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.
Construction is slow going at Hotel Indigo, which broke ground in 2017 and is still on the rise in Manhattan’s Financial District.

Permits have been filed for a 19-story mixed-use building at 82 East 127th Street in East Harlem, Manhattan.

Artimus is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Beckford House, located at 301 East 81st Street, and Beckford Tower at 301 East 80th Street, are two new developments in the Upper East Side neighborhood of Yorkville.

New York City’s Board of Standards and Appeals again upheld the development and construction of 200 Amsterdam Avenue despite years of pushback from both neighborhood groups and members of the State Supreme Court. In possible protest of state-level overreach, the board’s vote of support will allow SJP Properties to legally continue construction of the 668-foot tower.
