Nice! There will be very tall towers in JC, Queens, and Brooklyn.

Two Three-Towered Projects Set to Begin in Jersey City

October 28, 2013

Development in Jersey City has been relatively dormant since the recession, but two major projects are about to break ground, and promise to jump-start the next wave of construction – especially as the buildings will be among the tallest in all of New Jersey.

Closest to Manhattan, Urban Ready Living Harborside is about to begin construction – the development was announced last year, and will consist of three residential towers, each soaring roughly 70 stories. Their design seems to mimic Herzog & de Meuron’s 56 Leonard to some degree, though the ‘Jenga-effect’ is not quite as dramatic, given the lack of a starchitect budget. Nevertheless, the new skyscrapers will help anchor a section of Downtown Jersey City that needs more new residents and an increase in density, and the contribution to the city’s skyline will be significant.

At 700 feet, Urban Ready Living’s triplets will become the most prominent residential towers in the neighborhood. The first building will deliver 763 units, and the developers are Mack-Cali and Ironstate. If architecture cannot be distinguished, it can at least be identifiable, and Urban Ready Living should accomplish the latter in a tasteful manner.

[...]
700 feet seems like a nominal figure for these towers but I'll throw it into the title.

Despite the declaration that this would break ground before the end of the year, ground remains unbroken.

Trio Of Zig-Zagging Rental Towers Now Rising In Jersey City



Quote:
Ground broke today on the first building, which will rise 69-stories to be the tallest residential building in New Jersey (isn't that cute?). Called URL Harborside, the project is being developed by Mack-Cali Realty Corporation, along with partner Ironstate Development Company. "URL" stands for "Urban Ready Living," which a press release says is a concept developed by Ironstate to "provide people with innovative housing that maximizes space, reduces energy consumption, is more environmentally sustainable, offers close and easy access to public transportation, and provides public areas that foster community." The buildings, which look like blue boxes that were haphazardly stacked, were designed by Dutch firm Concrete, so it goes without saying that they'll have plenty of flood-proofing features.

The first tower, named URL Harborside 1, will hold 763 rental units, and when all three towers are complete by mid-2016, there will be a total of 2,358 apartments. No word on pricing or what types of units they will be, but the architects' website provides a few more details:

The towers of 220m. and 66 stories high consist of 2500 apartments, commercial space and a parking garage. [...] The plan is part of a new housing concept developed by concrete, based on affordable, compact but spatial, partly furnished rental apartments...

Ground Breaking at Harborside URL site?



Quote:
We posted in back in July about the plans for the “state’s tallest apartment building” in downtown Jersey City. Little has been seen around the vacant lot since then until this week when several news outlets reported a ground breaking of the Harborside URL™ site for the first tower. We were curious to see where they had begun so we walked over and found…well…nothing. Let’s hope that this is not the pace to follow in this project. There were a few piles of dirt but they have been deposited there rather than excavated.



These nifty new signs signifying the shape of the new towers have been installed recently though.

I think these are the kind of tower future generations will look at and wonder 'what the hell where they thinking?!'

This stacked box massing looks tacky and outdated. Its just a tired concept that peaked half a decade ago.

God forbid architects design something with a sense or order and competence. The attempt to be transgressive and cheeky too often results in eyesores like these. Their mentality reminds me of teenagers who try desperately to stand out.

Possible start to construction?

There are a few more piles (which led to the last false guesses for construction start), a construction trailer, and a line of pallets of assorted construction materials.

I agree. They just don't make trailers like they used too anymore.

Have been tracking this site for a while now, and decided to join and contribute!
I was passing by the URL site today and saw some initial activity starting to take shape... At least with a few workers walking the site and a compact terrain loader/dozer and excavators standing by. Hopefully the construction picks up pace soon!
BTW, shouldn' this thread have a "Jersey City" tag to it?..

I like the design. It's tall for JC and strikingly unique on the skyline. T
