Continuing the discussion from JERSEY CITY | Journal Square 2060 Redevelopment Plan:
by Al Sullivan | May 25, 2014
City Planner Robert Cotter said that the owner of a property currently used for a parking lot had proposed to construct only a five-story building. But City Council President Rolando Lavaro said he believes the owner is looking to sell the property to a third party. Lavaro said the sale would be conditioned on a change of zoning that would permit a 16-story building.
“This latest development will be constructed in the McGinley Square neighborhood at 711 Montgomery Street, at the southwest corner of Jordan Avenue. The tract currently contains a private parking lot. When completed, according to GRID Real Estate, the upper levels of the project will consist of 272 residential rental units, including 103 studios, 137 one-bedrooms, 26 two-bedrooms, and six 3-bedrooms. Meanwhile, the ground floor is set to include around 5,000 square feet of retail space.”
Small equipment on site. Probably not related to construction, but one can always hope
There was larger equipment on the site before but that was months ago. Maybe they’re waiting to see how well the other developments nearby will do.
Interesting to know. It appears to me that perhaps 289 Jordan Street, if it does well, will usher in development in McGinley Square the same way Journal Squared did for Journal Square.
More material sitting here. But perhaps for some other development (289 Jordan?)
Not sure this means anything, but there’s some dirt movement here
Maybe the start of soil testing, but could also just be a staging site for other construction. But hopefully it’s the start of it. Thanks for all the updates!
I think it’s staging for 289 Jordan, based on the panels disappearing and 289 Jordan growing…
They gotta stop with the teasing - still being used for some other site, presumably
From the end of August - another month, more random stuff in the lot
This one got its construction permit today. Might start soon…but there are still cars parked in the parking lot this morning, so maybe not? Though we’ve seen with 1075 West Side Ave and 100 Colden, it’s not 100% guaranteed, most of the time projects like this start within a few weeks of the construction permit being issued.
Well, they always seem to be storing material on the site, but I can never tell for what project. The only one that seems to be the right size is 289 Jordan, but that one’s mostly complete.
Parking lot was still (partly) open as well.
