I like this development. The tower looks modern with that reflective glass.

The first Tower is already topped out!

You can see it looming over another recently finished building across the street.

Luxury Fort Lee high-rise transforms Bergen County skyline - See more at: http://www.northjersey.com/fortlee/L....nGzIctWH.dpuf
Quote:
It was March 2009 when developer Allen Goldman met with internationally renowned Boston-based architect Howard Elkus. The two hunkered down at a table near the rear of the Plaza Diner on Lemoine Avenue in Fort Lee and spent nine hours sketching onto the back of place mats their vision for a development they believed would transform the landscape of Bergen County forever.

Thousands of hours and countless versions later, Goldman, the president of SJP Residential Properties, was able to stand Tuesday on the 40th floor of The Modern — the eastern half of Fort Lee’s half-billion-dollar downtown redevelopment project. When The Modern is completed, it will feature the tallest structures in Bergen County — two 47-story glass-encapsulated residential towers, which proponents are hailing as a gateway into the region.

Last week the first of the two high-rises reached its maximum height, 798 feet above sea level. The Modern towers 194 feet above the George Washington Bridge’s highest point, according to Victor Cividini, vice president of construction for SJP.
Quote:
While leading The Record on an exclusive tour of the grounds, Goldman reported Tuesday that the project is slightly ahead of schedule, and the first building should be ready for occupancy in late 2014.
Quote:
Phase Two, likely to break ground in early 2016, will include the construction of the second residential tower, a restaurant, a history museum and a three-screen theater and a park.

Beautiful! I love the reflectivity of the glass and the sleek shape. It's like a more modest John Hancock Building.

Chris Christie's "Bridgegate" scandal has had an unexpected benefit; a nice image of the progress for this building.

By shutting down the GWB, Chris Christie has become the ultimate NIMBY! People are beginning to question the impact that the Modern and several other developments have had on the bridge traffic and if the bridge closing may have threatened the development.

Yes that is a San Francisco news article.

"Called Hudson Lights, Phase 1 of the development near the entrance to the George Washington Bridge will have 517,000 s/f of commercial and residential space."
...............................................

"Near the entrance" is something of an understatement -- it is very close to the traffic lanes that Governor Christie's team notoriously shut down for four days last year.

There's a theory that the shutdown was a signal to the developers to include some of Christie's local associates in the presumably lucrative deal. Right now, all the developers are from out-of-state.
IOW, there's another layer to this project.

What an elegantly simple building.
But will an identical twin enhance the first structure, or diminish it?
I think the second one should be about a half-dozen stories taller, or a half-dozen shorter, for a nicer composition.

No change on the northern facade since the last time I saw it. Wonder what's with the hold-up?
