The second and tallest of the towers at Journal Squared will launch leasing in March. Immediately adjacent to the Journal Square Transportation Center, Journal Squared is a three-phase luxury rental development and phase one’s 53-story tower leased up in 10 months. Phase two tops out at 68 stories with 704 units and 70,000 square feet of indoor/outdoor amenities.

Journal Squared was developed by KRE Group in partnership with National Real Estate Advisors and they have once again tapped The Marketing Directors as the exclusive marketing and leasing agent.

Designed by HWKN Architects, Journal Squared 2 has a mix of micro-studios, studios, one-, two-, and three-bedroom units, plus one-bedrooms with a den. Initial occupancy is slated for April 1.

  1. What the hell is a “micro-studio?” These developers are getting greedier and greedier and Fulop continues to look away as the money rolls in. JC is turning into the new Manhattan with postage-stamp-sized apartments. Yuck.

  2. Having different sized apartments makes the building more accessible to more people. A retiree or low-income individual who would have been priced out now is able to afford to live in this building. There is nothing greedy about it. Greed would be exclusive 3-bedroom luxury apartments. This is great for residents of Jersey City.

  3. Considering the amount of empty apartments available in tower one, this is going to turn into one huge white elephant.

  4. Look to the nearby Nest Micro apartments as an example. There is a market for small units being offered to students and short term contract workers. Nest for example offers units partly furnished and leases starting at 3 months. Time will tell if this market survived the pandemic and bounces back.

  5. Your site is so riddled with ads that it has become virtually impossible to navigate and read. Your greed knows no bounds! I won’t be attempting it anymore. Too frustrating.
