This tower has gone off the radar, no action. Is it dead?

It often can take a while with proposed towers, but after month or so a forumer will post some news. That's how it usually goes here.

Work slated to begin on first tower in late 2013:

Quote:
Dec. 6 2012

Three residential towers containing nearly 2,000 units may be built in Journal Square in coming years, with the Jersey City Planning Board this week approving a plan that city officials hope will jumpstart development in the heart of the city.

The towers would sit adjacent to the Journal Square PATH station, just west of Summit Avenue, and the project includes a public plaza connecting Summit to the transportation hub.

Developers KRE Group are behind the project, and the company hopes to begin construction by the end of 2013. The board’s decision was unanimous. “KRE are proven developers in Jersey City with successful projects such as 225 Marin,” said city spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill. “It is classic example of transit-oriented development with density located next to mass transit.”

The three towers are just one of a number of possibly transformative developments planned for Journal Square, including a two-tower project long planned for the lot just south of the PATH station and across the street from The Jersey Journal offices.

---

The first phase of the project would be a 54-story tower with 540 units, followed by a 70-story structure containing 700 units, while the third would have 60 stories and 600 units. Each tower would have a retail or restaurant component.

I held off on posting this since I couldn't get a decent closer shot but hopefully it will help people visualize the location of this project.

No they are nowhere near the main skyline. I even think they are too high in the first pic.

Well, Jersey City skyline wasn't very dense to begin with, all towers are quite spread out, so it's not that lonely, btw this project is already a skyline by itself.

There are more towers planned for the Journal Square area besides this development so it shouldn't appear so isolated for long. Journal Square is getting a big push from the city which controls these properties and which, along with the Port Authority, stands to gain from their development. The Hudson River skyline to this point, has been an entirely private affair.

Nothin' yet

The site is still a bare fence-enclosed field. The sign has not changed and still says that construction will start in Summer 2012.

it is by the Jersey City college - there is a plan to create another high rise neighborhood there. If the second tower will get built it will be about 1000 ft or 305 meters.
