JERSEY CITY | Urban Ready Living | 713 FT + FT + FT | 69 + 70 + 65 FLOORS

Three-Tower Megaproject Coming to Jersey City Waterfront

Quote:
The first phase of the project, dubbed 'Urban Ready Living,' will be a 69-story residential tower, containing 766 apartments. Construction of phase one is expected to be completed by the end of 2014, which is quite rapid. The developers are planning two more towers of a similar size, which will accompany phase one of the development.

Actually the tallest of these buildings only end up measuring to somewhere in the 900 foot zone. It's 100 feet shy of 1,000 feet.

Are you sure? I would imagine that 3 roughly 70-floor residential buildings in JC would be around 700-800 ft. max. We're talking rental buildings here, so no super-high ceilings or anything like that.

There are also two 80-floor rental buildings in Journal Square, a separate 67 floor rental building in Journal Square, and the developers of the three 70-floor towers have a massive amount of adjacent land that they want to develop. They could build a dozen towers on that site.

Can you imagine if they build a dozen roughly 70-floor towers? That side of the Hudson will be insane.

What is up with the name? Height sounds promising, not so sure about those renderings though...

Some of them would most certainly soar over 1,000 feet.

So basically a similar thing to the ghastly but thankfully failed Museum Plaza from Louisville? Yeah, no thanks.

These Jersey City proposals are always exciting - the area continues to become a hot-spot, especially among the young Manhattan working crowd. I'm keeping an open mind with respect to the design. Those renders seem very preliminary and I'm sure more detailed ones will emerge.

Three messy, deconstructivist-lite tall towers will mar the JC skyline. I hope they come up with something better, and those are just placeholders. More traditional looking towers like GS, Merrill, and Trump look so much better than these.

I remember a proposal very similar to this one in that area of Jersey City, but the name of it escapes me right now. It'll come back...

I'm in the minority in that I actually think those renders look decent, although a little less grey and a little more metallic texture would be nice.

love the height and density, hate the renderings.

Disgusting looking proposal and stupid name. Seems like a fantasy proposal too.

I like the phase two of 70-90 Columbus with the two 48 floor towers much better. Seems much more realistic and is much better looking.

Jersey City deserves better than this.

This is breaking ground very shortly.

I think they're building one tower at a time, but not 100% sure. Still, three 70 floor towers will definitely change the skyline west of the Hudson.

And the overall project could eventually be much, much bigger. Mack-Cali owns adjacent land that had been planned for office towers, but demand in Jersey City has shifted in favor of highrise residential. They could eventually have a dozen or so residential towers along the waterfront.
