Journal Squared

A Centerpiece of Urban Revitalization

This highly anticipated mixed-use project heralds a new generation of development for Journal Square, New Jersey, a vibrant area which has not seen any new large-scale development for decades.

Journal Squared sits directly adjacent to the Journal Square PATH Station. Its size is a continuation of the dense transit-oriented development that has arisen further to the east in Jersey City. The 53-story Phase One tower is designed as part of a three building development that will also include a 63-story and a 71-story tower. When complete, these three towers, and their 1,800 new apartments, are designed to be a social generator that transforms residents into neighbors and friends. 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.
