Thanks for clarifying! Maybe we'll get two big tower projects!

Fair enough, but as far as skylines go, JC certainly is part of the overall NYC skyline, so having a new tallest is good for NYC as well

Well, there have been a lot of supertall proposals for Northern NJ over the past 25 years and as yet, nada. So I'm hoping this one will happen.

JC's skyline is moreso part of Manhattan's than that of Brooklyn or Queens since, from many vantage points in Midtown and the UWS, the buildings in JC appear to be on Manhattan and part of the downtown skyline.

Facade and shape of 432.



Far away but too tall to miss. Hope they match in the end

Wow, I hope they are serious with this proposal, it's separated from the main JC cluster a little but it would be insane if it get's built. Going up and down the Hudson would be just mind-boggling, Hudson Yards, WTC, this, 1000 footers in every direction you look. Hopefully Brooklyn or LIC can join the party soon.

JC is directy across the Hudson from Lower Manhattan. It's the "6th borough."

This was a city project, there is no developer. This is most likely a vision for now I feel.

This looks like it is set way back in away from the waterfront - even around the Journal Square area.

Is that true?

If so, it won't have as much impact on the the overall NY/NJ skyline as folks here hope.

Yup, this project will be by Journal Square based on their web site.

That sucks. Had it been waterfront it would really have added to the skyline. At Journal Square it won't.

That does suck! Why would you build by Journal Square? You will get a lot more prospective buyers/renters on the waterfront.

Someone over at WNY stated that this was a vision for now, and that there is no developer. It was a vision commissioned by the city.

I wouldn't jump the gun on this being a vision rather than a proposal. Jersey City wants the land developed ASAP and they held the competition for a reason; if the incentives are there, this will get built. I don't think it's likely to begin construction soon (maybe 2013-14?), but I think it fits the label of 'proposal' much more accurately than 'vision'. Indeed, given it was commissioned by the city it shouldn't have to go through any NIMBY hurdles, a major plus factor for eventual construction.

Just okay. However, I'm not a huge fan of developing outlying areas, i would rather large developments occur in the core of a metro.

It's hardly an outlying area, come on! It's not some far flung suburb. JC is basically adjacent to Manhattan, and JSQ is close enough to the core.

Why are you not a fan? Do you expect NJ to just sit there and let NY have it all?
