JERSEY CITY | 235 Grand St | FT | 45 FLOORS

New York YIMBY:

Revealed: Liberty Harbor North’s 235 Grand Street

Quote:
The first renderings are up for yet another skyscraper that will soon begin construction on the Jersey City waterfront, at 235 Grand Street. The tower will be part of Liberty Harbor North, and Ironstate is the developer; the architect is HLW, and their website has additional images of the project.

Several complications must be addressed before work can start on the project, as the site is currently occupied by an old coal bunker that houses a non-profit. The organization is moving to another new Ironstate building at 18 Park — designed by HWKN — which is opening this June. Once the re-location is complete, demolition can begin on the old building, and construction on 235 Grand Street is expected to start later this year.

Ironstate’s website indicates that the tower will stand 45 stories tall, with 670 units in total; an additional mid-rise component will be located next-door. While Liberty Harbor North has a long ways to go before full build-out, the progress at 235 Grand Street will further enhance the Jersey City waterfront, which is booming with new development.
[...]

Completion of 235 Grand is expected in 2015.

Nice to see the parking garage wrapped in townhouses. A good design all around-I like the crown too.

Also nice to see development moving inland.

The boom in JC is verging on insane. Everything seems to be happening at once.

While the skyline is currently moderately impressive, by 2020 it could conceivably be better than most large cities in the US, surpassing downtowns of Seattle, Atlanta, and LA. I have heard inklings that a supertall is on the horizon for JC as well.

^ I don't think JC is even on the same level as those 3 cities. They have many large and very recognizable office towers. JC has mostly nondescript residential towers and a few stumpy nondescript office towers.

I'll give you Portland, San Diego and Charlotte however.

I would say that right now it is comparable to the above cities, but by 2020 it will be ranking with the second-tier skylines in the US, right below those of Manhattan and Chicago.

I'm sure someone has #s for 500'+ structures, but JC will easily outpace most major metro areas in that regard within five years.

Off Wiki, JC has 5 buildings of 500'+ at the moment, and 7 if you include the Monaco Towers which are 499' tall.

In the near-future, there will be at least nine more towers of 500'+, with five rising in Journal Square and the San Remo + URL rising in JC. That is probably leaving out several developments, as well.

Several of the above will be above 700', too -- the URL Towers and JSquared.

As of today, Atlanta has 15 buildings of 500'+, LA has 22, and Seattle has 13. None of the above compare to JC in terms of the volume of skyscrapers u/c.

While LA may be out of reach, JC certainly stands a chance at overtaking both Atlanta and Seattle by 2020...

This is so very exciting! Every couple days there is a new tower it seems.

Jersey City is very pro-development and is not afraid of going tall. This development is a short walk to the Grove Street PATH station. Midtown or lower Manhattan is less than 10 minutes away from there. Jersey City is an affordable and attractive option for those looking for a quick commute to the city. Developers have taken notice and are trying to meet the demand. There are also fairly generous tax-incentives being offered with every new development, which takes away a lot of the risk to the builder. As long as NYC continues to see growth, Jersey City should be able to ride the coattails.

Although, it's not just residential growth or overflow from New York. It's a large part but not the full story. There is a decently-sized business district on the waterfront. The PATH trains are completely full in both directions during rush hour due to New Yorkers' heading for Jersey City for the reverse commute. Older generations may have preferred to live in the suburbs and commute in and out via NJ Transit or private ca,r but younger generations want to live near where they work and be close to the bright lights of the city. My experience anyway...

I wonder what will be proposed later this week.

Being developed Ironstate and Kushner Real Estate Group (KRE), this residential building is being constructed on the site of an old coal bunker and will have 670 rental units. Though it won't come close to being one of the state's tallest, it'll still rise to 475 feet high upon completion. [Rendering via HLW]

235 Grand Should Add to Jersey City’s Skyline By 2019





Quote:
Demolition has commenced at 235 Grand Street in Jersey City’s Liberty Harbor neighborhood, and a new rental building plus some added green space will be coming to the site before you know it.

The property, at Grove Street’s southern terminus, was home to the Boys and Girls Club of Hudson County for over 30 years. The modest building, which was first built as a storage facility in 1912, became outdated, inefficient and costly to maintain over the years, so the club signed on to a redevelopment agreement with Ironstate Development and KRE Group that would help them obtain a more modern space.

That deal led to the construction of 18 Park and a brand new, state-of-the-art facility for the Boys and Girls Club on the development’s ground floor that opened in 2014. Now that the club has a new home, the old one is in the process of being torn down to make way for a new piece of Jersey City’s skyline.

Ironstate Development will also be partnering with KRE on this project, which will rise 45 stories and feature 549 luxury rental residences. A 6,380-square foot retail space and a 347-spot parking garage are also being included in the project, which features a modern glass look designed by HLW Architects.
