From the light rail train it appears they've started working at the Van Leer site.
Yep. They closed off the parking lot and replaced the fences a few months back.

There's some heavy equipment on the "South" site (South of Hoboken Ave).





The other side also has new gravel and a portable toilet, along with some other trailers






I'm not sure if they plan to do them both at once, or one at a time.

4/9 - continued work on Soho House, digging at Van Leer Place South, nothing at Van Leer North or 286-298 Coles St











Van Leer North


Van Leer South - think they may be doing environmental remediation. That or foundation






220 Eighteenth St (site behind Lackawanna Warehouse) - LeFrank put up a rendering of a potential future building here. This site is also where they wanted to add a light rail station (assuming it takes up the entire block).




Statco Warehouse - Redevelopment Plan passed to add 3 26 story towers and a police station to the building. Same developer as Cast Iron Lofts

It is almost in this neighborhood, behind the Home Depot by Newport Mall. Two enormous towers, one 57 stories and one 59 stories high will go on a site here. Together they will have 750 apartments, 250,000 square feet of non-residential uses (likely offices with some retail, although the area is a pedestrian dead-zone and the Port Authority would probably like to keep it that way), and 1098 parking spots.

1) They really need to bury those power lines if they really want to make it a part of the 'city'
2) What is Van Leer going to look like again?

There are power lines all over the city. I doubt they'll be burying them anytime soon.

The last renderings from Van Leer Place (from Jerseydigs):





I assume one of those is Van Leer South.

Looks like the Statco Building/Emerson Lofts has started demolition. Manhattan Building Company (same company that build Cast Iron and SoHo Lofts) is constructing several news buildings around the factory (which will be partially reused).

Interesting, little-known fact: Toll Brothers, which has been developing Provost Square in the PAD, owns Manhattan Building Co., which is the developer of basically this entire neighborhood. So this neighborhood is basically Toll Brothers' largest urban development project.

Very interesting, but I'm not sure it's entirely true. From the company's website:

"As the owner and founder of The Manhattan Building Company in 1994, Mr. Weiss focused on multi-family residential communities. In 2003 he sold the company’s assets to the leading national home-building company Toll Brothers and, with their Chairman Robert Toll, created Toll’s urban brand with the formation of Toll’s City Living division. During his tenure with Toll Brothers Mr. Weiss served as City Living’s President, responsible for leadership of the entire division, and successfully completed the new company’s first project, the highly successful Sky Club Condominiums in Hoboken.

Upon a planned departure from Toll Brothers to pursue other development interests, Mr. Weiss formed White Diamonds Properties LLC, launching the development of the remarkable luxury communities The Cliffs Lofts in Jersey City, NJ and The Observer Lofts in Hoboken, NJ.

Mr. Weiss’s leadership responsibilities as CEO and Chief Developer of the reformed Manhattan Building Company include guiding the company..."

It sounds like he sold the company to Toll Brothers in 2003, then left somewhere in 2007-2008 and reformed Manhattan Building Co. I could ask around further but I'd be surprised if Toll Brothers still owned the current Manhattan Building Co

^^^ Good to see the suburban McMansion developers actually building up the dense cities.

Soho West - movement on six projects here - Van Leer North, 100 Hoboken Ave (the site next to it), 39 New York Ave (also the Hoboken Brownstone Company, same as Van Leer), Holiday Inn Express, the Emerson Lofts and the other 14th St development (just closing the lot). As this neighborhood fills out...I hope Jersey City remembers to add that light rail station.

Emerson Lofts/Statco Warehouse - looks like demolition continued after a long pause. Almost gone now










14th St - nothing really going on here, but this lot appears to have been closed. This is the site of a planned 18-story development




The Enclave - looks good






















Van Leer North




The site next door, 100 Hoboken Ave - 5 story building




Looks like the Hoboken Motorcycle Club still remains


2 Hoboken Ave site - the Hoboken Business Center is in Hoboken, but the parking lot is apparently in Jersey City


3 New York Ave (the Galaxy Recycling site) - going to be demolished for an 8 story building


39 New York Ave - 5 story building




Holiday Inn Express

So apparently - 100 Hoboken Ave and Van Leer (Enclave) 2 are both being built by the same company - some JV between Hoboken Brownstone and BNE Real Estate

See for yourself

Van Leer North:


100 Hoboken Ave


Both of these are under construction

From 1/12 - several buildings in this area under construction or in some stage of it:
- Emerson Lofts
- Van Leer North
- 100 Hoboken Ave
- 39 New York Ave
- 3 New York Ave (site fenced off and awaiting demo)

Additionally, the project signage for the Coles Street Park is up, and part of the site of the massive 286-298 Coles St project (~1200 units) was recently cleared again

Emerson Lofts






The site across the street from it - no real movement


286-298 Coles Street - recently cleared up again
