Permits have been submitted to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for work on 30 Journal Square, a proposed 841-foot-tall mixed-use skyscraper in Jersey City. Located at the southern corner of Slip Avenue and Bergen Avenue, the project is being designed by Morris Adjmi Architects and developed by Kushner Companies, which acquired the site for $3.575 million in 2013. The permits filed are for work between December 2019 and December 2022, so activity at the site could begin by the end of the year.

Kushner’s website indicates that 30 Journal Square will have 741 residential units, 15,000 square feet of retail space, and nearly 100,000 square feet of office space. A curated sculpture garden will sit on the ground floor. The outside curtain wall features a bold pattern that goes up the entire height, and incorporates what appears to be expansive outdoor balconies on the residential portion. Situated on a hilltop, the tower will give future residents and tenants clear views of the downtown Jersey City skyline, Lower Manhattan, and Midtown, as well as plenty of daylight.

The PATH trains at Journal Square are a five-minute walk from the property. Along with the nearby trio of residential skyscrapers at Journal Square, the construction at 30 Journal Square will help contribute to this isolated section of the Jersey City skyline. The development also sits 91 feet above ground level, which will visually elevate the height of the proposed skyscraper. In addition, these two large projects will revitalize and invigorate this part of the city with more living spaces and new energy.

If the FAA permits are any indicator, work is expected to wrap by December of 2022.

  1. I can’t persuade you to be more sensible, because your report rolled on reasons enough. I am not person who opposes progress with its beautiful design. (Thanks to Michael Young)

    At this height, perhaps Jared will be able to see it from his cell.
