JERSEY CITY | General Developments

Forbes to move into Jersey City next week

JERSEY CITY – Forbes is reported to be moving into its new digs in downtown Jersey City next week...

“The Forbes announcement bringing 350 jobs to our city, on the very same day we broke ground for the tallest residential tower in the history of New Jersey, speaks to the great things happening in Jersey City and helps toward our goal to lead the state in private and construction job creation,” said Mayor Steven Fulop.

What tallest residential tower is Fulop referring too? The two tallest developments right now are Journal Squared and URL trios.

Jersey City looks to delay vote on controversial City Hall annex

City officials plan to ask the City Council to postpone a vote on the controversial City Hall annex lease that was scheduled to be finalized this week...

The annex would house city offices in a building outside the Hub shopping center on Martin Luther King Drive. Ward D Councilman Michael Yun, a frequent critic of Mayor Steve Fulop, has blasted the deal as a giveaway to developers.

I love how pro development everyone in Jersey City is! Related, Vernado, Brookfield, Durst. All other developers, come build here!!

http://www.nj.com/hudson/index.ssf/2...abatement.html

Jersey City City Council votes on two controversial issues; terminates a tax abatement

Highlights...

Finally, the council gave final passage to a resolution clearing the way to sell a parking lot used by Jersey City Municipal Court employees, police and city inspectors at 362 Summit Ave. Yun said the parking lot will be replaced by a building with 55 to 65 residential units which provides no onsite parking.

Another resident lauded the project, saying it would create tax income for the city, boost business on the square and increase property values. A second resident said development is being focused Downtown but Journal Square needs it as well. A union construction worker supported the project saying, “We need jobs.”

Donald Pepe, attorney for the developer, said the project will be designed with all parking required by law. He noted there are dozens of parking lots in the area which would love more business. Finally, he said the building will enhance the neighborhood and generate some $150,000 per year in taxes. He said he has a petition signed by 300 residents in favor of the project.

That building Forbes is moving in to is arguably the ugliest in the Newport / Exchange Place strip. A 14 story uninspired grey box with ugly 1990s Florida-esque teal stripes below the windows.

ISO and JPM's buildings down the block are similar ugly boxes but at least their stone / metal facades look much much better.

Sorry for the rant, I just can't stand that ugly box.

Thanks!

Would it be appropriate for a moderator to merge the two threads?

Newport is home to some of the worst architecture and urban design I've ever seen. It's pathetic. The good news is that there is a new development planned just south of Newport by the Harsimus Cove HBLR stop. Towers of various heights lined with retail at their base will have a much better interaction with pedestrians on the street. Only a matter of time before ShopRite lot gets redeveloped along with Newport Mall itself.

Boyd-McGuiness Park at the corner of Kennedy Boulevard and Duncan Avenue is getting reconstructed. The project is scheduled to be completed by mid-April, 2015. The Jersey Journal

The contracts have been awarded, the funds are secure, the design has been created and ground has already been broken on the makeover of Boyd-McGuiness Park at the corner of Duncan Avenue and Kennedy Boulevard in Jersey City.

"I think it will be a great asset for the neighborhood and a much needed play area for kids," said Kara Hrabosky of the Duncan Avenue Neighborhood Association. "It's been promised for years and now everybody is really excited to see that patch of land being put to good use."

The makeover, which is scheduled to be completed by mid-April, is to include a new playground, amphitheater, spray ground, community gardens, game tables, and various seating areas, according to Brian Weller, acting director of the city's Division of Architecture.

I think it will be a great asset for the neighborhood and a much needed play area for kids.” Kara Hrbabosky Duncan Avenue Neighborhood Association
To more fully acquaint local residents with the plans, a meeting is being held tonight at 7 inside the Boyd McGuiness Apartments Community Room, 2555 Kennedy Blvd.

Money to help renovate the park was secured from the Hudson County Open Space Trust Fund.

Hudson County will spend more than $7 million on four projects in Jersey City’s Lincoln Park, including the restoration of a historic fountain, the expansion of existing bleachers, the installation of pedestrian walkway lighting, as well as bicycle lane improvements.

On Sept. 11 the Hudson County Freeholders awarded the $6.7 million contract to restore the fountain to Nicholas and Galloway, Inc. of New York. The project is expected to begin next month and will take an about a year to complete, Hudson County spokesman Jim Kennelly said.

Hudson County Freeholder Bill O’Dea said the fountain, which is located near the park's entrance at West Side and Belmont avenues, was last overhauled in the late 1980s. Designed by sculptor Pierre J. Cheronin, the fountain was completed in 1911 but no longer functions optimally, O'Dea said.

"We love all our other parks but Lincoln Park is the flagship park," Hudson County Executive Tom DeGise said. "We have known about the condition of this fountain and also the cost, but anyone who lives in Hudson County knows that it is something we have to do."

Hudson County Community College opens cutting edge library in Journal Square

Hudson County Community College hosted a grand opening for its newest facility, a six-story, 112,000 square-foot library on Journal Square in Jersey City, Monday, Sept. 29, 2014. Reena Rose Sibayan | The Jersey Journal

Before a crowd of faculty, trustees, alumni and students, Hudson County Community College hosted the grand opening of its newest facility this morning: a six-story, 112,000 square foot library with plenty of bells and whistles.

"This new library is a game changer for Journal Square," said HCCC President Glen Gabert. "It's a symbol that we are a first-choice institution. HCCC is becoming a premier urban community college."

The $35,000,000 library, which broke ground in November 2012, is the product of collaborative funding between the county, state, and HCCC board of trustees. It is also a harbinger for further development of Journal Square by HCCC, which hopes to add a bookstore, a STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) facility, and parking garage in the coming years, according to William Netchert, chairman of the HCCC board of trustees.

"The college had the confidence in Journal Square to spend hundreds of millions of dollars developing the campus when nobody would spend money in Journal Square for years," Netchert said. "I think because of that, all of this new interest in Journal Square has been hastened because we are here."

Not rich? Hudson County building affordable public golf course in Jersey City

It's no Liberty National, but the nine-hole Hudson County Golf Course in Lincoln Park, Hudson County's first public golf course, is shaping up.

The $20 million course at Routes 1&9 and Duncan Avenue is scheduled to open around the middle of next year and promises a setting with amazing views and natural wetlands, all for $20 a round.

"This is really golf. This is not pitch and putt," Hudson County Executive Tom DeGise said Friday at the 3,100, to 3,200-yard course, which has three par-three holes, three par-four holes and three par-five holes, including drives over waterways. Its working name is the Lincoln Park West Public Golf Course.

County residents will be allowed to buy a card that gives them a discount at the course and priority when it comes to tee times, officials said.

"This is the first public, affordable golf course in Hudson County and we are the only county in New Jersey that did not have a public course," DeGise said. "The only golf courses in the county now are in Bayonne and Jersey City and both cost about half a million dollars to join."

Rendering of 3 Journal Square
The Jersey Journal

Developers planning a $73 million residential building set for Journal Square are seeking a 30-year tax break from Jersey City.

The developers, including Hartz Mountain and former Democratic Party bigwig Joseph Panepinto, have already received $19 million in state tax credits for 3 Journal Square, a proposed 13-story tower with 240 rental units slated for a space adjacent to what's commonly called the ADP building, across the street from the PATH transportation hub.

Developers are proposing to pay 10 percent of their gross annual revenue – or $518,507 – in lieu of taxes for the first year of the deal, with the amount growing over the course of three decades. They project $3.2 million in operating income in the first year 3 Journal Square is open.

Details of the proposal have been submitted to the city. A City Hall source said it will go in front of the City Council in two weeks.
