JERSEY CITY | 30 Journal Square | 42 fl | Pro

Revealed: 30 Journal Square



Quote:
Yet another tower is in the works for Journal Square, which is apparently about to become home to the fourth most impressive skyline in the New York City region; renderings have been posted on Kushner Companies’s website for an Ismael Leyva-designed skyscraper set to rise at 30 Journal Square.

The limited glimpse is still comprehensive, and the skyscraper’s bulk will be impressive; the tower will step-down towards the old Jersey Journal building at 30 Journal Square. While structures worthy of preservation are few and far between in Journal Square, the Jersey Journal’s headquarters definitely fits the bill.

Integrating the historic building will keep some element of the ‘old’ Journal Square alive, even as the neighborhood sets a rapid course for revitalization; besides the latest proposal, two additional mega-projects — City Center Towers, and Journal Squared — will also rise in the vicinity. Together, the developments will play a crucial and beneficial role in transforming the neglected hub, which has massive potential and capacity as a residential commuter node.

In terms of form and function, 30 Journal Square looks to be significantly more attractive than typical outer-urban developments, and besides incorporating the building currently on-site, it will create a street-wall along the rest of its block, which speaks to the project’s pedestrian-friendly form. The rendering comes with a description noting the tower will have 525 apartments, and a floor count reveals the skyscraper will stand slightly over 40 stories tall.

As a rendering I do hope it gets some work done, just not crazy about the layout though I do like the staggered approach of gradually going low to high. It just looks too dense ... saw Leyva's page and the firm does a lot of really nice work, so hoping it's just a general idea placeholder but will be considerably reworked. Very happy though to see Journal Square as the new focus after so much development downtown and the waterfront and look forward to see what Leyva's final design will look like.

Add this 650-foot-tall tower to the list of Jersey buildings being developed by Jared Kushner. The tower will be built on the site of the former Jersey Journal, and will incorporate that newspaper's old building and former sign into the new structure.
