I live in the area, and I can't stress enough the importance of the Kushner developments. Journal Square, the heart of Jersey City, has been in decline for some time and is in desperate need revitalization. The site has literally just been dirt for years and is collecting garbage.

What's more important than the architecture of the building is the new residents, retail options, and jobs it will bring to the community. It will revitalize the heart of the city and animate the streets. It's a prime spot for a dense urban development as you can be at the World Trade Center in less than 15 minutes by using the 24-hour PATH subway train.

I know some folks are on this forum purely for the aesthetics of new buildings, but there are also a group of urbanists on here that care about the healthy growth and development of cities and their people. This building will contribute to those goals in a positive manner.

Personally, I think they look great aesthetically too.
