Work on the second phase of Journal Squared at 537 Summit Avenue in Jersey City is progressing rapidly. Construction workers are pouring the floor slabs for what will become a 72-story residential skyscraper. The structure is set to stand 759 feet and become the tallest of the proposed trio of towers, of which one is already completed next door. All three are being designed by HWKN/Hollwich Kushner and Handel Architects. Kushner Real Estate Development is the developer of the entire site, which sits adjacent to the Journal Square PATH train station on a hill overlooking New York City. The second phase will yield 700 units, 18,000 square feet of retail space, and a gross floor space of roughly 1,000,000 square feet.
Work has officially begun on The Huguenot, one of latest developments to begin construction as part of an initiative to transform and reinvigorate downtown New Rochelle.

The structure will top off at six stories and measure approximately 54,000 square feet.
