Following years of dispute and litigation, the Jersey City Planning Board has officially granted Kushner Companies necessary approvals to begin construction on One Journal Square, a two-skyscraper complex in downtown Jersey City. Designed by Woods Bagot, the buildings will comprise 2 million square feet and stand 710 feet tall.

Following the successful resolution of recent litigation with Jersey City, a new design has been released for Kushner Companies’ planned two-towered high rise residential development at 1 Journal Square Plaza, in Jersey City‘s Journal Square. Also known as 1 Journal Square, construction is expected to break ground in 2021. The revised designs would add two major skyscrapers to the neighborhood’s growing skyline, both standing over 700 feet to their rooftops.
Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop this week announced that all litigation between the city, Kushner Companies, and the Jersey City Redevelopment Agency has concluded. The agreement settles lawsuits brought by Kushner Companies beginning in 2018 regarding construction delays at 1 Journal Square, a forthcoming residential development in Jersey City.
Construction is complete at Hero LIC, a 22-story condominium building at 24-16 Queens Plaza South in Long Island City, Queens. Designed by Woods Bagot Architects and developed by Silverback Development, the 284-foot-tall tower features a striking Art-Moderne design and contains a mix of studios, one-, and two-bedroom layouts, many of which offer private balconies. The Serhant Team at Nest Seekers International is handling the sales and marketing for the 109 units.
The Landmarks Preservation Commission will again review proposals to partially renovate the ground floor of the historic Emigrant Industrial Savings Bank. The building is located at 49-51 Chambers Street in the Civic Center and could eventually house an immersive digital museum and gallery with rotating exhibitions.
