I like the blue hint they gave those towers. I take it those blue elements are permanent design element.

Wish we knew a definitive height, definitely looks a good deal taller than 225m/740ft.

The tallest tower was originally to go as high as 82 floors and the renders may still show that. It's been hard nailing down a definitive floor count for these as well as heights.

It will be 74 floors, and roughly 800' tall. You can take the floor-count as definitive.

Work starts on NJ's tallest building by HWKN & Handel Architects
http://www.dezeen.com/2014/03/18/new...el-architects/

Quote:
construction is now underway on a 222-metre skyscraper by New York studios HWKN and Handel Architects that is set to become the tallest building in the state of New Jersey.

Named Journal Squared, the residential development will be located in the Journal Square district of Jersey City, adjacent to the Port Authority Trans-Hudson (PATH) rail station that links the city with Manhattan.

Designed as a collaboration between HWKN and Handel Architects, the development will accommodate 1840 apartments within a cluster of three pointed towers, each clad externally with metal panels.

The 222-metre structure will rise up at the front of the site and will be accompanied by towers of 193 and 175 metres, making it visible from the New Jersey Turnpike and from New York across the water.

The base of the towers are designed to break down into smaller volumes to relate to the scale of surrounding buildings, offering a series of ground-floor restaurants and shops.

"Our goal was to design an urban space that knits together the existing urban fabric of Journal Square, while also creating an iconic presence in the skyline that can be seen from Manhattan," said Matthias Hollwich, partner-in-charge at HWKN.

"We designed a building that works equally well at the scale of the Turnpike, where hundreds of thousands of people will see it every day, and at the scale of the human who walks and lives in the city," added HWKN partner Marc Kushner.

Integral to the proposal are public realm improvements that will overhaul the rear entrance to the station, replacing loading bays and parking areas with a tree-filled public plaza expected to play host to farmer's markets and outdoor film screenings.

"Journal Square offers a new urban community, not just for the people who will live here, but for the region. It will be a place that people will be passionate about," commented Handel Architects principal Gary Handel.

The project is funded by property developer KRE Group. The first phase of development will be the smallest of the three towers and is scheduled for completion in 2016.

Does anyone know if the towers' construction has kicked off yet? I've heard there was a modification proposal to shorten them by a few floors - not sure if this is indeed the case?

Construction has begun on three-tower residential building in Journal Square

http://www.nj.com/jjournal-news/inde...l#incart_river
Quote:
Construction on "Journal Squared," a massive three-tower project that will include the tallest residential building in New Jersey, has begun in Jersey City's Journal Square.

The KRE Group project, which is located between Magnolia, Pavonia, and Summit Avenues, just east of the Port Authority transportation hub, will include a 54-story tower with 540 units; a 70-story tower with 700 units; and a 60-story tower with 600 units. The project received a 30-year tax abatement from the city last November.

Once completed, the 70-story tower is expected to be the tallest residential building in New Jersey, according to Hollwich Kushner's website, surpassing the 55-story Trump Tower Residences in Downtown Jersey City, which opened in 2008.

The development's phase I tower is expected to be complete by 2016, while the second phase will be finished five years after the first tower is built, said Jonathan Kushner, president of The KRE Group.

Kushner added that the final phase of the project will be completed approximately five years after the second phase, noting that market conditions can impact the timetable.

Last week, construction on the site was clearly active, with workers in hard hats walking around mountains of dirt and at least one crane moving a gigantic bundle of wooden planks.
Quote:
George Cahn, a spokesman for KRE, told The Jersey Journal last week that an official groundbreaking for Journal Squared will take place sometime this fall.
