I'm a Jersey City resident and don't find it ugly, it's not terribly bold or imaginative but surprisingly decent for a Gene Kaufman building. Oh, I definitely think Jersey City deserves better and will get better it beats the original zebra striped Columbus Tower. Don't like the cantilever of the hotel over the PATH station, but the towers should be okay. Other developments nearby are pretty nice, the first of the Provost Towers and 110First Street but seriously, those vents for air conditioning/ heating have got to go. I read that certain new less than luxury developments are foregoing them, it's much more economical now to provide central air/heating and no longer true that it's cost prohibitive to all but the deluxe luxury condo market.

Looks good, apart for the uncladded part of course.
Reminds me a bit of the Biltmore Tower in NYC.

From Yesterday, cladding has inched up a little higher and piling has started for the 15 story hotel in the front.

For a Gene Kaufman tower, actually doesn't look bad. Not saying it's a winner but when the other tower is done will help fill in the skyline well. However the original design and architect was considerably better, and I hope Kaufman's "contributions" to Jersey City's future ends with this one, because given the opportunity he'd revert to form and put up a real stinker.

Any status update on the second tower? I assumed the second tower and hotel would be done at the same time.

They have recently started piling for the hotel, which will be 15 stories high. The second 50 story tower will begin around the time that the first one finishes. The still have some work to do at the base and interiors. The cladding is almost done at the top, having taken a long time to finally get done. Once the interior service elevator is operational, they will remove the exterior elevators and finish that strip of cladding.

For a Gene Kaufman building, not that bad. Though I preferred the original architect's version... Kaufman's is a downgrade, but at least the two towers and hotel when done will bring the area more to life, along with it's Provost Square neighbors(two more towers going there) and the Silverman site in between hopefully someday soon will see the light of day.

70 Columbus is completed. 80 Columbus is the 15 story hotel underway now. 90 Columbus, the other 50 story twin, has not started yet.
