JC just needs one super tall to tie it all together.

The lot that Metropolis Towers are sitting on needs to be redeveloped. Two outdated towers on a surface lot in the heart of Jersey City, right by the PATH? Awful. Perfect spot for a huge mixed use development. Hotel, retail, residential.

A few years ago, the Metropolis Towers were planning a huge redevelopment of the property. It included plans for the first Whole Foods which would have been situated between the towers. They proposed building a pedestrian walkway with retail space along Columbus Drive and Marin that would resemble an extension of Newark Ave. They also proposed a Phase 2 which would add a third tower on the western portion of the site. More details here. Not really sure why plans fell through. I think after Whole Foods pulled out, everything else became less feasible. Redeveloping the whole site would be way better, but this would have been a step forward from how it looks now.

Rumor is that the co-op owner/residents of the Metropolis Towers apartments voted the proposal down (i.e., refused to sell their air rights to develop the Whole Foods etc).

:roll_eyes: Well it’s their loss. Eventually, it will get redeveloped. That’s a lot of empty land sitting idle.

JC needs a lot more for the actual ground level to be enjoyable, but for the skyline yes. Only a supertall is needed.

The west facade facing Jersey City could have been waay better. But still, it’s looking good.

I really like this shot. Really showcases the JC skyline. If we recall 2004, it has changed ten-fold. There is an uber high quality version in the flickr below, I believe 5000x3400.
