^^^ That is a good start towards a future curb bumpout. They should be implemented on every crosswalk next to parallel parking.

FYI there is now an excavator on site at 87-97 Newkirk (14 stories, 113 homes, 2 floors of offices and ground-floor retail). Has not started digging yet, though.

Construction Officially Begins on 87 Newkirk Street in Journal Square

Construction Officially Begins on 87 Newkirk Street in Journal Square

By Gillian Blair - May 8, 2018

Last Thursday, May 3, Mayor Fulop and the Namdar Group officially broke ground for the 87 Newkirk Street development near Journal Square. The 15-story building will bring 132 apartments to the neighborhood as well as 25,000 square feet of shared office space and 1,500 square feet of retail space.

87 Newkirk Street is the first Jersey City project for the New York-based Namdar Group — a family-owned-and-operated real estate investment and development firm in Great Neck. The project team also includes C3D Architecture, Severud and Associates (structural team), and KEA as the MEP engineers.

“Namdar Group strategically invests in markets that have significant growth potential, and Jersey City — particularly the Journal Square neighborhood — certainly fits that criteria,” stated Effy Namdar of Namdar Group. “We’re extremely excited to embark on our first project here, and we would like to thank Jersey City leadership for supporting our vision.”

Mayor Fulop reiterated that Namdar Group’s focus now and moving forward is off the waterfront and Effy Namdar stated they are “all in on Journal Square.” The event was brief to beat last week’s heat, but the unseasonably high temps did not diminish the enthusiasm for the development. Mayor Fulop concluded that 87 Newkirk Street will be a great asset to the neighborhood.

Journal Square activity picking up quite a bit. 87 Newkirk under construction, 61 Newkirk topped out, 156 Academy actually under construction, 190 Academy...not so much. Both 74 Jordan Ave and 28 Vroom St (6 and 5 stories, respectively) have been demolished, although my feeling is 28 Vroom St is the likelier to get built sooner. On the north side of the tracks, the Central Ave extension seems to have begun with the demolition of several buildings. Construction has also started on 78 Cottage (or 74-76 - a bit tricky to tell).

75-81 Jordan Ave


More recently demolished 28 Vroom St


362 Summit






190 Academy - still...digging?




156 Academy






Complete-looking HCCC STEM




880 Bergen Ave






96 Tuers Ave - awaiting demolition


more buildings looking close to their end dates - 37-47 High St




3 Perrine Ave - taking a mighty long time with that facade


61 Newkirk




87 Newkirk - under construction






34-36 Jones St - building was demolished since the Google Maps shot was taken


61-63 Sip Ave - this building (first on Jones St with the Doctor's Office sign - https://www.google.com/maps/@40.730...4!1sMbxWKxQmmMi2u7CixoPPeA!2e0!7i13312!8i6656) was recently demolished. Haven't seen anything about it


3 Journal Square - complete


74-76, or 78 Cottage St - it actually looks like both sites are being built, but it's hard to tell. 78 Cottage St is approved for a 5 story hotel and 74-76 Cottage St is a 9 story residential building


60 Cottage St - also recently demolished


Nothing at 2973 JFK Blvd


134 Cottage St


Small completed homes




22 Liberty Ave




276 and 270 St Pauls Ave


61 and 63 Skillman Ave


Central Ave extension - some buildings have been demolished. It's unfortunate the 2 brick ones are, they are quite nice














New Court House site


Homestead Assemblage - boarded up buildings


55 Washburn St


345 Baldwin


348 Baldwin - for sale


And the two big boys of the neighborhood

Journal Squared Phase 2 - under construction


One Journal Square - Not.

15-Story Complex Could Tower Over Jersey City Neighborhood with Almost 300 Units

A public notice shows that a 15-story building is being proposed for this property located at the corner of Washburn Street in Ward C. Should developer Overlook, LLC’s application for Preliminary and Final Major Site Plan approval with deviations such as maximum height and minimum retail depth be approved by the Jersey City Planning Board, the project would consist of 297 units along with commercial space on the ground floor. In addition, two floors of office space would be included in the building and 181 “automated parking spaces” would be provided on the premises.

Alura - almost complete




253 Academy - boarded up, possibly soon to be demolished


880 Bergen Ave


87 Newkirk St






61 Newkirk St




34 Jones St


180 Baldwin Ave - possibly recently delivered construction trailer and some dirt moving around?




3 Perrine Ave


26-28 Cottage St - 20 story building proposed. - looks like demo is imminent


74-76 Cottage St - still not sure if this is the 5 or 9 story building being built. Will be clear in a month or so




This might be 78 Cottage St, where the 5 story building is proposed


Govinda Sanskar Center on Newark Ave being demolished and rebuilt


22 Liberty Ave


270 and 276 St Pauls Ave

3060 JFK Blvd - proposed 14 story building. Probably similar to the other one but newer obviously.


695-707 Newark Ave - proposed 20 story hotel and building on the site of this parking lot. It's a good thing too, the parking lot seems to cause lots of traffic when busy on this part of Newark


Central Ave extension - demolition complete




32 Oakland Ave - 14 story building proposed


345 Baldwin Ave - not sure if the truck is related to potential ongoing demolition of this site?


View down Newkirk Ave - in the future, the first building on the right is possibly going to be replaced by a 12 story building, and a 6 story building will rise in front of 61 Newkirk (yellow building UC on the left).

The amount of development going up in Journal Square is astounding and some of it is actually of a decent architectural quality!
