Journal Squared

A Centerpiece of Urban Revitalization

This three tower development, and its 1,800 new apartments, is designed to be a social generator that transforms residents into neighbors and friends. The towers break into smaller units as they meet the ground to match the scale of the local neighborhood. They energize the area’s street life with retail and public spaces and create a new front door to the PATH station with a pedestrian plaza. Each building’s entrance stretches up the height of the towers to tell millions of people seeing them from Manhattan and the New Jersey Turnpike that Journal Square has arrived—and that Journal Squared is the welcome mat.
