latest planned projects at University Place on the campus of NJCU include University PAC, a state-of-the art theater, and the Center for Music, Dance and Theater, a cutting-edge academic complex for instruction in the performing arts.

    The $90 million development project, the seventh at University Place, also will include three large restaurants and 160 market-rate rental apartments.

    NJCU officials anticipate breaking ground in mid-2019 with occupancy in late 2020.

    Here’s how the project breaks down:

    University PAC: A 25,437-square-foot theatrical showplace comprising: a 492-seat theater, complete with an orchestra pit and fly stage; a 100-seat recital hall; two large dance studios for both rehearsal and performances with exterior glass walls looking out to a large public plaza; performers’ dressing rooms; a scenery fabrication shop and storage; grand lobby; and special event space.

    NJCU Center for Music Dance and Theatre: A cutting-edge, two-story, 52,305-square-foot academic building comprising: classrooms, practice studios, teaching studios, music and dance rehearsal spaces, faculty offices, student lounges, and common areas.

    Restaurants: More than 12,000 square feet, divided into three separate restaurant spaces, one of which is adjacent and open to the PAC grand lobby, to provide food service and catering for performances and special events.

    Luxury rental apartments: A 159-unit, four-story (on top of the existing two), 133,745-square-foot luxury rental apartment complex comprising studio-, one- and two-bedroom apartments, fitness center, outdoor swimming pool and recreation deck, other amenities, and available parking on an adjacent parking deck.

    Parking deck: A 123-space, second-story, 38,449-square-foot parking deck.

    University Place is a $400 million project located along West Side Avenue and University Place Boulevard that is intended to create a college town atmosphere for New Jersey City University. It is being developed by Anthony Bastardi, chairman and CEO of Strategic Development Group.

    When finished, the 22-acre college town will feature retail, commercial and residential components that will generate ratables for the city as well as university facilities including a residence hall, the new performance arts buildings and an outdoor performance space.

    It will also have 790 rental apartments for more than 1,500 residents and students, approximately 100,000 square feet of retail space, including a ShopRite, five large restaurants and other retail shops.

    Bastardi has led several innovative redevelopment projects in Jersey City that are transforming neighborhoods by pairing amenities for the city’s two universities with tax-generating benefits for area residents.

    Bastardi, who partnered with Saint Peter’s University in 2009 in developing the Mac Mahon Student Center, began working with New Jersey City University in 2014 and delivered projects such as NJCU’s School of Business on the Jersey City waterfront.

    Bastardi said he helps universities look at underdeveloped properties in a new light.

    “For years, these properties have been underutilized,” he said. “I’m the big picture guy on these projects. Quite often, university leadership does not have the time nor experience to focus on underutilized real assets. When I look at land, I don’t see what is. I see what can be.”

    Currently, University Place comprises seven large-scale developments in various stages of planning, design, construction and occupancy. The first of these is University Place Village, a residence hall that is three years old, where more than 400 NJCU undergraduate students currently live.

    The second of these new developments, Rivet, is a mixed-use, rental apartments and retail project, which recently received the 2018 ULI NNJ Excellence Awards for Public/Private Partnerships. Developed by a joint venture between Claremont Construction Group and The Hampshire Companies, more than 70 of Rivet’s 163 rental apartments are now occupied. A Five Guys restaurant is the first of five retailers that will open soon.

    The third new development, a $50 million rental apartments project now under construction on Block 5B, is being developed by KKF University Enterprises. The project is halfway through construction, is located between the Village and Rivet, and is planned to open in October 2019.

    The fourth new development, the second by the Claremont/Hampshire joint venture, will break ground before year’s end on a $50 million mixed-use rental apartment and retail project. It will be constructed on Block 2.

    The fifth new development, the second by KKF, will break ground in early 2019 on a $50 million residential rental apartments project to be constructed on Block 1.

    The sixth new development, a Shop Rite supermarket will break ground in fall 2019, fronting on Route 440 and University Place Boulevard, with completion anticipated in early 2021.

    Default Kushner firm wins records dispute against Jersey City

    JERSEY CITY — A Hudson County judge ruled Friday that the Fulop administration must hand over documents requested by Kushner Companies related to the developer’s stalled Journal Square project, a plan that is at the center of a separate legal proceeding in federal court.

    Judge Francis B. Schultz’ five-page decision, which also slaps Jersey City for not devoting enough resources to answering public-records requests, comes as the administration faces renewed criticism over its transparency.

    Default 25 Columbus Construction About to Ramp Up

    Until this morning, there was just a small corner of the parking lot being used as a staging & equipment storage area. As of this evening, the entire parking lot is cleared of all vehicles, so it looks like they are ready to start tearing it up.
