JERSEY CITY | 10 Provost Street at Provost Square | FT | 33 FLOORS

The two completed phases involved two ground-up 38-story towers. This phase involves adaptive re-use of the Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company Building (more commonly known as A&P).

EDIT: Here is the rendering, from Jersey Digs. Phase I is the tower on the left. Phase 3 is the tower on the right.

Demo/site prep is currently happening on the old A&P Building. Pictures by JC Heights:

Construction of the tower portion of Phase III will begin around Dec 31, according to this filing (see page 2):

The letter was part of a Toll Brothers request asking the city’s planning department for a one-year extension on approvals for Provost Square’s fourth phase, which would be constructed on a surface parking lot at 352 Marin Boulevard.

The final portion of the project is set to rise five stories and feature 32 workforce housing units, another 2,600 square feet of ground-floor retail, and a rooftop recreation space. That application was submitted in October but hasn’t been considered by the planning board yet.

The Jersey Digs article also mentions a fourth phase which is the parking lot in front of the Bucket and Bay Gelato building.

Didn’t know they had a 4th phase or owned that other lot. That parking lot definitely needs to go. It should hold something more than a 5 story building though if each other corner will have a 40 story tower.

Yeah, I had no idea as well! Actually, I’m fine with a short retail building. It’s already going to be a tall canyon, it’ll need some shorter buildings to even it out. And with a shorter building, there’s potential for a higher budget on its design since it’s not very tall.

Aesthetically you might be right, but a location this close to the train can probably do better than a 5-story building.

I doubt they’ll spend any more money to make it look good just because it’s shorter

Still quiet here - should be starting sometime this quarter though

I was driving by today and they have started interior demolition of the warehouse. Didn’t get a chance to take a photo. Already underway!

It’s been underway for a bit I believe, although I’m never around during the day to see. I can probably take a look tomorrow to see if anything is actually moving

Really stripping this one down to the studs. Of the more interesting construction processes I’ve seen here

I believe it’s called a facademy, although I don’t know if that’s a technical term. It’s used a lot in Toronto, where only the facade “skin” of the building is maintained and is essentially cladding on the base of the new building. Seems pretty similar here

From two weeks ago and then 1 week ago (last 3 pictures)

What is the point of saving the old building if they demolish almost all of it including the facade? I’m pretty sure there is nothing left on the outside walls.

Classic facadectomy…

About a month ago they demoed the ground floor slab - doesn’t seem like they fully dug out the foundation though. There hasn’t been much movement since then

No movement for now - maybe holding pattern

Well, they filed some updated plans a few weeks ago.

Now, it looks like they’ve restarted some work

From today
