Usually, the images of GE are at least one year dated, but now they update parts of the NY area with images just a couple of months old. Here's the image of GE for Journal Square from september. We can already see the building several stories high.


Also some updates of the tower, courtesy of Oron Zchut

This is really underwhelming. The renders look 10x better than what we're seeing.

It doesn't look anything special now, but I'll hold judgment until all the towers are up. Even then it will take some time to make the area look "nice" - I grew up in this neighborhood in the 80s and 90s and we called it "Urinal Square" so there ya go....

Haha guys, I hate to say it, but use logic for a second. This is a MASSIVE development, in what was and is a rather underserved area. Clearly the developers have to appeal on price point to market these, so these buildings I'm sure have been massively value engineered. Maybe we'll see quality as the land value raises and this area is redeveloped, but while its a "frontier" so to speak, dont expect high quality materials used in construction. Whatever the case, it's so far from Manhattan, and barely visible, they could make this building from paper mache and we'd never know, viewing from the city.

Personally, I'm happy to see the inland areas of Jersey City/New Jersey redeveloped, and this is heaven sent to me.

This building's position on the skyline makes it as tall as the tallest in Manhattan due to perspective. It will be even better when there are at least 6 more towers (2 Journal Squared, 2 city center towers, the tower on the cliff, and the Jersey Journal tower.)

Fantastic shot Tim! So many cranes, so much going up. It's mind blowing.
