JERSEY CITY | 111 First Street | 52 fl | Canceled

Rem Koolhaas has something in store for NJ's Gold Coast:

Not much to post about right now sadly, but i thought jersey city deserved some attention for once. The current lot is presently construction fill from former structure's demolition + soil. It is right across the street from the old Hudson & Manhattan Railroad (PATH) power station, which originally supplied the entire system with electricity, from traction power for trains to station lighting and everything in between. I will update this as i find more information. The commission was granted in 2007, since then things being stored on the lot temporarily have mainly been moved. I am unsure if this project is financed or what is holding it up, but i can say that with the pace of jersey city construction, i expect this tower to take approximately 2-3 years from first shovel to open doors. High winds in the area often cause work stops.
