Well, it quite is an outlying area. It's not the central part of the metro, therefore it is outside of the center, which I personally would rather not like to see developed. I just really don't like scattered skylines.

I would say it is very central. JC is basically the 6th boro.

Wonderful to know that major developments are not constrained to the 5 boroughs. Go Jersey City.
Lets hope this sets a new precedence for development in the region, knowing they can encourage growth in their own backyard rather than relying on Manhattan.

That's said about Yonkers too.

Man, this development would make a skyline by itself, it's like the Hudson Yards of NJ.

Hate Ny? You can speak for all New Jersey people? Doubt it. Actually many Jersey people seem to like that label from what I've noticed. I suppose it depends on everyone's point of view.

Hate NY if you want, consume yourself with hate, fat lot of good that will do you though. Face it, if you hatred comes from feeling slighted or dissed by NY, reciprocating that hate really will have no positive outcome. It is just hate for hate's sake. Hating is usually a big fat waste of energy, no offense.

Yeah no it's not. It is it's own city, in it's own state.

throwing personal insults is immature , You do not live in this region so you do not know the various grips and things we hate your an observer... I was being sarcastic ,with we hate NY , but not with the labeling of 6th boro.. If you lived in this region you would know the various grips , clashes , and jabs we take at each other.... For the most part its just for fun , but it does get tense when somebody tries to label Urban Jersey as the 6th Boro..... New Jersey is not New York , actually the only people trying to merge the 2 online at least are transplants/Hipsters which we can all agree have become a region issue.....but thats for another topic.

It drives me nuts as well. It's on thing to say Yonkers, or Nassau is a 6th boro. Let Jersey have its own thing.

Guys lets stay on topic. JC is so close to NYC that it and other towns to the north are like 6,7,8,9 and etc boros of NYC, but it is still New Jersey. Besides are we that childish to start measuring dick lengths? For all I care all this development is around NYC and I can't care less about jurisdiction of the cities. I should not live in NYC to know it or love it.

From what I have recently read the project will be done in three phases, first starting late this year. Changes seem to have been made in the heights of the buildings, which may well no longer qualify them as supertalls but skyscarapers. First one intended to be built is 54 stories, followed in 2015 by the 70 story tallest and shortly afterwards a 60 story building. Guess height estimates are between 550 feet and 800 feet...if anyone has the actual intended stories/ height it would be appreciated but it appears that they will not be 82, 70 and 70 though they will still make an impressive impact on the Jersey City skyline.
