Gene Kaufman Infects Jersey City

Besides Urban Ready Living and the Journal Square mega-project, yet another development will be breaking ground soon in Jersey City. 70 and 90 Columbus Street will be two 50-story buildings. The first to be built will be 70 Columbus, which will have 150 hotel rooms and 550 rental units above a retail base. 90 Columbus will be entirely residential.

Massive Jersey City mixed-use project set to begin construction in the spring


jclist

Construction will begin in the next two months at a long-stalled 1.2 million-square-foot mixed-use project in Jersey City, the architect for the project told The Real Deal today. The two 50-story towers, designed by Gwathmey Siegel Kaufman + Associates Architects, were approved by the Jersey City Municipal Council and Planning Board in December, clearing the way for the massive project to move ahead, according to Gene Kaufman, owner of GSKA.

The development will bring 150 hotel rooms and 1,000 rental apartments to 70 and 90 Columbus Street, in the downtown Jersey City area.

The $350 million project should break ground in the next few months, told The Real Deal, with construction on the first tower, at 70 Columbus Street, slated to be complete in 2015.

The project, developed by a partnership between Ironstate Development and Panepinto Properties, was first proposed in 2007, but ran into a number of delays after the credit crash. Last year, GKA replaced Costas Kondylis as the architect on the project.

The 70 Columbus tower will feature 550 apartments and a 20,000-square-foot retail space,

Now I know where the Deepwater Horizon Containment Dome Went!

The site is completely empty and untouched, with the exception of a gigantic steel structure that is probably 30-40 feet tall. Is it a stack of materials?

Freak accident:

Tape measure falls 50 stories, killing man at construction site



A man delivering drywall to a New Jersey construction site was killed Monday when a tape measure fell 50 stories, striking him on the head, authorities said.

The 1-pound tape measure became dislodged from the belt of a worker on the 50th floor and struck construction equipment about 10 to 15 feet from the ground, according to Carly Baldwin, a spokeswoman for Jersey City’s Department of Public Safety. It then ricocheted and struck Gary Anderson, 58, who had just stopped to speak with another worker who was in a pickup truck just before 9 a.m. in the city’s downtown section.

Anderson, of Somerdale, N.J., was taken to a hospital, where he died shortly before 10 a.m.
