It looks like it fits in quite well. I can't wait for this and the many others to all be under construction.

^^^501 Summit won't be a building for quite a while. Unfortunately the developers got approval last year from the Planning Board for a variance to allow an interim surface parking lot at the site.

In other news, the city lost again in court trying to block another development, the 42-story HAP tower at 500 Summit. They will now appeal to the NJ Supreme Court, but the odds aren't good that they'll win (90% of appeals are outright rejected by the Supreme Court, and most of the appeals that are not rejected are affirmed):

From two weeks ago

3 JSQ
This side looks done..




While there's still cladding ongoing on this one




landscaping


134 Cottage St


850 Newark Ave




22 Liberty Ave


Skillman Ave buildings








2851 JFK Blvd




HCCC




880 Bergen Ave




362 Summit Ave




190 Academy aka Nest Micro Apartments - currently digging


with 362 Summit


156-160 Academy St - nothing going on currently, but the machine is always changing. I wonder who is using the space


60-62 Newkirk St




61 Newkirk Ave - odd construction. The foundations seemed to be in, and then they dug a hole..


3 Perrine Ave


501 Summit Ave - a temporary parking lot. Probably a good thing, since the original plan was for a 4 story building. Perhaps they can revise that in the meantime.




Others

The building next to 880 Bergen... is it intended to be residential or commercial because it looks really oddly cladded?

I'm stumped why the Burger King lot right by the Journal Squared development is intended to become a four story Social Security office... thankfully they have decided as you mentioned to make the lot next to it a parking lot for now because I think both would be wasted as low rises. Especially when other than 500 Summit (the proposed HAP tower)NOTHING on the other side of Summit has a chance in hell to be developed as other than a low rise because of Boggiano and the crazy Hilltop crowd(and we need one more New Jersey court decision to hear or not attempts to block the development even as every judgement so far sided with the owners of that development for it to finally get developed) will never stand for any more on that side of Summit. Those two lots should go mid rise or high when you have the opportunity and land to do so. I think they wasted prime land already when they made the HCCC library building only five or six floors on Sip Avenue.

They are shuffling a lot of dirt around at 134 Baldwin (NE corner of Baldwin and Academy) in Journal Square. Not sure if they are actually going to start construction/excavation or just moving dirt to clear room for equipment storage.

The plan is for 91 apartments.

It seems like that lot is for equipment storage, or has been for a few years. Maybe if they are actually moving dirt around something is happening?

The HCCC building (building next to 880 Bergen) does look a bit odd, but nothing too crazy - kind of how you'd expect a semi-modern building to look next to older ones. There's actually a new project going in front of the planning board for the lot right next to it (the small building to its left) to be replaced by a 5 story, 81 (!) unit building. That'll probably help it fit in a bit more.

The unit count on that building (known as 253 Academy) is high because it's a micro-unit building...practically all the apartments are small-ish studios. It'll be on an L-shaped lot made up of the lot with the lawyer's offices to the left of the HCCC building on the corner of Academy, plus the adjacent lot on Tuers currently occupied by a wood-frame house and a driveway.


253 Academy won't be approved for now, according to some friends who work at a government agency involved. They require 3 deviations (they allowances for: 3 extra feet of height, the L-shaped lot, and for not including the two 3-bedroom units required by the JSQ zoning). A local neighborhood group is opposing the variances for several reasons. The Planning Board will likely vote to deny the variances so long as the neighborhood group opposes it.

Hopefully the developer can do something to satisfy the neighborhood group without reducing the amount of housing and without delaying the project too much or driving costs up to the point where it becomes infeasible. Or it can redesign the building not to have any deviations.

It looks like the site at 134 Academy might actually have started for real this time. They've stripped the dirt down to the bedrock (not sure if they've cut into the bedrock yet). One of the challenging things about building on the east side of Summit Have is the exceptionally hard Palisades bedrock, which you can clearly see in the first picture below:

More activity at the 134 Academy site. This one looks like it's definitely going to be U/C soon.

And the site at Waldo and Newark Ave (24 units) is under construction. They've filled in a deep hole on part of the site with a concrete foundation, and there is an excavator on site.

From yesterday:

160 Academy (134 Baldwin) is definitely digging/construction.




And its proximity to 180 Baldwin, the big 4-tower project that still hasn't shown any sign of activity (on left after the brown building)


362 Summit St




362 Summit and 190 Academy




3 Perrine Ave - is quite big relative to its surroundings




61 Newkirk St


880 Bergen






HCCC and 253 Academy site


2851 JFK Blvd
