Some of the smaller projects (north-northeast of Lincoln Park)










St Shenouda Coptic Orthodox Church

From the past week/week and a half - I went out for photos twice, so you can see some of the changes in the buildings

144 First St - looks like it's getting ready to start, but there's a lawsuit outstanding against it


518 Jersey Ave




A week at 208 Columbus Dr




The Hemlock (235 Newark Ave) - revealed and it looks nice. So much nicer than its neighbor


415 Monmouth St - being reconstructed




305 3rd St


156-166 Brunswick St


143 Brunswick St - cleared


375 5th St




332 Newark Ave




386 5th St


338 Newark Ave






333 Newark Ave




320.5 6th Street - it'll be finished eventually, right?


330 5th St


303 4th St


59 Coles St - looks complete


One week at 48 Coles St




JCMC Expansion




Jersey Ave extension


There is a lot of work going on on the sites by the Jersey Ave extension. I'm not sure if they are part of the old Crescent Park proposal or different projects on 33-39 Aetna and 36-50 Aetna. As far as I can tell it's just infrastructure work that may or may not be related to either of those projects...but there is a lot of work going on on both of those sites.








98 Colgate


370 First St


153 Morgan St


361 Newark Ave - this building was completed some time ago, but they appear to be punching out some space for a storefront or two


Holland Tunnel Pier Replacement - is complete, but doesn't seem open yet (I think it's supposed to be?). The park and walkway have reopened so you can once again walk all the way through.


Pier 6 - once supposed to be an office building or two, now slated for 5 residential buildings (and an insane amount of parking)


The end of the Ellipse pier, which had a park proposal rejected (for being too private)


170 Erie St


268 Varick - just about done


87 Bright St


201 Cornelison Ave - almost complete


530 Montgomery - demolished, new mosque will be built

Why are there so many utility poles at 370 First ?!?
There are lots of utility poles in JC. The city didn't bury utilities downtown so they're just everywhere.

On First Street specifically, a few years ago I thought they were burying them but instead they added (not even replaced existing) much taller utility poles with more wires, so that's probably why it looks even crazier in front of 370 First.

I wish we could petition the city to spend the money to bury the lines. Or make the developers chip in for it too

I am happy to see the Al-Tawheed Islamic Center moving along and that they appear to be keeping the facade design. The renders look very unique and modern.

Al-Tawheed Islamic Center

I wonder what the Coptic church and the other mosque will look like.

I can't wait to see that facade on 136 Summit, and the Coptic Church and other Mosque have great designs.
