It was approved by the planning board last year. JerseyDigs has a model showing the building from a different angle:

JC YIMBY forumers, keep an eye out on this one—there’s construction equipment on site and part of the site is fenced off. However there’s a townhouse already on the site that would need to be demolished before this could begin construction.

The construction equipment started demoing a small auxiliary structure on the site today. But I spoke with the owner of the bodega/smoke shop on the ground floor of the townhouse. He confirmed that theyre getting ready to demo the townhouse , but not for another 2 or 3 months. So you’ve got a while to stock up on smoke-shop goodies before this begins construction :wink:

They need a better rendering for this, for shizzle

Confirmed that the bodega is coming down in less than two months:

Who knows whether they’ll start construction right after demo, though. Some sites stay vacant for a while.

good article. nice to hear a store owner who isn’t one of those vanishing ny nimbys.

Agreed. Actually it’s interesting, they’ve done a bunch of interviews with store owners in this series and they generally feel the same way.

Marchetto Higgins Stieve has some renderings on their website. I don’t know how long these have been up. The site is still an operating parking lot; let’s see what happens at the end of February!

Today. Looks like the smoke shop/convenience store is closed.

They have started test piling and they have already demolished one of the two buildings on the site. Counts as progress. Get ready for another large construction shed over Marin Blvd next year.

Site is cleared. It is still used as a parking lot during the day however, so not sure how long the developer will take to get this started. Photos courtesy of Oron Zchut on Skyscrapercity.

The lot is clear and back to a temp parking lot.

This site was closed off today, with a pile driver and steel piles on site!

I’ll move it to u/c based on that info.

Thanks @apophenic

Usually pile drivers are a good start. Hopefully activity will ramp up sometime this summer.

Thanks chris, but I should mention that the piles and the driver were just being delivered yesterday. They hadn’t started actually driving them into the ground yet (though the locations where the piles will go were marked off with stakes).

Wish I’d taken photos but my cell phone always dies at moments like that!

Probably gonna be a couple of weeks before actual piles in the ground, I imagine.

Marchetto Higgins Stieve has updated their renders for this project with two new schemes. I believe they chose the glassy one from the spec sheet they provided on the site.

Someone on Wired NY has mentioned that they have started hammering in test piles on both sites, so construction seems imminent.

Here are 331 in the foreground and 351 in the background across Bay St. Test piles visible in both sites:
