Another 52-Story Tower Set to Rise in Jersey City at 25 Columbus Drive

Jersey City’s boom only seems to be getting more impressive as the year goes on, and now another tower is set to rise on the city’s skyline, at 25 Columbus Drive. The 52-story building will be designed by Handel Architects and developed by L+M Development Partners, and will have 750 rental apartments, a 35,000 square-foot school, four storefronts covering 16,485 square feet of retail space, and a public plaza, according to Jersey Digs. No completion date has been announced yet.

Cornell Tech Campus

Construction Complete on First Phase of Cornell Tech’s Roosevelt Island Campus

The first few components of Cornell’s new tech campus on Roosevelt Island are finally complete, and Tectonic has sent along photos documenting the progress. The development consists of 700,000 total square feet sprawling across an academic building, an incubator dubbed “The Bridge,” and a high-rise residential tower, which had topped-out as of YIMBY’s last update on the site, from June of 2016. Handel Architects is responsible for the design of the first phase of the project, but Skidmore Owings & Merrill is taking charge of the master plan, which will result in a new “Executive Education Center and Hotel” rising by 2019, as well.
