Renderings retrieved from the website of Handel Architects reveal a massive new project coming to Journal Square in Jersey City. While no height figures have been released, Handel does state that the tallest building will rise to 82 floors. Given modern floor heights, that means the tallest tower is likely over 1,000 feet tall--a major milestone that Jersey City has yet to surpass (its current tallest, the Goldman Sachs Tower, is 781 feet to the roof).

Jersey City doesn't have any boroughs.

Jersey City Independent

Quote:
New Development Planned for Journal Square Would Include the City’s Tallest Tower, Fundamentally Change the Neighborhood

By Matt Hunger • Aug 7th, 2012



The plastic model replica resting on a table in the offices of Kushner Real Estate, or KRE, in Jersey City shows three towers that appear to be taller than any other buildings in the city. With the tallest tentatively set at 85 stories, KRE Vice President Jeff Persky says that once completed, they will be.

There are other tall buildings in the city, of course, among them, 30 Hudson, the Merrill Lynch Building, Newport Tower, Trump Plaza and 70 Greene Street. But those are all Downtown, and none are more than 65 stories.

If all goes as planned, these will be the new towers at the heart of Journal Square. They may end up looking taller than they are, situated as they would be in a neighborhood filled with three-story townhouses and the occasional 11-story apartment building. Persky says that by the 9th or 10th floor there will already be an unimpeded view of the New York City skyline. And on the top floor, he says, “just imagine the view.”

Called Journal Squared (or J2), the ambitious project would bring 2,000 units to three glass-tower buildings in the style of what’s found at “Wall Street West” – but to the fallen-on-hard-times city center rather than the waterfront. One of the towers may also be used for business, Persky adds.

“Grove Street was nothing like it is today,” he says, recalling the area five, six years ago. “Like Journal Square today, Grove Street used to be a lot of check cashing spots and dollar stores. If we were successful there” with the construction of KRE’s Grove Pointe building directly outside the Grove Street PATH Station, “why shouldn’t this be the next step? It’s three minutes down the PATH [at Journal Square].”

[...]

Basically, whatever gets built at this PATH accessible site will be HUGE.
That's actually at a different spot, on the other side of the tracks.
This project is located here, in the blue area, with the plaza in green.
