JERSEY CITY | Journal Square | Phase 1 | 544 FT | 54 FLOORS

I don't know if this is the final design. If so, it's ok, but it will be nice to see an 82 story tower in JC.

http://handelarch.com/projects/type/...sidential.html

Journal Square
Jersey City
Journal Square is a new mixed-use high-rise development awarded through a design competition to Handel Architects and HWKN. The three tower project – the tallest at 82 stories - includes over 2,000 apartments, as well as office space and retail. A sweeping, tree-filled plaza will host farmer’s markets, evening film projections and public events along its low stairs that slope down to the PATH station. Wide, public walkways under each tower’s entrance encourage people to move easily from the plaza into the surrounding neighborhood

Wow OMG is this serious? I always thought it was a shame that the Journal Square project never went anywhere.

If this is a serious proposal, which I hope it is, this is mind-numbingly fucking awesome. The whole New York area is an unstoppable force. It feels like we're close to rivaling the Tokyo megalopolis...with a better set of skylines

If built this building can easily pass the 1,000 foot mark. It would be anywere between 1,100 to 1,200 feet high.

This project is absolutely fantastic, and hopefully comes to fruition... would make a very iconic addition to the JC skyline, and hopefully encourage similar developments in DoBro and LIC.

So if this happened, where would it be located in relation to the PATH station? Would they build above the tracks to the Northwest of the station (across JFK Blvd?) Or would they build to the East-Southeast of the PATH station?

It would be right next to the JSQ station?

The description says, "A sweeping, tree-filled plaza will host farmer’s markets, evening film projections and public events along its low stairs that slope down to the PATH station."

I wasn't sure whether that meant construction on the east side of JFK Blvd or the west side. If I had to guess, I'd assume the east side so that people don't actually have to cross JFK Blvd to get to the station entrance.

Going by this rendering, it's on the east side.



Towers on the blue parcel, plaza on the green parcel.

That would really be something if this project comes to fruition!

It would be instantly noticeable from the World Trade Center, and the World Financial Center from Manhattan if it is ever built. It is taller than anything else in Hoboken or Jersey City.

This would be further away from the main cluster of towers in the Exchange Place and Newport areas, but still an excellent addition.

If this is really going to be built, it will be another step into expanding high rises and skylines away from Manhattan. Greater New York is going to expand in these next few years.

This proposal is on a very high level of badass.

Ya see, there is one MAJOR problem to this. How in the hell are they going to fill 2,000 apartments in Jersey City? It's likely going to be lowered significantly if it is even approved. If I am wrong someone please correct me... then I will be excited for this.

The rental vacancy rate in the core counties of the metropolitan area are around 1%. There's a desperate shortage of rental apartments.

The area continues to be a desirable place to live and work. Whether that constitutes this kind of demand I cannot say, however I don't think the area has been built up by accident.

There has also been a proposal around this area as well for 2 buildings that would be around 600 feet tall. It would also be residential, but nothing happened as of yet. I am certain that Journal Square would someday be a high rise residential area. These 5 towers are just the beginning of what would someday be a massive skyline in Jersey City and Hoboken.
