On Thursday, March 30, 2017, join the Harvard Alumni Architecture and Urban Society for a tour of Journal Squared with Matthias Hollwich of Hollwich Kushner. The Tour will be followed by a happy hour in the skylounge compliments of Chief David Trotta of Whealth. Small plates, wine and beer will be served.
Journal Squared is a mixed-use project in Jersey City, NJ. It is part of the redevelopment of Journal Square, a vibrant area which has not seen any new large-scale development for decades. The 53-story tower is designed as part of a three building development that will also include a 63-story and a 71-story tower when complete. A component of the design is a complete overhaul of what was the rear entrance to the PATH Station into an inviting and vibrant transit hub. When completed, the mixed-use 2,300,000 sq ft development will comprise 1,839 residential units, and a comprehensive suite of amenities. Indoor and outdoor pools as well as a gym are part of the 31,500 sf amenity package. Each tower features exquisitely appointed Sky Lounges on their top floors to take advantage of the truly breathtaking views. Journal Squared is being developed in a partnership led by Murray and Jonathan Kushner of The KRE Group and National Real Estate Advisors.
The tour will begin promptly at 6:45. We will meet in the residential lobby of Journal Squared located at 615 Pavonia Avenue.
