JERSEY CITY—The first phase of construction of Jersey's soon-to-be tallest residential tower broke ground on Tuesday. The mixed-use development known as Journal Squared, a not-entirely witty riff on the name of the neighborhood it will rise in, will be comprised of three towers erected at the corner of Pavonia and Summit avenues. When complete, the buildings designed by HWKN and Handel Architects will have 1,838 rentals and 36,000 sqaure feet of retail and restaurant space, and rise 53, 60, and 70 stories.
