JERSEY CITY | URL® Harborside | 214m | 700ft | 70 fl | Com | 70 fl | 65 fl | Pro

Three-Tower Megaproject Coming to Jersey City Waterfront

Quote:
The first phase of the project, dubbed 'Urban Ready Living,' will be a 69-story residential tower, containing 766 apartments. Construction of phase one is expected to be completed by the end of 2014, which is quite rapid. The developers are planning two more towers of a similar size, which will accompany phase one of the development.

Woohoo! I'm super excited for anything going up in JC, but this project looks phenomenal. Better than a standard glass box for sure, but it's great that these will be rising directly on the waterfront.

wow... two 3 tower projects. JC is on fire! As 60+ floor residential towers, these all should easily exceed JC's tallest.

I think they would come in just under the GS tower, which is almost 800 feet... I would guess these would be around 700-750 feet.

This is great to see buildings this size on both sides of the river.

I'm impressed. Not by the fact that there are three towers, but instead by how awfully ugly they are. Cheap, nasty, modernism.

You mean minimalistic and elegant?

I'm prete convinced that Miami (tho I love it) haven't build nicer building in like.. 50 years?

I think it's a bad rendering we see here. Imagine it in real with the towers in transparant glass. I think it's gonna look amazing! And good to see Jersey City is becoming more dense. Skyscrapers and density are spreading off Manhattan to Jersey, Brooklyn and Queens. Love it!

probably, it will look better in a close up render. This looks quite messy at the moment.

I'm sick of the 'stacked boxes' cliche in recent architecture. Why not just build a normal, classy, modern box? You cannot go wrong with such a design.
But this is not the worst design I've seen. It's much better than the cheap crummy postmodernism that seems to be getting built everywhere nowadays.

Looks similar to a previous project by OMA for this same city.Maybe it1s by the same architect.

There is nothing attractive about stacked blocks for me. City of Capitals has its positives but overall I think its very unattractive, though based on renderings, City of Capitals is far superior.

Yeah this design seems a little bit less uninspired to me, I think we need better renders to be sure, are these official?

Phobos already noticed the OMA style.
The "Rotterdam" bldg in R'dam has a strong resemblence to this project.
Just halve the height of this project and place them direct next to each other.
The result: "OMA God"....

I noticed that too! But we need elevated passageways between the towers for that full 'OMA effect'!

These are from the developer Mack-Cali so they are as official as they get, assuming there isn't a significant change in design or architect. It's the most ambitious residential development yet for the JC waterfront but won't be the tallest as Journal Square sports at least 1 supertall in that 3 tower proposal.

It seems that just as the other three-tower development in JC, The Journal Square Towers, this one is also groundbreaking this year with the first tower

URL Harborside: Work to Begin This Year
http://www.globest.com/news/12_720/n...li-339013.html

Quote:
JERSEY CITY, NJ-TD Bank says in its Regional Multifamily Outlook that, while 2,000 new apartment units will open along New Jersey's waterfont in the next two years, steady deman for them is expected. That demand will mostly flow from New York City where demand is ever more voracious and land is scarce and more expensive to develop.

Mack-Cali CEO Mitchell E. Hersh said last week that his company plans to move forward quickly wth the first 763-unit tower for its URL Harborside project here, as reported in GlobeSt.com last week. The residential towers - three are planned - are a joint venture iwth Ironstate Development.
Quote:
JERSEY CITY, NJ-Ironstate Development Co. and Mack-Cali Realty Corp., whose residential project recently won $33 million in state tax credits, will begin work on the first phase of the project by the end of the year, GlobeSt.com has learned.

URL Harborside, the first phase of a project that will include three residential towers along the Jersey City waterfront, was awarded the credits under terms of the Economic Opportunity Act signed into law last month. The project is expected to create approximately 700 construction jobs.

The first-phase tower will be a 69-story building with 763 apartment units, built atop a parking pedestal.

An exact date for the groundbreaking has not yet been announced. URL Harborside (Urban Ready Living™) will ultimately include three residential rental towers, ancillary retail space, and parking. It adds a housing component to Mack-Cali’s Harborside, a “city within a city” office complex.
