Thanks! I'll be walking downtown either Friday or Saturday, check the lot out... incredible to think how in a few years another one of the biggest residential towers in Jersey City will be up and going! And so much will be happening around it with Urby filling out and Harborside 8 and 9 as well!

Mack-Cali Submits Plans for 68-Story Tower in Downtown Jersey City



Quote:
In another sign that the vertical building boom happening along the Hudson River’s west bank isn’t slowing down, one of Jersey City’s most prominent companies is looking to replace part of a parking lot with a sky-high development that would be one of the tallest in the state.

Earlier this month, a corporation named Plaza VIII & IX Associates LLC applied to the city’s planning department seeking approvals for a new project. The company is a subsidiary of Mack-Cali’s Roseland Residential Trust and the parcel they would develop is a 169,000-square-foot surface parking lot located at 242 Hudson Street and 3 Second Street.

The vision for the land is bold, as the development would construct a 68-story building that rises just over 708 feet at the highest point. The mixed-use project, which has been referred to as Harborside 8/9 by Mack-Cali in the past, would feature 680 residential units paired with 18,662-square-feet of commercial space.

Permits Filed For 68-Story Tower At 242 Hudson Street In Jersey City

Quote:
Permits have been filed for a 68-story mixed-use skyscraper at 242 Hudson Street in Jersey City. If approved, the 708-foot-tall building would be among the tallest structures in the state of New Jersey. Plaza VIII & IX Associates LLC, a subsidiary of Mack-Cali’s Roseland Residential Trust, is responsible for the development, which has previously been referred to as Harborside 8 and 9.

The proposed development will yield 680 residential units, 18,662 square feet of commercial space, and 505 parking spaces, of which 329 would be located within the building. The residential component will include 206 studios, 266 one-bedrooms, 183 two-bedrooms, and 25 three-bedrooms. The property is located steps from the Harborside light rail station on the New Jersey Transit.

Boston-based Elkus Manfredi Architects is listed as the architect of record.

Not sure if anything is really starting here yet, but when I walked by last weekend there were some piles of fences and cones. Not the construction variety (looks shorter term), but maybe I'll keep an eye on this site

Looks kind of like just a massing rendering right now but the height is impressive!

Maybe it will do the important job of obscuring that ridiculous URL® Building from Manhattan. For that I will be forever grateful

*Shocking* how quickly the fad of designing towers to look like an askew stack of books came, and went. Not quick enough for JC unfortunately.

There will be three identical URL buildings. In fact the second one is scheduled to break ground this year.

I like them, and doubt they'll be totally blocked by upcoming towers.

Yeah, it's definitely going to be a motif associated with this era in architecture. It's a weird design decision.
I think it evolved from museums and civic buildings where the "stacked boxes" concept made sense for the plan, for views, or for solar reasons.
It makes a lot less contextual sense for taller buildings, imo.
I think architects think it makes the building look "dynamic" but it often just looks messy.

It would be the 4th tallest if built now. 99 Hudson, 30 Hudson, JQ Phase II are all taller.

Jersey City Approves Mack-Cali’s 68-Story Harborside 8 Development

Quote:
The vertical building boom along the Hudson River’s west bank has undoubtedly changed the Jersey City skyline over the last decade and a new development looking to replace part of a parking lot with a sky-high building has cleared its first major hurdle.

In October last year, Jersey Digs first reported on a proposed development from a corporation named Plaza VIII & IX Associates LLC. A subsidiary of Mack-Cali’s Roseland Residential Trust, a submitted application wished to develop part of a 169,000-square-foot surface parking lot the company owns located at 242 Hudson Street and 3 Second Street.

Known as Harborside 8, the development will feature 680 residential units broken down as 206 studios, 266 one-bedrooms, 183 two-bedrooms, and 25 three-bedrooms. Because the property falls within the East Waterfront District of the Harsimus Cove Redevelopment Plan, no affordable units are included in the project, as none are required.

Besides the living spaces, a total of 505 parking spaces are included in Harborside 8. 329 of them will be inside a garage within the building’s first eight floors, while the remaining 176 spaces will be located on a portion of the surface parking lot set to remain for now under the plans.

Designed by Boston-based Elkus Manfredi Architects, the ground floor of Harborside 8 will sport two retail storefronts, one facing the Hudson River spanning 5,437 square feet and the other facing Hudson Street and totaling 3,225 square feet.

Per Reddit, the parking lot closed. I passed by here a few days ago and took a few shots

Scheduled to begin Oct. 1 of this year. The virus probably delay that start date. 724ft is also given to this building for the "highest point"
