This is the parcel of land just north of the Goldman Sachs tower. It is currently owned by Goldman Sachs. Currently it is a parking garage.
Plans are for a “40 story mixed-use tower containing 924 dwelling units, 12,017 sq ft of ground floor retail, reuse of existing garage with 467 parking spaces and tenant amenity space.”
The Goldman Sachs parking lot across the street at 55 Hudson is also being redeveloped, into a 56-story tower. See this thread: JERSEY CITY | 55 Hudson St | 637 FT | 56 FLOORS
Love that JC is losing the parking lots and gaining more skyscrapers.
Given the hieght of the Goldman Sachs tower and 99 Hudson, I’m actually surprised how short this proposed tower is. They could definitely go taller if they wanted to. 40 floors is actually “short” for the area.
Jersey City could request more innovative designs on our waterfront but this is what we get ¯_(ツ)_/¯
The level of value engineering that goes in the US gets weirder when looking internationally. Getting anything more than a glass box is difficult here. Whereas what we would call “creative architecture” is par for the course in Asia, Europe, South America, and even Africa.
There arent many waterfront plots left. Really wish we could get something just a little bit more creative and thought out. Height is one thing but composing the waterfront cityscape seems to be even more of an afterthought.
