JERSEY CITY | 30 Journal Square | 200m+ | 656ft+ | 72 fl | App

this new tower for Jersey City's booming Journal Square neighborhood should well exceed 200 meters.

YIMBY: Kushner Companies’ 72-Story 30 Journal Square Approved, Revealed

Per the approved plans, the building will have 741 residential units, 15,030 square feet of retail, 96,602 square feet of office, and 741 parking spaces.
The tower will become Morris Adjmi’s largest project in the New York region, and its look appears to draw from the same body of industrial-styled work that the architect is well known for. In this case, dark bands will criss-cross the facade, dividing it into larger blocks. From a distance, the building almost seems to dissolve into a stack of glassy bricks, which will definitely make for a positive contrast against the more drab architecture that currently predominates the area.
The pinnacle of 30 Journal Square may actually outrank the future 99 Hudson Street as the tallest visual spot on the Jersey City skyline, thanks to the neighborhood’s approximately 100-foot base elevation, but we only have a floor count (though ~800 feet would be a good guess).

72 stories! Journal square's boom is pretty incredible. I also like that this has a little bit of architectural flair which is welcome in Jersey City.

According to CIA at Skyscraperpage the height is 799 ft. However it was made known that Kushner didn't use the full density potential this project allows and might revise this and/or the One Journal Square towers upwards and with more units if the market really is good...looking possibly to how the first tower of three on the Journal Squared project on the other side of the Square (which is a project of KRE, Kushner's uncle and cousin's firm) rents out. CIA predicted if the market is hot no doubt Jared Kushner would return to the Planning Board with an even bigger project.

One Journal Square Gets New Look, Big Height Bump

Yesterday, YIMBY featured an update on Kushner Companies’ 30 Journal Square, which has transformed from a 40-something-story building into a 72-story tower. Today, we have a fresh look at One Journal Square, which has also experienced a significant height bump. What was originally supposed to host two 50-odd story buildings will instead give rise to one tower of 56 floors, and another of 79 floors.

The smaller building is already under construction, and plans for the larger tower were approved on Tuesday. The 79-story building will have a roof topping-out 892 feet above street level, which would make it taller than any skyscraper already completed in New Jersey. Once finished, it will stand just eight feet shy of the state’s future record-holder, at 99 Hudson Street.

Woods Bagot is the project’s architect, and the building (and its neighbor) will become a formidable presence on the Journal Square skyline. Journal Squared‘s 70-story and 730-foot tower was originally expected to be the tallest in the area, but will now be surpassed by both One Journal Square, as well as the 72-story 30 Journal Square.

The project will hold 1,725 residential units between the two towers, with the lower levels also including 88,754 square feet of retail, 126,937 square feet of office, and 910 parking spaces.

With such limited existing built context, despite the area’s excellent transit connectivity, including retail is especially important, as is ensuring pedestrians can access it easily. Journal Square Plaza will also be rebuilt as part of the overall project, and the combination of renovations to public space alongside the addition of new retail will go a long ways towards continuing the neighborhood’s renaissance.

While plans have now been approved, Kushner Companies is not using the full density allowed by the site, which speaks to its enormous scope. But that also means there could be last-minute revisions, give or take a few floors.

The first phase of the project is expected to wrap in 2018, while the second part does not yet have an anticipated completion date.

YIMBY usually get things right but no construction, nor even groundbreaking, has started yet. And there was no mention of the towers being done simultaneously once groundbreaking does start. Especially reported by Nikolai himself, kind of sloppy and surprising since we usually get great stuff from him and his other writers at YIMBY.
