It is being gut renovated to remain an industrial warehouse building.

So it's not being turned into residential? Seems odd for that location to remain a warehouse.

It is going to be public storage - last I heard. Ground floor retail I believe, as well. There were some lawsuits regarding its use (according to the PAD, it's supposed to have artists' lofts or whatnot), but I think these were settled. Work seems to have picked up recently, at least on the interior - they had a big concrete pour about a week ago.

I agree that it seems like it should be residential. Considering the amount of new buildings going up in the area though, guess it can't hurt to have some storage, as long as the ground floor is done properly.

From 4/17 - steel/concrete going up at Marin Residences, 325/333 Grand and... Gull's Cove 2!

144-146 Newark Ave - looks like the render


Coldwell Banker opening up in the base


144 1st St


143 Second St


San Remo site - wonder if/when they are planning to start this one


Marin Residences




Hamilton Square South








Embankment House




Revetment House site


Curious - what are they doing with the "other side" of the sites (ie between 12th St and the building). The buildings aren't that deep. Parking?

Hamilton House


Soho West - first building topped out, second building rising








Cast Iron Lofts 2 - open? Window curtains say yes..


286-298 Coles St - big project. After approval to shrink their studios (and thus increase unit size), demolition has started in earnest - previous building on site nearly fully demolished (probably is by now)












This is going to be a big project - Rafael Vinoly designed, looks like 5 buildings, over 1150 units, 20 stories+, a park, etc. The developer, Hoboken Brownstone, is the same as the old project that was intended to be built on the old Van Leer chocolate factory site.

Speaking of which....


Soil testing rigs, on site at Van Leer Place






And the other site


They're both included in this map, from the Hamilton Park Neighborhood Association


Soho West area, from Hoboken Ave

McGinley Square/Montgomery

75-81 Jordan Ave - asking for 6 stories, 35 units


National Guard Armory - being renovated/repaired


711 Montgomery (16 stories) and 700 Montgomery (21 Stories - St Peter's tower) - both still lots






725 Bergen Ave - imminent demolition (Eglentowicz sign). One of KABR's two projects at this corner, the other being the larger 720-726 Bergen Ave across the street






The other site, 720-726 Bergen


The Monticello site


136 Summit Ave, owned by Titanium Realty and planned to be converted to condos


Hill Top View


Fairmount Ave site


Whitlock Cordage, from near the Beacon


The Hague, which supposedly opened this weekend. The Beacon is now complete. I wonder what they'll do with the empty lot next to it, assuming they own it.




550 Johnston Ave - demolished and cleared. Owned by the JCRA


Montgomery Gardens - quiet


Catherine Todd Senior Apartments






County Prep High School - Applied Sciences Academy








Brunswick Estates - some grounds work has started

More downtown

367 1st Street - unique little building. I like it. Not so much the base (would have preferred a different material) but the shape is cool






124 Brunswick




129 Brunswick


367 3rd


318 Newark, 377 5th and recently approved 375 5th




377 and 375 5th


361 Newark Ave (aka Mill Rocks)






380 Newark, 17-19 Division St and 25-27 Division St




25-27 Division St


461-469 Newark Ave - doesn't really seem like anything here. I'll pass by it occasionally


White Eagle Hall




333/325 Grand St








54 Bright St




28 Bright St and 265 York St








Gull's Cove 2 - starting to rise!




193-213 Van Vorst








Crane base






I can't quite figure out where the Perkins Center (St Peter's Prep athletic center) is being built in relation to this project.

Marin Boulevard roadworks


Sussex Ave renovations








Washington St


Hyatt House




Other - road works on Hoboken Ave

Nice update. The other side of the Embankment House I believe is still in pending litigation between the owner and the city. City wants to use this property and model it after the Highline in NYC.

Yeah on a dollar per square foot basis somebody hasn't done the math recently. The Oakman is selling in the $800 to $1,000 per square foot condo. That makes that pile of crap worth more as rubble than whatever work they're doing now.

I wonder if I walked past you on Saturday - were you by any chance by Healy's Tavern at some point?

Anyway, the "smaller" projects - from 4/30

Starting with 480 Newark/17-19 Division St/390 Newark/....

Still trying to figure out how many projects are taking place here. Both 17-19 Division and 380 Newark have approved projects. The larger pile driver is actually on the Division Street site, already piling, while the parking lot hasn't even been torn up for 380 Newark...but there's nothing separating the sites. Plus, there's a smaller pile driver sitting on or nearer to the site of the recently demolished auto shop. If anyone has an answer, let me know. Otherwise, I guess I'll just wait to see how it plays out over the next few months.

Larger Pile driver, on the Division St site




Piles, stored on the 380 Newark site


Both pile drivers, in opposite "corners"




Reminder: 380 Newark Ave


17-19 Division St (possibly)

I will be very surprised if the San Remo starts anytime soon!
Also Newark Avenue will be fully line with condos and apartments of every possible style within the next two years! Incredible!!!

As far as Van Leer Place, you keep leaving out the Elevations and renderings!

54 Bright St


28 Bright St




16 Bright St

Hello guys, I would like to know where I can clarify a question related to the City of New Jersey. I'm gonna explain.

I have a question about a model of the São Paulo subway that was built there in 1972 by a company called "Richard Gelak Associates Runnemede, New Jersey."

Where can I find more information about this company? Have any topic here in this forum?

I appreciate the attention
