I'm not a fan because I don't like the spread out look of many cities' skylines, I prefer it to be central.

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

Offtopic but if I had to vote to allow Jersey City to be the 6th Brourough I would gladly say yes. JC is almost my second home, I go there to hang out almost all the time.
Back ontopic, I feel like something is almost too good to be true. These towers are amazing and seem to come out of nowhere. Since it is in prep when has this been approved?

US cities cannot cross state lines. The possibility of a supertall along the Jersey City waterfront always exists but the economics of developing supertalls can't easily coexist with the highly competitive bulk office space market there.

They're also governed as separate cities, each side has their own government. They're just considered one city because of proximity, they're twin cities if we're being accurate.

We New Jerseyites would never considering giving Hudson County to NYC , Never!. If you look on a map , that doesn't even make sense. This is one of 10 supertalls being proposed for Urban Jersey...neighboring Newark has some big plans. The fact that Jersey City and Newark account for most of NJ's economy means that would never happen.

Jersey Journal

Quote:
Plan would put 3 towers next to Jersey City's Journal Square PATH

Published: Thursday, August 16, 2012, 7:20 AM Updated: Thursday, August 16, 2012, 2:20 PM



Journal Square could soon be home to Jersey City’s largest buildings, with the developers behind some Downtown developments hoping to break ground next year on three residential/office towers that could reach up to 75 stories and contain as many as 1,800 units.

Though members of the surrounding neighborhood are reportedly nervous about the size of the towers, developers KRE Group say they will be a dream for commuters because of a planned, direct connection to the PATH station.

“You wouldn’t even have to be exposed to the elements,” said KRE’s Jeff Persky last week in the group’s Marin Boulevard office, where there’s a model of the three towers.

The towers will be located just north of the public drop-off for the PATH station in the area of Magnolia and Summit avenues. The drop-off area will remain, and KRE is working with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to renovate that end of Magnolia to become a pedestrian plaza.

KRE will also renovate access to the PATH station on that side, replacing the current steps and ramps.





Persky said the group hopes to put a shovel in the ground by the end of 2013 on the first tower, which would contain 500 residential units along with retail on the ground floor. All three towers would likely house about 1,800 units total, he said.

City spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill said the city is “looking forward” to the groundbreaking, noting that a project of this density makes sense for Journal Square, where PATH ridership is fourth-highest in the area. “It will create much-needed construction and permanent jobs, as well as ratables, in an area that is poised for a renaissance,” Morrill said.



The project is just one of at least three possibly transformative developments planned for Journal Square. Washington, D.C.-based Multi-Employer Property Trust plans two towers for the lot just south of the PATH station a long-delayed project that city officials fear may never happen while developer Robinhood Plaza wants to construct a residential tower as high as 42 stories on a lot across Summit Avenue from the planned KRE towers.

A city official called that project “a pipe dream,” adding that the KRE plan is the city’s “best shot at jump-starting the Square.”

Jersey City is a suburb of NYC; traditionally, areas within an MSA are considered to be an adjunct of the central city and Jersey City is clearly part of "Greater New York".

It isn't a suburb of NYC. it's it own city in a different state. It's a part of the metro area.
