Jersey City has approved plans for Kushner Companies' 30 Journal Square tower to begin construction.
Instead of its formerly slated height of 650 feet, YIMBY has revealed that the Morris Adjmi-designed project will top out at a soaring 72 stories. According to the approved plans, the building will have 741 apartments, just over 15,000 square feet of retail space, and 96,602 square feet of office space. Residential units with terraces will start around the building’s halfway mark. There will also be a public plaza and a 741-space parking lot.
As for the building’s facade, the rendering depicts an industrial, yet sleek glassy shell with large boxy windows. It’s possible that the building will take the title of tallest tower in Jersey City, but only until 99 Hudson Street rises to surpass it at its projected height of 79 stories.
A completion date for the tower hasn’t been announced as of yet.
This project is unaffiliated with Hollwich Kushner's Journal Squared development, which is bringing three towers with 1,800 new apartments to the area.
